The Tröjan Rat
In 2513 IC the Empire town of Tröja, famed for it's seamstresses and prostitutes, was suddenly besieged by the Skaven. The siege lasted a long time, until one morning when the whole besieging army had suddenly disappeared. The only thing left was a large wooden rat, apparently a gift left by the retreating skaven. The townsfolk opened up their gates and brought it into the city...

Yeah, I'll build a giant wooden rat. :D (Idea stolen/borrowed from Spaco) I've started work on the head, which will have a skaven with a ratling gun popping up out of a hatch.

The gun is made from a weapon from a chaos obliterator, and a space marine back pack.

Awesome!!! Can't wait to see this develop! Are you doing an Eshin or Skrye theme?

Thanks guys. I'll go for a "whatever is cool and skaveny"-theme. Think I'll have a chieftain standing on the roof, some rat ogre bits sticking out possibly. We'll see. I've started making the chassis from sprue, thinking about what kinds of feet and similar should be sticking out in the bottom.

Where you put that 2nd gen space marine back pack is genius.
I also love how scatter lazers, assault cannons and multi lazers are ratling guns.
It's what I used ^_^

I think your little project is coming along quite fine. I can already picture it in action.

[Tröjan rat is being hauled in]
Guard: Sir, don't you think it's a bit suspicious that the entire sieging army has disappeared and all that is left is this giant wooden rat? I mean it might be a trap.
Captain: Hahaha! What nonsense! Next thing you know you'll say the earth is round!

With my Skaven, I can finally consider people calling me "vermin" to be praise!

I've no idea what you're talking about, and I haven't seen that film... more than fifteen times.

You know you have to put a clan rat holding the holy grenade now don't you??

awesome idea! :D you should really do it - but you should make it a globadier rather than a clanrat.

Haha, now that idea makes me think of it running over an Empire "Frenchman" with a pointy helmet. :lol:
