...to (from?) some scrawny ratty boys:
The downside to which being every flaw on these secondhand miniatures that I stripped is more visible in this picture, but for 2 points a model I don’t think I’ll lose any sleep over that. Pretend that lump on the bell is a specifically modelled clapper, wouldn’t you?
When you add the singular model for this unit I’d previously painted (last year!), we get my second complete unit for the Road to the Old World challenge:
Being that they’re only Skavenslaves, this isn’t a huge amount of points out of what I need to paint - between this and my rat dart, the running total of painted Skaven is now 85 points. Still quite a way to get to 500… on the other hand, in painting this unit I’ve now painted more models than my opponent will have to for his whole army, so who’s the real winner here?
Painting these brings the Tally to:
44 vs 46 = -2
(and also brings me a huge leap closer to my annual challenge of painting at least 52 miniatures each year to average one a week)
Now having a proper unit to shove around, I thought I’d see about making a movement tray. I dug out some materials from the basement:
Then I cut it out, and removed the corners to allow the excess ‘lip’ I’d allowed for to be folded up.
