Skaven Update #33!

Time for an update!  A Skaven update no less!

Finally got my hands on the new rat ogres.  I don’t play Warhammer anymore so I took my time to pick up a set for really cheap.

Getting them assembled was real simple and straight forward but executing it took a bit of time.  Although the fittings didn’t need glue they were really tight.  I was afraid I’d break something as I was trying to put pieces together.  I’m still not confident I put them together flush and tight.

Anyway, despite that I like the sculpts.  Really nice design.  I do wish their poses could have been more different.  Too bad they only put out 2 designs.

What really disappointed me was how close their size was to the previous rat ogre models.  From the pictures on the web and magazines I had imagined them a little bigger, at least a tad taller.

Eh, whatevs.  I’ve got’em finally and now my rat ogre unit is complete!  But so when’s the next time I’ll paint my skaven?  That’s a good question.  I’d like to know that too.

Oh I have another skaven-related news! What?   I have another conversion idea.  I’ve been slowly picking up bitz online.  Once I have all the pieces or I find out my plan won’t work I’ll let you know.

Other news?

Video games: Finished Red Dead Redemption.  Waiting for Grand Theft Auto 5 to drop in price (means I’ll probably pick it up sometime next year).  Playing Batman Arkham City.

Tabletop games: Avoiding Star Wars: X-Wing but interested in Star Trek: Attack Wing.

Comics:  Loving Marvel’s Infinity story arc.

Miniatures:  Brainstorming on making a display board for my Infinity army.  Picked up some Bandua terrain.  Admiring Corvus Belli's Infinity artbook.  Mmm, pretty pictures.
