    A Tale of Four Gamers

    So, my group is running a campaign based on the Tale of Four Gamers article. Each month we get 250pts and £25 to spend on the army. The first month we get 750pts and £50.
    It's becoming fast apparent that 750pts and £50 makes collecting a TK army pretty difficult. Has anyone got any suggestions? (Beyond eBay.)

    It shouldnt be too hard. Start off with the battleforce, and just proxy a 2 skellie warriors as a Prince and Priest for now. (The best Priest model ive ever seen was converted from a skellie warrior)
    Im assuming the money limit doesnt include army book cost, get that too.

    Then in month 2, buy the Prince on foot, and Liche Priest blister. Thats £15 i think, and the remaining £10 for a Tomb Scorpion. On your way to a good list already.

    Month 3, grab an SSC.

    Thats a while away, so ill leave it there for now. Should be a decent force there though.

    would have thought the battalion boxed set would be your best chance, but thinking of that you'd need your charcter models on top. Conversions any good?

    That was what I was thinking, and the GM said conversions were fine, so I have a pretty good idea where I'm going now. Thanks.

    I don't know about the battalion box idea. The cavalry that are included are not very desirable to most people. Of course with the cost restrictions it might just be the only way you can get enough models/points to be effect so. . . .

    They cavalry arent the reason to get the box. The fact that the cost of the skellies + Chariots come to more than the cost of the batallion is why you get it. The Cav (Make them as light) are just a nice bonus to fill points and can be good tactically sometimes.

    Convert, buy substitutes and scratch build.
    I made a catapult out of balsa in about half an hour some time back.
    Use it for orcs since I also got a second hand skull chucka some time back.

    Or do you absolutely need to buy the official models?

    You're playing the wrong side for cheap if substitutes are allowed.
    Minimal, I mean really minimal, sculpting skills would be necessary for the all blue horrors army of air clay.
