    Skaven Warplightning Cannon and Chieftain - First Paint Job

    Hey guys,

    Here is my first Skaven paint job of the new-ish Warplightning Cannon they released January, as well as a Chieftain for my army, which was actually my first ever painted miniature. Tell me what you think.
    I find it easier to paint war machines for some reason.

    Probably easier to paint warmachines because they're bigger

    The cannon looks pretty good, though - the warpstone, the corroded metal, all very nice.

    The pic of the Skaven Warlord doesn't seem the best, but from what I can see he still looks pretty good.

    Haha yeah

    Thanks umm yeah the Warlord I had to use my old camera, hence the weird lighting and poorer quality. I've told myself I have to paint 50 Clanrats before my next character :-\ after that only 200 more Skaven to go

    I am hoping to improve with my Skaven painting. Maybe later I'll find time to get a pic of my Tyranid Warrior Brood with a Tyranid Prime once I have finally finished them. I was told by my local store to use a technique of multiple thin layers of painting to highlight instead of one thicker layer.

    I suppose you can only get better with experience.

    The lightning cannon looks really nice. Have you thought about applying a wash onto the wood. It would give it a worn down look that happens after years of battle.
    5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????

    Both very true statements! The multiple thin layers can be incredibly annoying sometimes, takes a lot of patience but is definitely worth it in the end.

    I think having to paint 200 Skaven is why I've never started a skaven army - Good luck with them all!

    Yeah I'll give the wash a try. Come to think of it, I'd much prefer a darker, more rotten-looking wood - it would suit the Skaven perfectly

    Yes, very annoying that's why you don't do it with every model. I'm just going to do a simple scheme for my hordes and leave the layering for my characters and any big monsters or machines.

    Haha yes I will need it. I have paused my painting of my Skaven because it is already way out of hand, and I don't want my nids to be in that situation. But I am sure Grey Knights will be a nice break from swarm armies - it's one where I can make every model look great.
