little plastic unpainted faces

No, not a sermon on the devilry of over-used plastic surgery but a few thoughts on that other scourge of our times… Warhammer!

I had a long term strategy where I wouldn’t use any model that wasn’t fully painted. Problem is my painting speed is glacial. So I have a number of boxes of wee plastic men who haven’t seen any tactical game action.

The last few games, however, I’ve brought out a few tanks that aren’t quite finished. Then a squad that haven’t seen anything other than undercoat.

And that got me thinking, why am I doing this to myself?

This week I’m going to unbox as much as possible and glue it up so that it’s usable for a game. I wonder how much I’ll have ready by the end of the week?

I’ve had these little plastic ratmen for years. Unpainted. Their sad little ratty faces looking at the insides of their box.

(This is a Warhammer thing.)

After years of not painting them, finally, FINALLY, Project Skaven has begun.

I really have no idea how many little plastic humanoid ratmen I have. Over a hundred? Maybe. In an attempt to clear though some outstanding painting tasks I have finally committed to painting them up.

And the first one, hot off the production line is this guy…

The Warp Lightning Cannon.

I shall not apologise for the crap camera on my phone, or my lack of ability while using it.
