Hello Warseer. I've been lurking and commenting around here for a while now, so I thought it was time to start my own log.
Like many of you I'm sure, 8th rekindled my interest in Fantasy. I've been a long term Dark Elf player (and you might see some at a later stage), but when my local club started up an escalation league, I took the plunge into Skaven. I'd been eyeing the miniatures for a while, and the prospect of an all plastic army is fantastic (especially after using Eldar Aspect Warriors in 40k on a regular basis. You might see some of them at some stage as well) So this army will be 100% plastic! The pressure of monthly deadlines will hopefully keep this log alive, and leave me with a fully painted ratty horde. Hooray!
Here's some fluff to get things started:
I'm part way through the first 500 point block, so let's get to the thing you are here for. The pictures. First up, some characters:Chief Rattagantz. Low ranking general of a low ranking clan, bottom of the pile of filth that is Skavenblight. A rat with big ambitions, though. Called upon by the warlocks of Clan Skyre, Rattagantz is sent forth into the world of men. One of their own is missing, the mad* recluse Iklas Quezla. Rattagantz is to find him, and more importantly, find his work. If the rumours about this Enginseer are true however, Rattagantz may just have found his way to the top of the pile. A few of his most trusted** clanrat warriors, a few "gifts" from clan Skyre, and a few favours he was able to negotiate from clan Moulder, and Rattagants is off to find his destiny, or die trying***.
*yes, even by skaven standards
** by skaven standards, anyway
***by dying, he of course means letting his underlings die whilst he runs away
Chieftain Rattagantz. IoB chieftain with new arms, and a lack of back banner.
Warlock Engineer Quezla. Not in my first block, but looking forward to painting him up for my second!
First 500 point block based, tidied and ready for paint.
Some clanrats! My army's main colour will be green, and all miniatures will have at least some green on them. I normally prefer to take my time with each figure, but with so many to paint i'm sticking to a quick "base coat>wash" for my troops. Characters and fancier units will (hopefully) look a lot cooler.
After burning out a little on clanrats, I took a break and tried something bigger. Still a WIP, but quite close to being done.
Well, hope this works as a good opening post! I'll be off on holiday for the next couple of weeks, but expect some serious progress (and pictures) when I return.
