My Next Army – Dark Elves
Over the past months I have been considering which army to collect and paint next. My initial thoughts were either Vampire Counts, Wood Elves or a Khorne Daemon army.
I purchased the Dark Elves army book on the day of release back in 2008. The army was going to be for my son, who wanted at the time to get back into Warhammer Fantasy. But he lost interest shortly afterwards.
In November this year at the Immortal War tournament I won a box of Dark Elves Warriors for best painted army. So my fate was sealed, with my Dark Elves army book and a box of Dark Elves Warriors it was going to be Dark Elves.
This army project will be purely a painting and basing miniatures project. Although the Dark Elves are considered to be one of the best armies at the moment, the army list build will be based around the miniatures I would most like to paint not which units are better on the battlefield.
I will be collecting all the miniatures I want to paint first, then when I have all the miniatures only then will I commence building and painting. I am not expecting to start building and painting until around April next year. The Warriors of Chaos project will probably take me until March to complete anyway.
My target is to have a fully painted Dark Elves army by November next years for the Immortal War tournament, leaving me around eight months to complete.
