Right, after an initial Skirmish with General Von Fleet of the Empire, it appears to me, Trolls need support!

So, they WILL be appearing in this tale, just not in the first couple of Blocks! 8-)

My starting 750pts will now Consist of:

Level 1 Chaos Sorceror
Mark of Slaanesh
Steed of Slaanesh
Enchanted Shield
Talisman of Protection
Book of Secrets (choosing Lore of Fire)
Spell Familiar
185pts

15 Chaos Warriors
Shields
Full Command
Mark of Slaanesh
280pts

15 Chaos Warriors
Shields
Full Command
Mark of Slaanesh
280pts

Total = 745pts

Unfortunately, this does mean a lot more for me to paint! but they are already built and ready for undercoating (and i have shiny Terrain Warehouse movement trays for them!

My Second Block will consist of:

4 Ogre-Taurs
Mark of Slaanesh
Chaos Armour
Great Weapons
Standard
Musician
240pts

Now, i am aware i am 15pts down, but bear with me...

Third Block (least models to paint, i'm having some sort of Wedding thing around the 16th of October, so the less to paint the better!!!)

Giant Chaos Troll
Mark of Slaanesh
265pts

Which brings my total to 1250, see?

What do you think folks??

Well, here are the minis i mentioned earlier, nothing special, except for the shiny Terrain Warehouse movement trays! wooo!

Firstly, the mount for my SOrceror, who is conspicuous by his absence... will have to look harder, or see if i find one at Devizes this weekend!!!

next we have the 2 units of Chaos Warriors:

Followed by the Ogre-Taurs (these guys are Massive!):

Speaking of Massive, my Giant, who some will recognise as the GW staff 2004 Xmas present... :ugeek: :

and, while we are on the subject of big things...

My stand in for Throgg, Thragg Stonechewer... :

Image

No paint yet i know, i need some WHITE Spray (eeeep!) i'm trying to be ambitious with the warriors and Ogre-Taurs, and i am going to go for a white armour, with all the icons and things such as eyeslits a glowing malevolent green...

More pics soon when i get thr Giant Troll assembled, and get some colour on these Doods!

Hey im not too worried. At 750 points I am more than capable of taking a Lvl 1 wizard who knows all the spells from any lores (excluding life) or all of my own Vampiric ones :) Currently looking at the different common magic items to make her better as well :)

You guys are up way too early as well
