I'll sign up for this, I guess.
I'd put it off because I'm having the worst (time wise) academic year ever, which has been making me taking longer than I'd like to paint/play with/assemble/etc everything. But I think I'm pretty close to 750 points now, which should be enough to have a baby game or two (I was originally planning on not playing until I'd painted everything but.... that looks like it'll take me too long. I think I'll just go ahead to 1000 points, and then hold the list till it's all painted so I can at least get in a few small games. I do have my first squad of 20 "kind of" painted up now, at least. And my boss with some nobz too.).
I don't know exactly what type of army I want, mainly because I want them all. So I can see myself with a very large horde someday, that would give me a choice of how to make a list for each game. The general idea is to go infantry heavy though, and I think I'll starting with a kan wall type and go from there.
