In a previous post I looked at my Dwarf army and where I was at in terms of painting and models owned. In this post I will do the same with my wood elves. It will be done with a Warhammer 8th ed. hat on, so i’ll group them my Core/Special/Rare/Characters, listing out what can be fielded. I’m doing this mainly for myself, so I have a record of where I am at and what I need to do.
It is worth noting that some of the models (tbh the better painted ones) were purchased off ebay, taking advantage of the exodus many players undertook when the warhammer world was canned. I will of course give full disclosure on these. Most of the figures I painted were done in my early teens and suffer from my inability to finish them fully and my early years lack of understanding the need to undercoat!
Including characters and using 8th edition rules, I can legally field around 6500 points (though it is very character heavy). Under KOW it is around 3000pts.
30 Eternal Guard
64 Glade Guard
5 Glade Riders (original 4th edition with lances) – No photos as they are still at my folks
20 Deepwood Scouts
3 Warhawk riders
5 Sisters of the Thorn
2 Great eagles (no photos, as they are in my high elf box) but they match the colour scheme of the warhawks.
2 Spellsingers and Glade Captain
Spellweaver on Unicorn
Glade Captain BSB
Spellsinger on Giant Eagle
Shadow Dancer (no photo at present as the model was upstairs when I took the photos and I missed it – will update this with the photo when I get round to it)
Glade Captain on Giant Eagle (the newer GW model – no photo as it isn’t built yet!)
Glade Lord on Dragon (no photo as it is at my folks – Dragon is painted but not the rider)
Orion (original 4/5th ed version). Again no photo as it’s at my folks. He’s at least mostly painted.
Ariel (4/5th ed model)
The model on the right is from ebay, other 2 are mine.
So basically a lot to do. A bucketload of painting, basing of everything and touching up/finishing off of the older models. With no dedicated painting area and my little one now walking, an innate curiosity and a growing reach, I’m finding it harder to get in any painting time as she needs constant supervision. Hopefully with the weather warming i can set something up in the utility room and start cracking on with this and other projects!
