This will be less of a battle report than a recap of the game played on Friday vs Steve. This is for a number of reasons including: it was the first time I had played the wood elves in 20 odd years, so for once I wanted to concentrate on the game and also Steve… Read More Whfb Wood Elves vs High Elves – part 2 – battle rep
Last year I ran a flying doombull in my Beastmen list but I just used a standard model that I was never very happy with (loved the model but not that the loadout wasn’t represented). Inspired by the numerous excellent conversions that IRO keeps churning out I thought I’d better take a crack at it. … Read More Hobby Update – Cattleclysm and Shadestalker
And so it continues. I present Merilel of the Moon, Highweaver of Tal Shavoc. By all means not perfect but not my worst effort either. As always I kept things simple with bases colours, washes and drybrushes. The nature of the model actually meant I had to apply several layers especially on the unicorn when… Read More Hobby Update – A Fey Enchantress
This is probably my 6th post this weekend. They seem to be like buses, none come along for ages and then suddenly a whole bunch arrive at once. My next battle is lined up for the 28th against last year’s TO Steve. We have agreed to try out one of the new scenarios, Wicked Woods.… Read More Whfb – Wood elves vs ?? – Part 1 – my list.
In the final post of this series (thank god I hear you say, I can’t deal with any more of these wordy posts, where the hell are all the pictures!) I’ll look at the terrain table. I will hold up my hand and say right now that i’m not a fan of the terrain table… Read More Organising the SELWG wfb Competition – Part 5 – Terrain
Out of all the parts of the competition pack, this section was going to be the one that would make or break it and would be the deciding factor on who would want to enter. Last year’s pack contained quite a few hard restrictions, blocking you from taking certain choices. I kept this for some… Read More Organising the SELWG wfb Competition – Part 4 – Army and List Restrictions
Probably one of the most enjoyable parts of putting the pack together was coming up with the new scenarios. I’ll admit to not being at all original with these. There was some blatant unashamed plagiarism involved with a number of them. In each case, the scenarios start with: ‘played as per the xxx scenario in… Read More Organising the SELWG wfb Competition – Part 3 – Scenarios
The next few posts will cover in no particular order, various sections of the comp pack. I’ll try and explain why the choices were made (at a superficial level at least). One thing I was very conscious of, was not putting in (or leaving out) any restrictions that would benefit me. It’s one of the… Read More Organising the SELWG wfb Competition – Part 2 – Points & Secondary Objectives
This year I stepped up to run the club warhammer fantasy battle (wfb) competition. Having only taken part in the previous year’s comp’ and a few others, my only experience was in participating not running comps. So where to start? I’d had mixed feedback from last years entrants of the comp and the previous years… Read More Organising the SELWG wfb Competition – Part 1 – Survey
It’s been a while since I’ve done any painting, I seem to have just played games recently and any free hobby time was spent putting together the competition pack. With that finally completed and distributed and my next game not until the end of the month (and with me using wood elves), I decided I’d… Read More Hobby Update – The trees they’re alive!
