Mantic Blog - working slowly

not gone - but I'm just having a hard time getting excited about painting up the elves. I have 1000 pts primed white to replace one of my AD armies for my Learn to Play events at GenCon. My plan is to have them in white armor - using the army painter light shade to do most of the work. Unfortunately I've never liked elves, and my opinion isn't changing for the Mantic ones.

However my schedule is pretty clear until GenCon - so I'm hoping to get these done, then maybe put together the orcs and replace the GW ones, and would really like to make the Ogre chariots as well (though I don't think I can completely replace my GW Ogres with Mantic ones for GenCon, as I only have the base ones I got from the Kickstarter.

    If you don't like an army, don't paint it! The hobby is meant to be fun after all.

    Darklord - that is my normal attitude, but I want variety for my Learn to Play events - plus have another good army for the campaign. I just have to sit myself down to get them done. It helped that I spent the day modelling, putting together chariots, mincers and ogres from my Kickstarter stuff (more to come, but not in time for GenCon :-( ). That is always what I enjoy the most.
