This is a really wonderful project! I love these old models, and I think your design and colours are very fitting.

A few more warriors done..

This brings the unit up to healthy 17...

The plan is complete a unit of 30 using as many different poses as possible. Another couple of batches and I'll be there.

In the mean time progress continues with the cavalry and I've also started some crossbows.

Your colour scheme looks excellent.

One of the best oldhammer projects I've seen 8)

Cheers. Just wish I could spend more time getting them done!

Saying that there should be a spare few hours here and there over Christmas ;-)

MM72 Dark Elf Cavalry complete. I really enjoyed doing these. The plan is to convert one of the front to a standard bearer but as yet I cannot make up my mind about the shape or design yet :-)
Hope you like them.

Sublime as always 8)

What about a Greek or Roman style standard to go with the helms?

ie.

Something like the Draconarius*:

Image

Or a T shaped standard like the Dark Elf marauder infantry?

Image

More Roman Standards here

Thanks for that TD

You are right again. I'm liking the idea of using the 't' shaped one.

Maybe I'll pinch the one that I did for the infantry regiment below.

Image

I always wanted to do this as a banner like this for them anyway. That'll give me an excuse to do it then.

Cheers buddy.

@ Amboadine - I'll try and get one done soon.

@ CultofKhaine - I'm saving those banners for the next project which will be painting a 5th/6th edition army.

Absolutely beautiful.

Your colour scheme and paintjob puts a new lease of life into those old models.

Have you wrecked any opponents with these Storm Warriors yet? :twisted:

Nobody will play with me, they are too scared lol.

I'm waiting until the crossbows are done before we go on a raid.

Cheers buddy.
