I think I've finally settled on a color scheme for my high elf army. It is super easy and I think it will look sharp once I get it all done. I did up a few test models (minus the skin so far) so let me know what you think:
The blue metal is just boltgun metal with a blue wash and the silver is just boltgun metal highlighted with mithril silver. The white is a basecoat of Kommando Khaki highlighted up to skull white. It should be quick and easy. I'm going to paint up a dragon prince, an archer and a silverhelm before I decide for sure but I'm pretty happy with it so far.
Wow that blue metal look amazing. I'm not too sure about the shine on the swords. At first glance it looks good but looking at it for abit put me off it. Maybe they just need to be thinner strokes or something. Then again this is an up close pic. on the table top it will look astounding I have no doubt.
The blue gems are particularly impressive.
Are you going to be doing anything with the shield? it looks abit odd with nothing on it. Then again as a unit it probably will work. I love the scheme though as a whole. Simple yet extremely effective.
