We'll find out soon enough eh.

Ahoy, I'm after a couple of specific things. First and most importantly, I need 5 of the plastic Skavenslave bodies from the Skaven Clanrats box, the ones in the image below boxed in red. Ideally 3 of the leg-shackled ones and two with just the manacles but I'll take what I can get.

I'm also looking, though less urgently, for a small selection of the Battle for Skull Pass Night Goblins, mainly the three unit Champions, and one apiece of the different Bow and Spear/Shield models(ie, no repeat sculpts).

In exchange I can offer in trade any of the Dwarf infantry and characters from Battle for Skull Pass(I have two intact sprues), Skaven Plague Monks or specific bitz from that kit(I got a unit in the Start Collecting box I have no intention of using), or money through Paypal. EDIT: Oh, aye, and non-Skavenslave Clanrats.

I'd prefer to stay within the EU to avoid excessive shipping fees or customs shenanigans, but if you can provide all 5 Skavenslaves or all the BfSP Goblins in one go we can probably make an arrangement. Drop me a PM and post below to say you've done so, I occasionally don't notice the message icon but I will be checking this thread periodically.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks
"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

I think you are making things difficult for yourself Yodhrin.
You are basing slaves on only a fraction of the available sculpts which wont look so good and people might not even notice the shackles. I normally dont.

May I suggest another way, or in fact three options..

First don't give your slaves shields, but give all your clanrats shields.

Second, If you wan to give your slaves shields then instead add extra rats to the back rank with better equipment and give them whips. Clanrats are different from slaves then due to the lack of whip and prod armed rats taking up the back rank. The advantage of this is that clanrats and slaves are functionally identical which helps with list building. The disadvantage is that you need to take casualties from in front of the back rank.

Third, and my favourite option is to dock the tails of slaves. This means your slaves cannot hope to become clanrats, but the nihilism is part of Skaven life anyway. Rodents function quite well with half a tail, I had pet mice with half a tail, each lived a full normal life, for a mouse. Its a common injury when cats get them. For authenticity rodent tail amputees have a tiny stub of bone that does not grow over so if you dock them instead of a clean cut file down the last millimeter to about half its width and paint that bit bone.
Docking slaves tails makes their status in Skaven society very obvious, its an easy thing to do and frankly should be part of the lore, chopping off a defeated rats tail would be easy to do, s survivable and disgraces the rat.
Dock tailed skavenslaves would make the units very distinctive

Thread Necro? Maybe, but the thread is linked to from Yodhrin's current siggie so maybe its relevant now.

n'oublie jamais - It appears I now have to highlight this again.

It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion. By the juice of the brew my thoughts aquire speed, my mind becomes strained, the strain becomes a warning. It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion.
