Since the official Shades are both ugly and in metal I thought that maybe the best way to field them was as converted glade guard, using the hooded heads and taking spare crossbows from the warriors kit. What do you think? If anyone have pictures of such conversion I would be glad, or simply suggestions on what would look good.

I got the inspiration from this HE army, using glade guards as shadow warriors.

I think it's a great idea. Both the GG and GR sets are really versatile with the amount of bits that you get with them. The GG legs are alittle static, but that's not too big of an issue compared to what you get out of them otherwise.

Good luck.

I agree, it's a fantastic idea I think-- Better suited as Dark Elves than as High elves in my opinion too (what with the bandana and hood). Perfect model choice.

seems like a good plan, although personally I dont have a problem with the DE shades models. if you could post some pictures when you do it that'd be awesome.
