Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

Lovely, they are really coming together now. En masse it is very pleasing that I can make out the details of the models so well thanks to the black and bright high contrast colours you used. I think you have done the models great justice. The cold one came out well, I know from experience that these are trick models to get right!

The base colour is Citadel Celestial Grey, with Seraphim Sepia and Nuln Oil shading and some white highlights on nose, cheekbones etc.

No progress on the Dark Elves in 2016, but since I am starting 2017 off with finishing some war machines, here's my Dark Elf Repeater Bolt Thrower.

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

I was wondering if you posted here!

Great stuff and, uh sorry for "borrowing" your idea of a great paint scheme. I started to redo my own 3rd edition dark elf force and needed ideas and found your blog. Posting about it here so thanks again for the inspiration for great looking minis and paint jobs.

I'm chuffed that I've provided some inspiration for your Dark Elf revival, hadn't noticed the mention. I saw your war altar conversion and already decided to borrow that idea myself!

Feel free dude.

I better get cracking on painting my altar before you surpass it!

All kidding aside your crossbowmen and warriors are great, shame about the standard bearer for your warrior unit.

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

Thanks, @Willmark. I have a complete standard bearer now that I'll eventually paint. In the meantime I might have found a replacement banner top as well though and am doing a little conversion job.

Finished my second unit of crossbowmen this weekend, so my ranged contingent is complete for now.

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

As a replacement banner top for my regiment of warriors I wanted to use something that would tie it in with the horn blower, whose instrument ends in the shape of a dragon/wyvern/possibly jabberwock. More by coincidence I came across a familiar that fit the bill. Added two plastic skeleton arms, and now it is perched on the standard.

Re: Dark Elves by Subedai

Looks great and is a very suitable replacement.
