About Time Elves

#1 Post by Morgen »

I think I've found pretty much everything except the dragon. Found the box and the sprues but the dragon is MIA.

Took a while to really organize things. Need to pick out what the first 2k points are going to be and get working on finally getting to painting this stuff.

At the moment it's building/repairing silver helms, and deciding which dragon prince models to go with. I've got like 12 of an old metal and 12 of the newer plastic.

Really hope I used a thin white primer last time cause all this stuff is getting primed black. I am not going to mess around not painting things if suddenly warhammer is back.

I kind of want my dining room back sooner than later.

Ha ha, that is quite a dragon hoard! Seems very exciting though, I wish you luck with it. Why priming black, out of curiosity? I find white an easier colour to work with, especially for a bright army like HE.
Some old has-been.

That's a very impressive collection indeed! Seeing it all assembled and ranked up would be a sight to behold.

Got the unit of spearmen cleaned, repaired, primed and dry brushed with dark grey/grey/white. Went a little heavy on a few but that'll be fine. Hoho!

I apparently never cleaned things the first time... >.>;

Thinking I should do a steel metallic for these and save the gold for highlights and more elite units. The militia can be less elaborate.

That's a lovely army of ghosts ;)

Nice progress. I don't think the heavy drybrush will hinder you when painting. You should still get some nice contrast going.
