|Andy Chambers' Skaven Army....Everybody's favorite Skaven army!|
One thing. I decided that the green base edges I used for my other Skaven models don't look really right. Too bright and cheerful. Mr. Chambers' bases have a lot of gray on them too and now I can see why he did 'em that way. I tried using Reaper Stormy Grey on this unit, and I think it is a better with the sort of autumnal grays, browns and yellow/oranges I like to paint my Skaven troops in.

Clothing can be seen to have little designs and markings around the hems, hoods are often emblazoned with menacing runes. Fur is sometimes dyed or marked with dramatic slashes and stripes. Swords and spear-blades are sometimes given hash-marks which we can assume are 'kill' markings, and spears and halberds sometimes have small pennons attached. I'd like to add little bits of flavor like this to my elite and Clan Rat regiments.
Til next time, cheers!
