Skaven Update #10

Another end of the week progress report.

I think a couple more nights and all 3 units will done and ready for basing.

Just started doing the washes on the clanrats armor. They also need a bit of highlighting on their skin. Finishing touches to come soon, I hope.

More finishing touches here.

I should point out that during this time I have been painting only 4 minis in this unit. I had replaced 4 skaven with 3 night goblins (for variety) and 1 proper looking skaven slave.

Skaven Update #9

Another update! Still chugging along. It's taking longer than I expected. I wanted to be done- or mostly done any way- with these units by now.

I have to do the armor, shields, and hand weapons. Still needs a wash.

Only got to do a couple of coats of brown on this unit.

This slave unit needs a bit more touch up and finish the goblins.

Still loads more stuff to do. Need to also start working on my general!

An Awesome Surprise

So let me tell you a story about a friend of mine. He and I used to work together. A few years ago he had an idea of making a board game. Off and on, he'd bounce ideas off of me (and a lot of other people too). Early on, he'd ask me to do some art but towards the end he did most of it. He's quite a Paint Shop Pro veteran now. Last year, after many iterations and play-testing he decided to enter it to Hippodice, an annual design competition held in Germany. Fast forward to yesterday morning and I get a call from my friend telling me he actually won first place! Yay!!! On top of that, his game might actually get published! Holy crap!!! Check out his Holy Crap post on his Noblemen blog and check out the links. Congrats again Dwight!

Skaven Update #9

Quick update time. Didn't have much time over the weekend as I'd hoped.

If you didn't notice any changes from last week's pic I drybrushed heavily all the primed minis scorched brown and did a second drybrush of bestial brown on both slave units. I also started basecoating the night goblins. This week I hope to drybrush the clanrat unit with bestial brown as well, and start basecoating the details on the rest of the army.

Skaven Update #8

Ok, I've finally finished priming everything for my army so aside from doing the movement trays it's all painting from here on out.
