Welcome to Librarium Online!
I got some appetite for painting up a fantasy army since loads of people at my new work are into it aswell. I chose Dark Elves.
I've bought the Dark Elf Battalion Box, 10 Executioners with Command, 10 Black Guards with Command and a Supreme Sorceress. Nothing is painted yet because I plan to assemble everything first so I can play with them as fast as possible then put some paint on them. I will start to paint one guy tomorrow though just to try out a color scheme I got in mind and see how it works.
Here is a list of everything showing my progress. This will be heavily updated with pictures whenever I make progress. PEACE!

Ow, now, looky looky. That really works, what colours did you use?
Looking forward to see more. I do have to say the units are rather small though. Isn't the x-bow kit the same as the spearelves kit? If so it might be better to take 10 x-bows and add 6 more spearelves. Units of 10 combat units worked pretty well in 7th edition, but in 8th they will eventually need to be bigger, 15 to 20.
That armour looks good so far, looking forward for more scumb...ahem, Dark Elves
Any thoughts about adding an Hydra? I've always liked the model and I've loved the thought of bringing one to battle, when my mind wanders at the bad cousins' place.
My project log: High Elves (and other stuff actually, but mainly High Elves).

Great stuff. I really like the purple armour, it works well for Dark Elves. However, unlike many Druchii colour schemes it is brighter and different. Nice work. I look forward to following it.
That's a good colour scheme you have there, well done and executed. It will be good to see models completed using this method.
