A quick bit of background: this team is actually meant for my son, who chose Skaven as his favourite team when he perused the rosters (I suspect I have a future speed freak on my hands). As such, I've let him pick the colour scheme, and he's stated "mainly yellow and green, with blue trim".

To remove all chance of misunderstanding, I whipped up a sketch of two of the players, and have coloured them in to what I think he meant. He's in bed right now, so I'll get his judgement tomorrow. And if he disagrees, he can colour them in himself!

I'd love to be able to just 'whip up a sketch and colour them in'! Awesome!

That was my second thought. My first thought was, "I wonder where he got that template from?" before I realised he drew the Skaven.

Drawing Skaven isn't all that hard... here's my 'whipped up' attempt.

Close, but your little artistic sojourn actually bears a more striking resemblance to one of my Slann, Moraiwe.

Are they going to be called the Canberra Waders? (Through political sewerage, presumably).

Sculpting is completed on the Rat Ogre. The remains of Lucky Lance have been mounted on the spike, and given a helmet, shoulder pad and strap. I also bolstered the strap for the main shoulder pad, and (God help me) even sculpted a belt buckle.

I need to stop and call him done now, otherwise I could easily spend weeks and weeks adding further flourishes to my miniature murine masterpiece, and not actually end up with a usable team!

Looking good. How do you get those smooth sharp edges with the green stuff on the spikes?

Right, back on track with this team. Sadly, the ostentatious excess of plastic and greenstuff on my metal rat ogre did not prove very... sturdy. He lost a lot of his trappings when I dropped him a while back. So, I've gone back to basics and painted up a fella from Island of Blood instead.

Very nice, Birdman. This model is better than the other one that you had planned to use.

Have decided to prioritise the 2016 plastics, as my son has expressed a preference for them. The sooner we get these rolled out, the sooner he is happy to start attending tournaments with Dad!

Stormvermin done. Note the extra "bandage" on the tail of #2 - that's an ad-hoc green stuff repair after an unfortunate snapping incident. Bloody hell, these models are fragile! Let's hope they never get Knocked Down...

I really like the team, and I like the original scheme Birdman. I do fear that GW went a bit too far with form over function with these rats though, you might have to keep the glue handy on game night.

You might even use it to repair broken tails.

I love your work in here Birdman! :)

Though I must say I'm heartbroken the 'Giant Linerat' Rat Ogre broke... that was pure awesome! :)
