Hi, Im starting High Elves and got some Silver Helms yesterday as a good starting point. Since Im only 12 I cant really buy a GW knife to file off the mould lines so I have to use a file which usuelly makes the fine detail look a bit flat . Anywho I made 1 musician, 1 champion, 1 standard bearer, and 5 regular guys. Heres the problem.
*For the standard Bearer Im guessing you just stick the 2 flags on the top of his spear?
*For the Champion who doesnt have chailmail around his legs but has like this cloth/leather around them. Well I got to my 5th Regular guy and there were no more chainmail legs which I was guessing the Chainmails for the regular guys, standard bearer and musician with the cloth/leather belonging to the Champion. Cause I got 2 sets of leather and 6 of the chainmail so I had to give my 5th regular guy the chainmail.
*sigh* I know your REALLY confused after I dumped all of that on you but please help I really want these guys to turn out well [well atleast better than my other junk].
Thanks ~ Dark Sun
Patience is a virtue.
I don't quite understand your problem, it isn't ideal I was annoyed that there were any cloth legs in the Silver Helms.
What you have done sounds fine though.
It sounds like you will have a very nice unit when you are finished.
Would like to see pics if you have a camera...
Well we're yet to buy a digital >.> [lousy family] but my dads phone takes them but thats only 2 megapixel so its not very accurate.
For more information well basically
To put it bluntly I think I put the wrong pieces on the wrong models [I havnt Glued them yet but ] but I gave the Musician armoured plated legs with the same for the Standard Bearer. Then for the Champion I gave him cloth leg armour and for the 5 remaining regular Silver Helms I gave them all armour legs exept for the last guy who had to have cloth since I ran out of armoured. I was just wondering if that cloth was meant to go on the musican or the standard bearer that would make more sence.
I couldnt really tell from the pictures on the box since you could barely see the detail .
It doesn't matter which legs you give to which model. What is important is the helmet dressing (for teh champion) and the choice of pennanst (for the standard) and horn (for the musician). It is normal that the musician has an unarmoured head, so I usually substitute mine for the Eldar head...

Okay, I get it the armoured/cloth legs dont matter and can go on anyone. Yeah I think I've gotten it all sorted out now. I made 1 standard bearer, 1 champion, 1 musician, and 5 warriors I'lle assemble them today!
It doesn't matter what parts you use on which models, as long as you have some way of telling which models are regular guys and which ones are command. Lots of people interchange parts from different kits to make their command models more unique.
With this unit of silver helms, as long as you cna tell who is the champion, who has the standard and who is the musician then it's fine.
Great cause I was worried that the cloth legs only belonged to like the Champion, Musician or Standard Bearer Im glad its just totally random. But would it make more sence if I gave them to the Champion and the musician? and had regular armour for the regular guys and standard bearer?
I ran into a major problem I have assembled all of the silver helm models but one who's legs got lost. Where can I buy new legs from now? Could I pre-order them in the GW? Would my local GW store have spairs? I need help with em :sad:
Plus you know on their torso's how on their left breast they have a little badge thingy I actually took them off cause I think they look like rubbish, is anything wrong with that?
Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it. Merry Christmas!
