They are the most bad-ass elves I've come across I think. At least the original first age, Silmarillion, let's take up arms against the most powerful god we can find variety, and not the more mopey 3rd age ones. And definitely not the ones from the movies... ;)

That's what I ment;) I have always in my mind the description of king Finglofin (?) dueling Balrogs on his own, epic! I've read the Silmarillion many many years ago, but still some images are strong;)

The big one was Fëanor I guess, though he bit off more than he could chew! The first Glorfindel fought a Balrog at Gondolin. Fingolfin was the real badass. He duelled Morgoth!

There was a few duels between elves and balrogs described. Feanor was indeed the big one, who fought a bunch of them at a time. Glorfindel another. And Ecthelion who fought Gothmog at the fall of Gondolin.

For me, the Fingolfin and Morgoth duel was the most epic one.

I guess no-one, not even Gandalf survived duelling a Balrog, though he did return, as possibly did Glorfindel?

Ringîl left some marks!

Today I want to present you an update of my new general for my private Highborn Elves army. Heavily insipred by Achilles and Leonidas from 300 movie, I called it "The Last Elf Standing!"
There are still some missing parts, I need to finish his shield as well as the base.

Remeniscent of Aenarion too, for me.

Yeah, exactly, I had in my mind the art of Aenarion dueling the great deamons form 6ed Armybook, I can't wait to try him out with some spearmen regiment;)

I love him. The gold / bronze has a very ancient or greek feel to it somehow. And I just love your reds. What's your magic recipe for the shield?

Indeed. Never thought about it. But dueling a Balrog seems to be a deadly occupation. As for Glorfindel, I think it was never fully solved if it's the same elf or a different one between the Silmarillion and LotR.

They certainly look bad-ass enough :)

If I would have to critique something, the water flowing around the base of the spear guy looks a bit off. At least, in how it flows around the rock. It doesn't feel completely natural to me. Perhaps it's the "ridge" in the middle that does this, not sure.

For some reason I feel the Korhil was born to fight Throgg the Troll King! I can’t help thinking of Beowulf too.
