I got really excited when I found a metal Ikit Claw for $10 at the LGS. Also picked up the new technical paints and Apoc Templates. Cannot refuse my daughter when she asks me to buy her dice, they are really cool and now I want some for my Tzeentch armies :)

I haven't, I'm excited to. Always did these things the old way, while I was waking 10 miles to school and back barefoot in 6 feet of snow uphill both ways.

All you need is a grey seer, a battle force or 2 or just some HPA's and doomwheels. The grey seer is a must though.

I've got a Doom Wheel and an HPA. I'm thinking about creating my own HPA as well. For some sick, sadistic reason I'd like to have a lot of overwhelming numbers this time. I'd also like Slaves with slings, yes they must have slings....'Ok I stand and shoot! Ok you win combat, they break and blow up in yo face!' is what I'd like to say.

As long as your grey seer and BSB are alive skaven slaves should never break, Ld10 rerollable and 12+ ranks on your average unit they will be there for the rest of the game.

Having tons of dudes is awesome though, I've got like 95 halberdiers plus another 35 ranged and cc state troops as detachments, add to that 35 greatswords (still need to get another box to make it 45). The best part about it all is they just die in droves, I'm taking off 10 dudes per turn on each halberd unit and about 6-7 on the greatswords. I just love sending all those little dudes to their untimely deaths.

I may actually use a Vermin Lord (shh don't tell the rest of the internet!). I bought the Forge World model as well as the Brood Horror. I've wanted to paint those since they came out. The Brood Horror will be an HPA though ;)

Last night, started clipping and building Stormvermin. I love them, I am lamenting selling the 40+ I had before. Now I need to go buy some...

Vermin lords aren't too terrible really, just try and keep them behind large pieces of terrain (and make sure there is enough terrain on the table, it really adds to fantasy, no matter what MWGmatt says). I'm just starting to use monsters myself, I'll have to see how the empire ones hold out.

My box of Skaven goodies came in, I'm actually excited to remove mold lines from rats! Some of these have some paint on them, and I think I'm going to do some test schemes on them.

All I've been doing is trimming mold lines, Stormvermin are done. There's a MotM I'd like to work on as well as Painting Deathmatch...but I figure I'll strike while the iron's hot and get these done as I normally hate removing mold lines.

Making another trade for a bunch more Skaven stuff ;) I need a Screaming Bell...

I've been building Skaven like crazy. I've got I don't know how much stuff built right now, just waiting for April to paint. I also bought a Warlord on Brood Horror and Exalted Vermin Lord from Forge World. I love those models, and been wanting them since they released. I had a bit of birthday and Xmas money, so I went for it ;)

I played Nids last Tuesday and came out with a win. I think the key is to overwhelm with targets, and don't make Synapse a weakness. I sorely need air support, so I think a Crone or two is needed. This wasn't an optimized list, I just used what I had really. The mission was Crusade, deployment Hammer and Anvil. In the end I had First Blood, Linebreaker, and 3 objectives.

Now I've got a pretty good start on a Daemons army, that I could use in conjunction with my CSM. I'm kinda thinking it's very similar, except I don't need to worry about Synapse when I play Daemons. I may decide to trade these off again.

I am getting ready to start on my son's tyranids. He likes to play and I like to paint. Seems to work.
