Welcome to Librarium Online!
As my horde of chittering ratmen grows ever bigger, other than bone ripper, thanquol and the screeminb bell, my army is lacking any real center pieces, so i thought 'hey...why not make thier god incarnete?' so heres my idea.
make him pretty much like a slann mage priest (on a palanquin in a unit) but should i have him carried into battle or make him float? or on a wave of rats (like a vermin tide)
as for the unit he is with, im either going to have him in a unit of undead skaven (use the skaven skull heads that i have going spare, rags mold etc with green stuff) or a unit of stormvermin with chain masks sculpted?
as for background on the horned rat, as hes obviously horned would that make him a seer? or should i make him a melee character or both? i prefer seer tbh.
ok as for the horned rat himself he will be made out of the grey seer with his hand pointing out with a few more horns sculpted, to make him a crown of horns, his lower body mite be totoally re sculpted in a sittin pose (if i make the palanquin im thinking of)
the palanquin i can either have as a basic wooden one, with fur and warpstone on it, OR make him a throne made entirely out of warptone shards, i can picture this esily, the skavens god hovering round the battle in a throne of dark green energy casting spells on those who try and take his kin.
any suggestions are usefull, thanks for the time to read this =D
I tried to find the old greater daemon of the horned rat for you. GW doesn't sell it anymore but I did an internet search for it. Here you gogreater daemon of the horned rat - Google Image Search
It is that big ugly Skaven looking thing. It may inspire you. Also I think it had another more common name. For those Skaven veterans out there, do any of you know this name to narrow a net search?
thanks for the help, i forgot about him, i think he was called the vermin lord, any one please correct me if im wrong.
anyways as i cant get hold of him ive decided to stick with a seer in a warpstone throne, ive salvaged 10 bells from the clanrat sprue and ill attach these to various places on the throne, for rules ill just use the horned rat as a seer on the screeming bell =] anymore suggestions would be helpfull =]
im thinking of the throne idea, but rather than use a flying base, ill attach it to a scultped unit of rats, like how the necron nightbringer has the scarabs on his base tog ive theimpression hes floating =]
the idea of it counting as a screaming bell is good because bells arent just a random powers, they give magic dice, psychology effects and such however the peoblem is it would need to be "pushed" by a group of skaven and if those skaven die or fall back then it is abandoned.
maybe the skaven "pushing" it are there to kick the rats along and if they fall back then the rats run away and the seer/deamon is on foot. anyway just some ideas, look forward seeing the model.

I also enjoy good music, fine food, late night strolls on the beach and dancing in moonkin form :)
yea some good points, ive orderd an extra grey seer to make him on foot, well...i say on foot, but hes actually goin to be a few inches of the ground to show his power still, ive made his throne, once its painted ill post some pictures for you all to see judge and hopefully give me advice on =] thanks for showing an interest
