Dark Elves HR 1- Day 1
Models Remaining: 55
I'm not bothering with 'Days Remaining' because this isn't a 'Hobby Rush'. I don't have any preconceived deadline other than roughly trying to finish the 2K army before the end of the year. There's no Warhammer event or specific thing driving me to finish this quickly, so I'm going to take my time and make this army look sweet. Also, I know this list isn't an optimal list for 1K games. This list is just the Dark Elf Battalion box plus a couple of metal blisters for the characters, so don't get yer panties in a twist if you're one of those "must play an uber list at all times!" type folks. It's gonna be ok, trust me.
As you can see, I didn't get a whole lot done last night- just assembled a couple of test models. Tonight they get based and primed, and maybe I'll bust out a sample paint job. Call me unoriginal, but I think I'm going to just paint these guys straight out of the army book like the Studio army. Here's a couple of links for stage-by-stage paintjobs that GW suggests. I honestly think I'm just going to simply follow directions!
Cold Ones Tutorial
I'll probably go with a different basing scheme- I'm considering (for my very first time) a rocky/snow base to show the chill of Naggaroth. A little more effort, but cool bases make for cool minis.
So, that's about it for now. As soon as I get the first test model done, I'll take a pic and let you all check it out...
