#PitOnParade Skaven 'prodder' progress

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer Skaven prodder for #PitOnParade. Dr Dave is creating a #ArmiesOnParade board for charity. It's some 40k weird fighting pit and I had this Skaven Rat Ogre handler from the Islands of Blood set just knocking around. I was at base-colour stage previously and suddenly I'm here.

Well, it was surprisingly easy to be honest. Some shade wash and my burnt umber art acrylic on the tabard/kilt. The base was a Skavenblight Dinge drybrush, followed by Vallejo Stonewall Grey.

The fur was just shaded and then highlighted with white. Nothing fancy, just make sure it's watered so I can add it in semi-transparent areas and build up to pure white. I also added a little Vallejo Oxide Rust model wash to the base for a little variety in the colours.

Vallejo Pale Flesh for the fleshy bits [obviously], Bloodletter glaze for added pinkness with some strong [or soft, not sure] tone wash added to make it a little darker in the shadows.

Mixed in with my efforts for #DreadTober, this was a nice little distraction from all the striations.


  1. Really liking how this is coming together, looking forward to parade setup.

    1. Dave the Dr is doing and amazing job with the board. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes with that workload. It was the least I could do to paint one mini. Hopefully I'll find a way to approach more like this, (relatively) quick but effective.
