well i finaly managed to track down my order from thewarstore.com
stupid customs did not send me an updated tracking number, so its a new uni term, and i have an army to construct..
so, i have
3 battle for skull pass box sets,
1 nightgoblin regiment box
1 bag of regiment bases
a large supply of plasticard
my box of usefull bits i brought with me [also contains all the chaos hounds for my chaos army... but more importantly my improved squig hoppers and supply of fanatics]
and on a very happy note, i also managed to pic up both a hero basing kit and an urban basing kit from the local GW suplier near my uni...
so, i have:
120 spear goblins
60 bow goblins
20 h-armless goblins
30 spider riders
~16 squig hoppers
+ various characters...
[and a load of dwarfs to trade of keep, not sure which yet]
althogh i have not decided on my army composition yet, i really like the idea of 2 or 3 big blocks of night goblins [49 in 7*7] armed with Hw&S as the core of my army... [each unit comes in at a little over 200pts without fanatics]
the problem is i dont have that many night goblins with hw&s, so im going to convert several of the skull pass ones to hand weapons [using plasticard gs and bordem] as well as using regenment bases to add guys who are armed with the wrong weapon in aswell...
the oly thing now is, do i extend the regement bases to be 7 log, rather than 5...
? will allow me to use 3:2:2 ratio of hand weapon, bow, spear, in most cases, going for the majority rule of most of them are armed with hand weapons [depending on how well the converting goes this number may be increased if i feel like it] allowing me to use up more archers and spear goblins
? less models to move
? less likely to lose them
? easier to batch paint [mass dry brushing ok robes]
? look dynamic
? im stuck with 7 wide units
? i would have have to extend the current regiment bases
? 3:1:1 units would be easier to identify what the unit was
so, do you think i should go with the 7 wide or the 5 wide? im leaning towards the 7 wide, as it would be more fun, and i would have the front rank of the unit all armed with the crrect weapons so that it does look right...
also... what do i do with an army of dwarfs?
