The Skabrus

I chose some ‘rotten’ colours for the Skabrus, which I thought matched the look a bit better than the brighter colours in White Dwarf.

– The guts and innards were painted in Scorched Brown, then layered with Red Gore and Blood Red. I then washed it down with Baal Red and coated it in Gloss Varnish.

– The Skin areas were painted in Knarloc Green then washed with Devlan Mud.

The Skabrus is animated from the remains of an Orb Leviathan and its last meal of Skaven sailors. It has a superb ranged attack, thanks to warp lightning cannons that ignore the enemy’s armour. It is also difficult to pin down, as the Skaven are masters of running away!
