The first batch is the Elf heavy infantry. The next batch will be the Elf light infantry, followed by the elf cavalry, and finally special figures like heroes and mages. I had originally started painting these a while back and then decided to change the color scheme. This group of figures was about 1/4 to 1/3 completed prior to working on them this past week. The Elf heavy infantry is organized as eight units of 16 figures. The color scheme is green and yellow uniforms and equipment with red weapons and silvered and gold armor. I need to get a tube of plastic glue to fix a few missing spear points on several figures. Edit: This is the first of three blog posts the other two follow directly by clicking on the newer post at the bottom of the page.
Shields were made from scans of shield patterns that I had and resized and reshaped as ovals in addition to the circular ones using PaintShop Pro. I did not want to use the original shield shape and patterns supplied by Games Workshop. The new shields are printed on heavy card stock and glued to the figures. Most of the shield patterns are sort of floral in design. The guard infantry unit has a white Pegasus on a pale blue background and one unit has an altar with a central flame.
