    Do not make the blade an extension of yourself, for a weapon does not think or feel it only acts.

    A friend of mine back in Tennessee started a Slaaneshi Wood Elves army. He mixed Glade Guard and Dark Elves spearmen sprues. His Glade Riders had crossbows from the DEs and torsos and capes from the Glade Rider box.

    He painted them all in dark blues, violets, and purples. It was a cool army that stood out visually on the battlefield. He used a lot of Dryads which were a pain in the butt to deal with.

    I've heard of people doing crazy things like Desert Elves, too.

    What ideas have you had?

    yeah man, go for it if that's what your into (that reminds me of this awesome song...)

    anyways it wouldn't effect gameplay, but you could probably make up some cool fluff with it (idk how accurate it would be offically though, but who cares ), as well as model and paint them in cool ways (like david mentioned).

    Go for it, if that's what your into

    That's a cool pic. Though, I think the model itself is a little 'muscular' for an elf.

    What wrong with an elf working our a bit more. We need a few more muscular elfs so they can go on rampages like Orion.

    I think the model looks more like it was a deamonette or something, but actually- that looks really good. Maybe her corruption has caused a bulking out of her muscles or she just seems large and imposing because of her palapable evil. Who knows?

    Anyways- exiled and corrupted are two different things. Exiled elves might have been misjudges or just made some noble angry. They might not be 'evil'. Corrupted elves are going to be evil.

    I don't think that even Evil woodelves would start wearing armor. I think they'd stick to their leather patches and wood. So DE parts wouldn't go over as well in my books. Maybe some of the scaly cloaks and stuff, to represent a leaning towards more "unfriendly" creatures like alligators and what-not.

    My army represesnts a band of woodelves who took up residence in an Imperial Forest. Their forest was burnt to the ground however, by a catastrophic failure in one of the Imperial foundries nearby. My army is based with gray sand for 'ash' and wears black and grey clothing. They have cloth wrapped around their mouths and feature fiery weapons and bright red hair. My dryads are charred and look like burnt trees as opposed to live ones. They have a more menacing appearance, but my mages have green-wood chutes and flowers springing out of the ash to represent that even though my elves are filled with spite and despair, they are rebuilding their forest.
