They are the most bad-ass elves I've come across I think. At least the original first age, Silmarillion, let's take up arms against the most powerful god we can find variety, and not the more mopey 3rd age ones. And definitely not the ones from the movies... ;)

That's what I ment;) I have always in my mind the description of king Finglofin (?) dueling Balrogs on his own, epic! I've read the Silmarillion many many years ago, but still some images are strong;)

The big one was Fëanor I guess, though he bit off more than he could chew! The first Glorfindel fought a Balrog at Gondolin. Fingolfin was the real badass. He duelled Morgoth!

There was a few duels between elves and balrogs described. Feanor was indeed the big one, who fought a bunch of them at a time. Glorfindel another. And Ecthelion who fought Gothmog at the fall of Gondolin.

For me, the Fingolfin and Morgoth duel was the most epic one.

I guess no-one, not even Gandalf survived duelling a Balrog, though he did return, as possibly did Glorfindel?

Today I want to present you an update of my new general for my private Highborn Elves army. Heavily insipred by Achilles and Leonidas from 300 movie, I called it "The Last Elf Standing!"
There are still some missing parts, I need to finish his shield as well as the base.

Yeah, exactly, I had in my mind the art of Aenarion dueling the great deamons form 6ed Armybook, I can't wait to try him out with some spearmen regiment;)

I love him. The gold / bronze has a very ancient or greek feel to it somehow. And I just love your reds. What's your magic recipe for the shield?

Indeed. Never thought about it. But dueling a Balrog seems to be a deadly occupation. As for Glorfindel, I think it was never fully solved if it's the same elf or a different one between the Silmarillion and LotR.

They certainly look bad-ass enough :)

If I would have to critique something, the water flowing around the base of the spear guy looks a bit off. At least, in how it flows around the rock. It doesn't feel completely natural to me. Perhaps it's the "ridge" in the middle that does this, not sure.

For some reason I feel the Korhil was born to fight Throgg the Troll King! I can’t help thinking of Beowulf too.

Ulthuan shall not fall!

With Mireadur coming back to Ulthuan.net there is still hope that at least this forum section will not die!:)
Nevertheless, I present you my new unit of shadow warriors / grey watchers. It was fun to paint them, I like the colors scheme - how about you?

Yeah, I used true metallics. I have to admit taht recetly I prefer that way over nmm, simply because I can achieve a good-looking effect quicker than with nmm. And looks more ancient to me, especially on recently painted miniatures;)

I think they are very colorful for a unit called "grey watchers" ;)

I like them a lot. The new colorscheme is great. The green, brown and gold works very well together. As does the blue spot-color. The make for a very badass looking scout unit.

And the bases are great as well. They are orginal, dynamic and help the unit pop. Well done :) I'd love to see more.

The spear hero is absolutely amazing, but what really is astonishing is that you managed to make the somewhat dopey looking old Korhil model look badass! Do you also play with these, or are they more for display? An army of these would be just mind-bogglingly majestic =D>

I do play with them, especially with the Spearlord, I simply love that model right now :)

I'm thinking right now what to paint next, I've undercoated and put the first blue layer on:

1) Plastic dragon princes
2) next 5 swordmasters
3) few dragon guards
4) 8 ushabtis
5)...20 lothern sea guards.

Man, I'm looking for commission painter! :D :mrgreen: :lol: :lol:

Go for the plastic dragon princes! They're models where it matters a lot how they're painted I think (or rather, I really dislike the default GW paintjob on them). So I'm curious to see what you can do with them.

Or better yet, never do the dragon princes and spend your effort on something more worthwhile :P .

Seriously Galharen, after those archers I think you should do an Avelorn-style army, it’d look amazing. I’m sure you remember Gray’s thread?

Oh yes, I remember that army, simply amazing! But it would be too much for me to make an army with the new color scheme.
However, I started playing KoW too and it opens some new ways;)

I'm considering another gym-elf conversion, but first I need to find the right purpose for that gamewise;)

But it doesn't have to start out as a new army. Just add a couple of units every now and then. That way, you'll only realize in a few years time that it became a complete new army when you look back at all the models you assembled and painted... ;)

What I like the most with it, is the fact that the whole model costed me 8 euro in total :)
