Disciple_of_Ezekiel Awesome! Meldon, these rats look super buddy! Those Night Goblins def dont look very tricksy, but their colors really pop! Well done my friend, well done.

You are due for some Rep I would say.

Meldon Well, itīs been a while since I posted any pictures but I havenīt really been slacking of lately, First of is the Warlock that I entered in this months painting challange.

Iīm pleased with how he turned out, and it was actually alot mor going on in that model then I first thought, All in all a fun model to paint

And I have also started on a unit of slaves, not the normal slaves you see in a Skaven army though, I used Night Goblins instead of rats. I donīt really like the idea of using other rats as slaves so my clan just uses captured gobbos as slaves instead. and in gives me something else to paint rather then skavens

I love theses dudes, they go fast to paint and the turn out really fine, the shields iīm specialy pleased with, the brown could use a little extra something though, just not sure what..

And lastly I thought I should show you my giant rats, since you get a ton of these in alot of the skaven boxes I see a lot of these in my future horde I also tried putting a bit of dead grass on the bases to break up the Black/White a bit, please let me know If this is something I should continue with, I canīt really decide...

There, thatīs all. It became a bit of a pic heavy post but see that as me making up for not shoving you anything for a long time

C&C are as always welcome

I like the yellow to, I think it comes out great and makes the army really visible on the tabletop. especialy compared to my old one (brown rats with brown and grey clothes )

Yeah, the whole army is going to have that black/snow bassing. I have also begun to experiment with adding a bit of burnt grass to the basses, I think the bases can benefit from a bit of colour other then black and white.

Meldon I have some new pic for you today, just a "bit" later then I said I would post them

I just wanna show what Iīve been working on lately as I think Iīve been far from lazy, itīs not all of the models Iīve done though, just a few of them

First of we have my new warlord. I think he came out quite ok. I have not yet tested to use devlan mud on any model to make them look a bit dirtier so he may still be subject to change

Next up I have some Stormvermin, this have been my main project for the last month and I have some 9 finished and 3 more just need last details.

And at last I have 2 new pics of my clanrats, I think these pictures came out better atleast

shaantitus As for a more gritty look to the flesh areas try a wash of devlan mud. I think it would have the effect you desire. Try it on a test model and see how it goes.
Otherwise these are really well done. I like them a lot. Have some rep.

Thanks all of you for the kind remarks. I have been looking at the skin areas myself a bit and I also thought they looked a bit flat. Itīs only tallarn flesh washed with ogryn flesh and then rehighligtend with tallarn flesh again. Iīm not really sure that colour I should use on them to get a more "gritty" and less "cartoony" feel to them though. I kinda try to keep away from mixing colours mostly becouse itīs such a huge numbers of models I have to paint for this army, so if you have any good ideas of what colour I could use right out of the pot I would be really happy to know

And on a side note, Iīm gona stop promising to show pictures the next day, Iīm way to bad at delivering to that promise
