Gathering dust i'm affraid ..... i would like to finish it one day .... so many projects so littkke time.
Although it would fit into this project quite nicely....what with being white an everything.

Heres what we are talking about .... This is what I was doing in 2007!!!! :shock:

Here was my 'concept' work for it.

Image

Here is the my High Elf castle. It is a WIP.

Some thought went into the defence of this castle. The idea of the bridge out to the island tower is to give a field of fire down onto attackers on the causeway and attacking the walls. The causeway itself has a shoulder high wall so that spearelves are provided with complete flank protection when the occupy the causeway forcing opponents to take them on from the front. There is also a large door in the rear of the castle to allow knights/ chariots to sally forth. Should the gate be breached attackers would ahve to fight there way through the body of the castle and then appear from one of the doors on the upper level and face the troops waiting for them there ...then to gain accsess to the central tower they would need to fight their way through the upper gatehouse and then cross the inner bridge. Giving the elven lord ample time to do his hair. (Yes, I do need to get out more).

Image

Image

Image

My aim is to paint enough archers to stand shoulder to shoulder around the entire wall and enough spearmen to fill the causeway. That is nine men wide 18 ranks deep. I think it takes about 90 archers to do the walls. (so towards the same number of archers if they go two ranks deep on the wall. (But as High Elves WILL NOT be firing in two ranks ....Grrr.)

Re: Harry does Frostgrave

I have just realised I have never posted my warbands in this thread ... Here they are:

Sisters of the frosty heart:

I painted up the Frostgrave Sigilist and Apprentice ...

... and some soldiers to go with them.

An apothecary seemed really appropriate somehow ... and I love the Mother superior as a Templar.

Re: Harry does Frostgrave

So you can't have Santa without Elves ....

So here are the Elves:

First the apprentice: (I convertion to give him a staff)

Image

Then in contrast to the Dwarf warband being predominantly Infantrymen ... I wanted the Elf warband to be largly archers.
(It makes them very dangerous in the game!)

I started with a bunch of old Jes Goodwin Elves ... with added fur trim:

Image

and added a selection of later edition Gary Morley Wood Elves:
Image

I have this guy as a ranger:

Image

These incude a couple of plastic minis one from the very first plastic warhammer armies box set and another from the 5th edition monopose ones:

Image

Image

... and here they are all together: (I think even though they are from different sculptors and different editions they all come together nicely with the same treatment)

Re: Harry does Frostgrave

Did a bit more on the cliff pieces as part of my dungeon tile project .... rebased them, with squares for Quest, tarted them up a bit, added more snow texture to the the new base boards and touched up the old snow.
