So, despite the fact that I've never heard of anyone even using this DP - I've always thought he was pretty cool myself fluff-wise. Figured I'd give it a go and make one (as I never really liked the model of him by GW).

Made him using pieces from the High Elf Noble plastic as well as a few other bits scattered about.

Honest, is it too much? I added the wings, as I thought it looked cool. Should they be snapped off?

Advice / opinions welcome

It looks cool but it's definitely not Aenur.
If you're not actually gonna use him in a game and you like what you've done with the model you should paint him up anyway though!

Great looking model but the wings might be a bit much for him, but not really a big deal. You could write up some fluff that with his high initiative (his wings) allow him to climb better or something like that.

The Wings ROCK! cheers

Whether or not it has gaming possibilities, it is an Ubercool, highly imaginative piece that you ABSOLUTELY have to paint up [or ELSE Suspect ]. Actually, it does have a gaming purpose; i.e., put it on the game table & you'll find all the rules lawyers in the room granting you the power to determine who you DON'T want to play or associate with. It's a fine piece of modeling & a demonstration of a fine imagination. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Alrighty then, the wings will stay. Honestly, painting Aenur is second on my 'to do' list. I'm working on an Elephantaur (pic posted ages ago) right now and then I plan on moving on to this fellow. So, at two models to paint, that means . . . I'll have pics up in about nine years. Smile

Thanks!

PS Honestly - I need another Golden Tom to get me off my butt and paint more often.

I agree that the Aenur model doesn't do his character justice. However, last night I discovered while researching paint schemes that the model does make an absolutely stunning dark elf (a top ten rated GW fantasy model on coolminiornot).

I agree with most of the others that your model is great, but it doesn't really have the feel of Mordheim's greatest swordsman.

I always felt that Aenur was quite dark and grim, sort of elfin witch-hunter. Where are the wings from? They'd make a great elfin glider...

Well, while I agree with you and the grim aspect, I figured such an elf of legend would be (like his people) haughty and stuck up. He'd wear the finest armour, wield the finest weapons, stuff like that. Honestly, the wings I felt just made him look cool and angelic/regal. Complete pointless from a game point of view, but I had a high elf great helm left over and my clippers were twitching to chop the wings off it. Smile

I could just play a harpy warband and make him the King of the Harpies . . .
