After one week’s worth of painting, I’m both happy and disappointed to say that I am nearly finished one Clanrat unit.
Happy, because I’ve nearly painted 20 individual models in a week!
Sad, because at the rate I was going, I should have actually finished them.
Weapons have been painted seperately.
I apologize for the poor picture. I wanted to take it quickly here at my desk so I could post it. When they are complete I will take some better pictures, promise.
Honestly, they only need another hour or two of work: eyes, wood, teeth, little rats, straps and touch-ups. Then I’m going to dip them.
I’m opting to dip them instead of wash them for this batch of rats. If I like the outcome, I’ll do it again. If not, I’ll give them washes. I’m also going to see how I like how the armour turns out. I’ve seen a couple of different methods of doing armour now, so if this isn’t favourable I’ll try those.
The beauty of it is, I right now have 100 Clanrats to play around with, so I can try lots of different colours and methods. Hopefully by the time I’m finished my next 20 (by the end of next weekend?) I’ll have a good system down, so the next 40 from Island of Blood should be a breeze…or at least breezier…or something along the lines of a Howling Warpgale, if we want to stay in character…
In other news, the Great Horned One (talking like this is so geeky) has smiled upon the Skaven and given them a new opponent: the Lizardmen, fielded by Andrew. With just a little convincing Andrew has picked up Lizardmen, and as soon as his Battalion box and Stegadon arrive we’ll be duking it out. Can’t wait.
