I always really liked that line - and you have certainly done them justice. 

That lion shield is my favorite of all the old plastic shields Citadel made.

Oh yes, loved those minis back in the day, my favourite Dark Elves ever, I think, even with the garishly coloured metals! *

You've done a great job on these, very in keeping with the originals but nicely muted so as not to overpower the figures.  8)





*I always thought Citadel had formulated the metallic paints then really panicked about where they could use them to get most sales!  lol

Brilliant, very nice colour selection. I've got a load of these I haven't done much with, but it is such a nice range . Probably my favourite of the Marauder models along with the Dwarfs.

Never realised though shields had so much colourful potential. Lovely!

Love them! How did you paint the flesh to be so pale?

Thanks everyone.

Yuber: I use a Vallejo Malefic Flesh set which is really good at getting this pale skin. I used a bluish medium tone for the base and then the darker color for the shading. Then I used glazes with the light colors to layer up to the highlights.
