Thanks for the replies guys ^_^

That is an impressive horde you have there. How is your Win/Lose ratio with such a large pool of disposable rats to throw at your opponent?

Win/Loss at the moment is sitting around the 2:1 ratio for now. Don't get to many tournaments but I do play with a cut throat group of guys and gals. And disposable is the name of the game with skaven :D

They certainly look the part of a skittering horde. The stormvermin in particular look perfect. The dirty blue works surprisingly well as a contrasting colour to the greys and browns without looking too uniform. How are the bases going to be finished? Just plain sandy brown like an underground tunnel or have these rats come out from their burrows to spread disease and death above ground?

When I first put sand on the bases my house mate dubbed them "Desert Rats" so the name has sorta stuck. Probably a few patches of dead grass here and there to break the bleakness up and the odd bit of detritus. Hell, with the new end times fluff skaven are currently picking a fight with araby, so it sorta fits!

Hey all! Almost done with my skaven ^_^ The manager at my local GW decided to shove them in the cabinet, despite their unfinished nature, and even took a few snaps of them :D Bases are yet to be completed, but it's a lot of work, so hopefully that can be ignored for now :D

First up is an army wide (ish) shot, missing out on the rat darts, Doomwheels and warp lightning cannons.



The warlord on bonebreaker/ warlitter. Grey seer to the left and the verminlord at the back



Stormvermin. All 60 of them. Plus the chieftain BSB that still needs his banner doing!



To do list:

Finish the basing (Static grass and edges for the most part)
Start (and hopefully finish) the 20 Poisoned wind globadier conversions
Paint said globadiers.
Warlocks - one with brass orb, one with doomrocket and another with warp condenser.
Rogre dart made from SM centurions to make clockwork, warpstone powered rat ogres!

I'll see if I can find some for you at some point. Don't worry - they are valid, just give em a shot.

Ice: For ice on a pond, blister packs with superglue on them. Build up a good layer on one side, make sure you have the odd blob here and there for thick ice. Paint the rest of the base and have a dark blue/ brown pool for the ice to go over. Stick the sheet so that it is a mm or 2 above the surface of the base. Gloss varnish the top layer to get that smooth look. Then finish adding on the base, masking the edges of the "ice" sheet.

For chunks of ice use rock salt with a layer of gloss varnish.

For icicles stick a flying base stand in a pencil sharpener (the thinner end) and make a point. Glue to the model with super glue (try and find some that make a cloudy effect when dry.) then apply gloss varnish all over, being careful to not make a bulb at the bottom of the point.

See? This might have been useful in the hobby board....

The problem with the spam thread is that it was only for stuff like that - not for full blown conversations.

On the current page of the GED you have 2 discussions going on - one for beer and the like and one for A-level results. Those two talks one have constituted new threads on the Enclave boards.

And as I said to Narric - close down the spam thread and let people roam elsewhere. If it's off of this forum then thats no real loss to the forum as a whole, they were not doing anything in regards to contributing to the forum anyway. Harsh I know, but thats what facebook is for, not an online forum for discussing 40k armies. Some may wander about on the forum to find those people that they used to only talk to in the GED thread, find them in a army thread, painting tip bit or a hobby plog.

Lock it and close it down for a week or so (hell, I'll do it if you want) and see what happens.
