Didn't really do them with gaming in mind, Hammers, but now I've painted them I'm beginning to think it might be fun to paint a few more and use them on the tabletop somehow. Though my thinking has gone no further than that as yet.
Ill met by moonlight?
We'll meet again
Or meat;
Why not, o Fairy, Meat?

On table tops
With books of rules
In garish hues
And butchers' tools
For Fairy Meat

So down, and eat
And then to war
Wherein the lines
Of fairies meet.


Oh gods, it HAS to be the flu that's made me do this....  :-X

Not the flu, Vanvlak. You like me, I suspect, are a pisser. :)

Not quite what *I*had in mind. Hands up anyone who's read Susanna Clarke's "The Ladies of Grace Adieu" and, more famous, 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell'.

Not read them.
Oh dear, I'm afraid I'm not incontinent either. Yet.  :D

Yes, I'm still reading 'Jonathan Strange ...'. It's a fabulous book, thank God not like all this Fantasy stuff only repeating itself again and again. But you need some 'Sitzfleisch", as we Dschörmans say, meaning you need to invest some time and interest to plough through those more than 1.000 pages ...

I've read them, Hammers (No surprise there when your as elf-struck as me- look at my avatar, for goodness' sake! ;D).

While I love the Foundry Elven Revenants (I have some in my lead pile right now), I too have never been able to come up with a satisfactory way to use them in a game. They're frankly too large in scale to use as Warhammer figures, and Elves have no presence in Broadsword Adventures and those are the only two games I'm currently playing (apart from the other .45 Adventure games, Fantastic Worlds, etc.).

Glad to hear there are some fellow aficionados. Clarke is bringing elves back to being, like in Sheakspear, as they say, fuckers. I like that.

These are both nice entries. Mongo is very nicely detailed as are the rest of his colleagues. The Moonlight crew have some nice details, and the layout is very appealing...makes a great little story. Best of luck to you both.
Victory is guaranteed to the last man standing, but always remember those whom you stepped on to get there!!
