So, I have decided to take the plunge into a new miniature game. Well, new to me. Sort of. I used to play back in Mark 1 some but then it got a little too rock/papers/scissors for me so I dropped it.
Well, at the urgings of many (a few) I have decided to give it another chance. I spent some time looking at the privateer press website and reading some batreps in the forums and decided that I would go with Legion of Everblight. The are kind of Dark Eldar-ish from 40k and are blind landsharks, so what is not to love?
One of the most useful places I found was another newbie blog, http://neweverblight.blogspot.com/ , and I liked how he was chronicling things. I found it very helpful and was inspired by his growth as a player – I think it would be fun for him to go back and reread some of the stuff from time to time. Anyway, it gives me a focus for my obsessing anyway to at least be able to get the thoughts out of my head.
I ordered the starter box from the Warstore and picked up a couple of other warlocks based on what I was reading (and the models I liked) Vayl and Saeryn to go with Lylyth, who comes in the starter set (you can only use one at a time but it will be nice to learn with I think). I admit it, I like the ys in chick’s names.
Well, the box came today, I am hoping to get some models built tonight, but I am a bit sick.
Another site I found for inspiration is http://archive.brushthralls.com/model-walkthroughs/faction-box-in-10-days-legion-of-everblight.html building and painting the faction box for Everblight in 10 days. I will also be pinning the hell out of my models because I just get mad when I have to fix them after they have already been painted.
