Wrong Turning

Okay so although I said my focus is High Elves, I may have taken a wrong turning and painted a Banshee by accident.

It’s okay though as I can use it in Triumph & Treachery   =-S

It’s the new plastic Banshee from GW.

Beautiful kit and very easy to paint.

Welcome to the Asur

For this blog my focus is going to be on my High Elves.

I own 5 fantasy armies all of which aren’t painted but following a recent tournament and the force to paint 1200 points which was undertaken by myself and good friend Dan aka Brawlerguts I’ve decided that this is the kick up the backside I need to start putting a sizeable force together.

Pics of my force so far:

For month 1 my focus is going to be on a Dragon… this easily hits the 250 points and also means I don’t have to paint 20+ guys straight off.

Let me introduce Talinda Fire Heart, Mistress of the skies of Caledor.

She has a fiery temper, especially as she’s just given birth to some baby Dragon’s and wants to protect them at all costs!

The project is partly complete (armour done) but everything else needs doing…. I best get my arse in gear!

Future idea: so if this is the mum, who’s the father!

Inspired by Games Workshop’s ‘A Tale of Four Gamers’ article from many moons ago, the lads at Innsmouth Gaming Club are to embark upon a similar feat. Introducing; A Tale of 9 Gamers.

The rules:
Starting from today, Sunday 1 December, each gamer will collect, build and paint a minimum of 250 points each month, and will share their progress on this blog. Some will use it as an opportunity to start a new collection, while others will use it to grow an existing force. There’s no hard and fast rules about what can be included in the 250 points minimum, allowing players to paint a regiment of troops, special character, monster, war machine, or whatever they fancy! Games will be arranged between the players and special scenarios invented to balance the forces chosen. Expect exciting updates from each player on painting, list-building, conversions, gaming, and fluff – the chaps are all very excited and ready to go!

The intrepid gamers at Innsmouth Gaming Club are all aiming to have a fully-painted, legal force in a few months. Please follow their progress and support them on their epic journey.
