I'm super excited since today Gw released images of the sexy new Skaven models!! They are so seriously awesome that I can't believe it! They are just like how the background and artwork describes them. These are all straight off of the New Releases and the sprues are from their blog.
Assorted Clanrat and Doomwheel sprues!! That's right! It's Back!!! I can't wait to see these guys in the flesh (or fur) and get cracking on them whether they are mine or not! :D I just hope the boys at Gw don't get a jump on them before I get there first!
The new clan rats we saw a peek of earlier in the year. They come 20 in a box rather than the current empire boxes of ten, I assume this is since Skaven armies require a horde army in the truest sense of the word.
The old school shields are back! These models are just wow! It's such a huge step up from the previous Skaven models and to me are what Skaven are all about; filthy, vicious warriors born in legions just to fight and bring down the empires and cities of man.....
New Stormvermin!! Again 20 in a box and they look awesome! I really like the head stretched into a drum skin and the Fangleader detail is really nice! These will really be a must have unit now!
The reinvented Doomwheel!!! You can't keep a good mad rat scientist down! The engineer is now riding the doomwheel from the inside and he has what looks like a technician riding on a rear platform. The banner is a pretty impressive piece of kit also.
The sprues are getting really impressive these days, especially the inner rings. Very steampunk in style.
I'll need one or two of these ramshackle contraptions rumbling along the battlefield blasting anything silly enough to come near it.
