Hey. Just to let you know that I finaly started painting my skavens after more than 2 years unpainted ^^. I also ordered a Rat-Ogre and 2 night runner sprue to complete my warband (I still needed 4 models that I usualy borrow to my friend).

I had to renew my stock of paint though, 4 years in a dark corner of my room definitly didn't helped ...Before they were dusty, some had dried now they're all a complete waste. I bought 4 citadel paint (I couldn't find any Vallejo paint :S): Chaos Black to undercoat; Vermin brown and Scortched Brown for fur; and boltgun metal. Just now that's all I need. I ordered a lot of 15 vallejo paint and just couldnt't wait for them (3 weeks, cheap shipping) so I bought these 4 color at my local game shop to start right now.

All my model are coated in black and I started the fur on 5 of them. I'm a bit disapointed with my painting skills lol. It hasn't came out as well as I wished it would. Fur is definitly harder than skin. I hope it will look better when the whole model will be painted.

I'll post some photos as soon as I can find an acceptable camera.

Hey! I've just recieved my wonderful bottles of Vallejo paint. After a quick test, I must say that I reaaaally like the result on miniatures - the layer seems somewhat tinner than with GW paint. I'll start painting tonight. Yay! Pics coming soon.

Looking forward to seeing the pics!

I am also a recent convert to Vallejo paints - I always resisted trying them as I'd heard they rub off very easily. Now I have tried them I see this is nonsense (with a good varnish they are as tough as any other paint).

I haven't bought many colours yet but I will be over the next few weeks! bounce

After ten attempts or so, I successfully took some pics of my warband with my crappy-dont-even-think-about-choosing-some-settings-yourself camera.

The whole warband


Here are some detailed pics. The paint job sucks and I'll redo it soon but at least you'll see my assembly/conversion job.

My Assassin. It's the fig I'm currently painting, i just started the fur and skin so it's not nearly completed.



My Sorcerer. I made it out of night runner pieces and some orcs bit, I believe. Don't mind the sticky thing (sorry I can't find the word in english. We call this 'gommette' in french) under its feet. I paint my models unattached to their base and stick them back afterward.



One of my black skaven. Now that's some ugly painting! But it's one of my heavilly converted model so I wanted to show it to you all. Among other things, I used a human body, converted a spear into a halberd and used a fighthing claw hand to give a ninja looking pose to the model.

Yea! very nice man! Love it.

For some reason the pics are really small... and when I click on it I just get sent to imageshake.us... Is there a way to get the bigger?

Thanks,

Those bases are nice, what are they made of?

Best thing about vellejo colors is the white primer, it can paint over any color way better than with gw colors.

I really like the dark fur you painted on top of the pistoler's head. Very good idea.

Very nice basing JohnYoung! What is "gommette" exactly? Is it modelling putty? I love the word "gommette" though Very Happy I always call it "pte modeller" which is a lot less funny.

C'est super mignon comme mot je trouve Very Happy "Gommette", la petite boule de gomme... haha.

I also like your conversions a lot (especially the one with the warplock pistol).

You're right, you should probably redo the paintjob if you find a quiet moment (very hard to find for me atm Wink ). Don't forget, take your time for the shading. It will pay off in the end.

Thanks all Smile.

Since I still have base my Rat-Ogre, I'll do a little tutorial with step-by-step pics and post it here. I work a lot right now so it might take one week.

@Tom:
No its not model putty, its a pretty much like gum balloon but more sticky. It's normaly used to stick posters to the wall etc.
