This final month we have the Dark Elf General, the wicked Vakath himself, along with an alternate model Sorceress as a little bonus for all those who have been leaving the kind and encouraging comments throughout this competition. Vakath is mounted on a special, purple Cold One. Not exactly with the green and blue army theme, but I really wanted him to stick out and not blend in with the other units too much. I have given him a sea serpent on his shield to retain a little of that reaver theme. The sorceress is a little more in line with the general colour scheme of the army, although I also gave her a purple headpiece to match the general's mount. This is the Talisman plastic sorceress (who incidentally is modelled after the sorceress on the cover to the 1995 Dark Elves army book). She showed up in the Games Workshop studio army, but sadly I have not seen her in too many other armies. She was an absolute delight to paint and making her emerald cape and neon-pink hair was a great deal of fun. Below is a view of her cape.
That comes two models, only one of which is worth any points in the army:
Dark Elf General ~ 176 pts
Cold One, Heavy Armour, Lance, Shield
Alternate Dark Elf Sorceress ~ 59 pts, but really zero!
That's it for me this month! A small number of figures to wrap up the challenge, but it allowed me to go into more detail than I had been able to with the previous entries. The next post will show off the entire army and I'll give my thoughts on the process and experience!
