[PLOG] Marauder Dark Elves

Post by With hatred ... »

Hi,

If it wasn't enough trying to repaint my current army I've started painting some of my older stuff, starting with the old Marauder MB1 Regiment. Instead of painting them like the old colourful style I've gone with a similar scheme to my current army....

Hopefully I can get some feedback with the colour scheme before I paint the rest, of which there are many.

I knew they wouldn't be to everyone's taste, I appreciate your honesty.

As long as the colours are ok.

Thanks for all the comments so far.

Model wise I think they look more like dark gnomes than dark elves but they are well painted.
Moding a group of Druchii.net players is much like directing the musical 'Cats' using actual cats. Frustrating, difficult, chaotic but ultimatley satisfying and a great deal of fun.

I can see that one. Now I'm thinking of the D&D Deep Gnomes, what with their fancy for crossbows and summoning massive earth elementals.

Yup definitely dark elves, that's what we had back in the late 80's early 90's. The design development has come a long way since then.

It's just a bit of nostalgia on my part.

Cheers.

I have a whole bunch of these models too, but I painted them as male witch elves (the hair is very witch elf ish).

I love the models, keep going! :)

Cheers Red, do you have any pictures of yours, I'd love to see them?

Since last time I've managed to do another batch of 6 but in a different pose and their shields....

Next up will be the male counterparts, hopefully soon. Then I'll have a go at the command figures.

So that's 20 done now. On the table ready to go are another 10, once they are done I can start the command group, really looking forward to getting them done.

Very very nice indeed. Lets hope swordsmen make a reappearance in the next army book. I´d love to play with such a unit.

I borrowed your idea of mixing yellow and gold btw. Thanks a lot!

Only a quick update with little progress but at least it's progress.

3 of the comand figures are almost done, just need to do a few touch-ups here and there and some black lining. Then I need to think about what to do with the standard.

I remember some of these old models. They date from before I was into Dark Elves -- I was a Skaven player way back in 3rd Ed. Really cool to see these painted up.

You've done a wonderful job on those classic command models :D

Love the colour scheme and the tones you have used 8)

Thanks very much.

The plan is, after the standard that is, to paint up all of the old marauder range. Luckily I can choose from the range and will probably do the Scouts next...

Or make a start on the warriors....

Awesome work there!

I have a bunch of these minis as well, I just added them to existing units for a bit of variety, little bit of conversion on some(spears)

I think maybe half of my witch elves are from this era, love em. Actually two of my charioteers are as we'll. will post pics when I find them
