I have not had the time to paint anything these last few weeks, but I did this pair for the LAF old school painting party back in September. Somehow I forgot to post them here. This is your bog standard Skaven Packmaster, 90s era. I have used a modern lipped 30mm round base. Originally […]Read More Middle-school Skaven
Reaper make Skaven in Bonesium too! Of course, they are called “wererats” not “skaven”. but still. Judge for yourselves: Being Bones, they are slightly soft in the details, especially the smaller minis. They are made of the slightly more rigid Bones material that most of the second kickstarter Bones were done in, and […]Read More Bones 2: Rodents of Unusual Size
Almost a whole month has come and gone without me touching brush to mini. So to get back on track I chose do some minis that are quick and easy. First up are what I have left of the Warhammer Quest Giant Rats. I have only found 7 of the original 12, as […]Read More Nothing done this last month…so here are some rats
This month I have been painting just small drips and dabs here and there in between everything else in what little time I have had for such things. So I have not really been able to do all that much. But I did get few hours in yesterday, and so I managed to actually finish […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: Skaven Deathrunners
So the Age of Sigmar is upon us is it? It’s definatly not the Warhammer I know, that’s for sure. I can’t see this rule set working without making every game a narrative one. There is absolutely no way to balance it. It seems the rules strongly favor the player using few but powerful models, and horde […]Read More Age of Sigmar
This winter has been a long wintery swamp of prep, what with the arm not wanting to hold anything still for any length of time and all. Also several kickstarters have started delivering product, flooding me with lots and lots of miniatures to prep, and far too much to choose from… what little time I […]Read More Luciphuzz WIP part 3, and a pack of rats!
119 of the blighters. One is missing, as it flew off its base and dissappeared in my garden somewhere. I am currently painting up a replacement, bringing the horde up to two regiments of 60 clanrats or slaves. So that is four such regiments done. The clanrats are all bought off Ebay in several batches. […]Read More The Horde is done! (for now)
Doomwheel The old metal Doomwheel I got cheap on ebay. The base is a resin of unknown make, it came with a set of assorted metal skaven also bought on ebay. The flagpole is off a metal stormvermin. Another excellent Harlequin miniatures Ver’Men. This time an Assassin. This one has been dipped, dark tone […]Read More More Skaven
I really like this model: from Harlequin miniatures, cirka year 1999/2000 or so. They made a series of Skaven knock-offs substitutes called Ver’men, during a time when Citadel did not supply many skaven figures. I believe this was a successful line for Harlequin. The figures are not as good or detailed as their contemporary Citadel […]Read More Some Skaven
Oh, why do I fall for Horde armies? There are too many figures and take ages to paint! The third and fourth 60-strong units of skaven clanrats/slaves are coming along nicely. three figures are missing, 1 is the first test figure for the colour scheme, which is finished and not part of this batch. 2 […]Read More The Skaven horde grows!
I am currently doing a mass unit of slightly less than 60 figures in one fell swoop. Or rather, one protracted, repetetive monotonous paint-everything-of-the-same-colour in a sitting. Which is in a sense quite meditative, after I get past the settling-in phase, and enter the flow of it. After all, this army is made for dipping. […]Read More Some Skaven
So a quick tally: I have not bothered actually making an army list, rather I have concentrated on getting the models both bought, assembled and painted. The main bulk of the army will consist of massed ranks anyway. Pictures will appear when I get round to taking some. 23 Stormvermin, metal -done 16 Stormvermin, plastic […]Read More My Skaven army for Warhammer
