Warhammer: Beast Kings of Ind. (Beastmen)

Every army needs a place to start.

With a number of models already in hand and a number of ideas for what I wanted to do, I sat down with the new Warhammer Armies: Beastmen book (updated from the Beast of Chaos book I'd used previously) and drafted up an extensive background for my new army: The Beast Kings of Ind.

Warhammer: The Seduction. (Beasts of Chaos)

It may seem like it's been a while since I've posted anything about painting up that massive Skaven army. That's likely because it's been a while since I've actually put any work in toward actually painting up that massive Skaven army. Why's that, you ask?

It's because I've been seduced.

It started simply enough, as most seductions do: While idly surfing the internet looking for painting ideas and tutorials, I happened upon a particularly cool looking minuature: a Skorne Bronzeback Titan.

I decided that I needed wanted to have one.

I wanted to see if I could capture the same amazingly well-painted tones and textures and to see if I could do what this other painter had done.

But having a beast so beautiful with no reason to field it would seem wasteful.  If I were to buy one, I would need an army with which to play him ...
