Awesome work.  While I never played it, I always admired the Old World fantasy stuff.  Proper Warhammer Fantasy in my opinion.  It's awesome that with new companies and 3D prints, etc. that people can get back to the glory days.

Great looking units, there!  8)

I just took up some fantasy gaming again, after a LONG pause caused by various things, and seeing a post like this on my return to the forum is great!

Looks great! I've been staring forlornly at my never finished wood elf army and thinking of using the models for a Saga:Age of fantasy army. These look like they would sit really well alongside my plastic glade guard.

I LOVE this army. I've wanted to do a Scoia'tael army ever since Gwent came out and I think this thread might just persuade me to put down my 30k project and start kitbashing elves! You did a wonderful crisp job with the Oathmark kits and the the basing really ties the whole visual together!

These are beautifully done, and look absolutely fantastic - the inspiration is certainly very clear too. :)

It seems that Oathmark releases have had a big slow-down after the four books were all put out, which is a shame; I would certainly consider kit-bashing your own cavalry in the meantime, and the Human set would certainly mix well with the Elf trooper kits to make some suitable Wood Elf Glade Riders. Perhaps for extra "swoosh", add cloaks from some Firestorm medieval Knights? I think you can buy individual sprues from various places if you don't need the whole box.

Would you add some Dryads too? Perhaps as Warriors/Linebreakers?

Thank you so much!

Yes I have a bunch of the old metal dryads which I intend to use as linebreakers  8)

Beautiful work on that army! I like pretty well everything you’ve done there, great choice of palette, excellent painting and basing, it just all looks great together.

That's a wonderful looking army. Really evocative. I think my favourite unit are the ?sea elf marines?

Ah, those treemen! I have only two of them, and sadly only one painted (shame on me!).

I like your use of 'earth'-tones on this army, gives a nice Dark Ages-vibe.
