The Skaven

Concerning the vile Skaven, led by Squeephylis the Vicious

After a few years of elves, and not succeding very well with them, I wanted something new. A new slate to start from. Looking back, I probably should have started a Vampire Counts army but locally there were two players having undead already so I chose the unexplored – the Skaven. If it was a mistake to start collecting Skaven, it was the best mistake I ever made. They were the opposite of the High Elves, filthy, slightly unpredictable sneaky and nasty. And every time I lost I didn’t destroy a part of the race’s future. And in my (and any other’s) hands they were might, and my elves were not.

At this time, it was a bit of hard work keeping the money flowing in a suitable current in and out, student as I were and more independent than before. I worked then in the harbour, meaning early mornings, and late evenings and too often in between some studies to do. And between that some student organisation time. It was intense. As was the smell of the musk of fear on my opponents when the ratling guns fired and the bound spells were searing the friskers.
