Post painted pics of your Elf forces here.  Use a direct link from photobucket or whatever place you store your pics.  If one day we get a new gallery, we can organize all the pictures accordingly.

The blue gems on the golem are something!  I haven't got the technique to get that yet.  Soon.

I had these Crucible Elves painted up to use as Dragon Skull Warriors.  I got'em dirt cheap at a game store clearing out stuff, so I sent them to Brand X.  As usual, they rocked.

Those aren't Crucible elves, they're Leviathan.  And they did an EXCELLENT job on the paint - those sculpts are a little on the crude and blocky side.

If you don't mind me asking, what did the paint jobs cost you?

Thanks for the correction Alex, they are indeed Leviathan!!  D'oh!!  :-[

Standard rate for Brand X is five bucks a model at that level!!  As I'm buying very few new models, I'd rather spend my cash on getting some figs painted.

They are very big, blocky models, and almost size 3 in our game, but until I get Fracesco's Dragon Warriors painted, they'll be my squad, and then later, I'll just have to field two squads.  Cheese.  Swiss.  Provolone.  Gouda, etc.

Good lookin Dragonskulls.  I have about 12 of these myself, and for the same reason.

Only five dollars a model for that quality?

Damn, that's pretty great.  I'll have to look into having them do some work for me... I'm a decent painter, but I'm slow as hell and I don't have a lot of free time these days, either.

I'm pretty sure I've got four or eight of those "Dragonskull" elves somewhere in a box, too, and for the same reason...

Nice paint job on them!

I'm happy with Brand X, hence my pimping them out, and I spend more time just assembling and converting models than I do painting.  I don't even find it relaxing this time of year, and my German Shepherd, Daisy, would rather be out walking me at nights than sittin' around the house while I paint.  Slow time of year.

Had a little inspiration to try some emblems on the elven shields.  Probably about the best I can do.  Also my first attempts at a "snake eye" on the belts.



First try at the cracked look on the golem. . . gemwork needs some refining too, but overall I'm happy with the result.  Have a couple more primed that need paint, so maybe they will end up better.

It's very interesting how you guys chose original painting schemes. I think this gallery will be used not only for the pleasure of seeing nice minis painted, but to get some suggestion about the style of an army. I really appreciated the military green elves with the snake. This choice seems to emphatyse the samourai elements they've got, such as the standard on the back. Nice.
