The Army - click to enlarge
Sometimes it takes a while to finish a post, the words won't quite come, or I get distracted by something else, but none of my other posts have taken quite as long as this one to finish. This post has been in draft form for the last two years, just waiting for me to finish painting my last unit of sea-guard so I could post it up, but finally I've finished the final unit and today I present my High Elf army for Warhammer fantasy.
The Heroes that normally lead my force
The Mighty Dragon Princes
An ancient sea-elf bolt thrower
The old 3rd ed archers given a new lick of paint and life
I've had a lot of fun playing with this army as well, mostly at the 1000pts and 1500pts levels, the army can put out a scary amount of arrows which can devastate lightly armoured troops, and provides some excellent punch particularly from the swordmasters of hoeth. The army is very vulnerable though and you have to play carefully otherwise your low toughness, lightly armoured troops will easily fall. This combination makes for a great play experience.
Swordmasters and mages
As always with these posts I'll finish with a look at the future of this collection. Well actually it's finished for the moment, everything's painted and I have a balanced army painted to a standard I'm more than happy with. Who am I kidding I hope to add another 5 dragon princes, a lord on a dragon and one of those new flying chariots at some point, but as usual I have no idea when.
