Default Clan Venomklaw

Hi all,

Ok so this is something I wish I did with my eldar but never got round to is to start a Project Log, so the Skaven get the honour instead. The clan has many links to Clan Pestilens but use's all the major clan stuff. I apologise in advance for the bad pics for this first showing, however all the pics in future posts should be with a much better camera. The bases will be done eventually but need a super glue brush to do them properly. Hope you enjoy and there should be pics of more clanrats and a weapon team soon.

I like the look of them, my only worry is that it looks like it takes too long for a reasonable speed for skaven models.

If a child asks how Santa lives forever, simply reply he drinks blood.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

I must admit speed is an issue, fortunately my group isn't to worried about how much a army is painted, although ofc it is preferable that it is.

Thanks for the kind words tho, always nice .

OK I painted up the weapon team but decided to post it up now as I'm somewhat impatient. The warpfire thrower from IoB, was a heck of a lot of fun to paint, in particular I'm proud of the billowing smoke as I thought that would be rather hard to do and my first real attempt at any sort of flame/smoke design/detail. Again sorry for the quality, I should be getting better pics of it all today so I'll post them up later.

Plan is to now work on basing these models while keeping a decent rate of clanrats coming.

All and any C&C is welcome (forgot to mention that in the first post)

Digging your nicely muted, earthy colour scheme, sir. Especially on the Warpfire Thrower...

However, it being a Skaven army [and I'm always pleased to see another one!], I'd love to see some rusty metal thrown into the mix somewhere!

Also, what are your plans for the bases?

aquatic_foible- thanks very much, yeah I need to learn how to do some rust effects, I know your a skaven player and I may well have read your guides . Got any tips for rust how to make it look not to much?

As for the bases, i've actually done one now, doing a grey also slate colour with patches of grass, going to pick up some small slate pieces and make some more exaggerated bases on the characters once I move out of IoB.

@Grins1878- thanks very much, I was very worried when I started the first one in terms of colour but devlan mud fixes all

Hi there all,

Ok, so while I know deep deep down I need to get more clanrats done (and I am, promise) I've just finished the engi and would love to get your thoughts. This is the first pic that shows the basing I'll be using (a couple of clanrats have it now). Ill post the clanrats when a reasonable amount are done. So please C&C on the engi.

Also, I find I like to paint something alongside the clanrats to keep me interested. Going to utilise a reward system now however, so once I finish my clanrat target what should I paint next, its up to you now my friends. The options are;

Warlord
Doomwheel
Poison Wind Mortar
Rat Ogres

Please leave a comment with your vote and ill tally them up on Christmas day. Anyway hope you enjoy these, if you have any hints and tips then please I could use all the help I can get.

Don't paint the Doomwheel, in fact don't even include that in your 800 point list. It's terrible and should never be taken ever again.....
