Skaven Screaming Bell

The bell wreaks havoc across the battlefield, leaving only death in it’s wake. Destruction knows no allies.

This is possibly one of my favorite models which I’ve painted. I took the better part of a year painting it, not working the whole time of course, only doing bits and pieces through out that time. The painting techniques I used to paint this model were fairly basic. I base coated, inked, then dry brushed for most of the pieces. I used citadel paints for the vast majority of the model, I used Gold Leaf from the Tamiya paint line for the brazier and the various censers around the bell’s structure. The base is made with cork board. I glued three layers together in the design I wanted, then Charles used his ban saw to cut it at an angle. This gives the model a ‘topsy-turvy’ feeling which I think highlights how little the Skaven care for their own safety.

I’m a huge fan of the Skaven faction and this model felt like a cap stone to my army. It feels so on theme for any list I make. Having it hurt as much, or more, than it helps is always a hilarious interaction. This was one of the last models I purchased for my army and I am very happy with how it turned out.
