White Dwarf Guides for building and painting an Undead Army

Hi All,As usual I am all over the place and having trouble finding the focus I need to get things done. I think last time I mentioned that I would share some resources I found in White Dwarf that deal specifically with putting together an Undead army. I found those in #'s 142, 211 and 226 (Thanks, Rochie!). So let's tuck in, shall we?Trying to give you a little more of the cover for reference.So they made a pretty sweet army here, using most of the range from the time.3000 points seems like the most fun size of army to collect. For me it seemed unattainable at the time. You can also see that it allows you more freedom with characters. Making 1000 point lists is very difficult in that regard. One thing I didn't notice mentioned in the article was that you can only have one unit of Skeletons armed with spears. Of course I have too many spear armed skeletons because I didn't pay attention to that when I was buying and assembling figures. :pSo all of these issues have guides for painting the iconic skeletons that

The Official White Dwarf Guide to making a 1000pt Army

Hi All,With people in full prep mode for OWAC 2 there can be a lot of angst when it comes to making your 1000 point army list. One tactic would be to just give points to what you want to paint and then any amount over the 200 points per month is just not considered.For the last challenge, I attempted to make a strict, legal 1000 point force. 1016 I think. I ended up adding a lot of stuff right at the end that brought it up to around 1300 and some, War Altar and wizards mostly.We've all heard that the Armies book, and its minimum troop requirements, were designed for 3000 point armies. It's also been kicking around for quite some time that you could just reduce the troop minimums by 1/3 or 2/3 for a 2000 or 1000 point army. Airbornegrove pointed out to me where you can find this in writing, White Dwarf 144.It's a pretty good article on a person's thinking for how they're going to start building an army, and I think what the intent of the OWAC really is, rather than being a straight up painting competition.See,

Realm of Chaos - goodies in White Dwarf

Hi All, This excellent post by Whiskey Priest got me thinking about a lot of things, so I went ahead and started looking at the White Dwarf issues around WD 107 which he mentions.After his post on Renegade Orks I had been starting to think about making my own Renegade war band. Off to the tomes (Slaves to Darkness, The Lost an the Damned) to go back over rolling a war band. I was able to complete my book collection (at stupid prices) a few years ago but the bug to actually do stuff with them had never firmly taken hold. I blame my usual gamer ADD.So, which issues have Relam of Chaos articles in them? Lets see.The first set of articles I found was in WD104The introduction of Slaves to Darkness, the color painted figure gallery that was in the book, and an article showing the process of converting Chaos mutations on your figures, complete with stat blocks of the finished example figures.Then WD106An exposition of Beastmen. I haven't read it through carefully, but I think it is more or less the s
