Some pictures from Colours

September 16, 2009

Here are a couple of pictures from our Dark Elves vs High Elves refight of Picketts Charge taken at last weekends Colours show. Apologies for the quality, but they were taken using my iphone rather than my camera.

There was quite a lot of interest in the game and you can see some rather more professional pictures of the game in this thread. Warning there’s hundreds of shots from the Colours show here, so the page could take some time to load. Well worth a look though, as Joe Dever has captured the feel of the show perfectly.

Some Dark Elf success at the Southern end of the line. It was short lived and the High Elven counterattack devastated the Dark Elven elite units.

Dwarven Standard Bearers

August 13, 2009

Apologies for the lack of updates, but although I’ve been beavering away at the painting table my camera has been “borrowed” so I am unable to take any “in progress” shots at the moment.

I do however have a couple of pictures of some of my Dwarves to tide me over.

The one on the left is (I think) the standard bearer from the old metal thunderer unit, whilst the one on the right is a more modern BSB.

Both of these Dwarves would be horrified to learn that I am currently painting some more Dark Elves. I’ve 31 of them (13 Xbow 18 Spears) nearing completion on my painting table, plus a handful of Shades under construction. The extra Xbow’s were needed to pad out my army for the MK Massacre, where I’m hoping to compete. Whilst the Spears are needed for our club game for this years Colours show. There will be more information regarding this to follow over the coming weeks, but our plan is to refight Picketts Charge from the American Civil War, only using Dark Elves vs High Elves . . .
