High Elves

"The rider's cloak streamed behind him, and his hood was thrown back; his golden hair flowed shimmering in the wind of his speed. To Frodo it appeared that a white light was shining through the form and raiment of the rider, as if through a thin veil."

Blue Cloth:
1) Start with a Regal Blue base-coat
2) Layer on a mix of 4:1 Regal Blue:Enchanted Blue
3) Repeat Step 2, decreasing the amount of Regal Blue in the mix each time, 3:1, 2:1, until a 1:1 mix of Regal Blue:Enchanted Blue is reached.

Grey Cloth:
1) Start with a base-coat of Chaos Black
2) Paint Codex Grey over the cloth, leaving the black in the recesses.
3) Highlight the cloth with Fortress Grey.

Silver Armour:
1) Base-coat the armour with Chainmail Silver, leaving the Chaos Black in the recesses.
2) Highlight the armour with Mithril Silver.


  1. Really cool looking elves. Any more planned to come?

  2. I have Elrond & Gil-Galad waiting to be painted, and I plan on getting another Captain and banner too, as well as another box or two of the Last alliance, and some metal Warriors (for the spears)
