    Hi everyone.

    The Skaven invasion continues with the Gutterrunner, specialists in espionage from Clan Eshin.

    ps. one guess as to what the original unit was :mischief:

    Your latest Skaven units are very good! The original unit was Aaglo's Sneaky Git :). Good work!

    Correct! I'm sorry, but you don't get a prize. Next time, maybe...

    So there's more than one Skaven unit creator! Cool!

    Just so you know, I'm working on a Slaverat worker, Poison Wind Globadier, Warplightning Cannon and Warpfire Thrower.

    What do you use to make units?

    Looks nice, but that tooth looks just a bit too white, It looks pretty conspicous.

    Yeah, the teeth are pretty white, but I wanted to make sure you could see them. I tried them with darker colours but they didnt look very good (IMO)

    Cant wait for the units you said you are working on.
    I'd really kill for a Vermin Lord tho (the big demon rat) ;-)

    Cant thank you enough, the skaven really are the last of the major factions from WH which arent represented with some civ3 community units.

    Thanks for the encouragement and welcome to CFC!

    Vermin Lord sounds cool. Have you got a pic?

    Yeah, that's looking good. It doesn't have a tail, which at least some of the other skaven has, is that a mistake, as it should be, or just laziness? :)

    Not lazy. The Gutterrunners keep their tails tucked inside their cloaks when they are on a mission, to keep it out of the way. Well... that's the story i'm sticking to. I'll probably do another one with a tail if that would be better

    Well, I'm planning on doing this guy:

    I'm planning on greying one of kryten's legionaries and pasting the head you use on him. Don't expect it good, or soon, :lol:. These guys are just too cool not to have a civ.

    In the WH fluff, its essentially the "greater demon" of the skaven god, and there is all kinds of background on how only the most powerfull skaven wizards (grey seers) can summon them, but are "loathe to summon what they cannot dismiss" hehe

    If you model one, it should stand somewhat taller than the normal skaven.

    Thanks again for the great units!
    I've been lurking on this forum for almost 2 years and have been waiting that entire time for some skaven!!

    @ gentimjs: THAT IS CRAZY! This would probably have to be a wonder-spawned unit, so there aren't too many of 'em running around. It is going on the list. Good job! Are there any other Skaven units that we've missed and should be included?

    @odin: good on you, but what unit is it? Stormvermin? Nightrunner?

    and keep in mind the scale. skaven units should be a little smaller than usual. that's why i usually base my skaven on lizardmen and hobgoblins.
