The whole idea of this stems from the fact that Prinny, McZermof and I are terrible at finishing stuff.
Like most (all?) gamers, we have boxes and boxes of unfinished, half started, finished but now I hate it, "finished and I like it but no one plays the game any more" or "pretty sure I ordered that when I was drunk" armies.
Clearly the only option then was to buy a new army, ACTUALLY FINISH IT and then show it off as how good we are at finishing stuff.
My army of choice?
Prinny and I had been musing over how cool a Greek army would be in Impetus, and this will be the chance to actually do it. I will take the side of the righteous, brave and all around bestest Spartans, Prinny is planning some Athenians and I think McZermof is going totally left field, and bringing Teutonic Knights.
Our plan is to make a 400 point army of our chosen force, and have it done for a competition this year called Veni Vidi Vici, or V3 for short. The competition is run later this year, so there is a bit of time to paint! Prinny and I have been thinking about building it up to 500 points, because to be honest, it is only an extra couple of Hoplite bases!
My starting point is a box and a half of the Victrix plastic hoplites, along with a whole host of the Little Big Men Studios shield transfers. Conveniently, these arrived this week, so I am planning to get on to assembling my first base tonight.
Now, we will play other forms of Impetus too, especially me as I need to learn how to play the game so that I can not look like a total idiot at V3 later this year!
That is enough for now,
