OK so my introduction and initial fluff is very wrong now but no matter, its nice to have a decent starting point. Thanks Les!

Well now I have to figure out what devious plot I can stir up in this old Bretonnian city. I think I will change my protagonist slightly to get her to fit in with the new fluff. How flamboyant/rich do we think Munzig is? Fairly rich with a court? I will come up with something later and put it on my pages.

I did try to write the fluff so other people's would fit in, there's still a court as such in Briane L'Allend so there's nothing to stop your vampire hanging around there, I even used your legendary necromancer!

I deliberately kept mine vague, just in case... I'll be able to weave this in from now on though.

No worries Les, sorry if my post sounded a bit moan ish. To be honest the initial fluff I made was a bit restrictive and I have thought of something a little better to fit in with the new stuff. I did like the inclusion of N'Kepit.

So money troubles and onset with evil minions. Beset with peril without a doubt :) Get my fluff cap on over the weekend and make my official intro.

I never thought you were moaning Dan, i should have reread your fluff though before typing that bit (sorry)
I hope i've left plot hooks for everyone, but if i've missed anything please let me know

OK morning everyone

I have been thinking about all this and I have discussed with Paul and come to the conclusion that we should offer some incentive to paint all your army each date other than in gaming terms. Therefore each person who meets all the painting milestones will get a small(ish) prize at the end of the tale (December).

So I will now lay out exactly what is required to qualify. Though shalt:

- Have a written army list (can be hand written, dont care just want some reference)
- Each model on the army list must be represented
- Each model must be painted with at least 3 colours, that doesnt mean you can put 3 paint flecks on the model and call it finished. It must at least look battlefield ready.
- Each model must have textured bases which are painted.

Please note that movement trays are not required to be painted (though they do look infinitely cooler if they are). Also if you have additional models which are created as part of the gaming process (hello zombies! hello etherial dragons! hello other things I havent thought of) these will not be judged as part of the painted army.

This is as much for my sanity as anything as I could potentially have about another 100+ zombie and 10 spirit host bases plus some sort of crazy dragon should magic have its way with me. If anyone feels this is somewhat unfair please say so.

Dont forget I will be taking a single photo of the armies on the 10th, painted or not.
