New Skaven Project And There Is Strength In Numbers.

As you will all probably be aware I have just recently sold my Warhammer Night Goblin Army, so I have some funds in the hobby Kitty, to spent on my next project. It took quite a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to be, but I definitely knew it was going to be warhammer. Over the last few years 40K has been well catered for in my hobby, and I thought it was time for a change.

So the only question was exactly what army would I like to collect,and it wasn't an easy one to answer straight away, with a lot of looking around the Internet for much-needed help it was decided it would be Skaven with a few obvious reasons. 

For me it came down to price, I do not have a lot of disposable income to spend on a brand-new army, off-the-shelf and with the release of island of blood box set recently, they are available online on eBay, for next to nothing which is always a good start in my book.

 The models have been completely revamped and their book has only recently been released which makes them very effective on the tabletop and somewhat competitive which for me although not necessarily the number one reason it certainly helps, after all I did play night goblin's so it would be nice to maybe when the game below is some pictures of some inspiration that I came across to use and like the look of.

Also modelling and converting opportunities are a big draw to these little fellows as I have recently came across some very impressive work which I hope to post.

these are some of the models that I have recently got on eBay and they just looked too good not to have in my army.

just goes to show what can be achieved with a little bit of imagination when it comes to conversions something that I want incorporate into the project. 

one of my favourites and something I'm going to use when I get round to doing my own.

So recently I have already started with buying the book on eBay for nearly half price which is a good start also I have picked up a few classic OOP models so the project is well underway, which in turn gives the army a very unique look mixing old and new.

also if you have any ideas or suggestions may contact.


  1. If it wasn't for my wife getting laid off my Skaven army would be under way. Unfortunately times are tough but I so want to dip my toes into Fantasy with Skaven. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

  2. couldn't agree with you more hot Panda there never seems to be enough money in your hobby bank account when trying to keep your partner happy.
