First up we have the Plague Catapult. What could make a catapult better? How about slinging some rotting remains and plague goo at your enemies! Fun for all ages and historically horrifying to boot!
|This plague goo ain't gonna shovel itself!|
|Old ratty half skull knows a thing or two about contagion.|
But why be content with just standing back and slinging plague and contagion at your enemies when you can roll right up and start slinging it around on a giant rusty death trap full of crazed plague addled fanatics?! Get the latest and greatest in putrescence with this thing!
Clever rat-like viewers will notice the Plague Priest is missing from the front of this engine of war and that is intentional. I put him on a base so he can run around with his other half dead friends while having a grand old time. Speaking or grand times... who doesn't like bits and leftovers for conversions?
I wanted a menacing and slightly goofy Rat Ogre to throw in the mix. Gave him a big censer to swing around and a comically sized gong/banner so he feels important and powerful among the smaller rat folks he is surrounded by. Will probably use him as a counts-as Plague Censer Bearer.
More leftover bits! These mostly come from the Screaming Bell things left on sprue with a few other Skaven and Nurgle additions. I wanted a crazed Plague Priest surfing on a flaming pit of contagion and warp stone and by golly now I have one!
And last but certainly not least we have the Plague Priest from the cart. He's too cool looking to simply stay glued to any one warmachine/mount so here he is stuck to a base for painting. Him and all of his buddies from this post (and the previous one) are primed and awaiting paint. And paint they will get! As soon as I determine how I want my rats to look... more on that soon!
