So give the new batch of stuff about to be released for them I thought I would dig out my old Dark Elf army and take some pictures and talk about them.
First got my Dark elves many many years back, when they were first rereleased, so the same time the current black guard, witch elves, executioner models were first released :P think I was in like year 8 or 9 at high school then haha.
Dark Elves are my favourite fantasy race bar none, love their imagery and back ground and I believe they are one of the finest ranges GW have done. The executioners, black guard and witch elves all still look great even now :)
Dark Elves are also special to me because it is via them that I first got into sculpting, learning how to work with GS via character converting. I completely revamped the army with new colour scheme in around 2005-2006 this is of course when I first started dabbling in GS and around the same time I returned to the hobby.
So enough babbling from me here are the pictures:
The Corsair themed character is based on an old beast master, with the sword of an assassin and cloak from darkblade brought back in the days of the bits service. The GS work on her is showing its age :(
|Executioners, still some of my fave GW models|
|Shades, also great sculpts|
|Corsairs, still prefer these to the current plastics|
|1 of 3 regiments of repater crossbowmen|
|Reaper bolt throwers|
The 2 sorceresses might have the old GS work ripped off and be redone, same with the other characters. Hell they might get some new toys in the form of the new sorceress that is coming out with the storm of magic stuff, possibly even the black dragon too :P.
I still have some more Dark elves to show but I will do that in another post. Thanks for looking guys and normal service shall resume in a day or 2 :)
