Meldons Ratty Horde
 
Ive been thinking on getting a new plogg up for a while now but was to lazy to do anything about it. Well, time to change that! :)

I have started to rebuild my skaven Horde, Skaven was my 2:d army ever and for a long period it was the only thing I played with. But after I changed to 40K and my Ultramarines they have pretty much been forgotten. After last years painting challange I feel that I need a change though, I need to paint something diffrent from black bolters and blue power armour.

Therefore I`m restarting my Skavens. I have tried other armies but always find my self drawn back to the rats.. Strange..

Very well, On to some starter pictures :)
I bought me a box of Plague Monks to start with since I never used them in great numbers before, I plan on getting around 40 of them, so far I have painted 20..

What you see here is parts of the command squad, The rest of the rats looks like them, mostly yellow... :P

I then bought a box of clanrats that Im working on right now and I love the little dudes! Its basiclly 20 diffrent rats (all have uniqe bodies) so I never get the feeling of painting the same mini over and over again as I have gotten with other WFB races..

I dont have any good pictures for them though as all that I took came out way to dark, I will have to see if I can do something about that tomorrow. :)

Sweet! Love the yellow look on the Plague rats mate. I will be following along with interest as I too have a Skaven army growing mold in the basement in a box.

I have taken and uploaded a few new photos (at last) that I think came out way better then the last ones, altough I think I can still improve alot. I even got some help from my girlfirend to fix them up a bit in photoshop, fixing the backgroung and stuff like that :)

First up is a closer look at two plague monks, you could not really see them any good in the last picture.

Thats as far as Ive gotten for now, More clanrats is on the painting line though, so I will try to get a few more pics of them up here.

Please C&C as I wanna know what I can do better :)

Thanks both of you, I was looking for something a bit diffrent from what I have painted before when I choose the colours, And since Ive never painted Yellow before I went for that. Im currently painting the banner for the clan rat unit, I will try to get some pics of it up when its finished :)

The flash took away some of the highlights but that was the only way I could take pics that did not go dark..
More pics will come tomorrow probably when Im done with the clanrats :)

C&C are welcome :)

I like the yellow, but the flesh is just a bit flat. You have some shading in there, maybe deepening that and adding some highlights would sort that out. All in all some solid pieces.

Absolutley wonderful Meldon, I didnt know you had an inner rat...HEHEHEH! The colors are very neautral, yet sorta pop out at ya. Good job buddy, this deserves some Rep from me.

Regards,
DoE
