So, I'm back from a long time away. I've decided to start a new Skaven army. My second one in two years. My last army can be seen here - http://s6.zetaboards.com/The_UnderEmpir ... 8808988/1/ and this time around I have changed the basing, added some different colours and will be more conversions and unit fillers. I have written some fluff and painted my first model which will be used as a Warlord. I'm still awaiting my mountain of plastic Sprues to arrive.

Clan Variskikk
Clan Variskikk specialise in blending dark sorcery and arcane technology. Long been in the shadow of the predominant Clan Skyre, they have made a name for themselves and continue to build and sell to other smaller clans.

The clever Warlock Engineers of Clan Variskikk are ever busy creating experimental new weapons and continually tinkering with previous designs of their deadly arsenal. Event the clans Hell Pit Abomination has been bred with technology, science e and sorcery (and don't forget Warpstone) to create a truly disgusting and terrifying weapon.

Grey Seer Variskikk himself is a powerful sorcerer, able the channel the raw magical energies in the air and use it for destruction. Whilst his clan has expanded in size, so has his wealth. With this he has hordes of slaves at his disposal and will ever enter battle riding atop his Screaming Bell pushed by the finest Stormvermin. As Variskikk's reputation has spread far and wide, he has gained enemies in both the Underempire and above ground. In his later years, Variskikk has grown extremely paranoid and now never leaves the side of his hired swords. Two Assassin mercenaries from Clan Eshin. Many Warlords and Chieftains have tried to overturn Variskikk but have been quickly executed by these elite killers.

Hey there.

I just read through the last thread for you previous skaven army, and unless you have somehow got alot worse, this next one should be very impressive!

Can't wait to see more of your stuff Go go!

Never worry. Worst case scenario you die, and then there was no point worrying anyways.

Yeah the last one was fun to do! Needed it done quick for tournaments. Next up will a Doomflayer with a custom base insert so I can use it as a Doomflayer or as unit filler replacing 6 models :)
I've undercoated the Doom Flayer and taken another picture of the Warlord. Some reinforcements arrived this morning, so I proceeded to making 3 Warlock Engineers, an Assassin and two Rat Swarms. The Doom Rocket Engineer is a further adjustment on my original conversion for my first army. Took a bit more work mind you!

That custom base insert is pure genius, consider that idea stolen :bow:

Ork tech matches skaven so well, I will defiantly have to remember that when I get round to doing my twin barrel wlc.

Yeah the base insert is really cool. Means I can use the really cool model as a unit filler or as its actually intention.

Cheers, it's infact my third doom rocket engineer. Boy I wish I could take 3!
