Skaven Incursion by CrimsonMagpie Skaven Incursion by CrimsonMagpie
RATS! RATS EVERYWHERE!!! :iconbohobellaplz:

This was intended to be the first in a small series of works for a portfolio tailored to Games Workshop, although it's nowhere near up to standard. I did learn some important lessons whilst doing though. :meow:

I had the to depict a Skaven infiltration into the realm of Naggroth, the home of the dark elves. One usually sees the Skaven fighting their natural foes; humans and lizardmen, so I thought this would be interesting. I tried to create a composition appropriate to rulebook covers and the like.

Information on the Skaven can be found here [link]



Acrylic on paper - 61 by 43cm / 24 by 17"

Very awesome painting! It portrays the Skaven very well. I especially love how you've done the Maulerblades Rat Ogre. :D

Thanks, I do quite like the rat ogre myself; it's probably the only part of the painting I still like! :lol:

Oh man... I need to get my poor Skaven out and repaint them =(
This is wonderful, I can't believe I haven't done a search for Skaven before on here, or Lizardmen for that matter! Still, this is an awesome rendition of the mottley crew, and well executed for a paint-on-paper work... no wrinkles!

At least you have some Skaven. =p And you reminded me I really should do some lizadmen art, seeing as they were my favourite Warhammer race for a long time. . . D: Thanks, I'm quite well practised at stretching paper now. c:

Urg, slow replies are slow.
Teehee, I have some Lizardmen too ^^; I never did play the game, I just liked painting odd animals, I guess! So expensive ._. Drawing them is much cheaper and looks just as awesome! I'll be checking back to see more Warhammery stuffs :3 Oh, hows about Beastmen? *browses away to look at new models*
