So we have started a local escalation league, the idea is you start building and painting a 500 point army, then add to it to make it up to 1000, then 1500 etc.
I have used this as an excuse to finally take the plunge and do another WHF army and for my sins I chose beastmen.
So my first 500 points :
Bray Shaman - Staff of Daroth, Lore of Beasts
25 Gor - Standard, Musician, Additional Hand Weapons
I went with the big block of Gor as it gets me through a big chunk of the painting. the level 1 with staff so he has a good magic missile to chuck out and when they get in combat wildform FTW!
And the chariots are chaff killers and at only 500 points there shouldn't be much I can't chuck two chariots into and not make a mess.
For the paint scheme I didn't want to go with the usual brown and after having a dose of common sense and deciding to not do them white I went with purple. I want them to stand out and look evil and chaotic. Since the paint scheme is so loud I went with a subdued look for the base, some mud, snow and weathering powers.
