Neil of Orange here, with a bit of a musing around collecting Wood Elves – mostly with a focus on Warhammer Fantasy Battle, hope you enjoy the trips down memory lane and my thoughts and hopes for the future. With rumours of a new book on the horizon (only their 3rd solo book ever – I think I have about 6 undead books now) I got nostalgic over this long weekend.
I started playing Warhammer in its 3rd edition. During this time thanks to the rulebook coming with paper cut out units in the back I played with just about every army there was – and pretty large armies at that. The fact they were practically 2 dimensional didn’t matter, I played on the floor and had a huge amount of fun. Every army was in a single book to start with (Warhammer Armies, see below) so access to rules and lists for everything was made very easy. My first foray into actual miniatures was for Warhammer 40K, thanks to the likes of Space Hulk, but as I become more engrossed in the hobby I started considering collecting a fantasy army.
