I have missed the last few WHF tournaments at GS. I had some success in past tournaments but only because I took the popular (and newbie friendly) Dark Elf combos. My basic goal is to get more painting done for each monthly tournament, whether I am able to play in it or not.
Michael had a good suggestion before about getting some unit fillers so I dug through my bits and terrain boxes looking for inspiration. I found a couple of resin, Gothic statues that I had left over from our 40k Space Hulk terrain board we did last year. I got them from Naloomi's Workshop, a local Michigan hobbyist. The statues work great as they fit on four small square bases. I picked up some new basing material because I have been using the same boring burnt grass for years.
I also finished up painting my command group and front rank for my Blackguard. So 6 out of 15 done, just need to finish basing. The unit fillers can help me run a max unit (20) if desired.
I also touched up and finished painting my favorite looking unit, 10 Cold One Knights. Internet wisdom says Cavalry aren't that great in 8th, but I have had a lot of success running this unit.
Lastly, I picked up the metal version of Morathi before the ($$$) Finecast version was released. Special characters in Fantasy seem way over costed, even more than anything in 40k. I was planning on using the model as a more useful counts-as Sorceress or Dreadlord with a Pegasus mount. But for tonight, I think I'll try Morathi out for fun. Strategy spoiler - distract beastmen with boobs, then rip out their hearts!
