    Arhalien's fantasy log of strangely unexplained phenomena

    UPDATE 2/07/14 This log is now alive again: most recent painting (Bretonnians) starts on page 29

    How about that for a title!


    Right, this log will be the site for just about any project I'll do in the future, and will run in tandem with my Eldar log until that's finished.
    The first 2 items on the agenda will be my ToP Wood Elf army, and repainting my High Elves.
    edit: And a Tzeentch mortals army starting page 23
    I've gotn a lot of pictures so this will be a multi-post update.

    Firstly, Wood Elf Highborn (I'll post a final list later)



    Cont.

    Re: Arhalien's general log of strangely unexplained phenomena

    Now, onto the High Elves; firstly, I'd like to make the excuse that my photography makes the red seem a lot brighter than it is and bleaches the highlights. I'll probably find a way around this eventually but I can';t really be bothered atm.
    A mage (painted from scratch recently, not repainted)


    Silver Helms (repainted). The model with the missing lance is the standard bearer




    Right, that;s about it for now.
    Thanks for looking!

    Re: Arhalien's general log of strangely unexplained phenomena

    well first of all make the excuse about the red been brighter due to photography but it looks Awsome and i love what you done with the elements on the bease and the orb she is stood on is really nice!

    the silver helms also look quite nice liking the simple but effect free hand
    the bright red works so well make the excuses but it really does work!!!
    keep up the good work can't wait to see more << (just to clear things up that in my case means a kind of day dream thing and not sarcasm jusy as someone got the wrong idea last time )

    Best regards

    That mage's orb (and attached elementals) looks great but what are you using for flesh colours my friend they just look a bit flat.

    The two of us on our glorious quests to complete our high elves, great isn't it.

    The wood elf lord is just a great model well painted.

    Thanks I'm glad you like the red but personally I don;t like it to be so bright. Ah well, each to his own

    Thanks!
    The flesh is one of my eternal problems. On the mage it's Bestial brown, tanned flesh, elf flesh, tanned flesh wash, highlight elf flesh. Matt recommened it to me and it worked on one of his models, but I can;t seem to do anything about it. The Wood Elf is slightly different, and looks slightly better IMO, but....
    Ah well, I'll work it out in the end.

    @SC: What? :confused: I was trying to go for a muted look on the Wood Elf, and I'd rather not risk it looking a bit cluttered with too many colours; I was a bit worried I'd used too many anyway.
    Thanks!

    Re: Arhalien's general log of strangely unexplained phenomena

    Right, I've finished assembling the first 10 of my Glade Guard, which will be the first of my core units.
    I've assembled the first rank to look as if they're reciveing a charge with swords drawn.


    The list, changed a bit from before is something like this:
    Lords
    Eternal Kindred Highborn, Rhymer's Harp

    Heroes
    Noble, BSB, Amaranthine brooch
    Noble, Scout Kindred, 2 hand weapons, shield, light armour, Hail of Doom Arrow
    Spellsinger, lvl 2, 2 dispel scrolls

    Core
    10 glade guard, musician
    10 glade guard, musician
    5 glade riders, musician
    18 eternal guard, full command, war banner

    Special
    8 wardancers, musician, champion
    8 wardancers, musician, champion
    3 warhawk riders

    Rare
    5 waywatchers
    5 waywatchers
    Which comes to exactly 2000points

    I've also done a few test schemes for my High Elves. I was intending to have the spearelves entirely armoured in bronze armour with silver for the elite regiments only, but I'm wondering whether I should change the spearelf scheme to be the same as the Swordmaster one also shown in the picture below.


    What I have to repaint for them is:
    Lustria Hero with Axe
    Lustria Hero with sword
    Lustria mage with gem
    40 spearelves with 2 command groups
    about 12 archers
    19 swordmasters with full command
    7 dragon princes with full command
    2 bolt throwers.

    Thanks for looking!

    edit: just realised the pic doesn;t show the Spearelf's armour very well. Curse.

    Nice glade guard (they're an awesome kit aren't they) as far as colour schemes go I obviously prefer the swordmaster's but that has a lot to do with how similar is to mine (great minds think alike?).

    Nice work Arhalien, good to see you've started your Wood Elves, now you'll have to finish them (I'm trying to remember the amount of times I've said that then changed armies).

    Cheers,

    Nick.

    @Firestorm: as I've said before, the "great minds" comment is only half true

    @Haggis: Don;t worry; once I buy something I don;t change my mind

    Re: Arhalien's general log of strangely unexplained phenomena

    i'm liking those wood elves, i've always had a soft spot for the hippies but i really like that scheme, also your list sounds cool, all the wood elf armies i've played against never use eternal guard so it's cool to see those models in an army
    can't wait to see more of both armies!

    Thanks Luthien

    Sorry for the lack of updates recently; I'm on a Drama course in London this week, which involves me leaving the house at 730 am and getting home at about 800pm; this week I've stuck about 3 or 4 bits of plastic together

    Sorry, I'm in a bit of a hurry, but I can say one thing: I like your army composition much, especially the Wood Elves one.

    Thanks; I'm probably replacing the Scout Noble with a Wardancer Noble with the Moonstone of Hidden Ways. I just need to hope that I can make it work on the battlefield when I finish it.

    The drama course is going well; tiring but well

    Oh, and on a slightly different subject, my moanings about poor photography may soon be over; I think I've found a daylight bulb (that is the strange, twisty type isn't it?). It was in my bedside lamp all this time, but with the twisty bit inside a more normal bulb shaped bit of glass.
    So, I'll take some photos using that when I have time and see if it helps at all.
