Skaven & D&D Minis

Got my eBay orders in today; immediately cracked them open to start fiddling with them.

For starters, I ordered five Rat Swarms from the D&D Minis Unhallowed set.  I have several of the GW Rat Swarms (more than I can field in the current armybook; not sure about the new one), and they're alright.  But the D&D Minis one looks crazy cool.  So, I snagged a few.  They'll repaint easily, and if it ever comes to it I can always fall back on the GW ones.  Here's the one I've pulled off its round base and glued onto a 40x40 (next to the GW one).



More significantly, I've got the Lifeleech Otyugh I mentioned earlier.  And... I'm not sure.  For some reason, I expected it to be bigger.  I mean, it's big, but it's not Large Target, "So big does it go on a 50x50 or a 50x100 base?" big.

Here it is, next to one of the Gutter Runners I've take too long to finish painting.



The other thing is, I'm thinking about using it to make another Rat Ogre-mounted Warlord.  I think I could pull the tentacles off (put one in the place of that third leg as a tail), replace the two feet with hands from a Rat Ogre and work in the legs from a Rat ogre.  I'd have to do a bit of sculpting to get a face on the thing, and there'd be a bunch of hair, but I've got to do that anyway.



Anyway, now I'm kicking this around.  If that's where I go, I'm not sure what to use as my Hellpit Abomination.
