Looking forward to what you will do with the spearmen, your army has looked so beautiful so far that Im sure they will be great aswell. Thanks for the tip on white too, it really does make alot of highlighting diffrences.

Tee hee, I agree; a very scandelous little High Elf. You sure she's not Morathi before the Sundering? xD

Great stuff here, looking forward to the Dragon. :thumbsup:

Thank you guys :)

I've finished the first batch of spearmen today and I am very pleased with how they turned out.

Again superb work. You are really doing a fantastic job to those hairdressers xD The lines are perfect. If you want to get to the next level though I would start looking more at blending, pulling together the highlights and shade to give some of those metals some depth.

Thanks for your comments guys. My painting has slowed down considerably now since the semester has started again, and there are lots of parties to attend and beer to be drunk so I've been busy :)

However, 6 more spearmen are slowly getting colours on them. I actually managed to finish their armour today.

Also, are there any rules for swapping units? I'd like to drop the 5 reavers for 6 maiden guards if that's OK.

ummm I think it was said to be on base to base, I personally dont see a problem with it. But that is just my vote.

I have finally finished the six spearmen, so now it is 12 down and 12 to go.
However, I'm tired of painting spears at the moment so I will take a break and paint another chariot and a BSB before I go back and finish the unit.

Excellent work on those spearman as per usual. BSB and chariot coming up, does that means the star dragon grows closer? xD

Thank you very much. The chariot is postponed at the moment, and the dragon is closing in...

I've finished the BSB now, in just over two days of painting which much be some sort of record for me ;)
I am very pleased with him, and I appreciate all your comments!
