I am proud to present you one of my greatest treasures: Prince Rodrik's Band of Questing Knights Yes, you can trust your eyes. These are the original miniatures (well at least 6 of 8 ) from the Battle Report "The Folly of Prince Rodrik" from White Dwarf No. 305 (pages 34-47). I bought them directly from GW employee Andrew Hoare, who built and painted 4 of them. He put the knights on eBay in August 2011, but just listed them as "Unique painted and converted Bretonnian foot knights". I spotted and identified them as the original knights from the WD battle report. So I was quite lucky to get them. They are absolutely unique. Before you ask, I already tried to find out what happened to the other two knights. Here's the answer I got from Andy Hoare: Here is the page from White Dwarf 305 that shows them: Here are some more detailed pictures of each knight: Prince Rodrik: Eduard the Enviable: Pietre, Beloved of Yordane: Fabien the Sophist: Roland the Bold: Harold the Filthy:
This entry is basically just to give a couple of group shots of the 500pts. I don't think the 20 plague monks I just finished are going to win any beauty prizes. but I'm certainly pleased with the way the force is shaping up so far. I'm Excited about the next deadline. Which is to add another 500pts to the whole thing, and should be announced during Today's hand in. I think next on my list for this is Verminlord Corruptor Plague Furnace 8 Giant Rats or 2 chaos familiars which should be 500pts on the button adding to this lot for the full 1000. also considering adding a bunch of Nurgle demons if I add anything to go for 2000, maybe some plague toads. -=R286=-
it's no secret I'm a fan of Skaven. Recently, I became involved with a painters challenge at a local wargames club. This challenge has been an interesting way for me to get back into the swing of things in terms of painting, as I tend to have periods of inactivity between picking up a brush. The Idea behind the competition is simple enough, pick an army, build towards 1000pts in manageable blocks. score points on how much of it is painted per deadline. the first deadline caught me off guard, as I only really got involved when there were just under 2 weeks of the first deadline to go. owing to the fact they make up the largest chunk of my unpainted lead mountain, I chose clan Pestilens. The theme I chose was the early days of pestilence, during the great migration, when plaguelord Nurglich (the first) pushed his way into Lustria and the new world. That is before he got his tail handed to him by the lizard folk and their winged serpent god. for this theme, I decided I would make some Incan-inspired path bases. My first 300 points: Nurglich on great Pox rat (using the warscroll for Epidemus) 180pts 10 Plague Censer Bearers. 120pts I met the deadline, had everything based, everything painted and got 15points in the painters challenge, coming second to the person who got everything painted and won the best painted model\unit bonus. The next deadline is the 19th of June and the challenge is to add a further 200pts to our army. for this I have chosen: Fen Beast (Beast of Nurgle Warscroll) 60pts 20x Plague Priests 140 pts Wish me Luck.
