Veskisk Spitefur's Vile Rippers [2022-06-5] Slaves, Swarms, Hounds and HPA

Many of you know I have a sizeable and unpainted skaven horde. I vowed to turn it into a painted skaven horde as soon as possible, and with BATG 2022 being so big I decided to paint loads of rats.

This blog will show the progress of my skaven army. It’s going to be heavily updated starting Q2 '22.

The first unit to be finished is a unit of 40 clanrats.

Love this color scheme on rats! Gives them a primary color but they still seem like dirty drab rats.

I really like the basing on these guys. Looks so good. That Warlord on Brood Horror is absolutely brilliant. Amazing job on that.

Finished some giant rats today. I have a mix of large metal, large plastic and small plastic rats. I removed all the molded bases they had since that looked horrible on my bases. The large rats all lokked like this

I might at some point print a few 3rd party rats to add even more variation but for now this is it!
