Screaming Bell / Plague Furnace Base

The biggest chunk of the Screaming Bell and Plague Furnace is finally done! I managed to finish painting the base assembly today. The Plague Priest, crew and Furnace are the next pieces to tackle since they're the ones I'm using the most in the challenge league. With any luck I might actually get them done by next weekend.

The Horde is Nearly Amassed

I realised yesterday that I've got 40 Giant Rats simply by taking the ones from the Plague Monk and Doomwheel boxes. Each of the Plague Monk boxes has 16 and the Doomwheel has another 8, so all I needed to do was pick up some extra bases from the store and start gluing. With the exception of my Night Runners and Gutter Runners, everything is assembled and primed. Here's how my horde looks right now:

Models completed:

  • 20 Clan Rats
  • 1 Doomwheel

Models left to assemble:

  • 40 Night Runners / Gutter Runners

Models left to paint:

  • 1 Lord Skrolk
  • 1 Ikit Claw
  • 1 Queek Headtaker
  • 1 Grey Seer
  • 2 Warlords
  • 1 Plague Furnace/Screaming Bell and crew
  • 2 Engineers
  • 100 Clan Rats
  • 40 Stormvermin
  • 40 Giant Rats
  • 2 Ratling Guns
  • 2 Poison Wind Mortars
  • 2 Warpfire Throwers
  • 10 Poison Wind Globadiers
  • 20 Plague Monks
  • 20 Plague Censer Bearers
  • 5 Jezzails
  • 6 Rat Ogres
  • 3 Pack Masters
  • 1 Hell Pit Abomination
  • 1 Warp Lightning Cannon

The idea with the Clan Rats is the have them interchangeable as Clan Rats and Skavenslaves. They'll be 3 blocks of 40 with each block of 3 different colours. One unit of 40 is entirely spears, the others are a mix of 20 spears and 20 hand weapons, using the front few ranks to show their weapon selection. Since I'm on vacation for the next 9 days, my goal is to get the Screaming Bell/Plague Furnace done and hopefully a few other bits. With Civilization V coming out on Tuesday, I'm thinking most of my time is going to be spent on that while the rest is at the store putting in some games for the challenge league. With any luck my new case will arrive next week so I can stop carrying the larger models loosely.

Doomwheel

I had started to paint some of my Skavenslaves, but the Doomwheel was just begging to be painted. I finally caved and got it done over a weekend. Here's the final result.
