Awakening of the Woods – part 3

I have a confession to make, lately I´ve fallen in love with a lot of the old 90’s Games Workshop plastics.
Back when I started gaming I thought they were good for filling out units, but not much else, but a few years ago I started to appreciate some of them. At first it was for the more regimental units such as Empire Halberdiers & the High Elves in the 4th edition starter box.

This then continued onto the other monopose plastics & now I’m not sure if there´s any of these regiments I don’t like (maybe Dwarfs & Chaos Dwarfs).

For this months tale I´ve painted 5 of the Wood Elf Archers, giving me a total of 6, I think these were designed by Aly Morrison, which designed most of the stuff for Warhammer Quest. The paintjob is rather basic but does imo look great from the tabletop, I used a very limited palette with red details as a homage to the red era. I decided to go with goblin green bases for a proper herohammer feeling, although I did opt for flock rather than painted sand.
The mounted wizard has been a welcome distraction in between these elves, I should have him finished by next month.

    1. The whole idea with this Project for me, is to relive what was the golden age of warhammer for me, this includes the way I paint this army, even if a more modern approach would probably look better & be easier to paint.
