Tale Of One Gamer: Week 3


Gary presents his progress on his new Wood Elves army.

So, thanks for joining me again. I won’t take up to much of your time I promise. This week I’ve been making progress on my Rangers. These are the first 10 of a 20 strong unit. In game they are not “optimal” but any pros will soon be able to tell that my list is not optimal in any way!

The two reasons I choose this unit are a) they look shit hot and b) their fluff. The are basically border patrol for the Wildwood, an area of the Wood Elf kingdom where the evil forest spirits are imprisoned by magical waystones. I thought this fit in well with the fact that most of my army comprises of forest spirits.

For painting I decided to use the same greyish blue I used as my Treemans bark as the cloaks colour. The skin turned out a bit darker than I wanted but I’m still happy with it.

This week I’ll be attempting to paint 16 Dryads! Fingers crossed.

  1. Hi,

    I am painting wood elves winter themed and I would really like to know the name of the blue paint you are using? At the moment I am sticking with Lothern blue but it doesn’t seem as bright as these.
