Welcome to Librarium Online!
Boy, did I make a mistake when I bought my first box of clanrats.....
Since then my dream army has been a mass of chittering ratmen. Unfourtuantly I've never gotten around to painting them. Now is the time! I currently have (Off the top of my head) 170+ Ratmen fully built, and a couple of boxes laying around.
I'm making this diary to keep me motivated, I'll try and update it every couple of days, hopefully with pics as much as possible.
I've just primed a whole bunch o' stuff which included- Grey Seer, Warplock Engineer, Assasain, 2 Rat Ogre Packs, 10 Gutter Runners and 20 Plauge monks.
Wish me luck!
To give you an Idea of the amount of work,
About 3/4 of the stuff I have (I'm actually getting more on the weekend!)
You're doing all the fun stuff first. If you start with a couple of units of clan rats first, then go on to other stuff, you're more likely to finish.
Actually I primed this stuff up in particular because I only had a small amount of primer, so I choose single models and smaller units. In other news, I've done a bit of work on 2 packmasters and 10 Plaugemonks. I'll be basing some of my clanrats tonight, so they will get primed soon as well.
get a 1/4 inch brush i use this for base work all the time and so long as you don't load it up with paint the basecoat comes out perfectly.
a couple of minuets on each model and the basecoat is done you should have done the entire lot within a week.
as for the highlighting just drybrush a lighter shade of brown over the fur.
the detailing will have to be done a unit at a time though.
the only models within your normal units that you should be spending any great time on is your command group. pay particular attention to the standard bearer though, as this is the first model in a unit that catches your eye.
