revisiting the Fantasy chain of events... one rat at a time!
Do you get that feeling once in a while that some seemingly different events can lead to a chain effect and eventually lead you to get decisions that you wouldn't otherwise?
Don't get so serious all of a sudden, this blog won't change its subject to some philosophical rumbling of some sort ... but I just had to share the chain of events that lead to what seems to be my next model (or rather project) to come...
Firstly I have to say a great thanks to PapaJJ for his great Skaven (and ork) gift a couple of months ago, that really got me again on to thinking more out of my 40K box, more on this in future posts...
Secondly, last Saturday I decided to dig my Fantasy books and stuff and arrange a battle with a good friend of mine. Its been quite a while since the new edition hit the shelves but this would be only my 3rd battle with the new rules This would be a great 2000 pts one since the previous 3 were only 500pts test battles. Anyways, as you may have already known, I have quite a few Fantasy armies (including a massive Empire army and a large Tomb Kings force) but my big Fantasy love is the Skaven! There is a post somewhere around here that shows my old skool Doomwheel. So here I was, leaving my commission work for a while, digging out my Skaven Army Book making army lists ... and it was fun!
The next day I went to play the battle against my friend's daemons. I must say that I absolutely loved that game and I totally love the new rules! The result isn't that important, just the fact that it really got me into Fantasy stuff again and that I killed my third BloodThirster in 2 different game systems in 2 weeks time :P :P
Last but definately not least ... was this :
That was it... next thing I knew, I was hanging in my closet trying to find that order I did back then when the Skaven Army book was out!
Oh yes, the vermin tide is coming... and it will be nasty!! XD
