Neglected models: ratskin with autogun

May is over, but the run through old models continues with a second ratskin, this one with an autogun rather than a shotgun. This isn’t a model I ever used in a gang, which is why the before models shows a clean specimen:


Autoguns are ten a penny in Necromunda, but after an undercoat and about 70 minutes painting here is the result:


I’m not sure about those rat pelts. For some reason painting Bones rats was far simpler than a pelt on a ratskin! I thought I was using a fairly muted colour scheme, but when I gathered the paints together it looked like this:


That is a very old tub of Vermin Fur from Games Workshop behind the pot of Averland Sunset. It’s still a fine consistency, and formed the base colour of the rat pelt this time around.

    Ha, I’ve had the same experience with some of my Nurgle models: it seems a fairly muted, simple scheme but by the time I’m done mucking about I’ve used half the paints in my collection! You are building up a nice collection of people in ratskins, I must say. 🙂

    I like it! Nice rust effect on that terrain in the background too. Did you use Ironbreaker as a base on the gun? I don’t have that paint, curious how it compares to Citadel’s Leadbelcher? As I slowly build up my totally non-obsessive collection of Citadel paints….

      My approach to the gun was: a mix of black and ironbreaker then just ironbreaker; then ironbreaker and mithril silver, then light touches of just mithril
