Phew. Made the cut. I was getting concerned back there as I decided to start this journey with a unit of 20 models and time is marching on. Really must start smaller next year as I'm not a speed painter...
Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar (AoS) is the current flavour in our gaming group and even though I've never been a big fantasy player I've found myself drawn in by the incredibly infectious enthusiasm of the group!
And apologies for the picture quality - a lightbox is on the way ready for next Monday!
Let me introduce you to the first unit in my Grand Alliance: Chaos army. This, by way of introduction, is a Skaven Plague Monks unit from Clan Pestilens. I recommend NOT shaking them by the hand (paw?).
20 Rats strong and full of the joys of various diseases, ailments and illnesses that make a hypochondriac look positively full of the joys of spring.
I opted for a muted colour scheme of purples and greys. The blades are covered in gunk that is not particularly healthy so I used some of Citadel's new technical paints to give them a rough look.
This variety of races is perfect for my hobby butterfly approach to building and painting.
Next up: Daemons. Hopefully. Maybe. Well quite possibly something else.
MilesR: Nick these are really nice Skaven. The texture on the swords is really well done. I wouldn't worry too much about your hobby butterfly approach - more than a few of your fellow challengers have the same affliction.
I haven't tried Age of Sigmar - how do you find the rules?
