Hello there again!

During winter holidays I had some time to paint agian, this time even for myself...

so here goes my STank. During dozen or so years I play and collect warhammer, this was the first time I have got one and painted it. And I have to say - it was not easy, It was long and sometimes even little annoying. Im gonna stick to "normal" humanoid minis...

but I still think it looks somehow nice...



Secondly - wizzard (kinda reminds me those from the Discworld) for my friend...

yes I agree with GamesPoet, the tank and wizard are very nice.  I encourage you to obtain a plastic tank kit and build it.  The one you did was the old all  metal kits, which undoubtedly was one of the worst things to put together that GW ever made,  however you did an excellent job.  steveb

Enjoying the rats.  And what's that green liquid dripping from the assassin's weapons, poison?

I guess. Did not even realize it could be blood as well. I also noticed that Grey Seers sphere looks like a watermelon...

Your painting style really sets these apart from most Skaven, great job! Really nice choice of colour and crisp extreme highlighting!

I have to say I can't stop seeing the Grey Seer's  watermelon now that you've mentioned it!

Really nice painting overall.

Often the Skaven are an excuse to paint with dull colours and washes in a haphazard manner. These are different. Good colours and highlights do miracles. Inspiration.

It turned out good for you.   :-D I don't use washes either, although in my case it is because I use enamel paints, and besides, my cartoon style doesn't suit washes. Your figures are inspirational. You approach them as individual pieces of art, whereas I just churn them out, units at a time. I think I might start concentrating on individual figures for a while.

I have checked your work Padre and I have to say something very similar as you. I feel something more than painting, very strong story after every model (thanks to your amazing campain logs btw!). I guess that every painter sooner or later starts to ignore his work or hate it...:D

Enjoying the rats.  And what's that green liquid dripping from the assassin's weapons, poison?

The Assassin's blades secrete a deadly, warpstone-based poison, since the blades themselves are made of this stuff. That's why they're called the "Weeping Blades". ;)

Anyway, I love the rats. Especially the Assassin. I always had a soft spot for Clan Eshin. :happy:

But if they made blades out of warpstone, shouldn't the entire thing not be green and not just metallic? Because isn't warpstone stone? Or is it an alloy?! Questions questions!
It's your own damn fault.

It's solid Chaos. So it can be metal or a stone. Plus I think that Skaven mix iron with warpstone to create these blades.

Even the Lexicanum is unclear on this:
Quote
In its solid, unrefined form, warpstone seems to swallow all light around it, creating a small patch of darkness around it. It also radiates a deadly and corrupting energy; creatures suffering prolonged exposure eventually die or become warped by mutation, although this may not affect the Skaven, as many of them wield weapons and talismans containing unrefined warpstone with no obvious dangerous and corrupting effects (although it may explain their backstabbing and egotistical nature).
It's your own damn fault.

Do you know that feeling, when you truly want to paint, but you simply do not have a single free hour or two? If not, just let me know, Il take you for a tour around my brain...

So again, showing some old stuff. Rest of Warmachine. (Crappy pics, I know and Im sorry)
