COOL PHOTO! The blue-ish tint makes them look ghostly. Just can't get that Undead Thingy out of your system, eh?!
The Specter Skaven look good; nice positioning, fine sense of motion, &, with the magnetized arms, adaptable. WELL DONE! thumbsup

Now then...SPECTER SKAVEN! RUN! affraid

Thanks Guys.
Nala, The blue tinge was an unwanted effect caused by daylight.

On That Note, here's something new.

Very nice, looking for these diseased infested rodents having a slab of paint on them.

Are those claws custom? I may just be stupid and forgetful, but my brother had some Skaven and I don't recall those bits. If they are, what did you use?

Very nice! These skaven look like they've been sneaking around Mordheim too long and it has taken its toll on them. I recently magnetized my skaven arms as well, and it's a lot of fun.


-heylookitsmatt: they're ghoul arms as described in his first post of the thread

Thanks guys, that's exactly the look I'm going for. Very Happy

Good eye. While I did use ghoul arms, the claws are custom made from undead bits. Basically, I sliced two skeleton warrior swords down the center and glued them to the either side of the ghoul's hand. Then I clipped off bone joints and glued those to either side of the claws.

As usual VERY COOL STUFF! The Fighting Claws are REALLY nice; they escaped the inflatable look of GW's version. The Magnet idea is one that I've considered an EXCEPTIONALLY good one; unfortunately, being pragmatic [read CHEAP & LAZY Suspect ] enough to want to try it, I'm also too poor to afford the Magnets...c'est la vie. The Rat Guys are LOOKIN' GOOD; WELL DONE! thumbsup

Wow, those corpse arms make the Skaven look like they do in the artwork. Great idea, I'm sure you'll see a few copycats!

No one is too cheap or poor to afford magnets DeafNala!!

$5.50-$7 for 100 magnets! I suggest the 1/8" for arms (although tfor those arms i'm sure the 1/16" is needed), see my tutorial:

Okay, I'm about finished assembling the Skaven. Painting begins next week.

In the meantime take a listen to the song for which the warband was named.

Shankhill Butchers

I am sooo bad at time lines for my hobby. I always plan to set time aside for it, but the time just gets gobbled up by something else. I plan to paint them soon, but soon is a broad term. Embarassed :shame:

I know what you mean!

I have such magnificent plans, but there's always something that gets in the way Rolling Eyes
