Today I start showing the models I finished this month(!) with one of the off-brand Skaven I kinda previewed during my review of the AK Interactive Spray Primers recently. Sculpted by Tim Prow many years ago for Heartbreaker, the model is still available today from RPE (Ral Partha Europe – who confusingly, apparently have no current connection to Ral Partha). I’m also counting this one towards Mechanismo March as the Mechanical Arm/Not-Powerfist is a pretty integral part of the model.
I was a little stuck originally about the colours to use on his clothing, as I really haven’t come up with an “army colour” for my Skaven (let’s face it – it’ll probably overall be a melange of earthy, muddy greens and browns) but I did want to use a more interesting colour on this guy – and what better to use than yellow as a nod to Wudugast, who has been chipping away at his yellow-themed Skaven army for the last couple of years and sharing them on his blog. which helped serve as an inspiration to me actually managing to finish my Plague Censer Bearers recently, and now, along with Alex’s AoS challenge this one and his fellows (one still very WIP).
