Skaven NAF GT painting Blog
After a short break over Christmas I have been focusing the vast majority of my painting time on the skaven. The undead are on the backburner for now as the slann zombie I ordered still hadn’t arrived after 2 months. So I cancelled that order and used a different company. Once he shows up I will build the last 2 zombies and complete the team, hopefully before I move.

As I really like the new GW skaven team I decided to paint up the 6 unique sculpts as they were. The other 10 players would all be conversions meaning the team would consist of 16 unique players. The NAF have informed me that this team will no longer go to the overall winner automatically, it will now be a raffle open to all attendees. I believe the higher you are in the final rankings the better your chances of winning, but will leave the details to them.


He was painted in the same way as the linemen, though he had a lot more skin and fur on show compared to them. The biggest difference was painting the warpstone on the football he was holding with his tail. I started with a very dark green and added sharp highlights to all the edges on it, a green wash helped it to glow.


One difficulty I had with him is that he wears no armour, which meant there would be a distinct lack of orange on him. As that is the main team colour I decided to paint the lining of his cloak orange. There were very few folds in this cloak and it was difficult to shade and highlight without it looking like stripes. I ended up going for a dirty orange using washes and glazes. Am not entirely happy with it this is usually one of the surfaces I paint best.


The blitzer wears a bit more armour than the linemen, though personally I don’t think they look different enough for being the only AV8 normal sized player on the team. I wanted him to stand out a bit more so added a couple more white borders to certain armour pieces. He also got black fur rather than brown on the linemen, but this would not be that obvious.


This model was converted from the standard gutter model. I swapped his arms with those of stormvermin and with a head from a plague monk. His tail was also swapped with another model. I painted him in the same way as the other gutter.


The 2nd thrower was converted from a Warhammer Quest Skaven Deathrunner with arm and head taken from stormvermin and hand from the spare thrower. I added a football to his base as well. I wanted him to be the veteran and unofficial team captain of the team so gave him white fur, along with his eye patch this marks him as a veteran.


With 8 players done the team is halfway completed, I am well on schedule but may struggle to add some of the extras have done in previous years. I have added a poll to the TFF Thread about what I should focus on after the 16 main players are done.

Amazing job as always. They look really dynamic unlike most GW models.

Must say I don't love the color palette though...
