Dez ToMG 2014 - Skaven (RATS!)

Postby Dez » Mon Mar 10, 2014 10:30 am

Hey All!

I'm not going to set any concrete goals for myself, because then I think of it as work and this is supposed to be something I want to do. So, I'm just going to paint like crazy and post what I finish. Which, I've found, works really well for me. In the past 2 months, I've built several thousand points of Skaven.

The other thing I'm trying to do is tie up loose ends with some of my armies. I have stuff that jusst needs to get finished, whether it's a repaint, missing units, etc. So my goal is to fill up my display shelves with painted stuff!

So here is some of the stuff I've done or finished this year so far:

What aims do the Orks have? What is the point of a tornado?

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

My goal for the month of March is to finish 1500 points of Skaven, I'm off to a slow start though. I'm almost done with a unit of 25 Clan Rats, and I've done a Hero which you can find here http://s6.zetaboards.com/The_UnderEmpir ... 437/1/#new.

Can you guess which one is mine? Go ahead and vote for your favorite there!

It's gotta be the Slaw.

Nice work Dez. Good luck on the Skaven. It'll be nice to have more people playing Fantasy.

So here I have fully painted and based: Ikit Claw, 25 Clan Rats, and a Plaguewind Catapult:

Crazy busy times, but somehow manages to finish up the Warplightning Cannon.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Thanks Kev! I've been practicing it for a while now, I think it's become a trademark ;)

I got the 35 Stormvermin done! I had a little bit of fun with these guys, and made them rank up so that the Musician faces backwards. This rat is smart enough to know that the way the music is turned down is with a knife in the back. Unfortunately he will be in trouble from whatever they meet in the front, but he knows the greater threat ;) I also modeled several of these guys with shields on their backs and arms, also as insurance against knives in the back ;)

I really like those Storm Vermin. That looks fantastic. The Assassins are pretty sweet too.

I'm not a big fan of the Brown undercoat you give the clan rats. I'm trying to reserve judgement until I see them in person. They have a brown tint to them that doesn't look right. But the fur on the Storm Vermin came out great.

With the way you're pumping these out, you should be fully painted by the May Tournament.

Maybe I'll even churn out a unit or two to get up to snuff. Or maybe I'll just finish building my cold ones...
