While I wasn't looking for this army, a great deal came my way. I was able to pick up a lot of stuff, more than I'll use for a skirmish game. Here's a picture of the everything I picked up.
- 3 Sorceresses with skull staff
- 1 Sorceress on Cold One
- Morathi on Dark Pegasus
- Cauldron of Blood and crew
- 4 Repeater bolt throwers
- 3 Assassins
- 18 Cold One Riders with Command
- War Hydra and 3 handlers
- 40 Spearmen with cmd
- 32 Crossbows with cmd
- 20 "Old school" plastic warriors (Hand weapon & shields)
- 1 Executioner Command team (5 models)
- 38 Black Guard with Command (Some old school models in this; I guessed they were Black Guard)
- 14 Shades
- 20 Corsairs with cmd
- 10 Dark Riders with cmd
- 32 Witch Elves with cmd
- 2 Familiars
I'm not playing WHFB anymore, and no one around me is interested. At a cost of $1k to get started, it's no wonder. While I have a lot of models now, it's still not enough to make standard units. I'd still have to dump more money into this to get a playable army. I wouldn't do that, but do plan to get that awesome DE lord on a black dragon. He'll be my reward for painting this whole force.
I've got some great plans for this army, especially the Witch Elves. I want to paint them up as Drow, not the pale-faced bad boy elves that GW does. Also, I should really consider looking at Kings of War as an alternative to WHFB. I bet this force would work fine. Now if only I can find an opponent for KoW! I have two other armies in GW format to use in KoW. I just need a willing player.
That's all for now. I've got some painting to do.
