Bones 2: Rodents of Unusual Size

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 […]

Age of Sigmar

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 […]

The Horde is done! (for now)

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. […]

More Skaven

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 […]

Some 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 […]

The Skaven horde grows!

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 […]

Some Skaven

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.  […]

My Skaven army for Warhammer

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 […]
