I hate the models, but the paintjob is very nice indeed. For me, though, a lot of GW's new stuff has taken "over the top" and strapped rockets onto it.

Wow, very nice!

The newest Skaven was/is the only WHFB army I have ever been moved enough by to collect a force of. Considering I have never played, and am not interested in playing, that's quite an achievement! But I loved that the new Skaven are actually small and rat-like for the first time ever, and they pushed me to buy the IoB set (just the Skaven though, not the rest of the box), the new Stormvermin and virtually all the new metal characters. I also don't like plastic models either, but again the new Skaven look spectacular, and are by far the best GW plastics IMO; they have a lot of crisp detail, movement and character, and don't look disproportioned or static. I plan on using them for WHQ and AHQ at some time in the future... Sigh, so many projects!

As for your rat ogres, I'd suggest adding a slight highlight to the green cable on the one with the fist spike; it will help tie the green in to the other Warpstone colours you've used.

I really like the flesh colours though, they look really good!

The Cable was interesting for me because I do usually highlight everything but when I painted this I was like "Im just going for the flat green"  very strange indeed... Just felt like I had to leave it at that. It does have some darker elements to it, only a little, but the camera pic doesnt show it.

Thanks for all the comments Cheesy
