Regiments of Renown RR11 - Karnac's Lizardmen Raiders

Now finished is the 11th Regiment of Renown in the form of Karnac's Lizardmen Raiders.  The only miniature I never managed to get was the champion so I used a C26 Lizardman instead.

Regiments of Renown RRD1 - Bugmans Rangers 2nd Edition

Sorted out lots of my old dwarfs and found the 2nd edition Bugmans boxed set.  I know I would not have the time to strip and repaint so decided to just tarts them up a bit.  I redid the shields , add some washes and changed the bases.  Some photos of before, in progress and finished.

Oldhammer Orcs and Dwarfs

Going through my boxes of stuff to see what I actually have as due to loosing my Job I won't be able to buy new stuff for a while.  I decided to get out all of my Dwarfs and Orcs.  I have hoarded them for two long and haven't painted any since the late 80's early 90's (Apart from an odd orc/goblin war machine around 2002).  I figured its time I got these out and did something with them.  So a big pile of stuff.

Now I either sell a load or all of it which I would probably regret or paint it.  There is lots to paint and some needs stripping.  Now my painting has improved since the 1980s not that much but still enough.  Now I can't bear to strip everything as it will just take too long so I will experiment with washes, updating some colours and changing the bases over to brown (Just don't like the green bases anymore unless they are done extremely well which I don't have the patience to do).

So starting with bugmans

As I painted them originally

Repainted the metal and added a couple of washes.

They do look a lot different in real life rather than this picture
