Im still struggling with my ideas for a Warhammer Fantasy army... Up until this morning, these were the main contenders:
Skaven - New book, new models, wide variety of units. One of my favorites, and was the army that got me playing Fantasy in the first place.
Orcs and Goblins - Crazy variety of units, always good for a laugh.
Beastmen - New book coming up looks interesting, always been a fan of the more feral Children of Chaos.
Lizardmen - Models are nice, dinosaurs have always fascinated me.
Tomb Kings - Completely reliable army, new book is on its way. Added advantage of already having a significant amount of models.
So, these were what I was wracking myself over. If I were to choose a single force, I wanted to be sure it was one I could keep working on for the year. Then DT brought this to my attention.
Looks interesting, just gotta play one game on a specific weekend. Not bad at all. Four core choices and 1 dispel scroll? Not a problem. 2500 points, fully painted? Hrm. I have a good chunk of Tomb Kings, that wouldnt take too much work to get to 2500 fully painted points... But I have none of the Special units that are useful, like Carrion or Tomb Scorpions, and with the new book on its way, I dont know how easily I could lay hands on some, or if Id even want to.
I was planning that if I went with the Tomb Kings, I was going to start from scratch with the new book. New plastic skeletons and Tomb Guard are pretty much a given, and most of the rest of the stuff I have could use an update... But maybe Ill think about going with the dead ones in 2010, and just expand on what I have instead.
