slight update

my army list has changed again slightly to allow me to be more flexable in the torniment (i showed the dark one my new list and he got a little scared)

hopefully i will be able to paint like crazy this week and should get some better photos up soon

the dark one told me he may be able to get some pictures up of his painted units, and they are looking very nice by the way

no news from neverwinter as of yet but with only 11 days to go he better hurry!

slight update from me.

everything is now built and other than 3 chariots have paint on them. i have a lot of work to do in the next 3 days:( (damn you call of duty 4 for distracking me).

on a side note i'm not affraid of stefking666 army just the hell cannon has me slightly worried.

thanks for the nice comment about my painted units stefking666

oh one more thing i don't know why but i still can't post any pictures, so on the day of the tournement i will see if i can get someone to take pictures of my army and post them on here.

well the torni has been and gone, overall i didnt do so badly the dark one however did.

i got a draw in my first game a win in my second and then i died horribly in the last game to a dwarf gunline of death

the dark one lost his first game got a draw in the second and a win in the last

we didnt do well enough to get in the top 3 but the dark one did win the prize for best painted army


here are some pictures of our armies on the day, yet again the pictures are not great but at least its somthing
