They’re a perfect way to kickstart a project, leading on to hopefully many more gnawing, long fanged fanatical vermin during the rest of your Challenge entries. And I really like the way that you’ve covered the base of the team, and then gone on to add more, and more – a true gamer, bringing along the ‘kitchen sink’ (or ‘circular spinning wheel’, as older Skaven grandmothers would say) to the game.
I have to say, I can’t see the problem on the casting that you’ve mentioned. If the mould lines are there, I think they’re more than masked by your super brushwork. I do, however, share your pain on the AK Interactive Still Water. That stuff can be very tricky to work with. Have you tried ‘Solid Water’, which is a two part resin? It’s a little fiddly to mix, but it applies quite well, and you only need one coat. Worth a look for at some point, maybe.
And thanks for the heads up on the Warcolours paints. That’s news to me, but if your fantastic Rat Ogre is anything to go by, I can guess we’ll all be getting some soon!
This most excellent work will gain you a Skaven-skittering 95 points to scamper you up the Challenge ladder. Tremendous work, Samuli, and we can’t wait for more.
