If I'm not mistaken, the legs are taken from a Fantasy kit, right? I've seen Doghouse use those legs before and they add nice amount of height.
You are correct, Wolfy
; those are Chaos Warrior legs. I removed the chestplate and enough of the buckle to stick on a Forgeworld torso and fill in the gap with GS. My puttying skills are still...well, I suck at using putty, so I'm going to put on a pistol/ammo pouch.
.......once I figure out where it went...
Also, thanks on the blue visor; I thought that it'd do nicely, and it makes me glad to hear that I was successful!
Hopefully I'll have a proper stippling brush by the time I finish up my second one, so the rust will be more controlled; even with the small drybrush, I had a helluva time trying to get the Vermin brown and Fiery Orange to go where I wanted it!

Well, I'm in a better mood, so let's see if I can remember:
-Armor: White primer, Rotting Flesh basecoat, Camo Green wash, Drybrush Bleached Bone, Drybrush Skull White (2 coats), Devlan Mud wash
-Trim/Rivets/Rust: Scorched Brown basecoat, stippling/drybrushing of Vermin Brown, stippling/drybrushing of Fiery Orange, then hard-lining in Chainmail in places that would recieve a lot of movement/contact (bolter/blade edges, joints, armor plate corners, etc.)
-Boots: Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown highlight (had to do it twice because mine is VERY watered-down), soles painted black
-Bolter Lens: blood red, blazing orange, fiery orange, golden yellow, skull white, gloss varnish
-Helmet Lens: Enchanted Blue, Ice Blue, Skull White, generous wash of Asuremen Blue, Gloss Varnish
-Backpack Spikes: Dheneb Stone, Devlan Mud, tips drybrushed in Skull White, skull washed in Gryphon Sepia then drybrushed in bleached bone and then skull white.
After all that, the entire model sans the glossed parts received a Devlan Mud wash. Seriously, that stuff is like magic!
I'm glad you two liked it! Hopefully, I can make some more Skaven-y conversions this time around, try and tie them into the theme of the army a bit more-and I don't just mean gluing giant rats on the bases
