I'm finally getting onto the scoreboard with my first submission.
I am attempting to paint up a Wood Elf army for Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game.
Before the Challenge, I had painted about six warriors, only one of whom I had finished. (It's so hard for me to ever call anything "finished.")
I am now starting in on a fresh batch. In all of the GW sourcebooks and package art, wood elves have a green, blue, and grey color scheme. I was looking for something different. I am aiming for an autumn feel. Here are the early results.
The Secret Weapon Fall Leaves basing kit has proven to be very helpful.
So, one 28mm figure may not be much, but it sure was fun. Plus, I'm no longer being shut out!
Welcome to the Challenge! This is a very fine first entry Andrew - I particularly like the autumnal color scheme you've chosen for this classic wood elf, and punchy orange robes and flowing golden locks. These GW Lord of the Rings sculpts are great and paint up so well. All tied together nicely with those fall leaves - I've not seen any as colourful as those before.
Good stuff, 5 points to get you started, and I'll certainly look forward to seeing more of them.
