Reader Poll - Choose my next painting project!



*Squeek*

OK, now I need your help with a decision...
...what unit to paint next!

Please do me a favour and click on the poll on the screen to help me choose. 
I will paint whatever you - the hated man-things, decide. (If you happen to be a Grey Seer, or other notable member of the great Skaven race, then accept my apologies for such an insult....)

I own the following models so really just need a decision. In brackets below you can see how many of the unit I actually already have "ready to play" and painted in my force. 

The choices are:

  1. Poison Wind Globadiers. (Currently: 0)
  2. Plague Censer Bearers. ( Currently: 0)
  3. Stormvermin. (Currently: 0 )
  4. Warpgrinder Team(s) (Currently: 0)
  5. Doom-flayer(s) (Currently: 0)
  6. Clanrats. (Currently: 120)
My thoughts are:
Poison Wind Globadiers

Globadiers? 
Cool, but would almost never use them. Also not so keen on the fact that they all look so similar, so might do some light conversions with the weapons etc to shake things up a bit.
Plague Censer Bearers

Plague Censer Bearers
Not a huge fan of the models compared to the IOB and more recent plastics, and it seems as though not many people take them these days. On the other hand, I only need a small unit so they wouldn't take too long...
Stormvermin

Stormvermin?
I have had these from my first purchase but just never got around to them. I only have 20, so they couldn't be a major force on the battlefield. They might be useful as a small bunker for my general or battle-standard bearer though?
Warpgrinder

Warpgrinder? 
Now that I actually have some Clan Eshin guys in my army, they might be helpful. On the other hand, why take the risk of a cave-in when the Clan Eshin unit can probably make its way to the enemy's backline without too much trouble anyway?
Doomflayer

Doom-Flayer? 
A big plus - it is a cool model and the fluff is great. 
A big fat minus - most people don't seem to think they are too effective on the battlefield. (But then again, I never get to play any games of WFB anyway!)
Skaven Clanrats
Copyright Games Workshop
Clanrats?
Who doesn't need more Clanrats?

Now that I have a pretty strong core of my army built up, it might be fun to spend some time on units that don't seem to be essential to the Skaven in 8th edition, but I will leave that up to you - the voting public - to decide!

Cheers,

*Squeek*
