Shadows of Brimstone: Scourge Rats

Shadows of Brimstone: Scourge Rats

Some more Shadows of Brimstone models today after quite awhile away from them. While my main focus on SoB models when I paint them will (try) to be getting the Core Set models painted, so we can actually play the game, I have a few other sets that (mostly) arrived on loose sprues and have been started in some way or another which I will also attempt to get done and dusted – these Scourge Rats had been removed from sprue, clened up, had their integral kidney bases clipped down and then stuck down to 30mm bases with some putty added to a few of them. Oh, and then they got lost at least twice.

So when I found them the other day while looking for something else completely, I decided to just knuckle down and get them done. No fancy paintjobs or special levels of care for these – they’re low-tier trash-mob monopose enemies from a boardgame. I’ll save my time and energy for more important models, so getting them to the point of looking good on a tabletop was all I needed here.

Glued the ones that had p[opped off the bases back down, added a mud texture paste in a couple of layers to all of them, sprayed black, drybrushed the base back up, and then drybrushed the rats in several layers until picking out the tails and other details, some washes and contrast, and done. Table-worthy models that will look good in context without taking too long to get painted. Win!

As a bonus, Chainsaw Girl Berkerly makes her first size-comparison cameo of 2022.
