Yep, I finally did it. After years of hearing about how Fantasy is the superior game system, I finally decided to take a leap of faith and start up some high elves.

Believe it or not, my first citadel miniatures ever were a box of 10 high elves (the cookie cutter ones) If i can dig them up I'll try to post a picture of horribly painted they were.

I'm going to start out small but I've made my first order.

My army will roughly consists of:

1 Mounted Prince
1 Mounted Wizard
1 Foot Wizard

10 Archers
10 Archers

12 White Lions with full command
6 Dragon Princes with Full Command
1 Lion Chariot of Chrace

2 Repeater Bolt Throwers

My first piece (since the others have not yet arrived) is a dragon prince. I've only done the horse so far. I'm planning to do snow themed bases for this army.

Wow that is pretty awesome. How did you do the grey horse it's self (by do I mean paint in case some sick minded wierdos are reading this.)

Thanks for the comments guys!

The grey was done with a simple codex grey basecoat followed but a thin glaze of black ink and then a highlight of a mix of grey and white.

I'm really not doing too many washes and glazes. Most of what you see is just straight layering. The metallics I did do a few washes on followed by some mythril highlights

i finished the rider last night but was too lazy to take photos. Here they are together:

That looks terrific.

There is nothing (maybe not nothing exactly) more satisfying than taking your time on a model and having it come up as good as that.

I really like the gold, it looks superb, but the horse is a little flat, I can't help with that, I just avoid painting cavalry.

Yeah the horse just has a lot of flat areas on the model. Not much i can do about that =\

I've got the model fully based at least :D
