    [Warmaster] Skaven

    These have always been my favourite fantasy army.
    Loads of troops, swarm mentatlity.
    So when I got back into gaming the first army I knew I had to have was the RATS. After getting sidetracked with cheap non-skaven armies here we are.
    Just signature pieces and warmachines at the minute.
    But this will be my main army when fully painted

    My armies screaming bell


    VerminLord, I really admire DaveC's work and he has converted a near perfect verminlord for warmaster. I am not so good so here is my version, I always did think that the verminlord looked a bit wimpy for the earthly embodiment of a God? So I used a more butch beastman as my base


    The cauldron of a thousand poxes. House rules to follow

    Some warp lightning cannons


    My pair of doomwheels


    My warpstonepowered tank, inspired from the Gorek & Felix novels.
    This is what would have happened if the skaven HAD managed to steal a steam tank.


    And another shot.

    That would be 50 swarms if my eyes serve me well. Everything looks really. Excellent Job!

    I count nine ratswarms...

    A really nice looking army! The steam tank is a really cool conversion... The couldren of a thousand poxes is also really cool! It could be a nice screaming bell replacement in a clan pestilence army!

    Not as much rat swarms as I have goblins

    Love the army, especially the cauldron!

    Re: [Warmaster] Skaven

    I wrote some house rules a while back for warpfire throwers, poisoned wind globladiers and ratling guns.
    SO in the vain hope they ever find their way to the official list I did 3 stands of each.
    If nothing else they can go in my clanrat units to bolster numbers.

    Poisoned wind globladiers


    Warpfire Throwers


    Ratling guns


    Now off to prep 12 units of clan rats :P

    There should probably only be 12 characters, as place number 13 is saved for the Horned Rat himself.

    Looking good Mick you get through some amount of armies.

    The Verminlord is actually very easy to convert I see you worked out the head (beastmen standard top) the body is an old metal ungor the tail and spear are from plastic skaven the warp orb is a beed of silica, sculpt some fur and thats it.

    Green pics:




    1 of 2 in existance I did another as a commission shortly after this one

    Painted:


    Still haven't finished the base nearly 3 years later but then this is the only skaven piece I painted I sold on my army couldn't face painting all those units!

    Love the massed warmaster armies.

    How does this game play? I mean, compared to Warhammer, how does Warmaster compare?

    This game is based on epic battles of huge numbers.
    Not the skirmish uber-hero based game that WH is.

    The ruleset is easy to pick up and a decent 2000 point army won't break the bank.
    There are specific forums out there that will address any questions you have.

    All that and the rules are a free downloand from www.specialist-games.com
