Here is the works-in-progress page for my ongoing Skaven army. I am primarily a hobbyist, love converting/assembling most of all, sculpting next,
painting just a little, and finally gaming. I rarely paint, and game once every couple years. But I know the rules, love the game, and find the figures exciting.
My plan for the Skaven was to have an army representing each of the major clans, although my tendencies towards Skryre will ensure that is the largest faction.
I'll use the rules for Clan Eshin from the Storm of Chaos campaign,
the Hell Pit army list from Warhammer Chronicles for Clan Moulder,
the Bubonic Court of Nurglitch from the Lustria Campaign for Clan Pestilens,
and the basic Skaven army book for Clan Skryre.
Since I started this website more than a year ago, Games Workshop seems determined to make all of my efforts moot. You can no longer order individual bitz from their
website, making my efforts to catalog the bitz which go into conversions practically useless. Almost all of the hobby articles and community content were removed from
their website with the 2008 redesign, so instead of linking to the appropriate sections of their website, I am forced to reprint rules they have relegated to history.
Hence, the links below go to the most readable version of the content I can find. All other content that was of value on the GW website, such as pictures
of GW staff conversions, painting, etc. are regrettably lost, probably forever.
So in no particular order, I'm going to attempt to describe each model I am working on.
I will attempt to describe as completely as possible the concept, the parts that went into the conversion, and the work I did.
I'll also try to identify the conversions to the rat ogres and giant rats using the pit fighting mutation lists from Games Workshop
(which used to be available on their website until their new 2008 website rolled out) or from the Clan Moulder Pitfighter League at
The UnderEmpire. If you haven't visited the UnderEmpire, it's a great source of ideas, fluff, articles, and even an online rpg.
