Well another two months (just over actually) and another team is finished. I now have a fully painted Skaven team consisting of twenty-one players (six less than the orcs) and eight coaching staff (eight more than the orcs ... unless you count 'Tony').
I decided to paint this team in a totally different way to my previous one. This time, I saw a beautiful Skaven team on Facebook, painted in black and yellow. I decided to copy it and, even though my results aren't quite as good as the team I saw on Facebook, I am still happy with them.
My team was painted using the below technique:
Base Coat: Dwarf flesh was used for the flesh. Black was used for most of the fabric and metal parts. A mid-range yellow was used on the armour and a mid-range brown was used on any pouches, belts etc.
Washes: The entire model was washed in Agrax Earthshade (I love this paint).
Highlights: Dwarf flesh followed by elf flesh was used to highlight the flesh. I picked out the edges of the black fabric with a very dark blue, followed by a mid-range blue. A mid-range yellow - followed by a light-range yellow - was used on the armour. A mid-range brown followed by a lighter brown was used on any pouches, belts etc. A dark-silver was applied to all of the black metal parts. The eyes were painted in a dark-red. The teeth and claws were painted in a bone colour.
Washes: Seraphim Sepia was used to give the metal parts a rusty look.
Highlights: The metal was highlighted with a dark-metal before smaller parts were highlighted with a lighter metal.
Below are some photos of my new team:

If you are wondering why there arn't any names that is because I haven't thought of any yet (not even my team name). If you have any topical - yet comical - names please let me know. One rat will be called Bob!
Next ... Dwarfs!
