Well, after being VERY lazy about it all, i've finally got a combat-legal Skaven force. They're painted, based, and ready to die. And here they are!
Excuse the blurriness, and the bad painting (First time i've picked up a brush since I was 11).
The plan is to add 20 slaves, and 5 Plague Censer Bearers to the army next, to bring it up to 500pts.
I am SO proud right now

I'm always in favor of someone painting a Skaven army (just not me, the thought is dizzying). Good for you for starting this, have some rep, and keep us posted!
Nice work, Ceej. Nice, clean lines and strong colours. An idea to make them feel more in depth would be perhaps to add some subtle layered shading? Especially on the cloth, it helps to give it a more natural feel. Otherwise, awesome job. Going well. Keep it up!
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.
Impressive. It's a great start for Skaven. Personally I would've used darker colours; it fits their background more but that's just me, so take you time getting the hang of painting.
Here's a tip for if you're going to do any shading painting-wise:
Start with dark colours first, then add slightly lighter colours to areas that will be more visible in broad daylight (folds in clothing tend to have shading in them). Drybrushing on the fur helps with whatever colour you use, since it can be done quickly and paints the more raised areas of the models.
Other than that, do keep it up. Looking good.
That looks like an excellent start, kudos for actually painting. I like the colors on the Engineer, it really helps him stick out.

First up is my Plague Lord, which I finished last night:
Rat Ogre - Oddly enough, there are no rules to give them ranged weapons..
Other Rat Ogre, not sure why the picture is so much bigger...
And finally, a nearly-whole army shot. The Plague Lord isn't in it, though. EDIT: Yes he is, behind the Rat Ogres, pre-repaint.
That's the lot, folks. Expect more soon though.
