OK, this has taken a while but I have finally got a camera; so as promised in my sig since I joined its time to create a Project Log I have got quite a lot of minatures to paint but what I am building and trying to paint up are Skaven, Wood Elves and High Elves.
The skaven is going to be my army; and something I have wanted to build since bout 1993 when they were featured in white dwarf magazines. I've always loved the idea of creating a huge horde army orcs and goblins never appealed to me but the rats with their weird and wonderful technology which was more likely to blow themselves up than the enemy had a certain appeal Since I like all aspects of the Skaven I'm going to do a "grand alliance" army taking units from all clans but the colouring is going to be more unit based than clan based.
The elves I plan to do as a dual alliance army and are for my g/f She couldn't decide which elves she wanted liked one had plenty of dragons was generally easier to play and the other looked "pretty". In the end I made a compromise and said I will paint her High Elves with a "Pink" Accent. truefully even though I cringed when I first agreed to it I've done a few test pieces and the pink has come out very nicely. The wood elves are going to be in dark green and "mahogony" brown
BIG EDIT: added army shots of half and finished units
I'm removing the to-do list as quite frankly I don't even know anymore.
