Sounds pretty cool. Outdoor rocks or indoor ones?

Well, indoor rocks, but outdoors.

:lol: lol, that's another option of course. Though I must say that somehow height feels different indoors and outdoors. At least for me, outdoors always feels higher somehow. It's probably the lack of reference points or something like that.

I've finished a lot in the last few weeks. I've not cropped all the photos yet, but we can start with some MM81 Elves.

Good work Shannar, these are Marauder?

Yep, I think all Marauder, though maybe Imrik is after they folded back into citadel.

I've got some archers from the eternal champion range to post too.

I think I prefer that Imrik model to the following one, liking the blue!
My poor Minaithnir is missing half a leg after years in storage and no idea where its gone.

I'll get the archers up tomorrow i hope. And soon I'll finish up 15 swordmasters (12 6th ed, 5 4th edition). I'm working on Telcis as well (one of the 3 I have anyway) but he's going much slower. I might wait to base those until all the movement trays I'm working on are ready though, might as well do that stuff all at once.

You always seem to have several things on the go Shannar.

Well, I've decided to make a commitment to reducing the lead pile to the point where maybe the great grandchildren will be able to handle it.

I've got some 3rd edition mounted elves with bows to primer tonight.

That's an ambitious goal, you sure it's realistic? :wink:

Loving the progress, Imrik with his giant wings is a classic! The blue is very striking

A few more things that were recently finished

I like my preslotta elves. This one had a hard to deal with mold line on his face though. But unlike my other copy his polearm is intact.
Image

So archers from the Eternal Champion range that crossed over to become high elves. Plus some wood elf command. The wood elves got a crazy amount of command models near the end of 3rd edition compared to high elves by the way...

Swordmasters are coming along well. And I did a small amount of work on some warmaster spearmen.

Swordmasters are coming along well. Just the musicians horn, and gems on all 17 to paint. Looking at the number of gems, I'm going to guess about 3 months until I finish...

The Scarloc’s Wood Elf Archers set made a real difference I think. The last guys you’ve pictured are slightly different and slightly earlier perhaps, while still being clearly cut from the same cloth. I have a small unit of them in my army. Nice colourful job on your unit by the way.

I know 4 of them are. I'm not sure what the 5 guys with knocked arrows were though.

Jes Goodwin 1985. There were some heavily armoured guys holding swords too. Bit of a Roman vibe but I see them as maybe the beginning of that huge wave of JG elves.

Ja, JG for sure. I'm just not sure if they had a role prior to becoming High Elves or not. So much of that particular catalogue of HE is repurposed stuff it's hard to say.

Good question. They might be on Stuff of Legends for example I guess?

Looks like they were Noldor Elves (ME32)

A unit of warmaster spears is now "done" Still basing and shields to go, but I need to seal them first, and I want the humidity to be a bit better than the 80%+ of the last couple days.

The first cav unit of the oldhammer army is going well. 4 elves with bows, I've also decided to use 3 of the "Elven Personalities" as a command group for them, and while I'm at it I'll paint one of the wizards from that set to join them too.

It's going to be awhile before I can do pictures. The weather here is not cooperating at all.

Sealed, so basing should be done soon, unless I actually end up having jury duty. The extra travel time for that would use up most of the time I dedicate to painting during the week. I think two units of 15 spearelves come next, but 5 preslotta elves arrived today.

"New" toys and projects are always great to look forward to. I have a feeling we might be seeing some preslotta elves before the spearelves. ;)

I need to finish the riders for the horses, but the bases for those are done.

But these are done. RBT crew is on magnetic bases so they can be removed as casualties.

And all the metal swordmasters. 4th edition and 6th edition..

Nice work, definitely my favourite bolt thrower edition. It just looks like it will put out some serious hurt!

Really like the banner on the swordmasters

Awesome banner for the swordmasters. Will probably also try to make a similar one with a tower. The bolt throwers are also a treat

I agree with the guys Shannar. I especially like the bases for the war machines.
