New Army: Skaven
I've always thought that one day I would like to do a skaven army. But so far I have resisted, with so many other projects under my belt. When the latest batch of awesome models came out, (doom wheel, plague furnace, etc), it was very hard to resist! With the Isle of blood release it was next to impossible......but I held my ground. I have plenty of projects right now. No need to start a new army.
So me and 2 old friends and war-gaming buddies of mine have an upcoming battle. The original plan was Them: a 2000 pt allied force of Lizard men & Empire against my 2000 pts of WOC. After giving this some thought, one of the allied generals decided it would be unfair for me to field 2000 pts (i.e. 500 pts of possible Chaos lord awesomeness), when they could only each possibly field a 250 pt lord or hero. I concede that there is a bit of logic there.
Which brings me to where I am now. I need a 1000 pt allied force to fight along side my WOC. And it hits me like a bolt of warp lightning.....SKAVEN!!!!
Needless to say, I quickly procured a set of IOB skaven, and I am now happily assembling them and going over what kind of color scheme I will use for my new army. I'm thinking fur like the rat in Ratatouille (space wolves color?). Stay tuned for some painted up Skaven.
