Queek Headtaker

Queek was pretty straight forward as far as painting.  He makes a pretty good death star unit as far as stormvermin are concerned…. wish he could be included in a Bell unit.

I have been painting and painting and painting rats!  I’m starting to get sick of them and I’m not even half done.  I still have 40 rats and 3 weapons teams left who need fur highlights, which means I’ve added Highlights to 5 Rat Ogres and 80 rats (or so).  Once I finish the fur, I’ll add the skin tone, followed by the basing highlights, the cloth, and the metal.  Probably another two weeks before I finish all these…

Skaven Plague Furnace

Added brown to 8 more rats last night and the bases of all the aforementioned items.  Tonight’s date night, so the painting should commence tomorrow night!

Plague furnace really wasn’t that bad to paint, just the inside joints were a pain to get to…

Deathmaster Snikch

Holy Crap it’s been a long time since I’ve posted!  Alrighty; new year, new commitment.  I didn’t hit 2 units a week, although I DO think I hit over 65 units painted for last year.  I should have just been happy with 1 unit a week.  :p  So anyways, here we go again:  1 unit per week commitment.  Currently I’m working on 120 rats (4 units), 3 Rat Ogres, a Bone Breaker w/Skaven Warlord, a Warp Lightning canon, 5 assault marines, a dreadnought, a vindicator, 5 sanguinary guard, 5 Blood Crushers, Skulltaker on a Juggernaut, 3 weapons teams, a Warlock engineer, and a chaos dwarf sorcerer on a Lammasu… 16 units altogether.  This will probably be similar to when I was working on all my daemons; a lot of “slow” progress, but I’ll finish several units over the course of a few weeks.

Deathmaster Snikch was pretty easy.  Granted I don’t do any wild advanced paint schemes, but for the most part he was all one color with a few embellishments here and there.  I don’t find assassins to be very valid in the new Skaven book; the couple of times that I have used them, they’ve been pretty worthless…

I’m fairly excited about the new Skaven units coming out; I’ll most likely get one of each of the new items so I can have two Hell Pit Abominations, Plague Claw Catapults, Warp Lightning canons, etc.  I think the Doom Flayer in particular looks very good.  I’m also excited at the prospect of getting a Storm Raven in February…

Skaven Jezzails

This unit is not as big as it should be.  I gets off some good shots, but it doesn’t kill enough to cause a panic check.  I need to up it to at least 5, if not more in case one or two miss their shots.  They are super-powerful, though.  Strength 6 with armour piercing and magic is insane!  Definitely a valuable unit.

Painted a little last night and finished my Rhino, Prince Sigvald, and my Khorne Battle Standard Bearer.  numbers updated below.

Dragon Ogres

The models that Games Workshop currently makes for Dragon Ogres are pretty ugly.  I got the idea for this conversion online, but I can’t remember where… Basically, it’s a dark elf cold one mixed with a black orc.  Pretty easy conversion, but its also pretty awesome.

More painting last night, and today I’ve been putting together my blood angels dreadnought librarian.

Skaven Vermin Lord

This was a conversion that I based off of some ideas that I saw over at the underempire (http://underempire.net/?act=site).  I used the Rat Ogre that came with the Screaming Bell and added some horns and a warpstone weapon to make him a Vermin Lord.  Unfortunately, when I spray painted him, he got all gunky on one side.  So his back is nice and detailed, but his front looks like he has some weird disease.  Oh well.  😀

Didn’t do any painting yesterday, but I’m still confident that I’ll finish by this weekend.

Nurgle Sorcerer

This was a really simple conversion that I did on Gamesday last year.  Fortunately, he fits in really well with a unit of Chaos Warriors, and you can never have enough Sniping Nurgle Sorcerers, right?  😉

Worked on the Kroot and the Dreadnought yesterday and I’m almost done with both.  No worries about making tomorrow’s deadline.

Looks like tomorrow night a group of us will be playing an 1850 pt Planet Strike.  Imperium defending (Black Templars, Space Wolves, Battle Sisters, and Imperial Guard) vs non-Imperium (Chaos Marines, Daemons, Tau, and Orks).  It’ll be 1850 per side, so everyone will bring about 450 pts to contribute to the force organization.  Should be weird and fun!  😀
