This is the first time I actually see these models.
To be honest, I'm not really found of this style. But I really like the kind of aura around them. I don't know if that makes sense ...

I saw on reddit that you took some dwarf shields for three of them. You should be ashamed of yourself !!!
No, just kidding I think that actually goes a lot better than the triangle ones.

Can't wait to see the rest of the army !

So I'm not really happy with the look of my shadow warriors, having looked over them again. I'm thinking perhaps doing the lower robes in the usual red, the same as the musician. What do people think?

If you're itching to do something with them, and to tie them together visually, sure!

You could keep one as a reminder of the old days and clean the other ones for a fresh start.
I'm not really found of the red and green mix as two main colours. It gives some kind of Christmas feeling that in my opinion doesn't really fit on these minis. I think the red colour as you did for the musician would be a better fit. I'm really curious about what these old minis would look like with a fresher paintjob !

If you decide to paint them, I'll be happy to see what you'll do with them !

It's a very personal thing. For me, I just keep barreling forward. I have more models unfinished then time to paint them. So, I made a 'rule' for myself that I don't go back to models I've finished (other than repair stuff...). I would much rather have a painted model with an okay paint job and another model with a better one, then just redoing the same model over and over. You keep improving as a painter, so there's always something about your earlier models you can do better and which might need fixing. But I also have 120-ish models left to paint and assembleAnd I would much rather have them done than have that one model look better.

Also, it's a snapshot of who you were when you painted them. You can see how far you've come as a painter and how your style has changed over the years. I kind of like that aspect as well.

Of course, if you've got no unpainted models left, then by all means, go for it!

Thanks guys, I think I'm going to do a test model on one of them and see how it looks. I'm very much of that mindset too Rod, but the more I look at the models the more I feel maybe I should do something with them..

In the meantime, not High Elves I'm afraid but my adeptus mechanicus. These are from the start collecting box I bought back in August. Finally got the bases sorted for them. After I'm done with these I'm going to finish off my white lions.

The plasma gun definitely needs a bit more work but I hope you guys enjoy them.

More elven goodness soon I promise!

Really like the colours ! Especially the orange.
Is there a layer of red under it ?

Just kidding. I love the models. The orange is very vibrant, but is also gives them a "desert" feel to me, which makes them fit. And I like the "bronze" feeling of the guns and metal bits. Both a bit scrappy and as if they've been used a lot. And the faces look great.

Just look the other way ;) I understand how you feel. Maybe it depends a bit on how often you use them and what other models you have lying around.
