I finally got started on my Mordheim gangs. As I received a couple of Skaven in a trade already painted I thought I would start with them. Nothing too fancy; old plastic Clanrats as well as the versatile newer sculpts (none of the "official" Mordheim sculpts). Three identical old skool clanrats:


A WIP shot of my Assassin and a Night Runner; I added a cape to Clanrat model and had to manufacture a new tale for the night runner:


A WIP shot another night runner and a black skaven with flail:

Those four plastic guys at the end look like the classic 'official' Mordheim sculpts to me. (They are the same minis that came with the old Mordheim box set) thumbsup

The tails are always breaking off.

Oh that's neat. I got them second hand in trades and I am not familiar with the Skaven range; I just assumed they came from the current sprues. The 3 finished Skaven at the top are HUGE compared to them.

Maybe the black skaven are worth some conversion work or a metal model for the sake of differentiating them from the henchmen

Also, is true that the tails are a headbreaker

Well... they will be painted black... Very Happy .. but I will have to do something to differentiate them from the others. I am thinking that I might have to see if I can pick up a couple of Stormvermin sprues and combine bits with the clan rats or night runner sprues to get a suitable distinctive model for the Black Skaven.

I finished up a few models.... both night runners with slings:

The Assassin:

and a black skaven with flail:

I bought a skaven sorcerer cheap online, gave his base some grey stuff flagstones and now he is ready for priming:

That's a nice, clean paintjob on the Skaven. And the Dwarfs look like they are fun to paint up, good luck with these! cheers

The last of the Rat Guys painted up SPLENDIDLY...I love the rat clinging to the staff. All you need now is a Group Photo. VERY NICELY DONE! thumbsup

That is a GOOD LOOKING Gang of Vertically Challenged Ones. Have FUN with the painting.

Yes, I quite like the Dwarves- I like the renaissance look. The Warmonger line is their "Swashbuckling Dwarves"  Very Happy; they also have a Norse Dwarf range.

nice work, mate.

I like how the skaven are painted in light colours and still "feel" right because of the colour choice. And the short ones go a very different way and look great as well! Smile
