One thing I do wish to criticise, the poses - seeing as you put one foot on the logs, they seem to tip backwards, if I may urge you to slightly convert their legs or body so they seem to be more balanced, you will definetely pull it off! Very Happy
Oh, I agree, there is problem with many of those legs and this model on unit filler looks a little... weird Wink But the other models in this unit will look normal. I try to remember it later. I have many GG units to do, so don't worry Smile

The blending is world-class Skav!

Amazing.

The basing is grandiose too.

2 minor points of micro-criticism:

1) I think the poses are slightly unnatural (i know these models very well and that they can be tricky to pose properly though) because the centers of gravity are somewhat skewed on some models.

2) The orange is a little too flashy for my old-fashioned taste.

But other than that, jaw-dropping performance Skavenblight... once more.

Thanks for comment, Tom Smile You know I like flashy colors Wink but I hope the poses are more natural on the other models in unit. Now, you all can see it Smile Complete glade guard unit:

Since I naturally tend to list to port, the poses are fine.
Personally I think Fantasy figures should look fantastic; SO...your "flashy" colors look right on target...actually rather Autumnal. VERY WELL DONE as always!

Wow, I never thought about Woodelves during autumn...I guess they would change their colors to bright oranges/yellows/reds....

That is an amazing concept and great paint scheme Skaven!

Holy Cats!

I have no time for my elves because of those dwarfs I'm currently painting, but I found some time to finish 2 little things - unit fillers. I use many of them in my army, because I want to make 3 glade guard units from 24 minis Wink

The little one is a simple forest spirit. The bigger one is dryad, awaking and very angry that someone has interrupted her sleep Wink More pics you can find HERE

STUMP GIRL ROCKS! That is one VERY COOL, BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED piece. The thing that appeals to me about the Wood Elves is their tie in with The Faerie Court/Folk. The Little One is also an EXCELLENT piece. When you've finally finished the army, if an army can ever be finished, you'll have an AMAZINGLY, CREATIVE collection. Keep us posted on your progress.

I just found some time to paint a new model... maybe not every glade guard unit will need a standard bearer, but it's good to have one Smile

Now you've hit a subject near & dear to my wizened old heart: I LOVE standards. In "real life" capturing an enemy's standard was THE HEIGHT of ACHIEVEMENT, bringing ETERNAL GLORY to the victor & ULTIMATE DISGRACE to the defeated Foe. It's the heart, soul, & pride of the unit bearing it; AND on the gaming table, a splash of color that enlivens even the dullest of units.
Your Sylvan Standard is a LOVELY example of the genre. The choice of colors is WONDERFUL & the execution BRILLIANT. VERY WELL DONE It's a piece my Night Goblins would kill to get their grubby little hands on. thumbsup

I haven't been here for a long time... but now I'm back, as always Wink I try to find more time for hobby, but there are so many things to do Sad

But I have something new Wink


Spellsinger for my army:






And standard bearer, commission work - I have now another WE army to paint... but fortunately, I will paint it green, like most of wood elf armies... Kapitan Hak has converted this one from glade guard bits Smile

VERY COOL! The Spellsinger is dramatic; EXCELLENT color choices...you've got the Autumn colors down pat. The Standard Bearer is equally well done...PLUS I LOVE the Owl. GREAT STUFF! thumbsup

It's good to have you back...you've been missed. How's the Good Kapitan doing? What a Face

Very nice high lighting as always Skavenblight. I've been harboring thoughts of building a Wood elf army, but now that I've seen yours, it seems somehow futile - I would compare my efforts with your achivements... The second standard bearer is great, but I liked the orange colour scheme better - it was perhaps a bit on the garish side, but it was so eyecatching and vibrant!

Thanks Smile

I think the orange-red-yellow colour scheme is better, I never liked painting green until I tried the first time... but my army will be orange-red-yellow as I planned. This standard bearer was painted for someone who wants to have ordinary green elves from the evergreen woods of Loren Wink I will paint in the next 2-3 days a spellsinger for him, my favorite spellsinger with staff Smile and then I will come back to my own army, I began in August a glade guard unit... it's time to finish it Embarassed

It was a long time since I've painted something for my army Embarassed But now I come back and I have finished 2nd glade guard unit. I also started with the wardancers and painted 5 from 13 models I have, but I don't have any pics yet. Hopefully I will be able to finish some playable army this summer Smile Now I have too many ideas - a treeman, wood elf scenery or wild riders... I don't know what I should choose Sad so I paint some metal models which don't need to be converted Wink

What I had to... oh, the glade guard. There are 2 versions of the same unit on the pics: 1st with filler, and 2nd with the standard bearer and another filler.

















P.S. One of the elves looks from behind like it wouldn't fit to the unit - but it's not true, it all fits together, I only didn't notice this when I made these photos Wink But I have to admit it was hard, that's why I like skirmish units more Wink

BEAUTIFULLY WELL DONE as always! I can identify with the pains of ranking up units; that's the reason my Night Goblins are perching on mushrooms...mostly. thumbsup

Thank you for nice comments, the last unit REALLY didn't deserve it Embarassed But I hope the next one is better!

First 5 wardancers:

I hate to post these words, so let's post them on the beginning Wink : "I haven't been here for a long time, but now I'm back and I'll try not to disappear again in the next 6 months (but you can be sure I will and it will all repeat itself again)". This year was good for hobby, but sadly not good for me. But let's think positive, I have a few new warbands, Karak Zorn table and new units in my wood elf army Smile

So. I painted these miniatures in the last 4 months. I hope you like them Smile


Wardancers






Glade riders - more pics HERE






I also made a piece of terrain for my army Smile

WELCOME BACK...there ain't no sunshine when you're gone! cheers
The War Dancers and Glade Riders are BEAUTIFULLY WELL DONE...I LOVE the way you did the horses.
The terrain piece is STUNNING...a perfect accent piece for your Sylvan Folk. I've been into the Spooky Woods stuff myself. thumbsup

Don't let hard times bring you down; I've never had a bad experience that didn't ultimately lead to a positive...just keep the faith & things will be better...I guarantee it. What a Face
