Ratling Cannon Fodder

Hi all

So onto the first part of my introduction of my Skaven BB team - the Gnash-Gnaw and as I did with the UUs, I'll introduce the line men...ahem line rats first!

 No backgrounds for these guys as yet, as not one of them has lasted long enough to level up! Yes the attrition rate of line rats is huge! Low AV and no outstanding qualities, line rats struggle to cope with bashy opponents and subsequently die in droves, but as an experienced skaven coach, I know this and factor it into my plans.  luckily they are as cheap as chips to buy...



These minis are all 2nd ed and that puts them in the 25+ years bracket and I've had them since then as well.  They, along with the 2nd ed game, have moved house (twice) survived living in my loft when I lost my wargaming mojo for several years and have been repainted 3 times! I do love these little critters... not enough to name them but still... Number 11 is the old kicker model but seeing as that position has been retired, he steps in with his giant armoured boot as a line rat.

hope you enjoy

ps as this post is a little light, I have been building a pitch for the Gnash-Gnaw! check out my You Tube channel to watch the build https://youtu.be/9Lfu4ReMJ5I

  2. Great looking line rats Andy, always liked the mutation chart when they got upgrades, if I was lucky enough to roll on it

  3. Ah I do like the older BB figures they are less `busy' than some sculpts now a days and have a sports uniform feeling about them.

    1. I feel the same way Phil. As pretty as the new GW sculpts are, I like less busy minis. Easier to paint by us lesser mortals and look cleaner. A lot of fantastic 3rd party minis out there that fit the bill and my next team will reflect that too.
