Everybody Skaven!

Even the local hardware store is feeling it!
So, I would never recommend a product; especially to members of a community far more venerable than I. But, I have to say, I've used a boatload of paint strippers and this by far has been the best.
There is no indoor plumbing in the under empire!
This stuff stripped these guys in under 24 hours. I was loathe to test this stripper on anything I really cared about so just bunged in some 14yr old goliaths and some 5th edition chaos marauders. I didn't realize the champ of Khorne was in there til it was too late.
They came out pretty damn fine; better than anything else I've seen in such a short stretch of time.
Except on these buggers. I got em off eBay a while ago; dunno what their previous owner(s) could've used for primer but they definitely had longevity in mind.
So back in they go!
They'll be amongst good company: Stormvermin, plague monks, and a future allies contingent..........
Until next time!

Some Real progress

Right that's 38 ratmen done.
It probably doesn't seem like much to you veteran warlords out there but to me it's a start. 
3 more batches this size and I'll be done. 
The horde as a whole
10 plague monks with standard
15 Clanrats with musician standard and hero
10 slaves 
Rat Ogre and animal handlers
Hope you guys like 'em. I'm not going to base them until I've got at least another 30 or so done, I've built up a bit of steam and I don't want to switch gears yet.
Only 98 to go! Ughhhh I mean woo hoo!

Churning on

No large update today just a handful of rats finished.
I was really into painting up these plague monks until I ran across the scroll on the one pose. 
Damned scroll.
Any time I saved from their shoulder to toe robes has easily been negated by the twice damned scrolls.
No wonder a warp scroll costs 100 points; it's a point per minute painting it up!
Anyway enough bitching. I've got 34 skaven painted up so far which puts me 1 up on my 1 a day challenge.
I'm on pace to have the army finished by Christmas.
Now that would be a gift!

Some progress

Not much done today, at least re goal of minimum of 1 a day was finished. Comments and criticism/advice welcome.


It took me near an hour to finish this f*cking scroll. 
That being said do I leave it "blank" or free hand something at risk of ruining it?

Nearly done

Not having the details on this unit finished was driving me nuts. So, after 10 hours of painting yesterday here is the final result:

The swarm grows

Nearly finished standard musician champion and a rank and file in just under 5 hours today. 
Pretty happy with results so far. Still touch ups and minor things to pick out.

Progress... Glorious progress

So this is my savage horde of ratmen (all 16 of them). Only 120 to go.

I'm happy with the standard they're painted to. Yes I know they're barely battlefield quality. I don't care. I like em. And I've got 136 of em. 
'Nuff said.
And yes I know the photos are proper shit. There an i product. 


Hey all (if any) 
Apologies for inactivity work, family life etc. you've heard it elsewhere and more eloquently than here. 
I just wanted to congratulate everyone who was able to participate in the Oldhammer weekend.
 I'm  especially happy to see another skaven player. Nice to know there's another sadist out there.
I would've loved to have flown over but fishing weekend, anniversary and a vegas bachelor party has rendered the travel budget mort.
In the meantime my good chum and I have started a border princes campaign which were both quite pleased with. Here's some pics
