    To add pictures, you'll need a photobucket account or something like that. Once you've uploaded your pics to that, under each pic there will be a list of addresses (email and im, direct link, html, img code). If you click on the IMG code and copy it, you can paste it into a post here. Make sure you resize the picture to large (640X480), just in case.

    Batch painted, you should have this done in no time.

    Pretty nice Elves! They really do stand out, and the white cloaks are very nice. As for the gems, well I'm not too sure about the green, really, but I imagine that the blue will be nice and the red as well. Would you mix them up? Blue for some certain gems and Red for others?

    Do you find it easier to paint 'outside-in'? I noticed that the flesh of the faces seems to be the last area painted, even after the helms and such. Is this just more comfortable for you?

    Cheers!

    You could go half between blue and red and go purple? I think the blue works nicely with the silver and gold, so I'd say that over green and red. Are you going to highlight the grey as well? Also, do you thin your paints?

    I'm planning a HE force at the moment.

    Those look great. I especially like the cloaks

    Do you have any plans for the banner?

    - Thanks! and good luck with your force
    - As for the banner im not very good with painting them so i will probably just go with white background (like the capes) and paint a single symbol on there in blue or black. Hopefully it will turn out looking ok...

    - Yea I think ive decided to go with blue and red combination, i dont really like the green anymore...looks alot like warpstone...
    - The purple sounds like a good idea, ive never tried before maybe give it a whirl on another model
    - I am going to highlight the grey that was just the base coat
    - I normally thin my paints out; i would probably get better results if i did it more often...we shall see.

    - Thanks!
    - Im not to sure about the green any more either and im going with a blue / red combo
    - That seems to be the way ive always painted faces and helmets never really thought much of it, if get any paint on the outside helmet ill just clean it up at the end

    That PG looks the bomb. Well, not a bomb your high elf. More like a PG but just !.

    By the way, I am a DE player and I am so impressed. Now, back to your desk, gets some more done.

    Make sure you get black guard. I think you'd be very good at painting those up.

    Can you do a different colour scheme on them like green or something.

    Anyway, in the meantime. Keep it up I am waiting for an update here!

    Sorry for no update...ive been busy hopefully tomorrow i will get more pics and should be done with the unit by the weekend.

    I think for my future DE project i would go for a black, green and blue scheme them much like the top three pictures on the GW site, i would include more green however.

    That mix of blue and red gemstones seem to suit your army well. Looking good! Keep it up!
