A little inspirational help

Hi I hope that one of you can help me; i first got into gaming with warhammer 4th edition but long ago sold everything with the hopes of making myself more attractive to women. Anyway I digress, in either the 4th edition rule book or the bestiary I have a strong memory of an image of a wood elf army, bursting forth from the woods.. if my memory serves me well it featured lovely flowing battle lines I would dearly love to see this picture again as it is the main reason i chose to build myself a jes goodwin wood elf army. So if anyone out there has a copy and could send me a copy I would be very greatful.

Yours
Whisper

Re: A little inspirational help

I know which picture you're talking about. Whilst I can't find that actual picture online, I think WD141 and WD144 are the ones you're looking for, as can be seen here:

Really? I think I missed out on that phase, much to the delight of every girlfriend from the age of 16 until my late 20's who all tried, and failed, to get me to "grow up". :D

Re: A little inspirational help

Ok so the plan is to paint theses wood elves with a distinctly celtic whiff..
I cannot rem the sheild designs that were on the ones in the picture, but i think they had a feeling of this.

I would like to refrence British White Horses in the sheild/banner designs too. Because all of the 80's wood elves I have collected will need to be paint stripped I doubt that the sheilds will survive the process. So I decided what the hell I will print my own!

Attached is an image of a possible idea for a lord/cavalry elfs sheild. What does the collective forum think? I'm planning on printing these in resin at work, and the horse detail is embosed for ease of painting.

Re: A little inspirational help

I say this :

1) Sorry lad for forgetting to scan the picture, I'lle send you the photo ASAP with the articles on Jaeckel's post listed before, you should have it.
2) This looks bloody awesome and I find it a very good idea, wood elves and celtic deigns are always a match. Mike McVey though added some south american touch to his 3r ed army.
3) Stripping plastic Dettol seems to not completely ruin it (though I don't have any experience with the stuff yet)
4) If you do print your own shields...you're going to end compelled to priniting some for this all community...

I, for one, would like to order some of those pretty celtic shields when I start doing batches of Celtic Bog Monsters... lovely stuff!
