well now I have to reconsider not playing elves  :::cheers:::
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span

I like that the style is familiar, and one that I like. I like the proportions on this helmet better than some of the more elongated ones from other companies ("cone head elves.") Interesting & different curve to the shield.

But I do have a few small criticisms. The spear looks a little short. The torso also looks a little wide/bulky in the torso. At least for my image of a "graceful" elf armour. I think it looks like a more primitive shape. Like the way the more archaic Trojan war era armour looks compared to later classical greek armour -- if that makes sense.

Mixed feelings on the decorative elements on the chest plate.

I really like the shield.

 Thank you guys for your comments!

 Zero we really appreciate your small criticisms. A lots people talk about the spear. It is long enought to don't hit the line behind.



Imagine a Greek phalanx, two lines handing the spear over their heads against the enemie and back lines waiting.



As soon as we got the first masters ready we wouldlike to show them and do a scale test ;)

That hoplite pose is dope. I'd shorten the spear a smuge, but these models look awesome. :smile2:

I like the torso armour on that archer much better.

Looking at the first model again, I wonder if it was the belts making it look too bulky to me.

That Archer looks great. He's a nice mix of high and wood elven style. Definetly a very good looking model. :smile2:

These are my favourite Elf models I have seen. Shame I don't play Elves.

I am beginning to warm to them.  Like 023, I like the armor on the archer better than the spearman
