Today I finished painting them. That's a hell of a wait in the lead pile. Anyone out there beat 22 years between buying and painting some miniatures?
Without further ado, here they are:
I have a couple of games scheduled this week - one against a professional rugby player! - and so it seems likely they'll get a run out.
So here are the heavy hitters, the two Witch Elves and the Star Player, Harkon Heartripper:
The positional chaps, two Blitzers and - probably the most important player the way I play DE - the thrower:
And finally the blackbone, the linesmen.
For anyone that's interested, the uniforms were done with my 'ghostly' recipe; black primer, blast of grey primer for pre-highlight, then white drybrush and a green ink wash. Fast and effective; white highlights give a luminous quality and some silver and red gems help break up the green. The skin was a simple blue-tinged affair. The bases were done the same as the Human and Orc teams.
The team name will be either the Pitfiend Stilettos or the Niflheim Ravens; I am currently torn. Any suggestions in the comments below would be appreciated.
I have one more team to pick up and then I'll've covered the four main playstyles I'm interested in.
Expect match reports to drop next week.
