Picture Perfect Purple


Well maybe not perfect, but purple anyway... Show here with my Ogre Kingdoms army. I'll be taking these fat bastards to the Toronto Conflict. Maybe I'll even win a game, although I don't really care (ok, I do care, but I really just wanna meet some new gamers and reconnect with some friends I've made over the past few tournaments.)

I re-assembled 8 new school dryads that I got from a buddy at GW. Replaced their heads with dryad heads and did a few arm/back branch swaps to give them a little more variety. I think I'm gonna go for a list something along the following lines:

2000 Pts - Wood Elves Army

1 Treeman Ancient @ 400 Pts General Annoyance of Netlings [25] Murder of Spites [25] Muster of Malevolents [25]

1 Branchwraith @ 165 Pts Magic Level 1; Lore of Athel Loren Blight of Terrors [50]
1 Branchwraith @ 140 Pts Magic Level 1; Lore of Athel Loren Cluster of Radiants [25]
1 Branchwraith @ 165 Pts Magic Level 1; Lore of Athel Loren Lamentation of Despairs [25] Befuddlement of Mischiefs [25]

Core

9 Dryads @ 108 Pts
9 Dryads @ 108 Pts
9 Dryads @ 108 Pts
10 Dryads @ 120 Pts
10 Dryads @ 120 Pts

Special

3 Treekin @ 280 Pts
1 Elder @ [20] Pts

Rare

1 Treeman @ 285 Pts

Casting Pool: 5
Dispel Pool: 6
Models in Army: 56

Total Army Cost: 1999

Or perhaps something along these lines, less magic and more Dryads (but just as much Terror!)

1 Treeman Ancient @ 425 Pts General Annoyance of Netlings [25] Murder of Spites [25] Muster of Malevolents [25] Cluster of Radiants [25]

I really like the all tree-spirit idea, and will likely be doing a similar army once my Empire (Estelians) are done. Although I'll probably use Drycha (2 free treesings AND 2 Dispel Dice AND Terror! Sick!) I think that the first variation is a bit better, although you could go half and half and take 2 branchwraiths and spend the extra points on dryads.

Thanks for the feedback Jay!

How many points of Empire do have? Maybe we could force each other to build our armies by playing 500 points, then 2 weeks later, 750, etc...until we hit 2000 points?

LMK if you be interested...
