OMG Spearman Saga

Here's the dilly, it's not really a saga so to speak, it just feels like one.  You ever have that nagging feeling like something isnt right??  And no, its not your significant other, that feeling like your not quite content with a decision you've made...  That has been my nagging feeling.  I like my dark elves alot, and when I finished my spearmen unit, well almost finished it, I was semi happy... but something was missing.  I wasnt quite happy with the color scheme, it just seemed a bit flat to me.

I wont lie, after seeing Brents footdar and the conversions that were done I really had issues with my army being just another vanilla dark elf army and paint scheme.  I wracked my brain trying to find either a way to convert my elves or possibly a somewhat unique color scheme that is within my means.  Needless to say I don't have the means to do a complete conversion for my army so I had to settle into finding or thinking of a twist for my dark elves.

Believe it or not, I found a scheme that I liked, I even used MM(esno)'s tutorial on basing to come up with a base that I liked as well.  Without further ado, tell me what ya think...


  1. I think the spearman looks really good and I've personally never seen Dark Elves done in such a color scheme. I especially like the way the pale metal of the armor looks in conjunction with the darker shield icon and cloth areas. Even without unique conversions, a full army painted to this standard would be awesome.

  2. The blog is looking great and so is your painting. You're improving leaps and bounds man!

    Okay, since it seems you're back to blogging I've got you linked. Hopefully you'll post more... 'cause I'm selfish and want to see more Dark Elf goodness!

    BTW, I've got a ton of Dark Elf stuff - if there's stuff you're looking for maybe we can work out a trade or something.
