I did it! After about two years of painting, my Skaven army is finally finished with the completion of my last unit of Clanrats. Ok, I still need to varnish those Clanrats, but nevermind. I’m so glad I’m done with painting (and individually highlighting) those pesky segmented rat tails… and also a bit proud I painted about 2500 points of a horde army.
Above you can see the command unit. I went for a rather basic freehand on the banner, it’s also a bit rushed but I just wanted to get these buggers done. Or reader Gary suggested a cropped design. Initally I was very fond of this idea, but after some trys on a bit of paper it just didn’t work out and my patience was limited.
What do you think?
Of course, pictures of the whole unit and of the whole army will follow soon, as well as some new and exciting projects from me, so stay tuned!

Shockingly I never had a game with the army, actually never a game of Fantasy at all. These days all of my limited hobby time goes to painting and collecting. But I keep all my models legal, so I wouldn't rule out that there comes the point when I explore the gaming part of the hobby, too.
Congrats 🙂 Now for the next 3 blocks 😀

Congratulations, Stahly. 2500 points is quite an accomplishment! I still like how the banner turned out, even if it isn't my design idea ;). The blocked-in clan symbol looks sharp.
