Well I have gotten my early Christmas present to myself (Chaos, Empire & Dark Elf Army Books) and flicking through them I'm liking what I see. Now anyone who has looked through this blog will probably have noticed two things, firstly is that I flit from project to project with wild abandon, the other is my unrealistic optimism. Coupled together these characteristics mean that I am confident that my 2014 aim (to complete 2400 point viable forces for the three above mentioned armies) is fairly possible.
Warriors Of Chaos
Probably the easiest of my armies to get to 2400 points are my Warriors of Chaos. I've got 32 Chaos Warriors painted, another 15 Beastmen (that will be used as Forsaken) a rather small Daemon Prince (thay can't all be huge can they?) and another 9 Drakul Knights from Black Tree Design who can either be more Warriors or Chosen, depending on the mood I'm in. So the approximate total of painted (poorly and above) is 1100 points with very little upgrades. Nearing completion is some Chaos Hounds and a Chimera, so it's a very achievable target.

Ever since I started gaming I bought lots of fantasy humans as interesting npcs for my roleplaying games and with the eventual hope that a fully formed Empire army would appear. Sadly over 20 years later and this hasn't happened! So i'm going to have to take matters into my own hands and actually PLAN AN EMPIRE ARMY!!!

My Dark Elf army presents a bit more of a problem. 45 models painted. Dreadlord, wizard (of sorts), 3 assasins, 30 corsairs and 10 Witch Elves. Roughly 950 points. I wanted to theme this army around a mainly slave raiding force, all Corsairs & Dark Riders, which is an enduring image I have for them, get in quick, kill most of the enemy, bring the rest back in chains. I have enough Corsairs to make a second unit and enough Dark Riders for two flanking units so my plan should be relatively simple to execute.
