Haven’t seen this posted on the forum yet… some new Skaven stuff has been posted to GW’s website here.
It includes Skaven Battle Magic, Uniforms & Heraldry of the Skaven, some new character models (well, one of them is an updated Ikit Claw), Hellpit Abomination and the Doom-Flayer.
The Doom-Flayer is of particular interest as it looks like it could be a useful conversion piece for a CD army…
Hm, well, imo the Abomination is an abomination, the old Ikit Claw model was better, and the rest are underwhelming at best. I could certainly see the Doom-flayer being conversion material though!
tretch will make a good sneaky git hero with a new head and no tail, whilst i’m going to steal ikit’s hands to use on a demonsmith and his body for a khan of some kind.
i’ve seen that all on monday but forgot to post it… (saw it in store)
and if you give ikit a proper pask and a beard, he’d be a perfect deamonsmith(if you lose some of the incography)
I’m going to be ordering the HPA and ikit soon. Beautiful models.
I need to make some serious shopping in jan
I love it, that’ll make some mess in the ranks!
very nice Abomination. I particularly like the second painted pic, very nasty foe.
it really is a great time to be a ratman hehe
I need to place an order soon, many of the new minis are really great - and I’m working on a combined force of Chaos Dwarfs and Skaven.
I must say, I’m a little disappointed in the Plagueclaw.
But the Warplightning Cannon, is very cool - but I might gonna stay with my own conversion of the catapult.
The warp lightning cannon is my least favorite of the new models. it just has too much wood for my taste.
I’m looking at the one above and thinking its a nice start for a empire war alter.
I don’t know why I don’t like them, maybe it’s becouse eavy metal made a bad paintjob.

I agree, some of them you still need you imagination for. I kind of felt this way after seeing some of the initial Daemon Prince plastic models they had done.
On a related note, if anyone out there has a friend that picks up the Hellpit Abomination be sure to raid their bitz box (or trade) for a few of the bits and bobs like this boiler:
I like the doom flayer although I don’t think it’s much use in game.
The Ikit Claw figure is nice too.
Don’t really like the Abom. Looks like a fat Tyranid with a smoke stack.
ooooh, nice boiler, lets hope i gets some on bitzbox (but i doubt it)
