Skaven Update #19 and a half

Didn't have much time over the weekend but it's getting there.


I'm pretty much done with the first rat ogre- maybe a couple details. The second rat ogre is about halfway through and I've just started to basecoat the base.

Next time I post I should be done. I might even show a sneak peek of what's next! Until then, thanks for looking!

Skaven Update #19

Even though there is a large amount of Island of Blood talk now more than ever I've been recently inspired from threads on Underempire that featured old skaven minis. So from the stuff I listed on things to do I've decided to work on a couple of vintage rat ogres (which would have been part of #2 on the list).


et me introduce you to Riff and Raff. I'll be using them as either one rat ogre unit or a unit filler for my vintage clanrats.


And here's my progress from last night. It's not much but I think it's coming along.

Looking at these minis makes me want to take size comparison pictures of all the rat ogres I have. My, have the ogres grown!

Skaven Update #18

Whew!!! I didn't think I was going to finish this weekend but in the wee hours of Sunday night/ Monday morning I finally finished my entry for this month's painting competition. What is my entry you say? Well you'll have to check out the competition to see what I did. But, will you be able to guess which one is mine?

In the meantime I've been trying to decide on what to do next:

1a) Convert a Warp Grinder weapon team. I have a pretty solid idea on what to do. But, that would mean I'll need to whip up a unit of Night Runners to accompany them.

1b) Whip up Night Runner unit. Not really in the mood to do these dudes but they should paint quite easy considering they will be mostly black.

2) Convert unit fillers(x2). I have a couple of older models that I can use to make 2 unit fillers: one specifically for my night runner unit (ugh, them again) and the other is more generic maybe for a unit of clanrats.

3) War-litter or Bonebreaker? I sort of have an idea for a war-litter conversion but would a Bonebreaker be a better direction?

4) I could also try for the next painting competition which will be warmachines. No plans for conversions though just a straight up paint job.

5) Update my 6th edition Screaming Bell. Maybe touch up the paint and base it on the larger 60x100.

There are ton more I can do but these are on top of the list at the moment. Any suggestions?
