Skink Champion & Kroxigor

This week I put together & painted a Skink Champion & a Kroxigor for my fledgling Lustria-themed Warhammer Quest set.  The Skink Champion is a simple build using a basic plastic Skink (the most decorated one, with the big crest), with shoulder pads from the Saurus Warrior sprue, & a glyph from the Temple Guard sprue on his shield.  I painted the shoulder pads as hardwood gilded with gold, rather than solid gold, reasoning that the weight would probably be too much for a diminutive Skink.  The Kroxigor is one of the older metal models, but the overall look still matches the newer plastic Lizardmen.

I still have a large ebay haul of Lizardmen sprues & pieces to build the core of my Lustria collection, as well as some large beasties.  Need to get hold of some miniatures for the various vermin (giant spiders etc).  I'm trying to focus on these before moving onto the Empire & zombie parts that I have to build some zombie pirates & zombie conquistadors; so that I can run a Lizardmen & general nasties dungeon, without the oddity of having zombies wandering around in the same chambers.  Other expansions that fit the Lustria fluff include the Skaven of Clan Pestilens, Dark Elf raiders, & even Norse!  But I am successfully staying focused on the Lizardmen so far...  I am really enjoying the bright palette & fun jungle bases as a change from brooding grimdark Warhammer 40,000 figures & drab moderns for Crossfire.


  1. Both superb, but I do love a Kroxigor.

    1. Thanks, Michael. This Kroxigor is a really nice sculpt - I like all the folds in it's skin, & the detail around the mouth & face.
