Skaven, Skaven, Skaven

The chittering, the infernal chittering, it gnaws at me.....

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:


  1. Psst. Those aren't Space Wolves :)

    I got bit by the WHFB bug last year and painted up a Dwarf army. When I repainted my Space Wolves last summer, I found that I was much better at painting the skin and beards because of painting the Dwarfs. I'm sure the same will be true for you.

    The rats look good. Keep up the good work and I hope to see more (although I hope to see Wolves more!)


  2. I promise I'll keep the Space Wolves posts coming, no worries there.

    It is a bit of fun to paint something completely different, and I was a lot more relaxed about painting them as well which was quite the change.
