Another Skaven character worked his way up from the basement and demanded being shown on the blog.
This time it is a warlock engineer with his trusted warplock rifle. Having little or no long range shooting as a Skaven army, I loved the option of giving characters these guns. It might just pick of an enemy model or two (wardancers or other troublesome skirmishers) and thereby paying for itself, but it also gave me something to do in the early shooting phases.
The model itself is the old "Skaven sorcerer with warplock pistol" from late 1988 or 1989. The barrel has been extended slightly (inexpertly) to produce a rifle instead of pistol but otherwise it is a brilliant model from the early waves of Skaven. That wave really defined the Skaven for me and still ooze of character, more than the modern models do in my opinion."I'll Kill-Kill you now and next turn your neighbour!"
