Almost Done!

I've got every piece I need for my 1000 point army (that I have) done. Now I just need 10 Wardancers and 2 Great Eagles. They're looking great. Can't wait to get them onto a table. The Glade Riders aren't glued onto their mounts, because I'm not sure if I want to run Glade Riders or Wild Riders. Although I'd want to convert to Wood Elves riding on these wolves if I run Wild Riders. You can see my Spellweaver beside my Glade Riders too, waiting to get a better picture of her.

More on the way

I got more units on ebay that should finish out all my army needs (maybe one more unit of dryads). Paying way below new cost for some old style mages and 5 wardancers, and a battalion from our local game shop. Can't wait to finish them all. Then I can find opponents on Warhammer Wednesday.

Only problem I'm having is with priming my Spellweaver. The white spray paint is flaking off, and I'm hoping it's just a bad batch. I'll need some Simple Green to clean her off though.

I'm done with my Elven Steeds and Glade Guard. Next up on the list is the actual Glade Riders and my Spellweaver. I've also got a Wood Elf Battalion on the way! That means 24 more Guard, 8 Riders, and 12 Dryads. Converting one of the Dryads into a Branchwraith will be interesting (I don't like the idea of using a Drycha model).

The Steeds were fun, I went with Palominos with a fair amount of white markings (maybe too much). My other unit, I plan on using colorings for a breed that can produce Palominos, so as to make sense, even if the balance won't be right.

I also realized, my camera sucks...

The Guard took a lot more time, but I learned a lot for the next batch. I won't be attaching cloaks this time before I paint them. The fletching is white, with a variety of colors dry-brushed on. Jess gave me lots of pointers through the process, and they helped them come out looking a lot better.

All I'll have left for my 1000 point army is a mounted Lord. ( I don't like how the one from GW looks though, so I'm going to either need to convert or find one by another manufacturer.

My 2000 point army will need a Spellsinger, Battle Standard Bearer, and another unit of Dryads. Possibly a unit of Riders as well. It's far from final, 'cause I need experience playing and do some more tactics research.

DDR at the In-Laws

We went over to Jess's parents' house tonight to play DDR and eat burgers. I couldn't resist the opportunity to put a picture of her mom playing on the internet.

Just Getting Started

Gotta hate starting a new blog, never know what to start it out with. I'm a recently graduated student of OSU with a degree in Management Information Systems current getting by working as a Customer Service Manager at Wal-Mart until my lease is up and I can find a job actually related to computers. I'm always trying to find a hobby to keep my entertained and I'm hoping that the strategy in playing and the time collecting and painting for Warhammer will be enjoyable for a decent amount of time.

I tried to get into Warhammer about 6 months ago, when I was still in in school, but I didn't have the time for it. Now that I'm out and working more often I can afford it and have time for it. I chose Wood Elves to make my first army. I haven't gotten to play yet, and honestly only have about 500 points, but I hope I can learn to play them well and enjoy myself.

Everything is still a work in progress, but I've started painting my Glade Guard and Glade Riders. Going into Alternate Realities when I have the time to find other players and might occasionally buy a box from them, but I usually go through ebay. It's cheaper.
