Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

I didn't take a mage. Lesson certainly learnt! Given you've quite a lot of shooting, a Lvl 2 on High Magic with the Seer honour might be idea, to give you Drain Magic, Fury of Khaine and Curse of Arrow Attraction. Yes that's what I was thinking, but level 2 mage for 6th edition doesn't give me a lo...

Re: Andy's Tor Yvresse Project log.

Wow excellent work so far, I really like the replacement heads for the spearmen. The shields are really nicely painted. Looking forward to more updates!
Good luck with your project.

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

I completely failed to conduct the proper rituals over the dice and so lady luck decided to play silly buggers. Not that I really minded, it was great to get a game in with an old friend and share in a bit of Warhammer goodness! My mate there has been wanting to paint his old army the same way I hav...

Hello everyone! Can't believe it's been so long since I posted, but have not had any Elf related posts to put up. Been extremely busy moving house, doing some work abroad and all sorts. However, did manage to finally have a game of 6th edition with my good friend and his Orcs and Gobbos! Unfortunate...

Rumour Engine and Eldar

So I don't know if anyone else has been keeping track of the Advent rumour engine but it looks like Eldar are finally going to get some new releases.

As our brothers and sistren in arms in the grim darkness of the far future I'm certainly keen to buy them.

What does everyone else think?

Re: Henry Cavill on Warhammer

Quite a few are pretty big warhammer fans.

I think Robin Williams is probably one of the biggest, he had a huge Blood Angels army.

Vin Diesel is also pretty big into D&D and 40k.

Re: Elendor's Host of the White Tower

Really like the colours on the dragon, makes it look like something that's just risen out the depths. I'd maybe say the mage could do with a different colour though, to create more contrast!

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

What I love about the unit is how between the unusual colour scheme and the subtle conversions, it has a clear identity of it’s own. Totally agreeing with SpellArcher ! I love them. For the socks, maybe the paint is a bit too glossy and too dark compared to rest of the horse ? But my experience on ...

Re: Azaam's journey to his full painted army

Great work Azaam! The bone colour of the armour is really cool. I think my favourite is the turquoise seaweed. The contrast makes that colour pop so beautifully. They will look great as a unit.

I think I missed it but the round shields... are they from dwarf minis or somewhere else? Hi Nicanor, yeah they are from the old Dwarf sprue, can't remember which ones exactly. The round shield works great with the axe. It's a good find for the looks you're going for. I was just taking a look and I...

Stuff at the start will be more definitely Old World (dwarves, Bretonnians, Empire, Chaos etc) and then it won't be for a while before we start getting the more ou...

It looks fine Olthannon but I’d have been tempted by red. Thankee kindly, yes I am also thinking either red or possibly a navy blue. I like him, and I agree that the axe is a nice touch.
