So here we are, the arrival of a new rules set for Warhammer Fantasy. I have the models and a Codex, but no rule book. I've seen it, and like many, have avidly followed the rumors but since I have never played fantasy before many of rumors make little sense. I've been bugging the MM(esno) for about 2 weeks to explain them to me. Then I see the $75.00 dollar price tag for the rule book and I balk at paying that. I think I am holding out for the mini-rulebook assuming there is one.
All that being said I think fantasy might really interest me, as it is like nothing else we play at the store right now. In reading the rumors I started working on my army a little bit. I have a 40k chaos demons army that was bought with dual system play in mind, this was around the last time we screwed with fantasy as a store (maybe 2 years ago?) but I decided at the time to just build it for 40k, and to hell with fantasy. I've spent the last week or so working on re-basing the damn army onto square bases rather than round. Here are some pictures of where I'm going with it: (click for larger pics)
So anyhow, as you can see I'm using Hirst Arts blocks for the minibases and to build custom movement trays as well. I've got the spare bricks laying around so I may as well use them for something.
I'm not even sure the army will be played, and it probably will never see much paint, fantasy just never seems to 'take' around here and I generally prefer skirmish games anyway.
I'm actually looking forward to building a nice skirmish table, about a 4x4 size, that can be used for Confrontation, Warmahordes (assuming we can ever get some local players to go after that game), Malifaux (nice fun game), and other skirmish level games, I guess you could play Mordheim on it too but I just don't need another GW game in my life.
So anyhow that's what's happening in Evil Homer's neck of the woods right now. If I ever get around to actually building an HA table I will certainly post WIP pics here. I did get the 12x12 tiles cut this past weekend though...so maybe it might happen.
I guess that is enough rambling for now. There Brent you happy now? I posted something...
