So a couple of years ago I started a dark elf pirate ship for a campaign weekend that had some event created units so i made half a pirate ship so you could see below decks to the slave pens(slave units which were essentially human shields were one of the units). So half a ship got built lots of units were built, a quay side was built for the dark riders and shades to sit on and a lot of sea dragon cloaks were sculpted(everyone in the army has one)and then it got left on the top of a cabinet to be pulled down and looked at occasionally. So now I'm running a slow army building campaign based in Lustria, I'm Lustria but I already have a huge amount of painted lizardmen, so what we need is an agent of disruption and an excuse to paint my Lokhir Fellheart army and maybe do an armies on parade board, I'm not sold on the idea of doing it again yet but I do like the shiny medal from the store and I'll probably go to gamesday again if it keeps to this structure.
Here is a link to what I did several years ago.
I even remembered to make the album public this time go me.
What we have is dark riders kit bashed from glade riders, cold one knights, repeater crossbows and glade guard with green stuff sea dragon cloaks(everyone could have a sea dragon cloak in the campaign)
Shades using metal corsairs with crossbows attached
Crossbow men kit bashed corsairs and crossbow men
Kraken(Hydra) heavily converted beasty and handlers (these now need to go on the base with the new book)
BSB converted metal corsair champion
And repeater bolt throwers, the crew of these remain but the bolt throwers have been changed to the original metal ones, because they'll look better on the ship.
Talkng of the ship all the rigging works(I don't know i was having a moment or something).
Anyway back to the plot, when the players face me they roll a D6 which chooses one of 5 different lizardman patrols that are wandering round the jungle, unless you roll a 1. if you roll a 1, your camp is being raided for slaves by those dirty dark elves and you have to play a special scenario. So as my intrepid explorers have already started posting pictures of their finished figures I finally stirred my stumps and started painting here's last night progress.
Below is the rest of the 300 pt force for the first section of the campaign
7 shades with full command and great weapons(yes they can have a whistle and flag now)
5 darkrider with full command crossbows and shields( they can now have shield without losing fast cavalry)
