As part of our Tamworth Games Clubs “tale of” event I am currently building a Skaven army. I say building, but its built – one hundred plus grey plastic models glued together (for the most part) to practice the Skaven game plan.
Many of you may have received todays Forge World newsletter (always as they are, a herald of over spending). Of interest to our American cousins will the free shipping ANYWHERE in the world over Ã‚Â£150 offer now in place, so it might be worth chucking in those bulk orders while you have the chance.
Annnndd. … a shiney new vehicle for the Imperial Guard!

Foremost among the new toys available for the hordes of Skaven this year was the Hellpit Abomination.
Created by Clan Moulders most talented things catcher, Throt the Unclean, the Abomination is described as “A living mountain of misshapen flesh”.
Throt captured a blind wyrm whilst travelling throughout the Chaos wastes, and sutured Rat Ogre parts to create this monstrosity.
Neil has done a great job in the last couple of weeks, really holding the torch alone for Warhammer Fantasy on this new venture. Lets face it, is a mainly warhammer 30,000 affair at the moment.
