This guy should be pretty much done (apart from tidying up some mistakes maybe), however I’m not happy about how the blood on the blade turned out. I’m going to look for some blood tutorials and probably repaint it.

Muskie, thanks for your feedback and the tutorial. However I think working with Clear Red doesn't suit me painting style, I think my blood effect should be more graphic.
Actually the severed heads are of a very different colour than the Skaven skin, you just can't see it on the quick snapshot above. I aimed for a more healthy and human paintjob on the heads as a contrast because of the very pale skin of my Skaven. I also think that these heads are freshly chopped off in the midst of battle so I don't want them to be too much zombie like.
I relly like your painting style and love your skaven so far (I am also Skaven collector).
I have question. How do you achive this nice looking rusted armour effect? Please share your knowledge. Thanks.
Hi Dario, check out this tutorial for my basic techniques of painting Skaven: http://stahlyspaintstation.blogspot.com/2010/09/tutorial-how-to-paint-skaven-clanrats.html
I used thinned Vermin Brown and Macharius Solar Orange that I applied in the recesses.
Thank you very much.
Wow! I think it looks great, especially the rusted, hacked up armour!

The blood looks a bit purple and the skull on his shoulder could use a few more highlights IMHO but other than that he looks great. In fact i'm setting up a few mousetraps just in case!

The blood looks a little too purple. Also the skin color of your severed heads looks too healthy and too close to the skin color of the warlord. Other than that good job. A thin wash, very thin, of purple or green, or even blue will discolor the heads more. Make them look less healthy. Wet blood is easy to do if you can find Tamiya Clear Red.
