"With Fire and Steel, Hooves and Blood!"
At the weekend I'm getting the HE Army deal, so I thought it was about time I had one of these
Army: High Elves
Colour Scheme: Regal blue, with Merchite Red Trim and Boltgun Metal armour
Theme: Inspired by Bernard Cornwell's Warlord Cronicles so using tactics similar to those in the Dark Ages; Massed ranks of spearmen with a few specalist units
Painting Decisions: Armour to be painted a solid colour, then given a wash of Black ink. Blue robes with red trim.
Modeling Decisions: Spearmen to look like they are fighting in three ranks; front rank kneeling, second rank with leveled spears, 3rd rank lowering spears, 4th rank staionary.
Characters: Led by Prince Artoruis (aka Arthur,) Plastic HE Prince. Merlin, Archmage, undecided. Nimue, Wood Elf Spel Singer. Derfel, Converted using various peices. Galahad, Plastic HE Noble. Gunivere, Converted, using HE and DE parts, riding in charriot.
Ok, after looking at the wonderful new plastics, I've build Bedivere and decided what I'm going to do with Gunivere:
Mounted in a charriot, armed with a bow. I'm going to use the HE lord on foot legs, DE female warrior Torso, and the Charriot bow arms. I am probably going to use one of the heads from new Mage sprue.
Oh, and I have to say that the new plastic charriots are wonderful. A bit fiddly to position correctly on the base, but wonderfully versatile and just plain gorgious!
Now all I need to do is build the rest of the army.
More to follow later on :happy:
