Looking forward to seeing a council of light! Keep us posted.

And weren't you working on another phoenix a while back?

I know what you mean about the quick painting. There'd always be something nagging me that they weren't finished. There'll be no problems with them on our tables though.

As for painting Wood Elves. 500pts of mercenaries would be cool...

Going to finish this wizard tomorrow (too pissed for painting today) then probably the 3rd bolt thrower and some more sea guard, would like to get them up to 30. After that some pure rebasing and touching up chips on old stuff along with some slide bases. then I can realistically think about a mercenary force. I'd like to make a modern day skarlocs, so probably a unit of basic wood elf archers, hero and wardancer champion along with a level 1-2 wizard. Clearly a wardancer champion would go against the book but I'm reckoning you guys might forgive that...

Yeah, esp as the wardancer champions arent that good are they? Shadowdancers are lvl 1 wizards themselves for a crazy pts increase.

Thats probably 500 or so pts I imagine.

Only a small update, finished the Wizard I started a while ago, changed him from shadow to light - very subtle!

Heh aye! got one more HE wizard to paint - the plastic one from island of blood

First up tho, getting those 15 sea guard up to 30...

After that I'll probably rebase my old spearmen, not worth repainting them I dont think as they are very old figures. I'd be better off painting up the other block of 20 sea guard... I'd love to have all them painted by the end of Feb then I can start on the cavalry...

Major update time....

Thought I would take photos of everything, even if it had one before as most things are slide based up now

Sea Guard, 30 of the buggers



18 Archers, just slapped on a few washes to give them some more definition and rebased ofc



25 White Lions, not changed but out of a sense of completeness..



25 Phoenix Guard, I was worried the 1st ed and 2nd ed versions might look odd, but once painted the same they are't too bad



22 Swordsmasters, just rewashed and touched up mainly, then rebased



10 Sisters, these haven't changed



7 Silver Helms, old school metal versions



8 Silver Helms, originally the Black Lances from our old campaign



4 bolt throwers! have some of that



Phoenix, mr. spindly as he is known



A quick overall shot, still need to sort my old Dragon Princes, but I also have a new unit of them to paint up too, then some characters and the Lion Chariot and I'll just be waiting for the Dragon!

JTFC indeed. Been very busy. Looking very good too, look a very cohesive force now the bases all match up. Love the Sisters too, look brill.

Just getting everything based up the same really helps make it feel unified, old and new figures don't look so out of place any more. The bases aren't too exciting, but given the sheer number of bases I'm happy!!

Yer right, brings em together a lot better. And I much prefer what you've done with the bases rather than the old school flock.

Maybe grab a bag of dried grass tufts for the slide bases to break it up a bit?

Lovely! Look a lot crisper now and I think the eagle bases make them look so much better.

Reckon we should have a summer mega-rematch?!

Just did them today, first hobby or a while. Had a couple of big renders today so a few spare hours just to polish them off

Quite happy with the high elves now, still got 36 spearmen and 15 archers that I could rebase, but I don't think I can bring myself to spend any time on such old and pants figures. Got a few characters too and a Lion chariot but they are fun things that can come next time we have the wfb bug! Pretty much drawn a line under them now

Oh, and a full army shot when you get a sec would be grand.
