Well, that's not entirely true. I seem to have an affinity for Skaven. When I was a wee nipper, I found myself having been gifted a raggedy copy of Skavenslayer and well... I fell in love. Before I knew what S5 auto-hit Rattling Guns did and why people in my group cursed the name of Alessio for them, I fell for the antics of a rat named Thanquol. The pitch black parody of the worst parts of humanity, the hilarious broken English with the double noun-nouns and Thanquol's mental acrobatics that saw him emerge from every botched escapade free of all blame and smelling of roses.
I really like Skaven, you see? So with AoS, I saw an opportunity to step outside of my norm and get to grips with something fresh and new in a pristine system with limitless possi... Yeah, I'm doing Skaven again.
But where to start on the latest incarnation of my verminous horde?
It's got to be with the head honcho, the big cheese... the main man. No, not Lobo. I refer of course to the rat that Skitterlept from the pages of Gotrek and Felix all those years ago and kindled this life-long love affair with all things thirteeny. Thanquol.
That makes my first month fairly easy to budget:
Thanqoul & Boneripper (£47)
From there I just generally plan to bulk the months out with things I think would be fun to paint. I remember having a blast with the IoB Rat Ogres, so Month 2 may include Stormfiends. I haven't gotten my brushes round anything from the End Times yet, so they're looking like fore(gutter)runners. Skaven puns!
There you go then: I'm doing more rats. Sorry for being so predictable. And... end on a song.
