So, for the Brettonians, I had been thinking of painting each lance of Knights in the same color scheme, then John pointed me to the Templar Knights. I think would be a very easy color scheme to stick with and would look good on the board.

Okay the dip method is still my favorite method of painting.. I did my best to match the before and after pictures..
By clicking the image you'll see that while its not perfect post dip.. Its certainly good enough for the table top..

Yall are in trouble.. The new Skaven are going to be a lot of fun.. for me.. Less so for you guys.. heh
Actually the new book reads like they are moving back to what Skaven used to be (and what they should be).. They are now as much a danger to themselves as they are to others..
All of the new weapon teams have a pretty good chance of going "Foomph!" and taking out a large chunk of models.. yours or mine..
In fact just about everything in the army is written so that friend or foe can be affected by it.. Friendly fire is just a way of life in the Skaven and that is what made them fun previously.. I'm glad they are back to that..
The only rule/model in the whole army I really question is the Hellpit Abomination.. Either I'm missing something entirely or this thing is overpowered.. It really does read like something that got snuck into the book by mistake..
Not only does it not really "fit" with the feel of the army but it's also nutty powerful.. We shall see..
It also doesn't have a model.. Along with most of the other new things in the codex.. The new Doomwheel is very nice and was fun to paint.. (I am still pondering what to paint on the banner so I haven't done it yet.)
Note: Click the images to see the full size version..
It was fairly simple to assemble and there are a ton of bitz that could be used to build some of the other fun things in the army but not everything.. I'm very clearly going to have to get inventive if I want to field some of this stuff.. and I do want to..
It's likely going to be over a month before AB is updated with the latest Skaven codex so in the mean time I'm going to have to use a spreadsheet to create something..
Give me a week or two and I might actually have a playable army.. The real issue at this point is I have to completely repurpose ALL of my old models with the exception of my old style stormvermin and that's going to take time..
On the upside, my slave problem has been completely solved.

One thing I tend to forget when considering the Imerial Guard is that when we think of the countless billions that die everyday in the wars of the Imerium; regiments tossed into the meat grinder to take a nameless hill, the barely trained conscript given a lasgun from the fellow in front of him that just took a bolt round to the face, these are the "normal" Guardsmen of the Imerium, and for some reason, I always lumped the Cadians in there with these poor schlocks.
