The Challenge: thoughts and aspirations to dueling gamer's the planning has begun.

Whilst the Dueling gamer's challenge does not start until April, I have started to think about the approach that I want to take with it.

The goal to have a legal army, collected and painted in 6 months is a great one, but to ensure that I can do that I will pre-plan the first four months of my purchases, with the final two open to whimsey.
Purchases in no particular order that i currently hope to get.

  • Treeman
  • Treekin
  • Dryads
  • Drycha
  • Gladeguard
  • Gladeriders
  • Eagles
  • Spellweaver
  • Wildriders
  • Scouts/Waywatchers

But what to buy and where is as important as how to paint them.

The Wood elves usually are of a seasonal theme. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

My army will be an Autumn theme, as the reds and yellows blend in nicely with the traditional greens of the wood elves, at least I think so.

Test models are one of the hardest things to get right, and the most important, I once painted half my chaos dwarfs in a scheme that was okay, but because I rushed the test model and wasn't really satisfied with it , when I found the better colors I lost a lot more time repainting my dwarfs than if i had of spent more time on the test model. until i found the superior look.

Well I will leave it there, except to say looking forward to the start in two weeks.

Anyway I have rambled enough catch you all next time.
Cheers Lupus.


  1. Check out some of the great wood elf autumn schemes on a quick google search.

  2. Cheers Chris will do, there are some stunning paint jobs on the web that is certain.

  3. I'm really excited to see your Wood Elves grow, as they're the only army I've collected consistently in the 15+ years I've been painting Warhammer.
