The rest of the Skaven in the Island of Blood set are almost complete. Only the Chieften / Warlord figure remains to be completed, so I’ll post some photographs of the others.
First up we have the Engineer. A great figure, with lots of lovely equipment.
Sadly none of it is the sort of equipment players give their Skaven Engineers these days, but the same is true of the old metal engineers.
Here are a couple I painted at the same time to compare.
And a side by side comparison . . .
I just wish they did one with items that could pass for Doom Rockets and Brass Orbs.
Also in the boxed set are two lovely weapon teams. A Plague Wind Mortar and a Warpfire Thrower.
I also painted an old Warpfire Thrower for comparison. As you can see it’s not too bad a match, although it has a “chunkier” look and feel to it.
Also painted at the same time was a old metal Ratling Gun. Pictured here side by side with the Island of Blood teams. Again a pretty good match in both size and style.
OK, I think this post is long enough as is. The Rat Ogres and Packmaster can wait for my next update.
These figures bring my 2010 totals to:
Obtained: 611 [No change]
