  1. Now with correct name!! Here’s the new thread for our AoS 2 Battletome. Again, Skaven-speak optional but welcome. Old mini archive: https://www.scribd.com/document/325855280/Skaven-Collector-s-Guide-Revised-Updated?campaign=SkimbitLtd&ad_group=11082X693941Xef7d298153c11b726594c93933bff296&keyword=660149026&source=hp_affiliate&medium=affiliate
  2. Here is the new thread for discussing Clan Skyre. With the imminent release of AoS 2 (and a lot of the info already being out there), now is the time for us to start afresh on TGA. Moving forward, this will be the main thread to chat about and discuss Clan Skyre in the new edition. I still wholly encourage people to keep their own threads/army blogs within this sub forum and I also think those are a great place to share some photos as I know not everyone frequents the Painting & Modelling section. But this thread is purely for discussion around the faction, things such as (but not limited to) tactics and list building etc. You all know the drill, we've been doing it on this forum since inception! For newer players, I would say the older thread could still be worth perusal and whilst it is now locked for further replies, you can find it here - http://www.tga.community/forums/topic/11269-let´s-talk-skyre/ Really excited to see what we can come up with as a community and I look forward to reading all your ideas and thoughts.

  5. Clan Prepnik marched out of its aqshian farm to raid and plunder Idoneth Deepkin fishes... Was defeated and fled back to its farm quick-quick! I did a 2000-point battle against Idoneth Deepkin today. This was my army (one WLC missing in the picture): The list was: Including fresh recruits from Clan Skryre A warlock bombardier converted from a Spire of Dawn warpfire thrower kit: SPELLS, ALL THE SPELLS FOR BOULDRAK YES-YES And of course some humble farming rats devoted to Clan Prepnik The opponent was Idoneth Deepkin. His list was more of less the following: The Skaven troops are boxed in a metal box and the spells in a small shoe box. All 2000points in a backpack! THE BATTLE BEGINS The scenario is Shifting Objectives, the first main objective lands on the far right of the picture, and Idoneth gets the first turn Turn 1 - Fish The whole army runs for the objectives. They do some shooting and kill 2 clanrats on the far left, and 6 on the far right. End of turn, Idoneth controls all 3 objectifs and scores 5 points Turn 1 - The Mighty Skaven Horde of the Magnificient Grey Seer Bouldrak Grey Seer Bouldrak is ready to unleash some cunning tricks on the clueless fishes. The plan is to Skitterleap the Arch-Warlock against his will in the middle of a Akhelian Corps to dump a Balewind Vortex and Soulsnare Shackles before scurrying away through a Gnawhole. Grey Seer Bouldrak rolls a double 1 on Skitterleap. He manages to get on top of a Balewind Vortes though, which is next to useless. Shooting phase: An overcharged WLC deals 4 damage to the Eidolon (down to 12 life), but 4 damage to itself too. The other WLC damages an Allopex. Oh boy that Idoneth rule that only the closest unit can be targetted is complicating placement! The Stormfiends get boosted with Vigourdust Injector, Deranged Inventor and a Warpstone Spark and wipe an Allopex. Movement phase: Bouldrak can't let the objectives go away! He sends two units of clanrats to a certain death to claim some points! 20 clanrats charge the main objective to score 3 points, and 20 other clanrats charge the Eidolon to score 1 more point: End of turn: 4 points for me and 5 for the Idoneth. I get to start turn 2!!! The main objective remains the same (far right) --- Turn 2 - The Mighty Skaven Horde of the Magnificient Grey Seer Bouldrak Grey Seer Bouldrak is now ready to unleash the cunning combo of skitterleaping the Arch-Warlock on top of the main objective to lock the Akhelian Corp. Grey Seer Bouldrak fails miserably with a 1 and 2. Note to self: Consume warpstone tokens to make the combo work, even if it means dying! There is absolutely no spell to range. I can't cast anything besides a shield on the bombardier and a mystic shield. Shooting phase: Stormfiends receive vigordust, deranged inventor and a spark again. They send the Eidolon back to the very bottom of the abyss with 17 damage despite the save, the ward save, and the boat wreckage ward save. Sidenote: The Eidolon was named Alain Deleau (translation: Alain From the Water) due to his ressemblance to French actor Alain Delon A cannon cleans the other Allopex, making the left flank totally empty and the objective secure. On the far right, clanrats get wiped so the main objective goes back to the Idoneth. 1 more point for me. Total of 5 for me and 5 for Idoneth. Turn 2 - Fish The Idoneth leaves the central and right objectives (secured already) and rush Grey Seer Bouldrak on his vortex, the 20 clanrats in the center and the 15 Acolytes (who did not do anything since the beginning) Note to self: Use the acolytes! But the Stormfiends were better positioned so they received all the buffs. The Acolytes movement is cool (run and shoot) but it was not enough to threaten the Idoneth. Grey Seer Bouldrak dies escapes through a Gnawhole back to his farm 19 clanrats die! Not 20 but 19!!!! 3 Acolytes die. I decide to use the arch-warlock CP (left on the picture) to save the single clanrat instead of the Acolytes for some cunning plan!!! Wait-see! 4 points more for Idoneth, for a total of 9. I get to start the third turn! The objective again stays on the far right... --- Turn 3 - The Mighty Skaven Horde of the Magnificient Grey Seer Bouldrak The Arch-Warlock casts Warp Lightning Vortex on top of the Akhelian Corps, but it is too late in the game to make a large impact... Here comes the cunning plan! Which I realized later on that in fact it was not supposed to work... The single rat that was saved Turn 2 is 6'' from the gnawhole. The Arch-Warlock is 11'' from the Gnawhole. I spend another command point to run to the gnawhole, and teleports the single rat on top of the unattended main objective to score 3 points. But later on I realized this was not supposed to work because of the Gnawhole teleporting is for the beginning of the movement phase... My mistake Shooting phase: The stormfiends wipe the 20 thralls and the Souldrender. The WLC wipe 3 Ishlaen Guards. Looking good! I score 4 points for a total of 9. Turn 3 - Fish Idoneth has a Leviadon, a Tidecaster and 3 Ishlaen Guards left. The boosted Leviadon rushes the Stormfiends and kills 4 of them! Misery! With no hero nearby, the 2 other run away... The arch-warlock dies. The Tidecaster charges and kills the single clanrat that was securing the main objective. End of turn, 4 more points for the Idoneth, for a total of 13. I am left with 2 WLC, a warlock bombardier, and 6 Acolytes. We decide to stop there. The WLC don't have enough movement to secure objectives. The Acolytes are locked into combat with an Ishlaen Guard. There was no way I could win on points, even if I somehow got a triple turn and wiped the Idoneth player. Summary The battle was very close and tense. Each turn saw some big and important units being wiped on each side. Despite the double turn, Idoneth getting the first turn and the first 5 points really got me in a bad position. I had to do several suicide moves to catch up on points. My army lacks mobility. I don't feel the Acolytes and Gnawholes are enough. Gnawholes were locked by the Idoneth player anyway. On the other hand, Idoneth had plenty of mobility. I need to get either a Doomwheel or a Warp Grinder team. Stormfiends were absolute beasts! What really did the difference was their huge survivability. They managed to wipe an Eidolon, 2 Allopexes, 20 thralls and a Soulrender before losing a single model! As a consequence, I babysitted them heavily instead of the Acolytes, thereby making the Acolytes quite subpar. The problem with the Acolytes is that they cannot survive a charge. They can wipe a single unit but then have to pray for not being charged back by another unit nearby. On the other hand, the stormfiends can stay in the center and absorb the hits (as long as they can be immuned to battleshock). I'm considering adding 3 more stormfiends for a total of 9 and a warp grinder instead of the 15 acolytes. But I'm still hesitating... I need to take more risks with magic. Failing Skitterleap twice made my endless spells useless. Next time I will make the grey seer consume warp tokens to make sure the spell gets through. I feel it is crucial to at least have a chance to land a WLV or shackles early. I think I will have the opportunity to take revenge next week. Any idea about what to change in terms of units or strategy? Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the battle report. I don't get much opportunities to play unfortunately, as I live very far from any player group or GW shop. I spend much time theorycrafting and painting but not much actually playing. My strategy and placement still need improving... Cheers
  6. As I just recently did get a copy of Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire, but really didn't like nor wanted to paint Garreks Reavers … aaand as I like the Idea of Khorne worshipping Skaven, I just hat to convert the whole Band. The heads are all from Stormvermin, and replacing them was mostly pretty easy except for "Blooded Saek", the guy with the Axe over his head. Most of the swords are from the Sicarian Ruststalkers, as they are within most part of my army. Really looking forward to paint the big guys. And I'm curious, how they'll look within the army. Not sure, wether I play them as Garreks Reavers or just as Company Champions …
  7. And Spiteclaws Swarm. Again with Ruststalker Blades, and Bits from Stromcasts. My first Project with Contrastpaints. All is contrast paints, except the white, the gold and the silver. Actually a few things about painting with contrast paints are even better than Games Workshop told us … It's much much easier to remove the colour from the brushes, making it much easier and faster to switch between colours during painting. The consistancy of the colours makes thinning them down unneccessary, which speeds up the process even further.
  8. Spiteclaws Swarm from Wahrammer Underworlds, with a few minor conversions. Mostly painted with Contrast Paint, except White, Gold and Silver.
  9. Continuing with Age of Sigmar Skirmish, I wanted to try some more hard hitting Units. So I painted the first of my four Ratogres, of course in the same "troll slayer orange", white, gold and red Colour Scheme. His Name is Louiiss, Prince of the Sun. And I am pretty happy how well the Stormcast Shoulderpads fit. The second addition to the Marls revoluthing Army was a Warp Flamethrower Team …
  10. Hey guys! Realized I should probably post my batreps that I've been making. I play Skaven, Gloomspite and LoN. I've been making a habit of doing overhead time lapse videos of my games and doing commentary with my opponents afterwards. It's been a ton of fun and I really think it's made me a better player for having to go back and analyze my gameplay. Fair warning, it isn't a traditional batrep style where we show dice rolls or anything, they're usually 30min and just an overview of how the game went, what worked or didn't work, and what we might've changed in hindsight. I'll post my batreps on this thread, hope y'all like them!

  12. So I bought the pestilens starter box with the intention of mixing it up with a bit from all the other clans. It seems that I cant do this because of the battleline rules according to the warscroll builder. Which is strange because the fluff says that the armies more often than not mix in battle. So according to what i've been doing on warscroll I'd have to take 3 units of clan rats as battleline in order to mix the clans. Is this right?? Tom
  13. Finished my 2k Skryre army done, been fun doing a skaven army with only 30 models! Will get the gnawholes and endless spells next. All C&C welcome.
  14. I have decided not to start FEC as I originally intended and am going full on Skaven so Id like to trade my Carrion empire FEC Half for a Carrion Empire Skaven half. I am in London, UK and want to keep it UK only to save on postage. I am fine with meeting locally (or Darksphere/barhammer) if you also live in London. EDIT: I also have 3 Crypt Horrors/Flayers + 10 Ghouls from the Start Collecting box (+Warscroll Battalion rules sheet) that I can trade along with this if you have any more Skaven or Seraphon/LoN
  15. Hi and welcome. I'm Russ and I work in miniatures design for tabletop, rpg and boardgames. I've been working in the industry for seven years and I am currently the studio lead for a UK based minis and boardgame producer. I'm also a big hobbyist, and I am currently working on a new Skaven army for AoS. However, let's be honest, some of the minis in that range are less than ideal. I fact I remember selling a few of them when I worked at GW myself. And I left in 1999... So, to make my awesome new Skryre list look as good as I can, I'm harnessing my experience in minis design, and my new 3d printer, to update and modernise my list using current plastic kits as a basis, and creating parts to turn them into whatever I need. I'm going to blog this on here and on my gmsibg group page as I thought the process might be interesting, as it'll show a lot of the stuff that happens behind the curtain with minis manufacturing. And it will hopefully lead to some cool pictures of skaven bad asses. To begin! My skryre list is not totally locked but I've immediately identified the issues with acolytes and jezzails as my first target. For both, I'm going to use storm vermin as the torso bases and create arms, heads and accessories to change them up. My initial work is shown below... I aim to have the complete kit done in the next few days.. And on Thursday I'm setting up the new 3d printer I just bought! I'll detail that too, in case anyone else is thinking about getting one! Until Wednesday...
  16. This is a collection of projects, which I partly started since 2017, but didn't do much since. Partly they are opponents of other projects. The first post is a collection of the lists. Later a short review of the years 2017 and 2018 will follow. Skaven (Clan Machi) Nurgle Darkoath Khorne Slaanesh
