I came very close to starting Fantasy with Skaven, but got put off by the number of ratmen to paint. So I decided to go for a smaller and slower force, the Dawi-Zharr.
Got back into 40k this year and my space marine force has grown quite a bit, although not all painted yet :S
However I want to get back in to Fantasy. When I played before, it was the time of the old single pose plastic troop boxes. I had bits of various armies such as wood elves, chaos dwarves and beastmen.
So anyway was thinking about what I could collect and ended up on the forgeworld website and so it was between Skaven (vermin lord) and empire (Theodore Bruckner).
I was also interested to see how cheap the Skaven from the Island of Blood can be had on good ol' ebay.
So anyway onto a photo. I present you my first Skaven. A £3.24 (inc postage!) Warlord:
I also ordered the IoB warlock, so once that is painted, I'll move onto some troops. I'm leaning towards the idea of Clan Skyre force (Ikit and warlock engineers), with a focus on stormvermin, slaves and some of the Skyre warmachines.
