I have questions on skaven colors as I am getting my isle of blood set tommarow.
1 someone said to me that having white rats would be bad? as they are looked down or revered by skaven kind.
2 would redish furred rats (like kobolds were) be too far out in left field.
I am painting them as my wife is painting the high elves, (she will still tiny detail mine for me she is such a great wife) if both the fur idea's are a bomb i plan to very black and brown fur through the clan, but had the idea of white rats.
Ultimately as with everything in this game, do what you think is right. You might run across some nerdy fanboy with a packet of fluff, ready to throw it in your face, but who takes it that serious?
The Skaven have Grey Seers, who we are told are historically gray or white. You might take heat for that, but just say that their sewers and breeding grounds were full of bleach or some other chemicals.
Personally I think an albino clan would be the bee's knees.

not gonna lie - i wish i'd thought of having white fur for my skaven when i painted them a while back. I find brown is the easiest 'furry' colour to highlight etc. so going with white might present you some problems. Of course - white spray can ftw!
Red skaven are a nice idea... of course... you WILL get some cheesy jokes about khorney cheese... yeah i went there :-P i'm still envious of both ideas tbh, i'll have to keep these in mind when/if i come back to skaven

I would go with a gray or white, then wash it a little darker. Either that, or scale your colors; make your gray seers white, make your other rats gray. I like the idea of an albino clan... I may look into that. I'm going to buy my army today.
white skaven who are not seers become guards of the great big temple place in skavenblight and are very rare.
but thats only fluff and i still think it look really cool.
for the emperor,for the great maw,blood for the blood god,
for the horned rat!!!!!
