Repulsor turned out awesome, really well done. I think the photos turned out ok.

The TMM on the skaven is amazing, I'd love to hear how you did that. and I wouldn't worry about the flesh tones, I think they turned out perfectly on the tail It's blending it into the fur on the rest of the ratman that will be interesting.

Amazing work on the Repulsor, well done for getting it finished! The photos are great - like lipsapips said above, you can tell that it is extremely well painted.

Also, the Skaven is top notch! In a way, the one that you’re painting above sort of looks like a Greek warrior with bronze armour, in a very good way. (Sure Cosmic, sure... )

Thanks so much guys! OMN, I will do you a recipe this weekend. Cosmic, I totally agree with you! At first I thought it was wrong to paint him that way, but now, im loving idea of skaven legions/cohorts!

Well, an update on skaven tonight.

Couple of new things for me, mostly around trying to bring some textures onto the model. I’m not unhappy with the cloth...

He’s nearly done!

I think he looks great San. Neitral colors for the most part but dynamic all the same.

Thanks Gits. Yeah, was a conscious move to desaturated the cloth and fur. Trying to keep focus on the green and red....we will see if the plan works out

Mostly, on my phone.

Definitely feeling motivated to try some of this on my Veer-Myn for Dreadball with all this ratty goodness. Great stuff.

Thanks so much guys, i really appreciate it.

OMN, as promised this is how i did the TMM on the skaven back. all paints are from the Scale75 "Metal N' Alchemy" set unless marked.

1) base colour "Decayed metal"
2) first highlight in raised area "Old Copper"
3) narrowing highlight in, " Victorian brass"
4) wash with Secret Weapon "Armour Wash"
5) glaze with gryphonne sepia
6) work up highlight with "Victorian Brass"
7) very narrow highlight with Amber Alchemy. try and make sure you get some highlights next to very dark areas, this gives it the metal look
8) final highlights (super narrow) Moonstone alchemy.
9) i made a dark glaze of black and brown, and used this to darken the shadows, to increase contrast with stage 8. got to be very careful with this.

I hope this helps.

Well, i finished my first skaven. i got to say i really really enjoyed painting this guy. such fun models, and while i know AoS is plenty grim, it does feel a little lighter to step away from the despair of the Imperium of Man for a while also, played a few matches today. great fun game, thoguh i got absolutely demolished. my poor ratmen.

tried so many new things with this guy, the big focus being textures (the metal, fur, cloth) and also...a glow effect. sorry they are just phone snaps, i will get the full light set out when they are all done.

Ive started in on skaven #2. This one doesn’t have as much cloth, but more flesh and metal.

Excellent stuff. The little shoulder rats look great, and really nice armour work on both.

Skaven #2 is done! I’m really enjoying these guys, but I am struggling to get good photos.

Anyways, I hope you like him.

Looking good! Do you think it might be because your backdrop is tonally similar?

Guess your only solution is to send everyone a model so we can look at it properly. Get to work!

Ha! Whale I wish I could! Gits, I’m not sure. It’s just an iPhone pic. These are pretty close though...my curtains really are that horrible green!

It’s maybe a smidge darker that in RL, but not too much ?? I mean..it’s rare that I can say all the colours in a pic are spot on right....
