GW High Elves

GW High Elves

Something totally different for year’s begin. First time i paint GW minis, and also first time i paint something bigger than 1/72.

I enjoyed a lot painting this, they are from my cousin (ten years younger), i took them this Christmas but i forget to pick up a shield for the infantry man…

There is a notable size difference against 1/72, i have used some tutorials at GW site, i make some mistakes with shield and lance of the horse man, so much better result can be achieved with those items, but finally i’m more or less gladded with result. They look fine for me, thinking it’s my first time. The worst, these high elves have a lot of white, which is one of the colours i’m always afraid to use and never get a good result.
I felt the temptation to paint the whole boxes, but i have some many pending work with 1/72… i wasted three days painting these ones (about 10 hours, including time looking the tutorials) i first paint the infantry man, after this, everything gone quickly.

Size differences are also remarkable taking pictures, although this is also because my cam isn’t very good to take close to 1/72, but enough for this ones as pictures shows.

For first time i was capable to paint eyes (i know, they are not great eyes.. but)… still i think i can’t done on 1/72…
I will appreciate any comment from an experienced painter with GW minis… !!

Best regards.
