I have completed the last unit of Clanrats of the original Skaven army (less the island of Blood set)
That take it to over 100 Clanrats fully painted. + all the other stuff in the army. I will post the complete army as soon as I can gets some shots of it.
The last unit of Clan Spear-rats deserves special mention. In a battle fought long ago this unit held against a charge of Ugla Khan's Wolf Riders to the front and Vesparo's Vendetta in the flank. The Skaven general managed to get insane courage after losing enough troops to need a 3 to pass. Then the next turn, in an event that boggles my mind to this day, the depleted unit of ratlings managed to WIN the combat while the RGH rolled a massive double 6 and fled only to have the Skaven run the wolf riders down and destroy them!
It was decided that they should get a special paint job for their awesomeness. I decided to base them (loosely) on the Spartans as depicted in the movie 300. Notice the non skaven like banner and the general aggressive positioning of the models and I think you will agree that it was a good call.
So without further delay I give you The Rats of Clan SPARTA
