Magnificent conversions and painting! The painted Goblin looks like he's just ran straight out of the books! :yay: Very inspiring!

Thanks all!

For the third instance now, I think I'm done painting Wood Elves for some time - but who knows what's appears on my desk before too long. Needed some reinforcements for a 600pts tournament, which was a decent excuse to throw some paint at a long-unfinished Thranduil and Sentinel (quickly stripped of paint to fit the current colour scheme). With a few points spare, I also decided upon some Elves with spear and bow (or Wood Elves with Wood Elf spear and Elf bow, if you like repetition). Rather than glueing spears on to the backs of archers, I opted for the rather more time consuming method of sculpting some quivers, arrows and bows and sticking them on spear-carrying Elves instead. Bit of a rushed job, but they don't look much worse than the acutal Elven sculpts, so there's that. Oh, and the list also included this little birdy:

Image

Colours initially based on the Bonelli's Eagle, after looking for some time for a species that was more 'interesting' to paint than a typical golden eagle, yet still recognisable as a proper eagle. Ironically, the one thing that initially attracted me to this species - black vertical stripes on the white chest - were the very thing eventually dropped from the paint sheme, as they looked off on the short breastfeathers this sculpt had.

Thranduil - staff had unfortunately snapped again in between pictures, although I was surprised that he survived the tournament as well as the transport to and from it.

Sentinel

Image

Spearelves

Image

And finally, some objective markers - needed three on 40mm bases, which was a good excuse to finally use some woodland animals from war-bases.co.uk that I've had lying around for some time now. Truth be told, those little boars are probably my favourite things I've painted in recent times!

Your piggies turned out better than mine. I just might redo them.

Great job!

May I ask what colours you're using for the skin on the elves?

Truly stunning! The colour scheme of the eagle is phenomenal, Thranduil is very well done, the quiver and bow look very well sculpted and the little beasts are also nice and realistic. Beautiful! :yay:

The eagle looks amazing. I don't own eagles yet, but you've already got me researching eagle breeds for inspiration.

The wood elves look great and the boar piglets are adorable!
