Lissanne's High Elves- Waiting for Feanor or someone like him (279pts)
This month I have done my mandatory General on a chariot. I have been calling him Feanor, but when it came down to it, I didn't think the figure I had represents Feanor well at all. So I matched the paint scheme to my army banner, and it will be a useful leader, or a hero if I find my Feanor later on. (General 160+4 for sword, spear, heavy armor, Chariot 84 total 248pt)
A good side effect is trying NMM, and finding it takes one minute and the results look better than those metallics. I'll be doing NMM more carefully in the future.
Another Reaver, this one Kelegorm the fair, 3rd son of Feanor, on the hound of the Valar, Huan. Apparently he rode him into battle until they had a falling out. Did the fiddly shield, with bow and spear too. 31pts.
Which is all good since, because of the way we played back in the day, I am pretty sure my 2 bolt throwers cost only half what I thought, so I lost 100pts on the total. My friends insisted they were underpriced in 4th and they probably were, so I played them at 100pts each. (Didn't matter, I still won the few games I played.)
Still I top 1000 this month
Next month (my 'free' month) I want to finish up the last 3 Reavers, and maybe do 5 archers of the Heavenly Arch, as I am going to try to paint at least 1 member all 12 houses of Gondolin for our September Tolkien group's big meeting!
