It’s been a genuine pleasure painting these models – Games Workshop’s Wood Elf range contains some of my favourite models ever produced, the Wood Elf Lord with Great Weapon being among them.

For inspiration, I got a copy of the classic Wood Elves army book. It contains some fantastic stories and background ideas. For instance, I never knew Wood Elves used to be able to field chariots (in squadrons no-less!).

Now coming it at around 600 points, the force is really starting to ‘grow’ (Wood Elf nature-pun unintended). I intend to build on this foundation of core troops next month, perhaps with a few special or rare choices.
