    Thanks man! I usually use a mixture of both wet blending and layering to achieve the transition effect that I like. Additionally I also used a little glaring to blend everything together

    Hahah great! Glad you liked it man!

    How does this glaring work? How is the effect achieved?

    Hahah sorry for that, it was a typo... I meant to write glazing.

    You basically use a glaze ( very similar to a shade) type paint to give a color tint to the area you want ti cover

    I went through the whole blog and I must admit that this is one of the best I've seen. Your painting skills are really good, Xlanax, both with lizardmen and with skaven (hiss).

    That sounds like Skaven talk. But seeing as @Xlanax_lot 's work is so amazing, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and conclude that the second nice was for emphasis!

    :p

    Xlanax_Lot, you are a TRUE inspiration!

    I JUST bought a Skaven army a few days ago and have been looking up Google images of Skaven armies, trying to decide on a color scheme that really spoke to me. I thought you'd like to know that your Warlock there was one of the first images that popped up on Google images and stood out so much that it was one of the first ones I clicked on to get a better look!

    I have been absolutely drooling over your work! I hope I can get to your level one day! Truly AMAZING!!! :spiderman:

    Wow Thanks man I am flattered by all the nice comments, I really appreciate it and I am glad I am able to provide some sort of help!

    Have you decided on a color scheme yet? I struggled a lot to decide mine

    Well, I have 8 other armies and they are all brightly colored. So I was thinking that I'd go with Black and Brown with mostly Grey / Dark Grey fur. (My Grey Seers with be Grey-White and become whiter the higher their rank, and my Chieftain / Warlords will be Grey-Black, moving toward solid black the higher their rank goes.) I really want them to be an army in the shadows (hence the black), but also dirty (hence the brown).

    The Warpstones and eyes, etc. will be my bright spots of color throughout the army. The hardest part will be the black-on-black transitions. It'll be a challenge, but one that I'm looking forward to!

    I really like the brown on your Plague Priest. I'm thinking my browns will look something like that and mostly be used on the "rag" portions.

    I see a lot of reds and brown fur used on Skaven, so I want to stay away from that. Also, my Dwarves main color scheme is red, so mortal enemies and all that.

    Do you have that kind of equipment or did you go to a place to get it done?

    Either way, it looks great!

    I wish @NIGHTBRINGER I only designed the foam cuts and then when to a small business that has two laser cutters and cuts the foam to how I needed. Later I glued some foamy on the bottom and I was done!
