AoS Relic Lizardmen Part 9: Skinks complete

Well it's been a little while since we last saw these guys. Here's a unit of five Relic Lizardmen Skinks plus their commanding Skink Priest, complete at long last. Way more pics below the jump:

In the rainforests of Hysh there are gigantic trees so old they have turned to stone. Their trunks rise out of sight and their branches are as broad and long as the streets of human towns, and carpeted with moss and algae. Along these great branches grow yet more gnarled and green – but still living – trees, as ancient as in any forest in the Mortal Realms. In the humid jungle atmosphere the trees seem to sweat cool water and it seems to be raining even under the apparent shelter of overhead branches. The fossil trees are almost like cliffs in places. In some places, across the deep green walls are streaked slicks of white dung, cropped boughs and deadfall like bird's nests, and there can be heard chittering and hooting that seems to have the intonation of speech.

Last time I posted the Skinks was almost an entire year ago. Without further ado, let's take a good look at them:

Thanks for reading!


  1. Superb!

    Where's the canine/dragon head from?

    I love them all, but the piscine standard bearer and the throat-sacced musician are particularly good.

    1. Thanks JC! Yi Ti's head is a mix of two very old parts: a dragon crest from a Bretonnian Knight's helmet, and a gargoyle from the Mordheim terrain kit. The fish-man's one of my favourites too, he was one of the first ideas I came up with for this project!
