I first encountered Warhammer Fantasy Battle in the early 1980’s while at Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham, at the Games Workshop store in the city. However, it was only after leaving and subsequently joining a club that I actually played the game.
I played the fantasy battle game (and its sister games) for many years, but as I grew older, I migrated onto the historical scene and dropped WFB like a brick as I came to view it as ‘childish’.
That attitude remained as the game grew in popularity and edition numbers, but of late, a few factors have led be to revisit the game.
Looking for a new fun ‘feel’ to my gaming, I considered the ‘fantasy game genre which is dominated by GW. At the same time, a number of other gamers (old and new) apparently had the same idea and so one thing led to another and I am now the proud owner of a battalion of Wood Elves.!
This Blog series will chart the development of my Wood Elf army; the collecting, painting and performance in battle.
