Unexpected Additions

So having gone round my mates house and come out the "Games Workshop closet", he seems to have got the bug again and has re-entered the hobby again. He's decided on Skaven which means a couple of things:

1) We're swapping IoB armies - whilst this is more beneficial to the skaven player as they get the use of many rats, rat ogres andweapons teams. It is of limited use to the High Elf player i feel. On one hand the 7 Swordmasters will perfectly fill the number i wanted. The Prince on griffon will be an attempted conversion into just a "Counts as Great Eagle" which appears to be common place and the LSG will pretty much remain on the sprue - no fucking chance am i paiinting them again! There's also a second mage, which i've had in a previously posted army list, but wouldn't want the same posed mage.

2) I'll have a regular game buddy - This is great for me to get to grips with the rules - even if i know he creates really competitive list and skaven aren't exactly known for their fair play - dirty rats!

He's also given me a few High Elf bits he'd bought for himself many moon ago. This has blessed my paint table with enough archers to fill out the regiments i'd planned and enabled me to create a Mounted general and kit bash a mage on foot.

So even though i said i'd probably paint the RBT next, i'm gonna go with the general and kit bashed mage - The dragon will wait for a while since he's missing a front and rear leg...oh well...

Here's the general and his horse:

Not much in the way of modelling options to talk about here - merely a great weapon and shield.

The mage however was a combination of archer legs, and mage bits from the dragon kit - seemed daft not to use them to be fair!
In other news - i have now finished University and passed which is great news! however, i'm now searching for a job to enable me to pay rent over the summer which is proving to be not so great a prospect! If nothing is heard from nice friendly job people, expect these to be started come Monday!
