I've always thought the Skaven Warlock Engineers to be rather dull in the pose department so I'm starting work on a model based on the front cover of the Skaven army book.
body- storm vermin
right hand- clanrat spear with warlock blades replacing spear head and the shaft extended using banner poles and green stuff
left hand- dwarf pistol trimmed down
backpack- warlock engineer backpack
May also do the base using a spare dwarf cannon and all those little plastic rats off the clanrat sprues.
Progress may be a little slow as I'm also doing uni work at the moment, which seems to involve a lot of painting dwarfs.
Sounds like you're on the right track in terms of the bits department. I would recommend a little green stuff work as well, not just to smooth the transitions between the various parts but also to build a gas mask to go over his mouth. Also, don't forget the goggles and the skullcap; it gives him a very mad scientist-esque look. With the amount of green stuff work you could do to his head, it won't really matter which one you use, as long as it's skaven-shaped, surely?
Well, if you check the front of the skaven book (the concept for this little project) theres only a warpstone replacement eye-piece to work on. I wanted to keep the head pretty free of additions so the open mouthed squeek dominates.
Looking forward to doing some green stuff work, other than filling in gaps, anyone got any good websites/tuts to be going at?
