Gearing up my Skaven for the Campaign
I met with my gaming group last week to kick off our Warhammer campaign. We settled on the Border Princes map campaign from the General's Compendium. We've got six players, and the armies will be The Empire, Ogre Kingdoms, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, Orcs &Goblins, and my Skaven.
I'm going to use this blog to post updates as the campaign unfolds. We won't be starting until sometime in February but, in the meantime, we're all working to get our armies in shape.
I'm in the middle of a large terrain commission, so I haven't had much time to paint, but I've managed to work on my Doom Rocketeer in bits and pieces here and there, and he's finally ready to launch a volley of whistling death across the battlefield:
The rocket is one of the few bits of red in my Skaven army; I wanted the projectile to resemble a large firecracker. Since the Doomrocket fires a random distance, my strategy will be to run the model up the side of the battlefield and fire along the length of the enemy's battle line, maximizing the chance of it hitting something. We'll see how things play out when we finally get to gaming.
