Escalation League Build Up: Skaven

As I mentioned in my last post, I am joining an Escalation League at my local Games Worshop store. The deadline for sign up is this weekend, and the rules haven't been hammered out yet. Oh, and I am doing Skaven. So, since my daughter is sick and can't go in to daycare today, I found myself with some time to start putting together models. These are all from my old 6th edition army box I bought when they re-released Skaven for 6th. The models are different than how they model them now (I like the newer incarnation better, but since I already have these). I spent time cleaning up the mold spurs and flash and got them based and put together. Here's what I got so far.

2 Ratling Gun teams

Warlock Engineer

3/12 Storm Vermin

Warplock Jezzail Team. I have one more but have yet to assemble it.

10 Plague Monks
I have other stuff too I have yet to assemble. I have a box of 20 Night Runners which I may see if I can't make them into Gutter Runners. I have a Doomwheel (new plastic version), Warplightning Cannon (metal version), the exclusive Battle Standard Bearer from the box set (partially assembled), a Warlord, another Engineer, a Grey Seer, and I have two boxes of Clanrats. I also have a bunch of stuff from the Island of Blood box set that I split with a friend. So that added a Poison Wind Mortar team, a Warpfire Thrower, yet another Engineer, another Warlord, and about 40 more Clanrats. I also picked up two boxes of Night Goblins to use as Skavenslaves since I will be modelling them as Clan Mors who fight Night Goblins a lot and take them as slaves.

More updates to come. And once the league starts, I plan on posting Battle Reports.

WHFB Escalation League

I signed up to do an Escalation League at my local Games Workshop store. For those not familiar with it, an Escalation League is where you start small -- typically around 500-750 points -- then you add on to it by a set amount every month or so. It's a great way to start a new army, so typically that's what you do. So, I will be starting Skaven. I still have my box set from 6th edition so I have plenty of minis to start. I will report on how it goes. The details haven't been hammered out yet.
