The Brief

Simply, its been years since I’ve actually bothered to finish a complete army (my last being an Eldar Craftworld army back in 2003 or something). Since then I’ve flitted from army to army and model to model, rarely finishing anything and never ending up with a finished army i can game with and feel proud of (much to the annoyance of my wife :)),

... This year that changes!

I'm going to use the awesome Tale of Fantasy painters 2010-11 as a catalyst to get my first fantasy army up and running. Over the next year I’ll be aiming to complete a 2k points army and then roll it out against some opponents. Without further ado, i give you the list!

Lord

Prince
Barded Elven Stead
Shield
Great Weapon
Dragon Armour
Radiant Gem of Hoeth
Vembraces of Defence

Heroes

Noble
Great Weapon
Battle Standard
Armour of Caledor
Guardian Phoenix

Mage
Level 2
Annulian Crystal
Lore of High Magic

Core

25 x Spearmen
Full Command

25 x Spearmen
Full Command

Special

18 x White Lions of Chrace
Banner of Eternal Flame
Full Command

5 x Dragon Princes of Caledor

5 x Ellyrion Reavers
Bows

10 x Swordmasters of Hoeth

Lion Chariot of Chrace

Rare

None

Moving forward I’ll be kicking off my first ToFP 2010-11 entry at the end of this month (Sep 2010) and posting regular WIPs are we go.

Wish me luck :)

sorry, Im not seeing anything either....wait, there they are! I like the lion banner and the lion shoulders. I would just make the green on the banner pop a bit more. Great idea to keep things seperate while painting, I did too, but not to this extent and I wish I had.

cheers, Bard

Nice bit of freehand on that banner. How've you done the lions skin? I had a lot of trouble trying to do that with mine, ended up just doing them closer to a real lions skins :)

All the best laid plans...

So I’ve played a joker in my first month of the Tale of Fantasy painters, post below,


Will post some thoughts on everyone’s excellent work so far soon, but as for me....

JOKER!

All the best laid plans bought to ruin by the belated birth of my son, Noah on 05/09.

So this month is catch-up, will finish the Lion Chariot and try and get a Sword master unit done too (crying baby permitting :))

Having a new baby in the house certainly throws the balance out the window (til a new one is struck that is :)) so obviously the paintings taken a bit of a back seat.

Now things are settling down a bit now, I can get things back on track! Sat in front of me as I type this is my first 'wave' of purchases for the army in various states of built, on sprew etc. All going well a few pics of cleaned, tidied and primed models should appear in this thread in a couple of days...
