Hey all, today I’m showing Thanquol and Boneripper. The model was a lot of fun to paint, but a real nightmare to put together due to all the pipes on the arms that need to connect to one another. This was one of those models whilst assembling that nearly flew out of the window with rage.
But once assembled its a interesting model, it reminds me a lot of the recent Glottkin model with the rider on the shoulders. I’m quite a big fan of all the End Times models and am really looking forward to what might come next. What do you think?
Hey cheers Richard for the kind words 🙂
You've done a great job base coating, and adding depth to the model with your shades. However, the lack of proper highlighting leaves the model looking a bit un-finished.
It would be nice to see you go back and add a few layered edge highlights, or possibly some glaze highlights to bring back some of the details into focus. At the moment, most of the details get lost in the darkness.
wow your work on the rats really is amazing, some of the best Skaven I have seen in years, and I've been into warhammer since 1990!
Wow!! Thanks Darren. That's a cool compliment!!
Dem skin tones… So realistic. And again, such a gritty, sinister scheme. Couldn't be more appropriate for the subject. I'm going to have to disagree with Tom here: I think your painting style is incredibly refreshing from the Cool Mini or Not style of silky smooth perfection and exaggerated shading/highlighting. That's a great style, but it's not for everybody. I think the (relative) lack of edge highlighting helps kick up the realism.
Hey Thanks Jeff 🙂
Beautiful work. Absolutely breathtaking. Colour scheme, fine and clea paint, amazing contrast, congenially painted metals, extremely captivating atmosphere of bizarre world… A masterpiece indeed. Congrats for great, GREAT work!!!
That'd dread Thanquol himself, stunning job man.
Damn this is the most realistic Thanquol I've seen. Powerful, malevolent as hell. Your style makes almost believed your model was not a plastic one, but a sharp resin kit. This is an absolute marvel

Wow. Some races /armies really suit your painting style (Skaven, chaos) , some maybe less so, not a criticism, a personal view.
I particularly like the dark, dirty, scorched metals, the subtle green glow and reflection (your best yet imo ) and the red spot colour around the rat ogre's maw.
This just showcases what draws me to tale of painters on a daily basis, a bunch of talented people with very different styles turning out great miniatures and sharing them.
