From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The current tray has me completing the Warhammer Quest Silver Tower boxed set that I bought in 2016 and played precisely once. It probably says a lot about my relationship with games Workshop that I do not consider this a wasted purchase.
I started with with the skaven assassin and his mirror twin, which as a bonus allows me to enter Bjorn Stormborn’s Skaven and High Elves painting challenge.
These two models appealed to me as their in-game use seemed driven by a manufacturing limitation. Warhammer Quest contains two identical sprues of enemies, once of which is the skaven model. To deal with this the designers gave the assassin the ability to create a mirror of itself to confound the heroes.
I wasn’t sure how to approach this but some googling of previous examples of painted models gave me this idea. The normal assassin is painted as a ‘normal’ skaven, while the twin looks more like a warpstone-tainted reflection.
Works for me! To complete the effect I put both models on shattered domain bases.
