This'll be quite the departure for me, I'm having a go at Fantasy. I've been interested in giving it a go for a while now, and with the release of the 8th edition book I thought it was timely for me to have a go. I've never felt the same draw to fantasy as I have to 40K, the background just doesn't seem to have the same draw, and there are few armies that I can feel a connection to. Funnily enough, the skaven are one, something about them just appeals to me, for one they are the only fantasy army for which I have an army book, so, with the inclusion of skaven in the new starter box, it all seemed to be falling into place.
Anyway, I had a week looking after a house with little else to do, so here's the result of 6 nights of painting, the whole boxset painted up, just basing and the glowing warpstone left to do. Lots of pictures below:
The core troops, one unit with spears, one with hand weapons:
The weapon teams:
Rat Ogres and handler, these models are fantastic, just fantastic:
The warlock engineer and the chieftan/warlord:
and finally, the whole force together:
