The Most Feared Weapon of All: Board with a Nail in It.

Powder can get wet.  A bowstring can break. A lightsaber's battery can drain.  A high-velocity gatling rail-gun can jam.  A solar-converter can overheat.

But nothing is as reliably deadly as the trusted-for-centuries Board With A Nail In It.  From Revolutionaries to Zombie Apocalypse Survivalists, all respect the great-equalizer: Board With A Nail In It.

Just listen to what Alien Invader Kodos has to say on it:

" They constructed a board with a nail in it, but they won't stop there.  They'll construct bigger boards, with bigger nails, and they'll construct a board with a nail in it so large, it will destroy them all..."

Inspiring words.



And so, on a recent project for a client who wants a Skaven Mordheim warband, with two skaven with clubs, I had to give him a club to be feared.  Nothing but the best.

So here is a Skaven with the most dreaded weapon of the galaxy:

See my board with a nail in it, and squeek in terror! 
 

Stay tuned to see more of this warband soon!

When you absolutely, positively, got to kill every lizardman in the room; accept no substitutes!

A great little conversion.

Don't forget that you can't use most weapons as shelter, but with a large enough arsenal of "Boards with a nail in it!" you can keep yourself safe from the weather and possible intruders.

Thanks all :) Glad you like the make-shift weapon :)

Dr.W: nice new avatar.. makes me think of the album cover of English Beat's 'I just can't stop it' :)

Chris: excellent point! With efficiency like that, I'm surprised the Romans didn't replace their gladius & pilum with these!
