Let’s face it – even for the casual gamer Warhammer 40k is far too expensive to keep up with. With static wages and increasing household bills can I as a father really justify paying £47.00 for a box of Space Marine Centurions or £40.00 for a Stalker Tank? Could I afford to start a new Tyranid army from scratch?
At first glance, I felt that Data Slates, and Escalation was the final step towards breaking the game. However, it would appear that this may be a way for us older gamers with a shed load of plastic to stay competitive.
I have set myself the challenge of designing a competitive army based on my existing Elder collection. With a spending limit of £50.00, I intend to do some converting, buy a few cheap models online, use Data Slates and paint some of my older miniatures. I will then use this army at the Throne of Skulls tournament this March.
Next week, I will list all of my Eldar models including my initial thoughts for an army build. However, I need your help to improve the list while remaining within my set budget.
So the question remains: can I build an Eldar army for £50.00?
