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.
