Yesterday I finally finished my first Hordes of the Things army project, a 60-point Skaven army made up of well over 100 miniatures. Painting took just under ten months, proving it's not about having time to paint, it's about having patience. Everything is plastic except the general (back right). Most are GW figures straight out of the box, but the Beast bases (back left corner) combine pieces from the Packmaster & Giant Rats box with loose rats from the Plague Monk sprue, and the wizard base (front center) is the optional Plague Furnace crew from the Screaming Bell set, with the pull ropes altered to look like banners.

Here's my favorite guy:

That's right. He's going to kick your ass with a piece of paper.

Who can stand up to the vermin horde?

Maybe this guy. But he's going to need a lot of friends....

Very impressive!

You have to respect an army that includes a rat lawyer, ready to nail you with his web of cheesy semantics.

The catapult thing in back is quite nice.

Now to put the Skaven up vs. Steve's Star Wars HoTT army.

I just pre-ordered the Chaos in the Old World Skaven expansion. Perhaps we can give it a shot sometime.
