It's probably a good thing that you're not ordering it in summer then. Snow in july would give all kinds of issues...
Maybe painting tutorials should factor in weather conditions?

Re: Hands Across The Annulii - Avelorn and Chrace

Sometimes I think my choice of provinces and themes is some kind of backdoor wood elf envy... I resolved this issue by collecting both High and Wood Elf armies.

I like them. The red and blue work great together. And the bone armour sets it off nicely. It's a great effect and makes them look regal and menacing.
I agree. The colours are really rich. I see what you mean about the bone Sturen but it still looks good and very striking.

What a labour of love! You've really poured everything into these Icarion. The Gorfan terminator conversion is especially effective. My two favourites though are Skulltaker and Skarbrand. The dark greys are a really nice touch.

Re: Thoughts on Swordmasters of Hoeth (Warhammer Armies Project)

It's thematic that you want a High Mage with your Swordmasters to boost up their Ward Save, but they lack the staying power This reminds me of why Seredain switched from Swordmasters to Phoenix Guard in 8th. Most of the time the SM's (with Shield of Saphery) could raise a respectable Ward save but ...
