Realm of Chaos – Skaven Champion of Khorne (and follower!)

Back in the olden days, when I was just a pup, I played a bit of the Chaos Warbands variant of WHFB. My very first champion was a Skaven. Since at that time I had a Skaven army (which I later sold, keeping only a few figures) I did manage to pluck out an appropriate figure for use, with the sword, dagger, and a crest of evil-looking spines. This guy had a very, very old paintjob, and so I’ve gone over most of it as well as rebasing him. The biggest changes were reversing the colours on his Skaven-style lorica segmentata, and a repaint over his clothing in order to brighten it a little, and getting rid of his yellow pouch.

I don’t remember the story behind his little mate, but I do remember having Khorne in mind when I painted up his shield, so I figure he can stand in for now as a follower of the first guy. he just needed as bit of a touch-up and tone down to bring him up to scratch.

For the time being, I’m still a long way off building and painting my Skaven army, which will see the field under the Kings of War “Ratkin” list in the future. Until then, the odd Skaven that I may paint will be dropped into either my “Chaos” Army with my Realm of Chaos beastmen, or my “Beastmen” Army for any “cleaner” looking Skaven.

    • Just seemed the way to go for a Khornate Rat. 🙂 Just a shame that the ornate Khornate rune on his tabard looks like a blurry mess in the photo. Ah well, can’t win ’em all.
