This will be my first blog for the Fools Tale and my first blog on Fools Daily.
As Mike said we’re looking at starting new army’s for AoS and going to record our progress, so I thought a quick potted history in AoS would be a good way to start. To date I’ve played 5 full games of AoS 2 and a mess about the week after AoS was first released (now over 4 years ago!) so I’m not really the most experienced in making lists for this system, and to be fair like Mike blogged about I didn’t find it very easy to get my head round the whole how to build lists thing.
Now working out the battle line and adding up the points cost isn’t hard, but I found the battalions and artefacts and command traits not very clear, but to be fair both of the battle tomes I choose are from AoS1 and the first one I ever tried to read was the Disciples of Tzeentch which has since been FAQ’ed to death 🙂
I managed to paint an undead army (Legion of Nagash) because at least the book made kind of sense, which I took to the small event that Matt spoke about in the “It’s a wonderful Life” I had a lot of help with the artefacts, command traits and spells from Mr Ben Crowe after I had chosen the models I was going to use (most of which were what I had or could finish painting in a week) and on the drive home with Matt and the boy Rory we talked about maybe starting different armies.
Now I have always had a tendency to paint darker tones and I struggle to make models look bright, so I had had an eye on Tzeentch models as they seemed to demand being nice and bright . Also I’m looking at trying something new to paint after all painting 40 skellies in 3 days made me want nice bright colours!
Later that week I think Mike came up with the idea of the tales so looking at what I ordered and the model I got for Father’s Day I’ve already got around £187.50 of models so I don’t need to buy anything for another couple of months (like it will stop me getting more)
- Curseling, Eye of Tzeentch £15.00
- Tzaangor Shaman£20.00
- Start Collecting! Daemons of Tzeentch£55.00
- Blue Horrors & Brimstone Horrors£20.00
- Tzaangor Enlightened£22.50
- Kairic Acolytes£30.00
Now I have to be honest and say I’m a good week and a bit ahead of Mike and I’ve built and undercoated a lot of the models and I’ve started painting so I will post again soon to show some progress
