Look at the sprues. They are the same but Shields lock a lot of space and there are 3 of them per sprue

I would love me Pisceans.
I got Ambull from Spain half year before new Ambull from GW..
Now I am waiting for Pisceans and Spaniards are loosing revenue :P
(I would but them already if they have 5 poses but there are only 2 of them and I want a smalish band

These been brought up before? I'm surprised there are still sculptors at GW who know how to make a decent horse... ::)

Not a big fan of the Teclis model - not sure what is going on with Teclis himself - it looks like he's just been placed there as an afterthought - not sure if it is the angle of the photo or not but it looks a bit odd...

I like the cavalry the best, they look really good.

We play a fair bit of 9th Age and one of the guys plays Highborn (High) Elves and he's pretty happy that he is finally able to get rid of the horrible 6th edition Warhammer Spearelves he's been using...

The High Elves are beautiful - great detail (with, admittedly, a standard of painting I'll never achieve). That "Celennar" is stunning.

Red Kop - there's a (very) quick video of the model - it looks better from other angles.

The cavalry looks almost good. I wonder if it's just the angle of the photo. lol

(Or maybe the lack of steampunk and skulls?)

That empty suit of armour is extremely well done.

I did not notice the bloke perched on the weird critter's wing. Okay he is floating in front of it.

GW definitely has been stepping up the complexity of their plastic models over the years, and its very cool to see them do something like this with it. Much more feasible in plastic then say metal.


The masked sphynx isn't particularly ground breaking, (kingdom death indeed) but it looks pretty cool.

I'm not a huge fan of "tactical scenery" but that monster is ace. I like the new spear-elves too, although I would be tempted to cut the helmet crests off.

It does look better in the video but he is oddly static. Especially considering the concept art they have that shows him leaping into action

I like the phrase 'tactical scenery' it's a lovely way to say it's bloody useless trying to move it .Coz it'll break.
I'm not a fan of such oversized pieces on a table.It might as well be a roleplay session once everyones put static pieces on a table then It's just chucking dice at  dioramas
Admittedly I'd happily paint one if given half a chance.
I'd just half to do something about that 'Fortnight T pose.' It's a little too Manga for my tastes .
There's a couple of design choices that seem odd but I'll end up with some at some point.As these are the only elves I've been tempted by since the Griffin in the Blood Island set.

My main concern would be what will follow an Elven god if the inevitable power-creep keeps upping the ante for factions down the line. An extinction-level asteroid strike for the Orruks?

I think the Teclis has some potential if you surgerize him to separate him and the sphinx and then just use them as standalone units (put him on a flight stand or just touching a small rock base or whatever.

In theory I mean - you'd obviously have to make stats for them.

Woah, they finally fixed the high elf helmets to look decent, shocked.  Looks a bit like they ripped off the Peter Jackson LOTR design though  lol
