I've never met an Elf I liked...

I'm trailing in third placed with my completed Dark Elf army of 1000 points. With the end of January nipping at my heals I have to say that I'm quite happy to have made it. A house move, and the on-going DIY projects, significantly impacted on my time to get this finished. I have to thank my wife for allowing me to get some brush time despite the chaos that surrounds us.

Looking at my force and the pictures of my friends armies I begin to wonder if I've spent my points wisely. The High Elves have a lot of fire power and some hard hitting units, the Lizardmen are well Lizardmen and the new book may make them worse +++Sigh+++ and although the Skaven have yet to appear on this blog completed they are quite bent and only likely to get worse.

At least I can adjust my fall of shot after a few games with my new army. I have plenty of figures to build and a Hydra is certainty.

Writing this has made me realise that whilst it has taken 5 months to collect, build & paint this army, I really could have done it in 3! No, no no, NO! I wont be doing the next 1000 in 3 months. Or will I????

Of all the things we've tried as a group of gaming pals this is one of the most successful. Far better than the Annual painting challenge (a year to paint a single figure) . I've still to undercoat mine and the comp finished 2 weeks ago.

  1. Good work, 3 down 1 to go..

    Soon we'll fight to the death with fully painted armies.

    It happens so rarely it might bring a tear to my eye (probably when I lean down over the table for LOS and get caught on a halberd)
