    Agreed! Looks really nice!... for a shaven thing... ;)
    Also nice basing. Maybe I would have tried to make the grass look a bit burned close to the machine... like destroyed by the radiation something... but that's unimportant considering how great the painting is...:cool:;)

    Skaven is that not a bad choice for such a slow painter, it's going to take you years to paint a horde of clanrats and we can't wait that long between posts!

    I love Skaven (shoot me now) I think the cannon looks great but a bit too new for skaven are you going to add rust etc?

    And when are you finishing that bloody Carnosaur?

    Thanks @Seraphage ! Sure,

    Wood: This was my first try at using my airbrush, i started priming everithibg with a neutral brown, after that I did some drybrushing to all the pieces with a lighter brown, that I washed the whole thing with seraphin sepia and let it dry... Finally I used green ann nuln oil washes in random places to make it look some what older

    Metal: I used a mixture of silver and black to get a very dark metal collor, than I washed it with nuln oil and finally i did some highlights and scratches with pure silver

    Thanks man! That is actually a very good idea I will see if I can do something like that in the next model

    Hahahaha @Crowsfoot you are on spot there man! Painting 1000 clanrats or stoemvermin is probably not the best choise for me.... That is why I am going only for the most elite troups ( stormfiends, verminlords, jezzails, and weapon teams) if I do that the model coun is surprisingly low for skaven

    Don't worry I had been out of the forum for a while, but I have some more miniatures to show you guy, I will post some more pictures this week

    I am wrll aware of your frustration for the carnosaur! So I eill make you a promise! i am currently finishing the bastiladon ( wich has been a pain in the but) but once I am done witj it I will get to work on the carnosaur without fault!

    This is a plague priest that came as a bonus on an island of blood set i bought on ebay.
    To the left is how it was when I first got it, and to the right is after I painted it.

    It's good to have you back @Xlanax_lot . Your painted models are always a joy to look at. Your work on the warpstone is especially great, the greens are so vibrant. I don't know how you're able to pull of such extreme and beautiful contrasts while keeping the transitions so natural and smooth.

    Glad to be back man, I had been playing more than anything else lately but I missed the painting part and the community here. If you are talking about the warplane cheap fluorescent acrylic green and yellow paints where the key to achieve the contrast, after I had that I just used a green wash only at the crevices to give it that extra contrast

    Thanks! glad you approve of this filthy rat

    Really extraordinary!:wideyed:
    Were you the one achieving wet blending effects by layering? Must take millions of layers and hours to paint this way and achieve such results... I couldn't make out layers except on the horns on the standard on his back... and that only by zooming in the picture like mad... ;):p:cool:

    Skaven are amazing, your method of painting warpstone is so bright and glowy, really cements the magic glowing stone feel. Also your woodgrain on the cannon is incredible
