Some Skaven

I really like this model:

from Harlequin miniatures, cirka year 1999/2000 or so. They made a series of Skaven knock-offs substitutes called Ver’men, during a time when Citadel did not supply many skaven figures. I believe this was a successful line for Harlequin.

The figures are not as good or detailed as their contemporary Citadel miniatures counterparts, but they were at least half the price.

I happen to like many of the figures in this line.

So I found this in the metal graveyard old miniatures storage facility  under the cellar stairs, and recently painted this up for the Skaven army.

Simple base colours and dipped in “strong tone”. The “aprons” were an unecpected bonus…

and the mark on the base shows that one must hold metal figures properly and not with a pair of pliers when dipping and shaking.

Clanrats. Base colors, dip and skake.

The one on the right needs a coat of matt varnish to take the shine off.
