First run with the new High Elves will hopefully be in a fortnights time, and then again (if I can get a leave pass) at my next WHFB tournament Horned Rat VI. As stated Im using the new book as an incentive for stripping, repainting and rebasing my entire High Elf collection. The new paint scheme will mirror that of my Dwarfs - Ultramarine Blue, Goblin Green & Scab Red. Luckily I have A LOT of unpainted High Elves to practice on starting with 10 IOB Swordmasters.
|The new scheme a WIP and still pretty messy|
|The old scheme soon to be replaced|
Still have a fair bit to do on them but I'm liking the look so far - keeping it darker than with my Dwarfs. Worked out a simple way of painting the gold areas - Vomit Brown, Dwarf Bronze and then Devlan Mud Wash (sorry still using the old names). Basing wise Ill be stocking up on Flower tufts like those below - but in brighter colours - and no more snow.
