The clan is comprised of members from all the major clans, including Moulder, Skryre, Eshin and Pestilence. The clan has found a big warpstone vein that they mine and guard furiously to pay for the major clans services. The black Skaven Bruck is the clan warlord and official leader.

Clanrat starters
Heres my first rank of clanrats that ive painted. i bought these models over two- four years ago. and they still havent got the love they deserve. ive assembled all of them but not painted them all. i tried to use the Rattsu paint scheme and i liked it very. its easy to paint and it doesnt take too long on each figure. i bet they will look great when i have painted and based the whole unit! now ill return to my paintbrush and skaven.

till next update!

The metals in particular look good.

Finished second Row of Clanrats! took little over 1h and 15minutes. (i Clocked it) superfast by my standards. If i continue in this pace i will be done with ALL my skavens that are unpainted before the month is over! they look very gritty, i like it alot.

75mins for 5 figures! it takes me that to paint one to a standard I'm not happy with, by that I mean not as good as yours, clearly your technique has me in awe. Are you doing the 24Hr painting challenge on the 2oth? If so we should try and paint together posting every 20 mins or so, Im certain to learn a lot and by comparing us two people should learn exactly how not to paint horde armies (that would be my technique).
Currently joint first in PRS points, may as well blow my trumpet whilst I've got one.

Im not up to the 24hr thing cuz i dont have a full Regiment, some are missing. though by now its gone twentyfour hours since i made the first post here and ive not painted twenty minis. but 15! thats really fast by my standards. but i miss four Models for my 25 man Regiment, so i had to loot my bits box for more skavens, i have the same models from a privious pack i bought like 8 year ago or so, but most of them are converted beyond recognition. i have no idea where they've gone. hopefully theyre somewhere in my hobby room.

I clocked it today too. ive painted this regiment in 2h 54mins or so.

Posted Image
here are the new five mixed in the unit so it will look more random. they got darker when i mixed the "Skaven Wash" wich consists of Scorched brown and Chaos Black and some water. its kinda coffe coloured.

Posted Image
here are the skavens i managed to loot from my bitz box in the meantime. i will have to look closer for the unpainted and unconverted ones tomorrow or some other day.

Paint-Paint Quick-quick!

i thought id show before and after pics. this is before and after the "Skaven Wash" that consists of a hint of Chaos Black and some Scorched Brown mixed with quite alot of water. they dont look too great up close but in a unit on the table they should look great. and this is before i paint the eyes and teeth or any highlights whatsoever.

Welcome to the Washing World Nordic, it is fun. Drybrushing is just highlighting but faster, remember that. ;)

Looks like a nice start to the army. When you paint your sculpts you should post them in this thread as well, BTW, they're looking really good.

Yes I am very impressed by this washing of which you all speak and the speed at which this unit has almost been completed, although worried by this strange idea of putting the command at the front of a unit, what's to stop the troops running away?

The command unit is always at the front Science, since the Champion is not a hero and therefore does not lead from the back. ;)

a few hours later since the last pic and im closing on to completion. i think i will remove the lower part of the front chassis as it looks unbalanced as it is now.

its made of two Tomb Kings of Khemri chariots. plastic wheels. and old space marine Bike. the top of a superglue Lid. skeleton shields. a clanrat, something from an old airplane model and a dark eldar jetbike. theres also a tiny piece from a motorcycle model thats a few years old and a spare Jezzail shield that ive bent. im not very happy with the green stuff arms but they will do for now.

hope you like it. =)
