High Elf Army Update Photos


With a busy work week and travel I haven't posted much this last week. However, before hitting the road I managed to take a few photos of the growing (but still small!) High Elf army that I am painting as a birthday surprise. As the kids were out, I threw down my GW battlemat and got out my camera.

This is the first time that I have put the units I have painted so far together to see how they look.

Photos below - with a few more comments later...

I only have a couple of weeks total painting time left, and even that means just a couple of hours per night, so I am going to have to motor on through to finish a reasonably sized army. To do that, I reckon I need to do at least 2 more units - High Helms (5-8?) and Swordmasters (minimum 10, but 20 if I can!)

Hope I can make it!

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Looking super. Good luck with getting the rest of them done on time. At least the Silver Helms and Swordmasters are relatively easy to do fast.

    1. Cheers! I reckon it will be a close run thing but I am determined to see how far I can get...
      I dug out the HE noble with battle standard, and I gave him an undercoat at the same time I did the Swordmasters, but I have a feeling that could be "a model too far!"
      Roll on tonights painting!
