Some progress

Just finished up 5 Ironbreakers. This includes the entire command for the unit. I'm really happy with how quickly they came together. One day of painting chainmail all over and then another for all the other colors and details. Badab Black wash is fast becoming one of my favorite painting tools. Ever. I really love the sculpts for the IBs, so old school but still awesome, they hold their age much better than some of the other old sculpts. They were a lot of fun to paint and I just can't get over how cool they look. I don't think my wallet or my fiancee would appreciate doing an Undrin Ankor force? Ahwell.

Also started thinking about doing a Wood Elves army today. I know, elves! The idea of a force themed around a forest at the height of fall is so cool though. Lots of brown but with subtle reds, oranges and just a hint of yellows throughout. I don't know much about the elves so I will read up on them but my next purchase might just have to be a WE codex and battalion.
