I received my conformation email from the nice people at westwind telling me that I've got my place in the Nationals and all that jazz,
After flicking though the PDF I got to the nitty gritty and saw that they would "prefer" weird war two type models, but as I've only got westwind stuff I don't thinks that's a real biggie, but then I got to the section about painted armies... they want people to attempt to bring a painted army.
Initial thoughts thoughts were "yea no worries I'll have them banged out in a month or two" but then the realisation slowly hit me as I remembered that its at the beginning of October!!
I have about 7 and a half weeks to get the following done:
- Suss out the rules enough to design an army
- Convert a Mech
- Convert the wasp unit that I bought last month
- Paint the lot! its not gonna win best painted but I wanna be in the running!
- Try and get a couple of games in so that I don't look a total noob!
I'm gonna finish basing my Prussian armoured box set as that's good as done all it needs doing is some flock and its there...
As for designing a list well I've had a bit of a gander around on the old net and can't really find anything of substance to give me a leg up on this part so, I'll more than likely try and use some games to decide whats good and whats not!
The designing and converting a mech should be interesting as I've had my eye on Dust tactic's for a while now and they have released the mech out of there big bog game individually so I'll be picking up a couple of these...
now you get three different turrets so that should give me plenty of choice for designing a mech, and they come pre-painted but no doubt I'll re-paint it.
So there you are Operation Nice One is green to go...
So my question to the masses is can anyone give me any tips on this game! LOL
