    High Elves...mantic style.

    well first i would like to say, that though i respect GW i never was a fan of thier H.E. but i always wanted to start an army.

    When i saw Mantics i wasnt completly sold, but i knew that would likely be my starting point. Then i saw some painted, and they looked amazing, took a chance, bought them adnt hey look better in person, even better painted. Here is the story of my High Elves
    First unit.

    I've never really liked Mantic's elves. You did quite a good job here though, keep it up! One thing I'd point out anyways is that the shields look a bit flat. I think that maybe a symbol or rune on them could do well.

    Consider me subscribed, I like Elves, any style really.

    I like them, the read is very dominant though and I think that a rune or device on the shield would break them up a bit, just to make it look a bit less saturated.

    thanks much. The thing about the shields is that im kinda torn,
    1. i have thought about adding a rune but havent decided what color or symbol.
    and
    2. i still wanna keep this army presentable on the table while taking the least amount of time.

    idk hehe.

    first off thank you by the way.
    The thing though about the red is that i wanted it to be that dominant. i did add gold to some of the amour plates to break it up a bit, true that gold sometimes gets lost in the red but trust me...you can tell in person

    i wanted a kind of Roman feel to them and though i might or might not have succeded i still like them hehe.
    And as i said above i might add a rune, but it depends on how quick i can draw them on. I want to keep the army at a fast pase as far as painting and one more step would increase the paint time hehehe.

    Hi, sorry to come to this thread months after the last post...but if you are still working on the elves, I notice that Warlord games produce Roman legionary shields at 28mm that you can buy as seperate bitz...

    Just an idea ;P

    haha

    no problem coming to this thread after a few months. Yeah...i got a lil distracted with 40K and my Black Templars update.

    I did work on some of my mantic stuff before, got my Standard bearer, and some of my archers and a bolt thrower finished before taking a break.

    I think i will spam you guys with some pics haha.

    And for the shields, damn, i wish i would have found out about them before i started my Elves...oh well, i still like mantics shields so no real big loss

    Thanks.

    so yeah....because i have hobby A.D.D. i couldnt help take another look at my Mantic stuff....and have decided to totally re-do the scheme on them. Ive decided to go more of a "codex" scheme as i do like very much the colors they chose, and seeing as not too many people use mantic stuff yet, it will still be "different".

    mind you these are VERY rough as i just wanted to see if the scheme could work. any suggestions would be welcome.
