I wondered for a long time about getting some skaven models. And as there's already some in IoB, it feels like I had to complete the army. I saw a lot of offers too but I managed to keep it under control. I repeat myself over and over "let's focus on the main army", especially when I have so few units painted. We'll see when I'll manage to paint at least half of them.

Dwarfs have a very nice style and there's a ton of way to make them look great. I'm sure yours will be awesome !

I know how that feels. Too many wonderful models / units and not enough time to paint. I do always wonder if if having a secondary army like skaven is worth it. It's a very different army from HE painting wise. A lot more models and probably a bit less details. They're not as clean as HE but a "dirty" look can be its own challenge of course.

One day... ;)

How I justify these new armies.
Both gonna be lot darker and grimier. Dark colors is just a bliss to work with. It's faster, you get to a decent enough level almost immediately and it's so much easier to hide your mistakes.
I'm so pumped. I know I could churn out like 5 models, if not more, in the same time I'd do 1 elf because of the color scheme alone.

High Elves = quality
Skaven/O&G's = quantity

Just like in Tolkien's good old epic days.
Glittering spears facing the dark tide, etc...
