But that's really not why I've been slow to post here. I've been working hard on finishing my Not-So-Super-Secret-Army for the team tournament at BoLSCon - er, sorry... WarGamesCon. I painted the hardest unit first, the easiest next, and I'm saving the most fun for last... but I got stalled out on two units that are right in the middle! The problem is they're older models from my collection and I based over them. I didn't think that would make a difference, but they're simply not as sleek and nice as the rest of the stuff, to the point I'm seriously considering dropping money and time on brand new models.
The problem is, I'd have to convert each and every one of them... again. The entire army has extensive conversions, and while the Aspects in question only have head swaps, it's still not easy to do. But there is no doubt the units I'm referring to are the weakest of the bunch. The only question is whether that's noticeable enough to try to change it at this late date. I may have to shoot some pics to Lauby for an opinion - I'm not sure.
Have I been caught in a monologue again?
Moving on, here's a battle report, me against Little Barerra. It's from the first week of the new edition, so it is still a bit 'going through the motions' but it includes my best one-two punch to date.
Too bad his one punch was better...
That was pretty much that. The Banshee killed my General Bray Shaman in the shooting phase after running off the Minotaurs... again. It was a fun game, but as far as a learning experience it was hugely important. It changed how I approach building the Herd and ultimately I'm approaching something workable.
(At some point I'm going to do a Vampire Counts in the magic phase post, because Little Barrera is proving all the talking heads wrong...)
