Right! This has been a labour of love for 6 months. Being a special snowflake, I wanted to make a ratkin army, but using only Mantic miniatures. So I bought a bunch of Warpath and Deadzone miniatures, and set to it. The theme is that the brood mother and her warlock escaped their total destruction in a basilean outpost and stumbled onto an abandoned dwarf mine on the edge of the abyss. They quickly repopulated (dirty buggers) and used the dwarven machinery and armour to force their new weapons. They captured adventurers and warbands to use as their slaves from the surrounding area, and fortified the muddied terrain (the flood, right?) with fortifications to protect against any invading forces.
This is the whole army so far. It’s way over 2500 points at this stage, and unless I want to run multiple blight (which I sometimes do, and I have some GW hordes for that), I can run pretty much most combinations.
These are tunnel slaves. There’s one ratkin brute made from a veer myn nightmare, and then just tons of other mantic minis converted with green stuff to wear rags.
With a special little visitor around the corner
More slaves, same principle. These ones are outside the mine.
Tunnel runners. These are the warpath ones, with tank tracks and green stuff spikes and blades. I’m least happy with these out of my whole army. They just look boring. But hey.
Shock troops, made from mantic night crawlers. Green stuff armour and nose cones (??) added. Abyssal arms for the shields.
These are Blight, made from veer myn nightcrawlers with green stuff cloaks.
Brutes. made from Veer Myn Nightmares with tons of green stuff. These were among the first I made, and the paint job shows.
More Shock troops. These are from 1st generation veer myn night crawlers. The models are far more fantasy and easier to adjust. Same abyssal arms. The leader is the special edition “piper” model.
My little demonspawn. He’s made from the mantic dragon with green stuff tail, fur, and a heavily altered toy rat head. He’s… ok. the tail need redoing if I’m honest, but I am a hysterically lazy human.
Hackpaws, made from goblins (and one gore rider) with veer myn heads and tails.
Clawshots. Made from goblins with guns from 40k, and veer myn tails.
Weapon teams from the veer myn gun units. Chopped off all the sci fi bits and green stuffed them to make them more steam punk.
Night Terror (again, green stuff for the sci fi bits), and a brood mother veer myn that I made into a death model for a tournament. Can go on a 40mm base for another night terror if needed.
