First up is my Giant Rat-Orc, a simple Clan Moulder trick of removing an Orc's head and then bolting it to a Giant Rat's body. Legs & possibly arms to follow.
This bad boy is inspired by the Skavenslayer book by Bill King where specially bred rats could eat huge amounts of food causing a famine in Nuln. It has the head of a Warpfire Thrower firer bulked up with blobs of greenstuff.All I really need to do now is sculpt some rather large incisors & his other front leg & he's ready for painting.

Cthuluesque Giant Rat
Somewhere in the depths of Hell Pit, some Master Moulder thought that crossing a rat with some kind of astral deity of unimaginable power would be cool, and rather scary. Being unable to catch the aforementioned unnameable being he probably spliced it with a big sea anemone.
Clan Moulder salesmen are constantly being asked by unhappy warlords 'How do we get into fortresses without too much aggro?'. The answer: the patent pending Mole Rat, for all your tunneling needs!
Scythy the Scythe-headed rat
How do you make a Giant Rat even more unpleasant? Weld a scythe to his head & hey presto! An instantly more killy rat.
Rat with a Hat
I chopped the head from a Clanrat & decided to put the head to good use. It is highly likely that other rats in the unit will be jealous but that's part & parcel of being Packmasters Pet!

"Look Out, He's Got A Knife!"
A similar amount of greenstuff for this skaven head to be attached to, but with a stump with a knife blade attached to it. This fella is from the bad part of town

"You can still see the stitches!"
Skavenslave has his head removed, stitched onto a giant rat, it's that simple. I could leave him like that as some kind of slug rat I suppose.
I thought I'd try my hand and putting a few more branches on this bugger, to denote that he is a Treeman Ancient rather than one of these whippersnapper treemen of only a few centuries old.
|Rat that looks like a treeman|
Took the head off one of the Oldhammer Rat Ogres to make another Giant Rat, but I realized that a huge head would look silly with a small body, so in typical Clan Moulder fashion I thought, sewing two rat bodies to that big ole fat neck should make everyone happy! The skaven equivalent of the Nobel prize awaits!

Giddy Up Rat Horsey!
This one has only just been started, I was rummaging around in my bits box & found this part of a centaur body, with a correctly sculpted rat torso you've got a pretty freaky figure.
