More Than One Way To Skin A Rat

Heya Folks!

 

Okay so I wanted to throw out a challenge to you all to come up with useful ways of utlizing the rats that are coming as part of the Dungeon Pack. I noticed that several people are trading or selling them. Why? They are so useful! For example (and I apologize now for the 40k reference on this forum):

 

Mortor or Missile Launcher Heavy Weapons Teams

No, seriously! Do up a 'Rat Handler' modeled with a control stick from the Sentinal pilot's arm and greenstuff some straps on the rats to attach whatever kind of ammo you need to fit the bill. Picture a giant rat with a dozen frag grenades duct taped all over it!

How can people not want rats?! They are suited to almost every possible campaign world, and are non-intimidating figures for more novice painters.

I'm envisioning Rat-Onna-Stick, a Morporkian delicacy. I'd love to do a diorama with goblins and others eating the rats.

I was planning on converting some of them into Borogroves for my Wonderland diorama.

 

I was thinking of following Froggy the Great's lead and turning some rats into Slithy Toves: (http://www.reapermini.com/TheCraft/38)

I guess I could see Borogoves, too -- stick them on some stilt legs, use a bit of putty, paint up their noses as beaks?

Nice! I had another idea: do up a couple on a 'swarm base' and they can be used for a number of varieties of rat. In this particular case I was thinking about drilling big holes in them and then greenstuffing some gore and infectious yuck. Could be an alternative to Nurglings...
