This year has been a great year for Fantasy in our group. I managed to con a couple more people into playing so we can get a great league going next year. I also did some Army ADD finagling - I started an Empire army, traded it to Geneguard for painting commissions, sold my Tomb Kings and started a Beastman army.
I also purchased Tamurkhan and Monstrous Arcanum from Forge World. Monstrous Arcanum inspired me to purchase some models... hell, I guess I would have bought them anyway. They're sweet and they fit in with my Beastmen really well. I plan to run a Tamurkhan campaign at some point with a narrative of Chaos vs All.
In March I actually managed to take second place at a WHFB tourney at GS. I got lucky in that the first round I got my herd beat by Teclis and managed some favorable matchups in the second and third rounds and got max points there. I beat Tau4Eva out by 2 points I think for second place.
I recently comitted to painting 3000 points of Beastmen by inauguration day. I can tell you right now I'm definitely behind on that. I've been distracted by some Warmachine models and putting together Flames of War models but I hope to get back on track. I will have 3000 points for sure based on some big point value things I've painted but I want to get my big hordes painted.
We'll also be doing a Great Lakes Warhammer League division at Gamers Sanctuary this year. This is huge because the GLWL has been a Michigan wargaming tradition for quite a long time. I plan to have my army painted by then so I can put out awesome battle reports with a fully painted army.
There is nothing more inspiring than a fully painted Warhammer regiment. It looks so cool and really brings the vision of fantasy war to your head. Follow this blog in 2013 for a LOT of hobby progress and battle reports regarding WHFB. We'll also be running campaigns and the GLWL league of course so it promises to be a big year for WHFB!
