this weekend i will go on holiday and I really liked to take a small WH project with me. so i reckoned it wasn't a good idea to take all my paints with me, so I am looking for a cut and glue Project. But now i have a problem, i have no idea what to buy, so i really have something usefull added to my army, and that's where you come in
what i have so far:
about 6 mages mounted and on foot (including teclis)
1 hero, with shield and great weapon
Mage/ Prince on Dragon (rider is changeble)
5 Shadow warriors
but I doubt what to buy next. i want something with a couple of building hours, so it will most likely a Plastic box set. I'm Thinking about these sets:
A 'high elf prince and Noble Box' giving me some more options to choose my heroes from, But i don't know what build to use then...
A Spearmen box, adding a further 16 spearmen to my collection so i can play with big blocks of Spears.
A Archer box, giving the oppurtunity to play 2x 10 archers for core, and enough points for specials.
A RBT box. Will always be usefull in any army, but wont give as much tinkering time as the other boxes
i hope you could give me some advise so i can add the best option to my collection!
I'd suggest you buy a Spearmen box. 3 reasons:
I'd definetly go for the Spearmen second choice RBT
- you'd be able to enhance your Spearmen number to at least 20;
- you'd be able to enhance your Lothern Sea Guard to at least 20;
- with some conversions, using Archers/RBT bits, I think you would be able to get to 20 Archers (10+10) as well...perhaps using Spearmen legs on the Archers command group or something.
Have nice holidays
spears are terrible against anything T4 or with WS 4 or both. LSG are too expensive. You need at least 2 RBTs for games of 2k or more. You also don't have any great eagles. You're trying to play without our best two units in the game (as far as point costs go)
I'd give you 4 more archers if you want to pay their postage. You could also make your archers our of spearmen models with extra heads and arms or by mixing it up a bit.
Really, you need more special troops. WL are my favorite for large blocks of troops. PG have a hard time hurting or beating anything in combat. SM are super frail and unfortunately we don't have a way to protect them.
i'm back from my hollydays now,
i went for the spearmen box, and with some extra bits and a extra body made out of putty i managed to make
4 more LSG
5 archers (so i don't need that pesky banner model anymore)
i was quite a job, especcially because i didn't have any archer legs left, but didn't want mail on my archers so that took me quite some time and a lot of nerves to cut the spearmen feet to a 'no mail robe'.
now i'm back home i'll continue with the addition of specials and rares to further increase my army's balance.
thanks for the help
