April Challenge

Yes, I'm at it again, thought it went so well with the Chaos Dwarfs that I would give the Skaven a go next. I have never painted a Skaven model in my life, but I am going to try to complete the list below by the end of the month. Which will entail a lot of conversion work as well as painting. I only have access to the original Skaven models and a few Mordheim plastics that I got with the game.

In other words my poses will be limited and could become a bit repetitive, but I think the Chaos Dwarfs were much the same to be honest and it didn't stop me.
So here we go:

12 Clanrats
6 Gutterunners
6 Assassins
3 Warpfire thrower teams
6 Jezzails
9 Stormvermin
12 Plague Monks
6 Censor Bearers
6 Globadiers
3 Rat Ogres. could be a problem
Grey Seers, as many as I can make
Characters, as many as I can manage.

That seems like an awful lot and here are the models I have at the moment.

Yes the only models that might help create the rat ogres are some of my sons old migit wrestlers from the 1990's... don't hold your breath. 

Not particularly inspiring, but I do have another 23 Skaven arriving via Ebay sometime this week.
No square bases, so I have those to make. Also I do have some old Mordheim Night runners, but they seem to have crept away, can't find them at all.
This could be quite a difficult challenge, so we will see how it goes. :-)
