Heartbreaker Were-Rat Champion (Chaz Elliot) (Jewel of July ’19)

Another model from the depths of time that are known as the mid-1990’s today – we have the third of the Not-Skaven Models previewed in my AK Interactive Primer Review post alongside the Tim Prow Pair.

I really like this sculpt, though I did get totally blocked for a couple of months by the difficulty of figuring out a colour scheme for him. Specifically, I could not figure out how to paint his robe. Eventually, I got to a knuckle down point and was still struggling when inspiration came – one night after finishing up with painting and such, I thought to have a look through the Skaven Battletome for AoS, and saw this deep green scheme on some model, and after seeing it, I knew what to do. The next day, his skirt was painted, and a day or two later the model was finally complete! I even snuck a little touch of Wudagast Yellow onto the model.

Here’s the “finished” shot of the three not-Skaven. The counterpoint to the primed shot of the three from my AK Interactive Post. Done!

My next rats will be the pair from Silver Tower. After that, I plan to Bring the Lead Out again!

  1. That really is a great green for the robe, and very nicely spattered and worn as well.

    Even for the times, that’s a pretty clunky “sword”, tho. Looks like it’d be a couple of inches thick!

    • I’lllet you in on a little secret – I have another of this sculpt that I’ll do something with in the future. 😉 Just that plastic weapons being waved around on otherwise-metal models can present a bit of a structural snappy risk, so I haven’t worked out a solution (or design direction)… :/
