The Danish Masters and the Angry Elves, part1

So. Long time no see, I guess. (Quite) A while ago, I introduced myself and gave the clear impression that I would be a regular contributor on The Overseer. But for various reasons, I didn’t exactly follow up on that promise, and I instead chose to take semi-hiatus from WM/H for a while.

But as many of you should be aware if you are a regular visitor to this site, the Danish Masters are up, and that means that there is no excuse for not participating. And so I shall!

I will bring my Retribution of Scyrah army, an army that I only started a few months ago, and have little to no experience with. The army itself has made a small appearance on The Overseer before, when I, much to the surprise of both Lamoron and I, came close to actually downing the Big Guy, Terminus himself, in a recent tournament. Including the four games in that tournament, I have played a total of 9 games with the Retribution. So I see no way that this will not end in hilarity and great fun!

My intention with this short series will be to document my progress in getting ready for Danish Masters. This will however not include discussion or testing of army lists. My army lists are fixed, and I have no intention of even playing them before the tournament. I will instead focus on the painting of the models, since I have quite a lot of work to do in the next 10 days if I am to have any hope of making it.

That is not to say that I won’t occasionally mention rules or rant over how amazingly boring I think Garryth is. But it is at least not my intention to in any way revolutionize anything regarding army construction.

So, without further ado, here are the two lists that I will be bringing:

WIP of Adeptis Rahn Shyeel

  • Adeptis Rahn Shyeel
  • – Griffon
  • – Phoenix
  • – Manticore
  • – Sylys Wyshnalyrr
  • House Shyeel Battle Mages
  • House Shyeel Artificer
  • House Shyeel Magister
  • Arcantrik Force Generator
  • Stormfall Archers
  • Arcanist
  • Lady Aiyanna and Master Holt
  • Mage Hunter Assassin
  • Reinforcements: Narn, Eiryss, Dawnguard Destor Thane

WIP of Garryth

  • Garryth, Blade of Retribution
  • Manticore
  • – Sylys Wyshnalyrr
  • Stormfall Archers
  • Lady Aiyanna and Master Holt
  • House Shyeel Battle Mages
  • House Shyeel Artificer
  • House Shyeel Magister
  • Arcanist
  • Dawnguard Scyir
  • – Griffon
  • Mage Hunter Assassin
  • Eyriss, Mage Hunter of Ios
  • Narn
  • Fane Knight Skerryth Issyen
  • Dawnguard Destor Thane
  • Ghost Sniper
  • Reinforcements: Phoenix

It is no secret that these lists are not exactly what you would call “top tier tournament lists”. They are in fact a result of me cramming all the Retribution models that I currently own into two lists. And since my Arcantrik Force Generator cannot be used as reinforcement, that means that only option I have is to take my Phoenix, the only model not currently in Garryth’s list.

But, by no means does this mean that the above lists are just sub-par and thrown together haphazardly. I am in fact quite certain that although they are not top tier, they will do for what I need them to do: Giving me some fun and close games, with little regard to how well I do in the overall standings.

But as I mentioned, what I will focus on here is to get some miniatures painted and show them to you all. As a teaser, here is a teaser Scyir that I finished painting today:

 

 

Well, enough chit-chat. I have an army to paint! :)

I’ll try and post  a few of the other models that I have already finished, along with a few that I should hopefully finish soon(-ish). I’ll focus on getting the models I need to field my Rahn list ready, so I can at least participate in the tournament with a painted army.
