I`ve been 17 years in the hobby more or less, or rather more since Hero Quest was my first venture into the miniature hobby. Anyways, the first 12 years I played Warhammer Fantasy with some small distractions in 3rd ed 40K and Warhammer Quest. The point is I got so fed up with FB that I dropped it and vowed never to play it again..so instead I dedicated myself to 40K, Necromunda, Blood Bowl and lastly FoW. That was until I read the WD dedicated entirely to 8th ed FB. It really sparked that good old feeling in me again and I decided that it was high time that I did that Undead army I`ve been thinking about for years and years.
So with the TOFP coming in approx at the same time that I`m starting this army it suited me fine to join in to keep me on my toes and actually completing this. The only downfall to this all is that I`m on a very (VERY) tight hobby budget these days, having three kids and a GF that`s starting a 4 year long study this autumn. Luckily for me I`ve got a ton of stuff lying around and with a few trades with some friends of mine I`ve now got all I need for 2000 points +!
I`ve decided to do an Empire theme for my VC army, specifically Stirland. Here`s my testfig for the first zombie horde:
I`m going for a "standard" Empire look on this army with the formations so this zombie is part of the shooty attachment to the main block.
I know that it`s a bright Stirlander scheme but after looking through my WDs and coming across that brilliant VC army two guys made for a doubles tournie I figured that I wanted an army that had a little "visual pop" instead of the usual colour tones used on Undead armies. My GF told me it needed a bit more blood here and there to make it look a bit more natural, especially on the face and legs. I agree on it (as I`d dare anything else, lol!)!
Hope ya like and more is coming soon! Oh and please drop some c&c if you feel like it
