'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Skaven Deathrunner


So far in the Silver Tower series I have gone through techniques of using washes over white to achieve an instant cool definition for skin. Here I repeat that process and show you how you can achieve this using a wash to get good looking Caucasian skin tones. Again as before, I show you ways of painting miniatures fast but still looking great. Here is 'How I Paint' the Deathrunners. 

(Please Note: I show ways of painting miniatures in efficient time but maintaining quality, this is How I Paint them, not always how they should be painted, you are free to use and distribute photos and use any techniques I go over freely too)


So as I said, I undercoated with Corax White and then applied Reikland Fleshshade to the skin, this gave an instant effect of nicely blended skin. 

I followed this with a wash of Carraburg Crimson to the tail and the two tattoos on the mini. 

I painted the Cloth in Rakarth Flesh

I then based the ropes and ties in Eshin Grey (had to fit this colour in somewhere)

I shaded all over these two areas with Agrax Earthshade

I base coated all the metallics in Abbadon Black

Following this, I edge highlighted with Stormhost Silver, I also painted the weapons with Leadbelcher.

I washed the Silver with Coliea Greenshade and base coated the Golds with Retributor Gold.

I washed all the gold with Reikland Gloss

All the Black was washed with Nuln Oil Gloss to give it better shine. 


I finally painted and washed the teeth, claws and boils on skin with Screaming Skull and Agrax Earhshade.

Once based in a simple stone scheme, the model was complete! 

I hope you enjoyed this and you find some bits useful for yourselves, if you have a question please use comments below. Thanks!
