    Good job!

    I recommend painting the aquarium plants though. They look a bit weird when unpainted IMO.

    Thank you :)

    I know. I still need to add the purity seal (Mat varnish), maybe that helps trim down the shinny-ness...

    Yea I can see that also the glue on the base, I reckon this would be an easy fix if you used some bush type things and it would look a bit cleaner, but it doesn't really matter since the model is the main part (which looks great btw) I know this is a bit annoying but im going to recommend a product to you, ever since I bought it i have used it on every model and it never lets me down - Its called 'woodland scenics bush foliage and it looks like this, I got mine on Goblin Gaming which is a hobby store thingy https://www.goblingaming.co.uk/search/bushes/ just get it were its the cheapest.

    Yet another blast from the past:

    An army i had/have big plans for, but never got around to start it up properly.
    So most of the ideas are still in my head but you can take a look at them as is.

    High Elf Seaguard

    IMG_20190329_164932.jpg

    Total army picture

    IMG_20190329_165023.jpg

    Seaguard king(?) and his banner bearer (conversion of a crewmember from the Skycutter and banner)

    IMG_20190329_165010.jpg
    Seaguard unit from the starter box 'Island of Blood'

    IMG_20190329_164942.jpg
    High elf Mage and Lord on Griffon also from the 'Island of Blood' Starter box

    IMG_20190329_164950.jpg
    IMG_20190329_165002.jpg
    Conversion (one i am really proud of and i want to do it justice by not finishing it up to quickly) of an Dark Eldar Raider into a Seaguard battleship.
    Members, bolt thrower, sail and extras are from the Skycutter. The navigational orb is from the Collegiate Arcane Mystic Battle Wizards set (was laying around anyway ;) ) the 'wooden' floor panels are cut up cardboard. I had have some problems with the back of the ship, I had to cut out all the thrusters and other mechanical stuff... covering it up has not been a success yet.

    Let me know what you think

    They look really cool - particularly the conversions!

    If you do restart it, some of the Idoneth stuff looks like it would fit right in too!

    After playing the High Elves (which I previously didn't like much before) in TWW2 I do have a soft spot for them. So I am looking forward to seeing them painted. :)

    that is an awesome conversion, I thought I recognized it from Dark Eldar :D, its really fustraiting the way GW just abandoned bretonia, highelves and dwarfs. :mad:. luckily conversions and models from other websites can still save people that have that army. -
    dragonguard-regiment and I'm sure there are tones of other websites that sell cool miniatures for the army.

    I did get some work done Friday (at the somewhat local store) and just now. All scales and skin of the Saurus Warriors unit are done :)

    WIP: Saurus Warriors

    IMG_20190422_012649.jpg IMG_20190422_012739.jpg

    Now onto the weapons and armor.
    Hope to finish up in time.
