    Yeah I mistakenly thought Ghostly Guard was also a Shield Enchantment. As Moe said, bigger issue is the weapon option.

    Interesting to see MSU rats performing well, and that looks like a fun list. How did he run net of Deception with Paired Weapon/Tail Weapon on the Tyrant? It’s a Shield Enchantment, and even if he was equipped with one the item specifically says “while using this shield”. Edit: Also Net of Deception and Ghostly Guard are both armor enchantments. You sure he had the net? @Fleshbeast, because the Aquila of Ruin isn’t 0-3 like the BoTES, meaning it’s One of a Kind. Anyway I feel PB are the only cor…

    You’re all right, of course. I’ll dump the extra characters and go for broke. I’m at 502 wounds at 7k. Should be a glorious sight to behold: Vermin Daemon Tyrant, Doomblade, HA, Shield Chief, BSB, Scepter of Vermin Valor, Banner of the Endless Swarm Assassin, Titanic Might 10 Footpads 10 Footpads 48 Plague Brotherhood, Full Command 48 Plague Brotherhood, Full Command 50 Slaves 50 Slaves 50 Slaves 50 Slaves 58 Clanrats, Spears, Full Command, Aquila of Ruin 47 Vermin Guard, Full Command, Banner of…

    Do you guys think 350 rats is sufficient for a 7000 point list? Asking for a friend.

    Yep, it’ll be a wild ride for sure, but I can’t change it until he dies. My plan is just to never lose combat so his Ld won’t matter anyway.

    He’s definitely expensive, but considering that I’d already be spending 500 points on a 5 spell/5+ aegis Magister, that I value Divination more highly than Witchcraft and Thaum, and that (in a normal game where he’s the general) his 18” Ld9 bubble is easily worth 100+ points, it’s easier to justify the remaining points for the rest of his stat line. I reckon he’ll also be extremely dangerous in combats (and potentially safer, since he can’t get shot) supporting the RAA, where I’m less fearful of…

    Will let you know. Game will probably be today or tomorrow. No magic/no shooting would be an impressive feat. Right now magic augments and hexes are the only things I feel make the list viable, but I’ll see how I feel after a few 4500 point games. By the end of the campaign we’ll have escalated to a whopping 7,000 points, which will allow me to field a truly hilarious number of rats.

    Amazing terrain pieces. Very thematic and atmospheric, not to mention beautifully painted. Though I confess they’re so artfully done that I’d be afraid to move units through them!

    Yeah very cool. Love the cold, wasteland-looking base work.

  • Love the old school look with the flock and light green base edges. Reminds me of all the army pictures I’d fawn over in the 5th and 6th edition White Dwarf magazines. Nice, clean painting.

    Yeah the kitbash with this Carstein Shields looks amazing. Fantastic work as ever!

    I have to keep Tyrant because of the escalation league rules. Believe me in a competitive environment I’d be jumping at the 18” ld9 bubble for my disciples and hulks in particular.

    Yep, the slaves run interference. They absorbed the initial charge of the Gnashers while the rat at arms could get into place, and will do the same thing with big scary units like monsters that only certain units in the army can handle up close. Titanic Might is absolutely disgusting on the assassin, it’s like the weapon was designed for his inherent AP4. With 2’s and 2’s to hit and wound most RAF Infantry he’s usually good for another 4 wounds on top of that static res of 7 before anything else…

    Been toying with body-heavy lists that involve almost no shooting as part of a UB escalation league our gaming group has been running. Here’s what I ran at 3500 points last week: Tyrant, General, HA, Shield, Willows Ward, Doom Blade Chief, BSB, HA, Scepter of Vermin Valor, Banner of the Endless Swarm, Seal of House Underminer Assassin, Titanic Might Plague Patriarch, Plague Flail Plague Patriarch, Plague Flail 10 Footpads 10 Footpads 60 Clanrats, Full Command, Spears, Aquila of Ruin 50 Vermin Gu…

  • Surely one of gaming’s highest honors!

  • Thanks, I really appreciate the kind words. It’s probably too hard to tell from the photos but the shield on the far left is actually off-white and dark green - I paint the light areas in about a 50:50 mix of Rakarth Flesh and white, which made the highlight easier. The actual white bits on the other shields are just pure white applied in about 5 thin layers, which leaves a few patches of darkness that begin the weathering process. You can make it out best on this guy: ayz8JWu.jpg From there for…

  • Took a crack at some free hand shields: iWE1co2.jpg In assuming that they’ll be run as warriors in most competitive environments I realize that these huscarls will probably stand in as regular Warriors, and there’s something motivating about making any kind of progress on 20-something point infantry models. Which is refreshing because, by contrast, I also have the soul-crushing marathon that is painting an army of yellow rats... 5NftkYQ.jpg

  • Yeah so this is going to be awesome.

  • This started as a color test between Viking models but I ended up digging the result. Just need to finish the bases - I think I’ll reign in the amount of yellow a bit with future models but I admit I like it as a unifying color: 6Ecocgd.jpg
