That’s right. I may not have been posting regularly, but that does not mean I have been slacking…too much.
In the last few days I’ve completed some work on my Skaven that I am happy with.
First up, Poisoned Wind Mortar/Poisoned Wind Globadiers…
What I’m hoping to do is collect a few more of the Island of Blood PWMs and, like this, separate the figures and turn them into two PWGs. Yes, if I do this I’m going to have some very similar-looking models other than their clothing colour. I’ll try to change colours as much as I can, but I think that if I can get a few more of these for relatively cheap, I won’t have to pay the $10 for ONE GW Globadier. Heck, if I have to pay $10 for a PWM team, that’s TWO for the price of ONE. Maybe I will get one GW Globadier to act as a Bombardier…but probably not, if I can help it. Will have to look into more ways of converting the team to be unique.
Sorry for the cruddy photo. After I’ve painted more rats I’ll set up my ‘photo booth’ and take some better photos of it all.
I’m happy with the way these guys turned out. You’ll see better with better photos, but I think the colours, poisoned wind globes, and the shading-by-wash all came out great.
Next up are some Plague Censer Bearers…
Again, crappy photo, but you get the gist. These are Plague Monks converted into Plague Censer Bearers…really just by fiddling a bit with the flails that the PMs come with. I did a little bit of snipping and gluing here and there, which hopefully will be less noticeable once they are painted. As you can see, one guy is missing an arm and a flail. I need to pick up another set of Plague Monks (I want more anyway), and I’ll have four more flails. And a bunch more Giant Rats. Well, small rats, but they’ll be Giant rats. That’s another project I’ll need to work on.
