For the first month we need to write up a 1000pt list for your chosen army along with any hobby progress you make. I'll start tonight with my list and a photo of my test model which I'll get painted tonight. So come on people let's see what forces my ogres need to smash.

Liluryath is the favoured daughter of Tzeentch, capricious and deadly she marches south with winter at her back. Frost Giants, ice trolls, ogres and Norsemen all answer her call; she is the ruler of all things winter, the icy winds and storms are hers to command. From a young age she developed an uncanny affinity with the winds of magic and used them as protection from the barbaric surroundings of her upbringing, many a time did a drunken Northmen's advances lead to him being left nothing more than an ice sculpture or a pile of shredded flesh and bone ripped asunder by a torrent of ice crystals. Liluryath's rise to power amused the Lord of Change who relished in the chaos she brought upon the North, Village after village fell and proud Cheiftains bent the knee to a Woman. The Lord of Change fed her power twisting her mind to a blind cold rage that will soon be unleashed upon the world, for she is icy death to all who do not bow to her will. The world will be hers and usher in an age of ice which few will survive.
mark of tzenntch
disk of tzeentch
word of agony
stream of corruption
talisman of preservation
enchanted sheild 455
I'm thinkin of using the body of the chaos sorcerer lord. the head with long hair from the dark elf sorceress riding black dragon and a high back collar from a vampire counts necromancer.
What do people think? do i need to find a more feminine body? i'm really not sure until i get them and inspect them up close.
To represent the disk of tzeentch i'm going to have her suspended in the air above the base and make it look as though she is summoning ice to walk upon, for this i will use clear acetate and snow effects.
If this effect works i will use it to make the enchanted sheild aswell.
One more thing, if anyone has any suggestions for a more feminine body to use that would be great, one that is walking forward would be awesome.

I haven't checked the rules, (because I'm lazy and don't want to spoil a good rant) but what level of fiction counts as a backstory? Could a short paragraph about sharing a Nobel goal to find and capture ancient relics be enough? Or does it need to be a tome describing the intricate details and vibrant heritage of two cultures who just so happen to both love marmite?
Then there's the objective markers. I had three based and everything, but apparently early learning centre animals do not count. Now believe me when I say, that pissed me off! Not because it didn't count, but because the judge seemed to quite like them and even had a little giggle at the hugely out of scale rabbit, complete with cold calculating stare. He just simply didn't mention it. Moved on. Gave no cause to think we didn't get the point. It wasn't till the scores were handed out at the end, that we realised we hadn't got it. Cock.
Im not saying i don't like all the new bonuses you can get. The one for having a fully painted army makes good sense and I endorse It fully. However I just feel frustrated when I know that I'd have been sitting higher up on that results table, if theses little extra points didn't exist and it was entirely down to gaming ability.
Next doubles will be different. My army will be painted like beefeaters, objective markers that are not from the early learning centre and will be in the design of large kitchen utensils. Then finally I will have a back story of two armies on the hunt for the universes finest pastry chef. Nothing will stop us!

So starting my first fantasy army excited and full of anticipation, I set about writing my army list. I dragged yetilover round mine and insisted that he couldn't leave until he'd help me fulfil my dream of being a master of rat wrangling awesome!
2am and we put the final touches on my list, cheers bro. Still excited even the early hours of the morning I started fantasising about a doubles list. The idea of two fully grown men swearing, drinking and crying as they loose at table top games to children. Nothing better. "hang the fuck on!" says yetilover gently breaking my little perfect world dream, "You know skaven can only ever be untrustworthy allies? With any army"
