This past week I was able to finish up my 1st Great Eagle for the High Elf forces. Last week he got based, and now he’s all finished up. Anyhow, I really liked how the base turned out. Took a pillar from the Arcane Ruins terrain set, and greenstuffed it till it was a bit more High Elf looking. I have one more Great Eagle to do yet, he’s posed like he’s gliding so I figure it’d be good to have him posted up just a bit higher somehow, not sure what’s going up under him yet though… we’ll see.
This past week I was able to finish up my High Elf Noble/Lord. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out.
I really like how the shield came out 🙂
Then I figured I’d start on my new unit of sword masters, finished up one model, save for the base yet.
Not the happiest with how the sword turned out, was trying something new, and it didn’t work out the best, so I may end up repainting that part…
Finally I was able to build up a base for one of my Eagles. The 2 I run have been using the stock clear disc for much too long now, and it’s time to bring them inline with the rest of the elves.

The pillar was from the Ruins set that GW makes. Just needed to greenstuff over the skulls add a few more cracks, and an elven flair – a decor item from the shield’s sprue.
That’s it for this week, we’ll hope to have the Eagle all painted up by next Friday.
This week I got quite a few hours into a High Elf noble/prince on foot. He’s standing on a bit of a rock, equiped with Dragon Armor, a shield and a Great Axe. I put a lion cloak on him as well, even if he doesn’t really get to wear one. So he looks a bit similar to the White Lions, as that is my largest elite unit, but he’s still different enough to lead Spears or LSG.
Anyhow, he’s coming along quite well, the base still needs a lot of work. The shield is yet to be started, but most of the rest of him is pretty well completed. I’ll have pictures of him going up for next weeks edition.
It’s been quite the productive week, finished up 6 Spearelves this week. The unit is now all filled out at 18, just in time for 8th ed which will push the unit to 28 I’m thinking 7×4 and since their elves, they can still all attack 🙂
I was poking through my elf bits earlier this week looking for a suitable new head for my GameZone Winged Knight I’ll be running as a mounted lord/hero… you know the old High Elf logic, the bigger the hat the more important they are… well his hat’s currently tiny.
Anywho, whilst digging around I started seeing some spear elf legs… so collecting them, and then the bodies, arms, heads, and spears I found out that I still have at least 11 more elves I haven’t even put together yet, bringing my 18elf unit up to 29, 30 with hero. That rocks!! I’ll hopefully even have this done before the 8th edition box set comes out, so that’ll all be new units for me! What a great day!!
Finally with Pictures!!!
Finished up almost 3 spear elves today, just need to base the standard and they’ll be just awaiting shields like the rest of the new spearelves.
Hopefully over the next couple weeks the back rank will be all finished up bringing the unit to a full 18 elves, at least until 8th ed comes out, and then it’s time to bring them up to 35 strong.
Last week or the week before I had finally finished up the last 3 White Lions, completing their unit at 18 strong.
What a crazy week this has been, and a super busy weekend to boot. The wife and I aren’t home all weekend, traveling since Thursday, getting home Monday. Hard to get any hobby time in when it’s so nice out, and our schedual’s keep us moving. I did however finally get my last 3 white lions finished up. A full unit of 6×3 is now done, and I think that’s all the more I’ll run with them, unless the new rules really make me want to run more.
I’m still trying to finish up the larger block of spearelves next, so they’re more complete for 8th, when I want to double their numbers.
I’ll post some WiP pics of the spearelves and the finished up white lions when I’m at home for longer than a few hours.
