Sort of a little conversion idea I had brought on by some of the Skaven-counts-as-Dark-Eldar that has been floating around the internet. I alway liked the idea of the Skaven, love the semi-steampunk vibe and weaponry, adore the thirteenth fetish they have. Really, quite fond of the dirty rats.
Now, I think I've hit on an idea that will mean I can have my cake and eat it too. I can have my rat horde army. I can have a low pressure conversion that is possible for me. I can play it in a rule set that I am comfortable with and already know.
All it takes is the Vraks Heretics army list. Sigh. That's a bit of a problem in itself, since some people think Forge World material is a no-no in anything but the most casual of games. Well, honestly, those are the only kind of games I play, so maybe I just don't need to worry about it.
So, what's everyone think? Good idea? Bad? Have any interesting ideas with the Vraks Heretics list that would lend itself well to Skaven models? I know I am thinking of Rat Ogres as Renegade Ogryn, but aside from that my mind is fairly open. That's just another great thing about going to a list that is somewhat underused.
