Updated pictures of my Citadel Wood Elf Army

I took a couple of hours this afternoon to set up and photograph my Wood Elf army again, with the additional units that have joined since last time! Bringing out this many troops onto the table and setting them up reminds me I really must invest some time into getting some movement trays sorted! - Maybe I'll have them done for the next photo shoot. My army has also grown so much that I will probably have to get a proper gaming board rather than just use the kitchen table! Still not much progress on the halfling allies though...

Anyone care to guess what point value this would come to in an old school 3rd edition battle?

Painting halfling allies... Update

I never seem to be able to come up with a satisfying paint scheme by myself. I dont seem to have the colour intuition. Anything that I've painted that looks any good, has normally been copied from games workshop.

Anyway I've tried painting my first halfling. Bearing in mind these guys have been in storage for the best part of 20 years, I'm finding it hard to come up with a halfling-esque colour scheme.

I'm not particularly happy with his brown trousers and would appreciate some ideas!!!


I've lightened his tunic, and darkened his trousers and cloak. Apart from sorting out his dodgy eyes I think I'm ready to go...

I'm thinking of doing 3 different units of 10, so I'll have to come up with some more paint schemes...
