After a recent game of Warhammer using my beloved Skaven army I decided to share it with anyone who might be interested. I've been collecting skaven since 1992 so there are a lot of old figures with old paint jobs on them. As I am very much a fair weather painter (I generally only paint when I'm playing) my rate of figure completion is rather erratic. As I've been playing quite a lot recently I have been painting more too so my army may well after 20 years get finished!
First picture is of the army as I brought it round to Phil's for a game. My two most notable absentee units were my plague monks and my rat ogres. Apart from a few barely base coated models I used to make up numbers for the game this is what I brought.
|The battling rats of Clan Pusfoot|
|Bugger all points of almost mayhem|
|Unnamed Clan in Purple|
|Stormvermin baby, yeah!|
|Clan Pusfoot, yay!|
Here are some more of my cheap as chips Skavenslaves. these have been painted fairly recently so the bases are built up. These have a fair old smattering of greenstuff rats, carbuncles and farming equipment instead of lethal weapons, but I think it gives them a certain air of patheticity that all slaves should have.
|More indentured rats|
Here's probably the most fun thing in a Skaven army. Warpfire Throwers. Anything that can kill 16+ models in one go and make the rest scamper off the table in panic has to be good. Oh yeah, and they frequently rout my own units too. But as any experienced Skaven general will tell you, every model in the army has it's own agenda!
|Frothing Rabid Smoke Kill|
|Great Horned Rat Fundamentalists|
|Pew, pew, pew! Dakka dakka!|
|Black clad Death Machines|
