Skaven Warband (Oldhammer style)
« on: June 12, 2014, 09:22:16 AM »
I recently finished this little painting commission. Some great old models and in my opinion the best Skaven sculpts Citadel have put out to date. The giant rats are from a later era and one ratman is apparently from a different manufacturer. Basing was modelled by the client. Great fun to paint. This time I didn't 'cheat' when it came to doing the shield designs so that's all freehand, which isn't saying much considering it's one of the simplest designs I could have picked.  lol



There are more pics (and bigger images) over on my blog.

Beautiful work! I had all of these back when I was a teenager, but they never looked that good... :-*

 :) Another wonderful batch of painted minis from Stone-Cold-Lead. I found a stash of these guys hiding in a get-around-to-it box recently. I didn't want to stop what I was working on so I set them aside. Now I have an urge to dig them out again. That dragon is never gonna get done.

The Old Rat Guys are WONDERFULLY painted & BEAUTIFULLY based. They are sure to make your patron happy...ecstatic would be more likely. VERY WELL DONE!

Great work. 

A few years ago I got lucky at a convention flea market.  A guy was selling a brownie pan full of painted 3rd edition Skaven for $60.  There were easily 60 models including four of the old rat ogres.  $60 was an awesome deal for those figs but I couldnt resist a bit of haggling and I talked him down to $50. :)

Damn fine work. The shields are fantastic.

I'm even impressed by the goat!!! Subtle fur and the eye is perfect.
