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.
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.
