I have made a decision. It may sound like an Irish tradition, but 2012 will be the year of the elf for this gamer.
Why? Well like most wargamers I have far too many projects to work on (resulting from the ‘shiny effect’ when a miniature company releases new models), however I have two particular armies I would like to made some major progress on.
Firstly, my Retribution of Scyrah Warmachine army needs some more work. I already have all my myrmidons either assembled or painted, but there are a lot of foot soldiers left to paint. Over November and December I have assembled and undercoated almost enough to hit 50 points with two warcasters so that’s what I’m working on at the moment.
The first Mage Hunter Assassin is almost done so I’m making progress. Slow progress, but progress.
Next up will be my Eldar. I’ve struggled to get the enthusiasm to really get into this project, however with the new Imperial Armour 11 book out (which I fully intend to order at somepoint) and a new Eldar codex due within 18 months (allegedly) , I’m itching to get back to them.
I’m also seriously thinking about re-imagining Rath-Torhan, my craftworld, to make the colour scheme easier and faster to implement.
On the grounds my Iosans are using a very natural colour palette, I’m thinking about doing something very sci-fi for my Eldar, and I’m also thinking about using yellow as one of the main colours because I don’t have a yellow army today.
Anyway, here is the prototype colour scheme so please let me know if you like it!
