24_Cigarettes has collected and painted a massive Skaven Horde from which the 3,000 point army shown in the adjoining photographs was selected.
A single survivor from each of the Clan's victories is crucified upon the banner's crossbeam, such unfortunate souls endure horrific torture as their flesh is flayed from their bones by bound carrion birds. The power of the standard keeps these poor victims alive so that every ounce of pain is wrought from them without mercy until all but a shallow husk remains. 10th Hero: Hand weapon, heavy armour, BSB, Talismanic & Relic properties: 178 points.
25th Hero with Heavy Spell-Tempered-Armour, magical halberd with Degenerative & Parasitic properties. 187 points.
10 man Koga Ninja Team (Gutter Runners) with poisoned attacks, light armour, shield and slings. 145 points.
You will notice, being the astute reader you are that I've overspent by 4 points on characters, not that big a deal; well it shouldn't be anyway, if I met an opponent who made it a big deal I would seriously reconsider playing them; I'm not a rules lawyer and can't stand playing them.
I took units I liked over the most combat effective; I played a mock game with 8 Warpfire throwers and it was shall we say an eleven bbq. It was hilarious for me, not so much for the elves.
I engineered my list with my opponent's enjoyment in mind, I haven't been accused of being a power gamer yet and I hope not to be.
I definitely believe in the Stillmanic approach to army building; make a list & never change it, paint/model your magic items and to hell with the odds, enjoy yourself!
That being said the army in smaller denominations has a record of 4-1, which I attribute more to luck than battlefield acumen.
Thanks for reading, thanks for following and thanks for watching my collection grow! Please comment or ask a question, they are always welcome!
