With the release of the new Darkelves army book I found I couldn't help myself and picked up the new assassin model and the Darkelves book. Plus I 'needed' those purchases to get me my free entry into Conquest, one of our local tournaments.
Anyway, I had a great idea that the assassin model would make a great lore master for the Highelves. I really don't like the existing model as his hips look strange, plus, he's firing that weird looking octopus/energy ball. The assassin is in a similar pose once he's straighted up and he's covered in ornate armour which I think fit's the swordmaster look perfectly.
The final pose I settled on. I'd still love to use the great axe and lion pelts to make a Chrace character out of him too, but for now, I've got a loremaster!
And finally the greenstuff work done tonight. I feel that he needs a pouch and scroll and possibly some potions to make him look a little more like a loremaster though.
And last, but not least some WIP shot's of the chosen for my chaos army.
I'm being pushed a bit more now, with a 500 point game coming up this weekend to learn the rules, followed by 1000 points a few weeks after that. Non of the games requiring painted models thankfully, but having the games coming up means I'll try and get a bit more painted for it.
My 500 points that I had worked out for painting roughly consists of:
- chaos lord/sorceror (I'll figure out which I want to paint closer to completion of the troops)
- 5-10 chosen with various weapon options to fill out the points.
- 10 cultists with autoguns
- 20 cultists with autopistols and closecombat weapons.
Till next time,
