Brazen bells! What a tale of terror, now, their turbulency tells!

The Grey Seer
Yesterday, I finished another addition to the chittering ratulent mass that is my Warhammer Skaven army.  Of course, it is the classic metal Screaming Bell.

"You got me ringin' Hell's bells..."
Such a fantastic, characterful model.  I have the new plastic kit on the way from Maelstrom, and it looks great too, but it will be built as the Plague Furnace variant.

Counts as 12 Skaven too - bonus!
Of course, the base for this one had to be scratch-built from plasticard as the original didn't come with one.  However the new rules count the Bell as part of the unit that "pushes" it, so it should really have a base.  The great thing is, not only does painting the Bell add a great war machine to the army, it also counts as 12 extra Skaven in a unit!  (Don't worry, I only counted it as 5 models for the purposes of the painting challenge ;-)

No LEDs? I'm disappointed...

LED is so last week. Today, HO trains are making the "choo-choo" sound and birthday cards have singing microchips. I'm sure there is a kit somewhere to make that bell toll.

Lookin' good! I like the fact that you have the old school metal bell. I'm not a fan of the new one with all the "motion wind" modeled on it. Not my cuppa tea.
