I've also returned to the Doomwheel based on the feedback I received to my posting asking for input. I am not quite 100% based yet, but the woodwork on the model is totally complete. I will post a WIP pic tonight before quitting time (assuming my professional quitting time is reasonable).
I've also come to something of a conclusion on the Warmachine v. Hordes faction issue that I posted about. I've decided that I like Circle stuff, but until the Hordes 2 Player Starter releases, I will begin with Warmachine. I have read plenty of interesting stuff about the play-styles of the factions and believe that, while I have a deep love of Russian history (despite my German heritage), I can't abide an army who's play-style is described as "walk straight at the enemy and punch them in the face"; it sounds flat and uninspiring to me. I've read plenty that I like about Menoth building synergy and denying enemy abilities, as well as Cryx having a wide array of ways to "peel the onion". This is coming down to a knock-down, drag-out thing here, but I'm close. I just need a nudge in the right direction...
Anyway, skaven pics:
