I have been busy lately working with my Wood Elves for KOW. If you have followed my blog, you know I am a convert to multi-bases, and I am slowly converting my army to these types of bases.
So the next to fall under my scrutiny are my unit of old Wood Elves from Grenadier Miniatures - now produced by Mirliton Miniatures. These are some of my favourite Wood Elves. They were sculpted by Mark Copplestone, and I have two more units that I still have to paint up.
The spears look more like long javelins, but other than that they are spot on in my book. The other units are sword elves (Can you say that?) and archers. The only problem with these minis is that they come with a thick metal base. Initially, I glued them to slotta bases, but this made them a bit too tall compared too the other units.
So I took the opportunity to take them off the black bases and glue them directly to the multi-base. The first step after that was to add putty around the bases to give an even ground texture. Then I painted the base green. I considered brown initially, but since I was not going to use static grass, I thought green would be a more practical choice - as you will see further on.
That is all for now. See you in a few days. Until then, farewell and good health.
