On Friday my fiance surprised me with a box of stormvermin and a doomwheel. My first skaven models!! I decided to start putting together my stormvermin first since i knew i was going to need them in a 600 point game at our local game store saturday with some friends. I put together the front line for a block of 20 i thought i was going to use. Turns out i made my list on army builder wrong so i had to split up my stormvermin to two blocks of 10. my list was:
level 2 wizard
pipes of piebald
20 clan rats (proxyed dwarfs)
I rolled up a 3 and 6 for my spells. Since their wasn't any flying creatures in our game i decided to drop that spell and take warp lightning. With warp lightning and cracks call my ork foe didn't stand a chance. Also this being my second game ever and my first game with my skaven im pretty sure my friend Daniel wasn't being to hard on me. We even had a mysterious forest. He took his black orcs through and rolled a mushroom forest. His wizard decided to take a walk into the mushroom forest to spend two rounds stupid, licking the tree only to stumble out. It was quite amusing. The rattling guns faired quite well. I rolled a good amount of doubles tho and all of them blew up from misfire.
I came home to finish my stormvermin and decided not to put the wepons on them yet since it blocks the body and will make it hard to paint them. I've started reading Grey Seer by C L Werner and in the book they describe an elite group of stormvermin who have white fur so i was thinking about painting the fur white. I have read that white fur is usually for the grey seer's them selfs so i might just might be traditional. The real question is what color do i want the armor to be. Pictures to come when i figure out how i want them painted.
We havn't bought any clan rats yet because when the box set comes out im going to be swimming in them. With two boxes our selfs and a friend of ours is getting it for the high elfs and im trading my high elfs to him for the skaven. All kinds of skaveny goodness. I do think im going to see about getting a few rattling guns. They worked well and are a cheep weapons team.
Well i believe that is all for now.
