Experimenting with some color schemes, I’m close to settling on a final set of colors for my new Wood Elf Fantasy army. I still need to drybrush with some lighter colors for full effect, but I’m pleased with my palette. I’m leaning more toward painting each figure’s hair a Celtic red rather than the Nordic blonde. I’m still on the fence about the TreeMan–I like the contrast between the green and magenta I’m using on the infantry, but I’m tempted so much by my favorite shade of yellow.
I’ve been helping with some logistics to set up for the first big Warhammer event in the Culpeper FLGS, coming up in just over a week now. One of the local guys put together a graphic for the event, and another local player is going to help me set up tables in the space the night before. The store sponsoring the event is not charging entry fees, but they’re putting up some decent prizes–the victor will win entry to the GT at the NOVA Open event coming up in a couple months. There will also be some door prizes.
I won’t get the chance to directly participate in the event, due to obligations at work, but I’m glad to help out and hopefully make it a worthwhile experience for the players. But this coming weekend is packed with a game of Triumph & Treachery with several of my favorite opponents, and then some terrain building, painting, and practice games with the local Fantasy players at the store.
