Hey everyone, nothing real fancy today I'm afraid, since I'm clearing the desk of many WIPs, I found I had 13 rats based and ready and thought I could clear them pretty rapidly if I put my mind to it.
After all, that's the sort of thing a few drybrushes and some highlights should handle easily right ? Well I was actually right for once ! I just had to blue-tack them by groups on some old paint pots and here I was ready to paint a swarm of wait... 1,2, 3, 4...11, 12 and 13 ! Oh my (rat) god this has got to be a sign right ? I'm taking it as one anyway !
Now while 8 of the rats are from GW's skaven line, I was very happy (actually they were the ones who made me paint the whole lot) to do the 5 bigger giant rats from Hobbyshop which happens to be my friendly local Hobby shop (lucky me).
They're intended for Ranger of Shadow Deep but will do for anything really and were sculpted by the ever talented Alexandre Vallet so go check their webstore for those HERE
Now while I was at it, I thought I'd update the basing on my old rats and space skaven so they look a little better with my more modern models !
That makes an even bigger swarm of giant rats !
I mean WAY BIGGER :
Nothing too fancy here but a fresh base rim and a little pigment on the base top go a long way to tie these with the rest and I have to say I'm still fond of them !
Now with these done, I can safely get back to my "every other post about Blackstone Fortress" routine and see where that leads us !
Happy painting all ;)
