In perusing the Skaven codex (and before I had that, 4chan) I came to like the idea of a war litter to carry my Skaven Lord into battle. On a google search, I found one right on GW's website that was to my liking and used that as a basis for my own war litter. Thus I picked up the Stormvermin bitz and most of an Orc chariot via ebay, and Neverness generously donated a pair of wheels to my cause (prices for those on ebay are ridiculous), and here it is thus far:
|As you can see, I started base coating it last night. Looks like they're making it out of scrap wood scavenged from all over...|
|My Lord riding inside, though I have more characters than I can reasonably fit into a list, so I'll have options on who will be riding this to war.|
|I had to add 'wings' to the 40mm base for the storm vermin, which ought to add to the usual ranking up issues the game invariably creates...|
Having perused the army book for a bit now I made up a list of my current forces, and they clocked in at 1250 points which is what I was aiming for. I could raise it higher, but like my Stirlanders, I would just be adding characters to the list which isn't too appealing. About the only thing I really want right now is Stormvermin, and maybe some jezzails...but that's it. In adding those I can fold the clanrats with hand weapons into the slaves which will free up some points to maybe only raise the army total up to 1500 or so.
However for now, there will be no more purchases for the army (movement trays, magnetic sheeting and washers aside), rather I just need to continue on with the assembly of my horde.
