Ok so for 15 years 2Karl and I have been going on about playing the Tears of isha campaign (Dark elves verse High elves) , after alot of hot air and trash talking about who would win we are finally aiming to play it out in the summer (probably in the bloodbowl break). We have talked about doing full battle reports from both sides of the field (karl suggests in charater) then posting them up for you all to enjoy.
I've began adding to the tiny bits of painting when this idea first occured and figured I'd begin with setting out my plans and pics of what I have done.

The initial plan is to get a few pitched battles down to learn the base rules and get up to speed also making sure we are happy with all the rules incase a few tweeks are needed. We are going to use smaller armies as we build to campaign size. We are playing 4th ed (hero hammer) as thats what rules set we have.

Image
A unit of 16 spearmen including command group (need to paint banner)
Light armour, Shield, Spear 216pts
Image
Unit contains Champion armed as troops 52pts
Image
Unit contains Mage 59pts

Image
A unit of 10 Archers
Bow, light armour, hand weapon 120pts

Image
Image
A unit of 14 Swordsmen of Hoeth including command group
double handed swords, heavy armour 256pts
Unit contains Champion armed as troops 53pts

Image
Unit of 5 Silver Helms including Standard bearer (need to paint banner)
Light armour, lance, shield, Barded steed 246pts
Image
Unit contains a Champion armed as troops 57pts

Image
Bolt Thrower 100pts

At this time I have done 1159pts with the General on its way. The bolt Thrower and Swordsmen were both painted years ago when this venture was first mentioned the rest I have compleated recently. Once I have the general done I will be sorting my Troll for the legendary team and Lees orc bloodbowl team then back to this.
Hopefully more to follow. :mrgreen:

Looking very good Ragman, with a nice retro feel. Look forward to reading the battle reports from both sides.

Just using the models I've got or kept only adding things I need as I go. Don't see the point in buying new models for ones I already have and fit the bill. Plus painting batches of the same relatively simple model for rank and file is way easier and faster.

Sounds just like me, I collected High elves and orcs and goblins side by side when I was young, £10 a week off to Joto to buy a new blister pack, still got the lot plus stuff I've gained and added over the years. I've now some how ended up with, empire, dwarves, skaven and undead armies on top :? If my current paint rate is anything to go by I'll be long dead before I paint it all. lots of love.

There must be something about High Elves... They were my first Warhammer army too back in 3rd edition days! Saturday afternoons in Watt's in Northampton staring longingly at the chariots... Jumpers for goalposts... All fields 'round 'ere...


... Cough! Ahem. :( :?


Really looking forward to this Ragnar! :D

High elves are kittens. I'll get some snaps of the opposition up soon. It's high time we took back Ulthuan, seeing as it's rightfully OURS anyway.

We are at the moment, do you recommend we don't? I have played a few battles and gotta say I wasn't over whelmed but time needs to be given to these things.

Been a long time for me as well. I had a beastman champion who died in a challenge every single game, he was a legend for all the wrong reasons :lots of love: . BTW love the paint job Robin.
