[8 / 43] 500p Skaven army

A little update on my Skaven army. 8 out of 43 models painted. I am amazed that people play 2000-3000 points worth of Skaven, as there are so many cheap units, and they all take a lot of time to paint:) Then again, it will be an interesting experience playing a horde army:)

Below we have two weapon teams, one warlock engineer (going to play him with the musket, but not the warp energy condenser), one standard bearer, one musician, one clawleader and two clanrats with spears and shields.

What's missing is some static grass here and there (I want to spray purity seal on them first) and some wash on their teeth. On, and 35 more clanrats:) I do have the movement trays painted though, but also missing static grass. Looks like this can be fun!


  1. Nice work so far, Flekkzo! I've always just gone ahead with gluing static grass onto the bases before spraying on the purity seal. Does waiting on the static grass until after everything has been sealed improve the final appearance? Best of luck to you with the rest of your Skaven horde!

  2. @Papa JJ you make a very good point. I'll probably just go ahead and glue some grass on before sealing it. Maybe the sealer actually helps it stick. I was just afraid that it might have gotten odd or sticky if I did it, and I am too time constrained to do tests :) Rather paint :)
