Adapting a WFB army: Part 1 Age of Magic

The easiest way to get involved in playing one of the three rulesets that The Fantasy Project is working with is to, if you have one, adapting an existing army that was built for Warhammer Fantasy Battles.

It is also an excuse to finally finish two fantasy armies that I have been wanting to get done but never had the impetus to do so. Wha
