2000pts of Skaven

Well I don’t often (maybe ever?) post twice in a day, but I ended up with a few hours of spare time I wasn’t expecting so decided to tackle the last model I needed to paint for this army (for now!).

This is the Warlock Engineer from the Island of Blood starter set. A cool little model (love the blunderbuss with a scope on it!) that was really quite fast to paint. I’d planned on just doing the basecoats tonight, but got carried away.

Once again not much to report on the painting front, he was painted much like my other Skaven, although with a little more care than the rank and file!

Once I’d finished him, I couldn’t resist setting up the whole army together for a photo!

So there you have it, the 2000pts of Skaven I’ve been working on for quite a while now, arrayed in front of my unfinished fortress, with the Dreadfleet mat hanging behind it for a very mystical looking sky! This feels like a nice achievement, as while I’ll definitely paint more Skaven models in the future, my goal at the start of this was to get to the 2000pt mark. It’s also taken me a while to get here, as my first post on the army was back in October last year, so almost a year ago.

I’m not too sure what I’ll be painting next, I have a couple of other projects on the go but I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up using this as an excuse to kick off a new one!

    1. Thanks John! The verdigris itself is done using a single wash of oil paint (Abteilung 502 turquoise lights in this case). I thin it down a fair bit but not too much, it has to be quite liquid to run in cracks etc but still opaque enough to show as a nice blue when it dries. Because itโ€™s oils you can move it around and clean it up easily enough after applying it and it doesnโ€™t leave those tide marks you get from watering down acrylic paints.

  1. Congratulations on finishing your army! And I am known at my house for saying, I’ll sit down and paint for five minutes to my wife and she asks me an hour later, how my five minutes of painting is going so I know what you’re talking about with this mini ๐Ÿ˜€ Fortunately, it came out great! The army is definitely something to be proud of and I’m excited to see what you tackle next! I have a feeling it might surprise us all ๐Ÿ™‚
