Hello all, and welcome to my new army blog. With this, I hope to have one centralized place for any battle reports, pictures, tactical analysis, and maybe even fluff for High Elves. My elves have been on the back burner for about a year following me starting Bretonnians, but I'm back at it and revitalizing the army.

I'm going to kick things off right away in this first set of posts with both a report and a couple pictures of my redone models

This was actually my third battle since I started the revitalization project, but my first report. I brought a star dragon, a large silver helm bus, and a big unit of sword masters up against a wood elf avoidance list led by Orion. The full report can be seen here.

I think I screwed up and lucked out quite a bit. I walked right into a really good surround by a shooty wood elf army. The tower did a lot of work, and that failed frenzy helped out quite a bit. I think this battle really showed what the dragon is good at. Or would an eagle prince have done just as well for half the points?

I'm going to finish off the first set of posts with the units I have finished so far. I started with the Sword Masters.
Image
These guys are a mix of metal and plastic. The two kits work really well side-by-side, especially compared to my plastic and metal White Lions.

Image
I usually use the champion model from the plastic kit as my loremaster, so he gets his own picture. I don't feel that I've done enough to distinguish him as a character. Using the difference in the model itself is okay, but I want to do something more, especially after my Bretonnians, who mostly used paint to distinguish characters.

Image
My only other completed model is a bolt thrower, along with its crew. The new one is on the right. The old one on the left looks pretty good, the crew just need a rebasing.
