When youíve finished we can have a battle with my Hawkmoon army...which remains unpainted,haha  ;)

A bit like my Middle Earth stuff, eh...?
 lol ;)

Funny you should mention Hawkmoon, mate, as I am tempted to use Gran Bretan as inspiration for at least one regiment.

Anyways, these chaps are not all unpainted as I have managed to get the first bunch coloured-in.
Off to take piccies now.
 ;)

Well, I was eager to actually see some progress on this so got the first unit painted up, a unit of Scouts, or Seekers as they are called in the WFB 3rd edition High Elf army list.




















They look a little shiny, but are will not look that bad on the table as this is mostly a result of the lamp being positioned a little close during the taking of these shots.

Very cool, a different paintjob really gives them a different look.

Thanks, chaps.
Much appreciated.
 :)

I think these fellas should blend in fairly well as I reckon they look like 'young' Elves, which I see as being just right for skirmishers with the 'older' Elves being more suited to working in a more drilled way.
Well, that is my rationale anyway.

Cheers, mate.

I have made some progress on the further 'regimental' modifications to the spear armed troops and a 'Guard' armed with a halbard. Still a little more to do but getting there, nonetheless....

Thank you, sir.
I am enjoying this project and aim to have each regiment be individual whilst still keep a 'uniform' look to the army as a whole.

The chap on the right is heavily influenced by this Dark Elf....



...who has always been a favourite of mine and will be leading the unit of that type.

The first five conversions/sculpts that will form the basis of the army have now been finished...







The chap with the big chopper in the centre will be the main figure for the Guard Regiment, while the one on the far left will also see service in my OGAM Greek force as the body for a unit of Amazons serving as the bodyguard of Athena.

Now I just need to make a few different shields....
