So, i'm about to start collecting Skaven (I'm heading down to GW to pick up a box of clanrats tomorrow, yay!)
Anyway, problem is i'm not sure how to get a nice effect for the fur, and i'm hoping someone here will know a great, easy way of doing it to make it look good. I'm looking for it to be fairly dark.
Cheers in advance!
Easy as that? Sweet!
Gonna keep checking back, see what other people come up with
Capn, that technigue is one of two that are viable, the other would be to undercoat black and first drybrush heavy with brown, a little lighter with a mixture of50% brown and 50% graveyardearth and then a light drybrush with graveyard earth. You can ofcourse use other shades of brown to suit your taste.
one suggestion with skaven is dont buy to much at once. it turns into a painting nightmare having 90 little rat men to paint sitting in front of you......maybe ill have a skaven army one day....
oh painting tips hmmm i do mine scorched brown base, med drybrush bestial brown, light drybrush of snakebite leather.

anyway, painting tips.
probably do a drybrush build up in your choice of colours, browns for brown rats etc. then hit them with a inking or a wash. maybe both. its up to you. besides, whos to say all your rats have to be the same colour/breed/gender/painting style. they may be rats, but they still have individuality.

The alternate way is to paint them in the highest highlight colour (say codex-grey + black for Stormvermin skaven), and then give them progressivley thinner washes of shading, culminating with an almost transpoarent shading of brown. Then drybrush with the final highlight, really lightly.
his is less "brush destroting" and gives a smoother transition, but not always....
