Skaven Update


I just wanted to take a minute and show off the latest completed project. A while back I showed you the modified Screaming Bell I did for my son's Skaven army.

When the bell was put together we decided to build a unit of Clanrats that were dedicated to the it. We put them together and painted them up to a table top standard. I did the Bell and the Son worked on the Rats. The only thing we did not do was the bases.
Flash forward to about a week ago. I went through the Skaven army to see what still needed painting. When I saw the Bell Crew (as we call them) Still sitting with plain bases I decided to take action.

it took a few days since there were actually 5 Rats that did not get painted on the first go. I also created place holders for 5 Clanrats to bring the unit up to 35 and with the Bell in place they form a Horde 50 in size!

I matched the bases to the rest of the army.

Take a look.

Yesterday I purchased the new Skaven one-off Leader for the Island of Blood.

I will post pictures of him when he is more presentable.

Just a quick Post to show off the new Ganger I made over the weekend.

My gang managed to pick up a suit of Carapace armor and a power Fist!!!

I decided to give them both to one fellow and make him the leader's body guard.

Here he is...

Under the weather

Hello all,

I have been sick since Saturday morning. I got up with a slight twinge in my throat and I knew this three day weekend would suck. I was like a psychic because the next 4 days were pretty rough.

The weekend started out so good too. I took the wife out to dinner and a movie. Dinner at Fridays and "Life as we Know it" for the film. Both were enjoyable. obviously the quiet before the storm.

Saturday was the worst (A sore throat makes me miserable company. Just ask my wife.) I did not feel particularly bad other than my throat but it was enough. The wife took me out to try to make make feel better. we stopped by Huzzah games. (my first time there) I really liked the store and for a few minutes I forgot about my suffering. She bought me a GF9 Tac template and bought herself the Showgirls crew for Malifaux. I saw Bill from the "gamers lounge" and said hello but did not want to get too close since I figured I was coming down with something and did not want to "share the love." They were playing Malifaux and I was a little down because I could not stay to watch and learn. I plan to return soon. (The Wife is reading the Malifaux book and thinks the Tuesday night games might be a good idea.)

The rest of the day just got worse. By Sunday afternoon the sore throat was gone and I thought I was past the worst of it...
I was wrong. The stuffy nose and fever started Sunday night and continued through Monday into Tuesday. I tried to sleep on Monday night only to find that I was unable to do so. Whats even worse I kept waking the Wife up with my "belly Aching." I ended up spending the entire night watching "Life after people." At 2 AM I sent my job the email for not coming in on Tuesday. I spent Tuesday recouping and catching up on sleep.

Wednesday was my first day back. I am pleased that I got many "welcome backs" and "glad your back" My boss told me I was not allowed to take any more days off ever... I guess I was missed. :)


on the + side I got lots of painting done. So here is a quick breakdown.


I finished my set of defense lines and the last of my Orlock and Goliath gangers.


My "Spirits of Vengeance" crew is really coming along. I finished the Onryo I think they look Smashing.


I painted up a unit of 8 Kazad Guard and a Dwarf Standard Bearer.

I also painted Buhrdur The Troll lord from the Angmar Army!

Anyway not bad for a few sick days!!!
