Skaven

More elements added using left over figures from first time around:
2xClan Rat Hordes;
2xJezzail Shooters;
Gutter Runner Warband;

Bit of a disaster with these; after spending ages on them, matt sprayed them on a humid day and lo and behold, cloudy varnish! As the paint job is protected by a coating of Johnson’s ‘Klear’ it wasn’t a reaction with the paint or wash used. "Oh bother" I said. Thought 24 hours in a warm airing cupboard might do some good. Nope, didn’t. Absolutely unwilling to repaint them, did a touch up as far as I could. After all they are rats, so wouldn't be pristine, would they?

Pictsies

The idea and name for these came from 'The Wee Free Men' by the late Sir Terry Pratchett. GW goblins were ideal as they fitted the anarchic style of the Wee Free Men. However, it couldn't be just another goblin army. So blue instead of green and themed. It became a bit of an obsession, so ended up way over the top in numbers. Anyway, here they be och aye the noo:
