I have had wanted to start fantasy for a while when the IoB set came out and bought it straight away with the noble intention of making a lean mean high elf army, that not only worked on the table top but looked awesome aswell.
Yet here we are, nearly a year later and I have half a dozen or so models in various stages of completion, some sprayed, and some only assembled.
When a dwarf friend of mine told me of his intention to join the Tale of X Gamers it seemed like a great chance to motivate myself to paint my army and so here I am.
Long talk aside, I am going to paint 2500pts of High Elves over 12 months. Roughly 210 pts a month but this may vary a bit based on the units invlolved.
The list I am going to be using is...
Armour of Caledor
Seerstaff of Saphery
20 Lothern Sea Guard
Banner of Eternal Flame
19 Phoenix Guard
Banner of Sorcery
As someone with very limited WHFB experience this list is only intended to be a decent all comers list using a mix of models I own and models I like. However if there is anything wrong/ really bad with it I will be posting it in the High Elves army list forum too, so please comment there. The pics of this months projects will be on later tonight when I can find my camera.

I will be keeping an eye on this. Can't let the enemy get ahead. Dwarf "friend" subscribed.
So your target of 210 is pretty good, one thing I will stick my tongue out at is that three models make up 4 months worth of painting... very sneaky!
I've been thinking of going back and doing high elves for a while since they got their book (mine are all 4th ed and earlier!) so this on will be a must follow for me.
Good luck fellow taler!

Good luck for the coming months Jaden and hopefuly you'll be able to show that 'dwarf friend of yours' the real art of war
GLORY TO THE DICE GODS!
I am hoping by following you fantasy buffs, it will incourage me to get back into fantasy. Good luck and I will be watching
Going to paint the first 20 spearmen with full command (205pts) in september so this is the pic of the 20 men ready for paint. They do have shields but I am painting those separately, then sticking them on at the end.
Thanks for the replies so far, I will try not to disappoint. The aim is to paint more than one model a month so this thread doesnt get too boring by teclis being 2 months by himself. It probably means the points per month target will be miles away but I'll try.
See you soon
I'll be following this
I believe they are GW movement trays, I seem to remember painting a couple for our in store armies.
