PostSubject: My Dark Elves   My Dark Elves I_icon_minitimeWed May 14 2014, 03:26

I've been working on a Dark Elf army for Warhammer Fantasy recently, and I even have a couple of games in (at low points values, because I didn't have many models ready yet). I have to say that it's... pleasant to play games with an army that isn't vastly outmatched, for a change. In fact, elves rule! I have been playing against Ogres, Vampires, Lizziemen, Dwarfs, and the central European powers of the Rennaisance era, but with wizards, so it's a varied mix.

Also, we have been using the rules from the Triumph and Treachery book, and it's more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Good thing too, because a barrel full of monkeys actually sounds messy and unsanitary and it's cruel to the monkeys to put them in a barrel, so that's really not much fun. Triumph and Treachery is much better than that.

This week I'll finally have 2000 points ready and I'm going to begin a campaign against a friend's Ogres. It's a two-player campaign called 'Border Wars' that I bought on my iPad, and we're both really looking forward to it. Smile

Anyway, behold my (unfinished) dark elf army, the Clan of Bo:


Clan Leader: Dread Lady Boanne on her chariot and her two pet Cold Ones, Muchi and Thilda

My Dark Elves PpkJTGi

My Dark Elves 4jkbSzA

Aoifanne the Sorceress:

My Dark Elves Cr5iU9Z

Mhoiranne the Hag and her Cauldron of Blood:

My Dark Elves LWm5fUA

My Dark Elves UulLNCH

My Dark Elves BjiJUqJ

My Dark Elves NO1cQRp

My Dark Elves N8s0NoZ


Princess, Bo's pet Hydra:

My Dark Elves RheMN6k

My Dark Elves FpcFMqK

The Keening Bo's:

My Dark Elves ZTUDdts

My Dark Elves RgTUipy

The Bo Guard:

My Dark Elves TUbW1jQ

My Dark Elves HiMVs8y


The Cross-bo's:

My Dark Elves C8GJOFZ

My Dark Elves 8cSWe0y

I'm working on Aunt Maddie (Bloodwrack Medusa) and and the Bo Piercer (RBT), and should have them finished before Friday. Smile

Erm, wow! These are fantastic, individually and as a whole. The cauldron and Boanne's chariot are the standouts, but really everything is equally well done. Congrats Agatha.

Holy Dark Elves Batman! My personal favourites are the dragons tail fins and the standard bearers.

But as Gob said, just fantastic all round Smile

The Dark Elf models are beautiful and these are very nicely painted too. Well done!

Very impressive! Great work on them all, that's a lot of spiky evilness. Could we see a whole army shot, perhaps? Very Happy

That is a very good looking army! The Medusa looks really good, and I love the clean style on the bolt launcher crew!

That's a very lovely beastmaster. Those whips look like they are going to snap at the worst possible time, though Very Happy

WOW, great looking army! I have an older DElf army that I have never gotten painted, matter of fact I had the same army before,never got into Fantasy,sold off the army..... then for 6th/7th?? edition I bought the exact same army again, complete with 36 witchelves........ I will never get it painted unless I get enthused about playing.... last edition had tooo much bs in it for me, tooo much rules mumbo jumbo..... I do not like a bunch of magic crap ,makes it complicated, I like simple straight forward ......

Again, gorgeous.... hey you should go look up Raging Heroes website,they were going to do a dark Elf kick start.... art looked FANTASTIC(drooling)

I did a pledge for their TGIG Iron Empire army--- may use as SOB '30k' figures..... WW1 looking hitech weapons,women in armor.... cheers I love you I love you I love you Cannot wait for them to arrive,,,

I can just imagine it. You go to put it down for a painting competition and it snags your shirt and suddenly the whip snaps and you drop it and it shatters.

There was a draich master too, but someone took it. Anyway, I don't know why, but I'm not too happy with how these guys turned out. Oh well.

I think the painting is excellent.

Perhaps the overly static pose (I'm not a fan compared to a lot of the dark elves fantastic aesthetic) is bringing it down?

The banner in particular I think has excellent shading to it.

Thanks! And yeah, maybe, or they needed a bit more colour. Maybe the silver bits on their shoulderpads should've been gold too.

Edit: Here they are, fixed.

Awesome looking army! I'm particularly impressed with the clean skin tones. I also really like what you've done with the base of the Bloodwrack Medusa.

I chuckled because I know an ork player that has a warboss riding one of those lizards.
