This is another variant of Reaper's Elf Ranger Flat. In this case a Dark Elf. Since I had no idea what a dark elf was, I had to do some research. Basically, they're... dark. Purples, blacks, reds, etc. I suppose there's other variants. I added the nocked arrow using brass rod, putty flights and head. A small amount of carving was involved. Painted in Reaper acrylics.
Qs and Cs welcomed.

The Kickstarter is live:
This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.
I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this:
Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called.
I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like."
Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
So, this is what they look like when you open the box:
Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play.
But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.
I'm new here, though I have been a lurker for many years at this point. I used to be quite into painting and sculpting miniatures but took a break when I went to college and I want to get back into it. I've backed bones 4 so I figured I should start warming up for it!
So, after a four year break here is what I'm working on:
Any feedback or critique would be wonderful!
