It’s autumn and cold winds are starting to blow, so what better time to work on some warriors from the Land of Chill itself.
These Dark Elf troops stem from Mengil Manhide’s Company, a Regiment of Renown in Citadel’s classic 80s collection, sculpted by Bob Naismith.
Well, actually it has been quite balmy the last couple of days, but I have been meaning to try out some Dark Elf colour schemes for a while. I’m planning on gradually building my collection up to allied contingent strength for use in Warhammer 3rd Edition.
I’ve gone for some classic colours associated with the Dark Elves – predominantly black and cold steel with accents in decadent purple and venomous green.
The cloaks of flayed skin have been given just a single coat of pale flesh over black undercoat. Once I have a full regiment together I’ll probably detail them all to a higher level, but for now they look decent (and gruesome) enough under battlefield conditions.
