Diary of a Dryad...

The local Games Workshop in Shrewsbury is having a competition based on Warhammer Fantasy Battalion Box-sets.

Basically you paint over the course of a month a battalion, a hero and a wizard. At the end of the month entries are judged and battles are fought using the figures painted. Handicaps are introduced to even out the army scores to ensure fair play.

I have always liked the look of the Wood Elves but never rated them as a fighting force, and the competition has helped me to come up with an excuse to own some. Having spent a day and a half basing and building the figures I have started by painting a 'test' dryad. The wood elf fluff states that the elves reflect the seasons of the forest in the colours and their appearance. I have decided to go for an autumnal look.

These are pictures of the 'test' dryad that I completed earlier today.

  1. Looks like that evil Raggety from Rupert the Bear - lets hope there's a forest fire!
