I said yesterday about painting up a new army for this year's "Bring Out Your Lead", the Oldhammerer meet up in Nottingham in the summer, and I had the idea to finally paint up the 3rd edition Dwarf Army I've been promising myself since I was twelve. Sadly a realisation dawned on me, the latest GW Armies book is Dwarves which means Ebay prices on Dwarf stuff will be at a premium for the next few months - D'OH!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, time for a rethink. One if my reasons for liking Skaven is that I very rarely see other Skaven armies, they're relatively rare. So, ideally, I'd like another rare army but not so rare as to cost a humongous fortune. That rules out Orcs & Goblins and any form of Chaos on the popularity front and Slann on the cost front. The aforementioned Dwarfs can be discounted at present for both reasons.
This pretty much leaves the three flavours of Elves, both of the Human nations and Undead. I already own a sizeable Undead army but I can't decide if that excludes them or pushes them to the front of the queue.
Anyone want to offer some sagely advice?
