Tale of 2 Warbosses - Progress

So far I have done hardly anything on teh TOTW apart from assemble the awesome wolf riders and squigs, I spent yesterday base colouring my 30 goblins and this is what I have come up with so far.

I am pretty happy with the colour scheme as I have always wanted a yellow dominant army, I am unsure about the shields and I need to practice highlighting/washing the yellow to get it right, hopefully I will get these done by the end of the week so I can have 2 weeks to finish the rest of the army in time :P LOL aint gonna happen...think we need to come up with a forfeit...any suggestions?

Warhammer Feelings #1

Hello! I listened to the Bad dice podcast yesterday and it raised lots of questions for me with regard to WFB and what sort of player I want to be. I know I want to win games, winning is fun but at the same time I don't want my opponent to have a crap time...but its looking more increasingly like in order to win you have to play the game to the letter of the law, which is fine I guess, I think it was Gareth on Bad dice who said that if your opponent makes a mistake thats tough shit and he made his bed so he can lay in it...its interesting because I have let people get away with murder on the battlefield, going back in time "takebacks" and all that jazz, I have even let people reroll all their dice because they forgot about a buff or something, but I think the next tournament I go to I am going to play by the rules :P I just need to find a way that I can still make it enjoyable for both players without being a twat...which if you know me will probably be fairly hard for me, then again if Matt Sewell can take down a best sports and finish as top Empire then there is hope. I would like to know what people think with regard to "being gamey" or playing to the letter of the law, do you need to do that if you want to win or finish high? let me know via twitter @jayhopkinson
