The plan grows !

So following on from yesterdays pics and provisional list...i have further developed the plan for the army

As i mentioned before, its all being done on a £30 per month budget with any unspent money rolled over to the next month. I have now planned out my purchase list for the project.

I am still torn between the overall army theme though. I don't know whether to go with empire or brettonia as the victims of the ogres dress sense. It's a big decision as the Maneaters will be the most heavily influenced and converted unit. As much as i love some of the gw Maneaters, i don't like the hefty price tag attached to a small unit.
Instead i plan to convert them from the spare models left over from the ogre and irongut sets. I have a box load of odds and ends from empire and brettonian sets so the conversion bits shouldn't be hard to come by.


Models Needed
Ogres x 2 @ £23.00 each
Ironguts x 3 @ £23.00 each
Iron Blaster x1 @ £20.50
1 Slaughtermaster (skrag the slaughterer model) @ £36.00
1 Bruiser bsb (golgfag the maneater) @ £23.50
1 Butcher @ £23.50
1 pack of Sabretusks @ £10.00
Mournfang x2 @ £22.50 each.

That brings me in just shy of £275 (£273.50)

So here is my plan. SB= Starting Balance
January SB £30.00 - 1 x ogres box @ £23.00 carry over £7.00 (£30 - £23 = £7)
February SB £37.00 - 1 x Ironblaster @ £20.50. Carry over £16.50 (£37 - £20.50 =£16.50)
March SB £46.50 - 1 box of Ironguts @ £23.00 + 1 box of Mournfang @ £22.50 = £45.50 carry over £1 (£46.50 - £23 - £22.50 = £1)
April SB £31.00 - 1 box of Iron guts @ £23.00 carry over £8 (£31 - £23 = £8)
May SB £38.00 - 1 box of Ogres @ £23.00 Carry over £15 ( £38 - £23 = £15)
June SB £45.00 - 1 box of Ironguts @ £23 + 1 Box of Sabres @ £10 Carry over £12 ( £45 - £23 - £10 = £12)
July SB £42.00 - Skrag the slaughterer @ £36 carry over £6 ( £42 - £36 = £6)
August SB £36.00 - 1 x Butcher @ £23.50 carry over £12.50 ( £36 - £23.50 = £12.50)
September SB £42.50 - 1 x Mournfang @ £22.50 Carry over £20 ( £42.50 - £22.50 = £20.00)
October SB £50.00 - 1 X Golgfag the maneater @ £23.50. Army complete

Well that's the initial plan anyway. I may look over the purchase list and change the order at some point in the next couple of days.
