One of the many gradually growing armies in my collection are the Dark Elves for Warhammer 3rd Edition. I have the majority of the infantry finished (I am aiming for a modest 1500 points), but was still lacking leadership.
I decided on the Champion from Mengil Manhide’s Regiment of Renown as a level 15 Death Dealer, since I always liked the bird of prey he is carrying.
To provide contrast to the largely black troopers in the army and in keeping with my overall colour scheme, I chose the Naggarothi Snowy Owl as the general’s hunting bird.
I also replaced the leader of one of my crossbow units, since ironically he had been one of the few Dark Elf figures without a crossbow on him. Now a suitably armed warrior has taken over his duties.
