Clan Kraven's additions

I have made a bit of progress on my rats.  Firstly, I based all of the old figures I had painted years ago.  I find it quite striking the difference that a bit of sand and static grass can make.  I would say they almost look presentable, lol.  The basing job for most of them was quite simple - glue some sand, paint it brown/grey shades, glue on some yellow/dead grass.  A few if them had some other bits added - broken balsa wood, hirst arts ruined bricks. 

My assassin adept got a bit better treatment though.  I used a hirst arts barrel, and pinned him in a jumping pose from the barrel.  It looks more assassin-esque if you ask me. I just hope my mordheim opponents don't insist that he can't hide behind a low barrier now!

In addition to this, my wizard's spell is "Children of the Horned Rat" which grants up to 3 giant rats to your team at the start of the battle.  I figured this warranted painting up a few giant rats, as they will be included in each match.  I chose to paint mine in a white scheme, since they are "magical"


Next up, my warband has played a few battles and accumulated a few coins, so now they can afford a fearsome rat ogre!  This guy is still a WIP - some more highlights are required, and the basing is not yet finished.  Nevertheless, I am pleased with him thus far:

I hope you enjoy them!  Gaming night is tomorrow, so I look forward to trying out the big beastie.

Yet more Samurai Goblins

Another batch of the magnificent Bob Olley's samurai goblins!  I finished these a while ago, but it took me a while to get the camera out for some pictures.  I have taken a bit of a break from the samurai scheme to focus on some more Mordheim rats, which I will post later.

But first, onto the gobbos!

And a couple individual shots:

Once again, loads of fun to paint.  These figures might be over 15 years old, but they still look great.
