This is another campaign pack like the Tears of Isha one. It involves the armies of Dwarves and High elves, as with the Dark Elves in tears the High Elves in this can be swapped for another race. As I am painting the High Elves for Tears it makes sense for me to do this campaign next as I will only need to paint the dwarf army and a few nominal bits for High Elves.
The Tears of Isha plan has hit a bit of a road block as the age old problem of opponent reliability and interest has risen its ugly head. As always the best method is to do all the work yourself and then hope that someone will come along and want to play the campaign through. My back up plan even for that failing is nearing completion after 10 years of waiting (Ryan's 10 in November)...lots of love.

Obviously I still have lots to do with Tears this project will take a while in its self but i have been building and buying recently (yes I plan years ahead) so I figured it makes sense to start the story and keep it updated as I go. I have been through the armies of both forces for all four battles, I used the armies they used in the play test worked out what to buy and paint up, here is the list, obviously I reuse stuff from battle to battle to minimise models.

Dwarf force:

3 dwarf characters
Runesmith
Battle standard
female character
Giant slayer
15 Iron Breakers Including standard
31 Miners Including standard
31 Warriors Including standard
15 Thunderers
25 Slayers Including standard
30 Crossbowmen Including standard
20 Hammerers Including champ and standard
2 Cannons
Flame cannon
Gyrocopter

High Elves force:

2 Mounted Characters
Character on a chariot
Mage on foot
Mounted Battle Standard
5 Silver Helms Including champion and standard bearer
12 Shadow warriors
48 Spearmen Including full command
30 Archers Including 2 full commands
3 Great eagles
16 Swordsmasters of Hoeth Includes full command
12 Dragon Princes Including champion and standard bearer.
3 Bolt throwers

I am hoping to get on to the dwarf part of this seriously come the end of the year early next year. I have been planning other armies around the Circle of blood (Undead verse Bretonnian) and the Idol of Gork (Empire verse Orcs and goblins) campaign sets but at the moment they are at the very slow process of filling holes in what I require to buy as I tend to try and spot a bargin or gain stuff through trades or painting swaps.

Obviously if anyone is interested in collecting these armies too or maybe even playing in any of these campaigns feel free to comment. I am hoping Grudge of Drong will be ready 2016 ish.

Tears was started over a year ago now so makes sense. I have Buckleys team, High elves, Russians and Pike and shotte on the go at the moment so hopefully come the end of the year one or even two of them will be completed or at a stage where things get added occasionally. I'm looking for the Dwarves to replace High Elves and Black powder to replace pike and shotte. The end of Buckleys team and the Russians will just reduce it down to two projects rather than four....Hopefully.

In my spare time I go to work, lots of love and after asking many builders to quote and having none get that far I am doing the SPAM LINK myself. Chop chop.
