Duelling gamers : The clock is ticking.


The final month is upon us and I have a lot to complete in order to finish this duel on time, if I am to be honest I am not entirely sure that I will finish all of this by the end of the month.
It may be sometime in October before it is all finished, but that is not going to occur without a good hard slog at the painting table, with the wood,eagle and 5 wild riders still left to complete I have added the following to the target.

So on with my final shop for the Duel, my final $100 retail plus the $2.07 saved from last month I have purchased the following.
  1. 1 noble asb on foot for $4.00 kitbashed from various kits saving $19.00  but counting as $23.00 towards the challenge,
  2. 2 Waywatchers from birthday presents and 3 old school scarloc rangers which I have had since my teens , these I will be using as Waywatchers all these for $0.00 saving $48.34 but counting as $48.34 towards the challenge.
  3. 1 Spell Weaver for $0.00 from birthday presents saving $28.00 but counting as $28.00 towards the challenge
So money spent for this month is $99.34 and for the entire duel is a grand total of $697.27, all things considered as close as i could get to the target $700.

So after six months of purchases for my Wood elves my final breakdown of the expenses looks like this.
Actual money Spent $ 188.42
Actual money Saved $ 508.85
Games workshop retail equivalent $697.27

So all things considered , I have managed to build a Wood Elves army worth $700 Australian retail  and around the 2400 points mark for less than $200 Australian with a combination of trading , online stores, local games stores and of course timely birthday presents. Now the hard part needs to happen, all I have to do is have it painted and ready to go for Axemaster in three weeks time, which of course would be easier if I did not have to finish the balance of my  July / August painting.
