Hello Elf Fans!
Elven Lineman used to be a pretty formidable force in the previous rules. I’ve heard they got toned down a bit in the latest iteration, but I’ve yet to play them.
Gems. I mentioned this before with a Frostgrave mini, but I tried using WarColours gem paint on these guys around the same time I was. I had used their Metallic White base, but didn’t add any shadows in at the time. I thought later ‘I’ll just add some black to the Gem paint and go back in add the shadows!’. Well, that made them a bit too dark, even after trying to lighten them back up later. The gems are pretty small anyways, but next time I will add shadows first.
Color Scheme. I went a bit basic, green and yellow with browns. I do like it better than GW’s scheme, and it looks more ‘Wood Elf’ to me with the strong green.
Facemasks. I went with the idea that facemasks were made of wood, and used a contrast paint I’ve used for wood in the past. Not sure if it reads as wood, but it will do. I’m pretty sure someone else did wood masks as well, but I can’t recall who.
Next Up: More Wood. Elves.
