Richard Rush's Skaven - Ratputin Marches

Page history last edited by Rushputin 12 years, 8 months ago

Winter 2009 Fantasy Escalation League

 

Despite playing around with Skaven for something approaching 15 years, I've only just now actually started playing Warhammer Fantasy.  So, the Escalation League's going to give me a great chance to learn both my army and the game.

 

I've got an offensive number of rats, but am a pretty slow painter.  Even though the hobby side of things is really what brings me to the table, I honestly have no expectation of being able to be fully painted for a single week of the league.  That's a shame, but I don't think it can be helped.

 

I've been maintaining a gallery of pictures of painted units, though most of them were painted back in 2006.  This, of course, will change during the league.  The gallery can be found here.

Holy crap, is that 100 rats? Where is the exterminator?

As I have never played against Skaven, I am definitely looking forward to getting in a game!

Holy crap, yeah, I guess it is.

Problem is, those 40 slaves are unpainted. :( So are the 5 Jezzails, but *those* I think I could get done before late January. :)

Richard, I edited you page a bit because there was a formatting error with the last paragraph wrapping the first line of text to the right of the table. I added a span two cell to the bottom of the table and move the text into it as a quick fix to the problem.

Also, I think it would be a crime not to march to war with at least one unit of slaves. They are so cheap and can be so helpful in screening and tying up all manner of enemy troops.

Also you custom title look good. Where are you getting you pictures? Are they scans from the codex or from some other source?

Thanks; I thought I'd fixed it. Must not have.

Slaves haven't done a whole lot for me yet. Probably still learning how to use them, I'm sure. The real problem with them is that I kinda need to paint them, and that ain't happening.

The images are from some Age of Reckoning and Mark of Chaos sites I've come across.

Your statistic stuff is a cool Idea, I might have to add some of that in to my page. Question though, what is the "Drops" column for?

How many "drops" I have during deployment. Your Week 3 list, for example, has seven: characters (1), warriors (2), marauders (3,4,5), marauder horsemen (6) and knights (7).

Your statistics block looks great, consider it nabbed and copied!

You had a comma issue in your Week-by-week statistics...I fixed it (22,00 changed to 2,200).
