    My first try at nmm - old school Skaven

    Hi Guys,

    Here's something I've been working on over the last couple of weeks and it's also my first ever attempt at nmm (on the standard bearer only). As normal comments are appreciated.

    Skaven Plague Monk Command from 1994 -

    I think the NMM is very nice, great smooth transitions. My only hangup is that it looks too clean for a Skaven blade. I would like to see some dirt, grime and rust, even some dried blood.

    What he said.

    For a first try it's damned good but a plague monk probably wasn't the best mini to try and do a blade that clean with.

    I really love the lighting effect you've gone for - very graphic novel-esque with hyper contrast.
    I would consider keeping that high contrast look across the model as a whole.
    PS.I also like the way you've been painting the wood.

    very good nmm and the rest ain't bad, either. Just one thing, it ain't old skool enough, show me a 1980s plague monk.
    The eyes!, the EYES!!

    Thanks for the comments - as always you all make some great points. I was really trying out the technique rather than being too worried about whether the model holds together as a dirty skaven - that's my line and I'm sticking to it ;-) Oh, that and I've no idea how to do dirty NMM.

    I was pretty pleased how the wood and noses came out too.
