I just about managed to get my Lizardman team done in time for last weekend's Waterbowl, so here's a few snaps of the team, before and after yet another speed painting session! (didn't have time to take pics of them all at green stage)

Absolutely fantastic. One of the most original teams out there and a new favorite of mine. Hats off, man.

WOW!!! That is a great team. the Convertion work is great, and the posing is wonderful. So much flavour in the poses, Skinks and Sauruses. I like the colour scheme over all though a little more colour on the scales or somthing might give the gray some more punch. It sounded like a bit of a rush but overall a very nice team.S.

Was saying it all weekend but I'll put myself on the record here, best team conversions I've seen.

Dynamic posing, coherent theme, it's all there.

Well done.

P.S. And remember, also useful for playing a good old game of Jigsaw.

Fantastic conversion work - the posing is amazingly well done. The first crouching saurus is my favourite, but they're all superb.

Out of interest - the plastic ankle on the running saurus looks like a breakage waiting to happen. Did you put a metal rod through it, or are you just going to be really careful with them?

Love the name of the team, and yes the conversion work is outstanding. How did they get on out of interest?

Where does the human model come from? It is one of Phig's multi-part human team?

Well done mate!
I love both the poses and the convertions!

The colour scheme is very simple but it works very well.
Cheers

Thanks for the nice comments folks!

@ Richy, yeah I'm pretty sure I cut it and pinned it. Couldnt swear to it though. seems to be standing up ok so far...

@ Night dragon - I placed dead middle, with 3 draws on day 1, and 2 wins and a loss to cap it off on day two. Not too bad :)

@ Mephisto - He's a bit of a mongrel. Head from a sentinel pilot with GS helmet, spikes from beastman club. Torso from Empire Soldier, legs from Zombie (for shape, completely GS over the top) Chainsaw from Nobbla. Arms and gloves are GS.

Some of the best conversions in the world of Blood Bowl, no doubt. However the pads made out of GS are all a bit "square", won't you agree? They give a cartoonish feel which kind of clash a bit with the super-realistic, super-dynamic conversion work on the "naked" bits. A few spikes here and there, a few not-so-predictable angles... A bit less 'Mega Man plays Blood Bowl'. Anyhoo, the pads issue could just be an opinion of mine and my overall impression is still, despite this hang-up of mine, absolutely mind-blowing. You should be proud of being the artist behind this team.
