thx VK, mike, cuchulain23, and deafnala for taking the time to comment
VK: one of my favorite comments ever: "threadomancy" (belatedly) from another post
the skaven is the queek headtaker GW finecast
I hated the back piece and the right hand axe...so I hacked it and made it more mace-like
someone else posted a "flying" version that I liked better on a post (no rats but mounted on a thin wire post)...if I re-do his basing I'll totally copy that excellence
I also think a great camera really improves posting @ TBMF...
