Well after much time and mistakes i have finished my first skaven model...the great screaming bell! I went for a Rusty, Moldy looking and i think it came out pretty good! Only thing is in these pictures i dont have there tails painted pink :p but anyhow feed back would be welcome.

When i first saw the release pictures for this model i thought it would be my worst nightmare to build and paint. This is awesome! I especially love the way you have done the bell with the weathered oxidized look, please could you share how? You went for weathered and you definitely achieved it.

The only thing i would suggest just to really make it pop is too go up another highlight or 2 on the flames i think that would really finish the model off.

Well done have some rep.

:)

wow man, the patina on the bell is killer! Well done, going to rep you for that!! But it's too bad you didn't fill in the joins of the two halves! That little attention to detail would definately take it even further in the realism you tried to accomplish with the bell!

The big bell is great; I would be tempted to make the little bells look more rather than the plain brown they appear at the moment.

I also like the wood and the stone; they have contrast without looking unnatural.

I am less fond of the seer's robes. The highlights appear too abrupt for my taste; it might look better with some blending or a wash to draw it together and add depth.

Very good. The oxidisation on the bell is wonderful and the wood looks quite rotten. I also quite like the Rat Ogre. +reputation

I did the seers robes like that for a reason which will be made clear when i post the rest of my army :p as for the bell its very simple and can be done in these steps.

Base Coat:Vermin Brown
Paint:Dwarf Bronze

Veyr nice piece, and please tell us how you did the bell! I have a massive piece of scenary I want to paint to look oxidised I just haven't got it to work anywhere near as good as that.

I like the brand on the rat ogre, but brighter hightlights on the flames wouldnt go amiss.

Very very nicely done Ang. I am most impressed with the bell and the rust effects across the entire model. Have a bit of rep in appreciation of a job well done.
