Fantastic, the figures look great in such numbers and your flags really add to the look. You may convert me to 10x5cm bases yet!

2016 Painting Competition - People's Choice!


About time I added a few photo's and comments about my own progress. I now have DragonMen, Orcs and Goblins and Barbarian armies so I thought I would start work on my High Elves. Happily for me, this morning my friendly (but very wet) Postie, Pete bought me a little bag filled with Pendraken goodies, extra Optional Units' for some of my existing armies and the extra High Elf archers I was short of.  However I have made a start on the High Elves. This will be very much an elite force with good quality General and Mage units, all the core units will be upgraded with Fierce for the Knights, Powerful for the Archers and Resolute (and possibly Shieldwall) for the Warriors.
First up a photo of the Elf Knights and a unit of Guard Archer with swordsmen on the front row, archers behind.

Next we have the Mage unit with portable/inflatable standing stones with Unicorns in support.

finally so far we have the Ballista and crew with a unit of scouts. The scouts are actually Wood Elf Archers which seem to do the job nicely.

On the painting table at the moment are two units of spearmen/warriors, two units of archers to follow soon. The one unit I am stuck on is the General. Having spotted that the High Elf General has MT 2, making him faster than most it would make sense to have him as a group of mounted figures but I am not too sure about just using more Knights? Any suggestions?

Oh very nice indeed Bodvoc!

I do think the blue/chocolate brown combo works so well.  (I've used it in a couple of my armies)
