Just a quick post today, 15 black skaven finished, 5 to go. As much as I dislike the shock elites in 3rd edition, I must say it has been enjoyable painting up halberds.
The front rank looks especially menacing.
I've only managed to get 2 more of them done. I could say I put plastic skaven in here to save lead figs,
They hold washes so nicely, they also gave me the chance to paint red again. Can't lie, I love painting red and have been known to highlight it all the way up to yellow/white lol.
Well, ca c'est fini for today, I'm quite embarrassed at the length of time this unit has taken. For that reason I'm going to continue with the skaven until the end of May, finish a little reward project, and then change gears.
Im not bragging here but I own a ton of unpainted lead;
at least 3000 points of Chaos Regiments,
about 2,000 points in gobbos, orcs and their assorted accoutrements.
I also desperately want to get my eldar pirates (The Void Dragons, Eldritch Raiders sounds terrible!) started and finished, and of course my beloved Alpha Legion, coolest of all known chapters 😀redone.
For all these reasons and more I have to move on. Anyway happy weekend!
