Cataloging the Collection: Skaven

Hi All,

Not a lot of progress on the Skaven Army to show you. What I have been doing is trying to identify and catalog what I currently have and add figures in what appear to be glaring holes in my collection.

I started off by trawling through catalog pages and White Dwarf adverts on solegends.com. Basically the first place I look when I want to figure out what a figure is. I stayed away from the CCM Wiki as I was pretty sure I didn't really have any rare figures.

Finally I stumbled upon a "Skaven collector's guide" by Tristram Evans that seemed to have all of the info collated together. I won't post a direct link as I don't want it to be pulled down. It shouldn't be too hard to find.

So, what do I have?

The Rat on the right.

 This one has 1985 stamped on the bottom.

2 of these, also stamped 1985

1 of these on its way

I'm pretty sure I have two of these, but I can't locate them.

 I have 32 of these. Some broken, missing a few shields and heads.

 Just one of these.
 14 of these. 

I have one on its way.

 6 of these.

4 of these.

7 of these.

1 of these. He was lonely without Boneripper.

1 of these.

1 of these. This is already painted and based. I'm not sure if I'll leave it as is or do something to match it to my style.

1 of these. Stamped 2001.

1 of these.

5 of these. These next guys all have the halberds mixed up.

7 of these.

1 of these.

2 of these.

2 of these as Standard bearers and another 5 of this model armed with Halberds.

So glaringly no Slaves, Jezzails, Wind Globes, Warp Fire Throwers or Plague Censer bearers. I also don't have any Packmasters or Rat Ogres, I'm working on that.

I also have the Isle of Blood set from the box that includes. 1 Skaven Warlord, 1 Skaven Warlock Engineer, 40 Skaven Clanrats, 1 Skaven Master Moulder (Painted but misplaced), 2 Skaven Rat Ogres (Painted. You saw them.),  1 Skaven Warp Fire Thrower, 1 Skaven Poison Wind Mortar. These are all plastics, but they look nice I think.

Kind of a long post, but it's helping me get my head around the collection.

Welcome to Matt Williamson and Jon Garrad.

Happy Hobbying.

  1. Phew. That's a lot of fur. I have a skaven bloodbowl team looking at me with beady metal eyes from a box to the side of the table. Now Deathmaster Skitch has arrived to proxy as Skitter Stab Stab I may have to succumb to the Horned God.

    1. Excellent Phil! The year of the rat is the perfect excuse to get them on the painting table. I look forward to seeing them someday.

  2. That's an amazing collection, minus the Jezzails, and other specialist types...
    Has this exercise helped? Have you adjusted your painting plan based on your thinking?

    1. Thanks Major, it;s hard to say if it has adjusted my painting plan. It does have the bonus of knowing what I actually have and I've been meaning to catalog my stuff and do a modified 100% painted project like Anthony Bo did. I think once I get a list made up it will help me plan better. Right now I've got a lot of real life kid drama to deal with so this has taken a back seat.
