Bassman other projects

OK, time to waste… some of my off topic hobby projects.
Let’s startwith my first love: Dark Elves.

Like always there is a story behind every army of mine. My Dark Elf Clan still retain the Nagarythe traditions. They claim to be the only real elves and they are very jelous. That’s why they preserved the ancient colors dating before the Sundering. After all, why change as we are the only truly elves?

Due to political decline in the ever changing games of power in Nagarroth, my clan has been placed to guard one of the Northern towers facing the Chaos Wastes. There, deep North, it’s plenty of dangers to train the martial arts of the Druchii and unknown powers ot untap for who is so brave…or foolish to try seize them…

Great mix of dark elves and high elves miniatures, it’s great how a unified paint scheme can bring together the two forces!

Almost like the elves are pretending that they’re not two sides of the same coin…

Would love to see some closeups of the crossbowmen and that unit wielding the massive swords in the background.

Thank you.

As requested, the Sorceress leading the pack of vintage miniatures. The Dark Elf warriors are my very first miniatures ever. I’ve painted them zillion of times. This is my latest incarnation. I use them to fill up the ranks of Executioners when I need to beef up the unit.

More pointy ears!

This is how I made my spearelves. I had a bunch of Island of Blood elves, they are such really great miniatures that I wanted to convert them into Dark Elves. This is the result.

This is the prototype of all conversions:

BTW: this is NOT hair but FUR! After all the fight in the far North, it’s cold up there :grin:

I always loved Cold One Knights. Of course, it’s one of the most iconic Dark Elves units!

It always puzzled me how cold blood creatures can survive in the far North or inside caves but…well… it’s fantasy after all!

As you can see it’s a mix of 6th edition riders with 7th edition beasts. IMO best combo ever…

Some details of the executioners. This was the unit that started the “winter” theme of my army. :hugs:

Time for my dark elf lord on…griffon! Well, the Island of Blood griffon was so cool I needed to make my own version. It’s a fantastic miniature, really, one of my fav from the Elves range.
Not a major conversion work here, I decided to keep it basic. Most of the “upgrade” to a REAL elf was to be made with the paint job.

It was also the miniature that set my army color scheme.
When I painted him, years ago, it was not a classic Dark Elf color scheme, I wanted to remind we are elves from Nagarythe, not purple Vampire count posers :laughing:

Really like the griffon paint job. Looks evil and original :smiling_imp: :woman_supervillain:
