Quite a bit of progress lately.
Perhaps it does not show well, and picture quality is crap (used the phone not a proper camera), but the unit is starting to look the way I want it to.
Now I have to clean it up and work on the details, will certainly be time consuming.
The cloaks are more desaturated than they look here, that light blue has quite a bit of grey in it.

They look great MoN but I guess slightly more subdued makes sense.

Yeah, phones tend to oversaturate images. It's a software thing. And it's either because it makes pictures look better (more vibrant and all that) or because phone reviewers like it and as such tend to give higher scores to camera's which take vibrant pictures compared to realistic ones. It is what it is...

They look great. A unit of PG that size is a sight to behold and a power on the battle field. :)

Thanks Rod.
I just made the unit this big because I could (the freedom of printing your own stuff!) but I doubt I'll have the points in my army to use all the models.

After a very long time, during which I suffered from painting fatigue and got distracted by other projects, I have recently started again painting, and yesterday night I finally completed my PG unit.
You can see it here in all its glory, I very much doubt I'll ever field all the models. But It's nice to know I could, if I wanted :)

VERY nice, a unit worthy of Asuryan's blessing! Hope to see more High Elf projects hit this blog!

Thanks guys!
I am now on to a more relaxing, hopefully shorter, project.
Painting large numbers of small figures with loads of details is tiring...

I also like how you’ve got the halberds angled down in concert.

That's because the guys with the halberds down can only fit on the right hand side, and placing the middle pose on the left is awkward.
