Lord of the Rings Elf

Who hacked my blog page and put this Elf on it.  This is an outrage and must be corrected.

OK, it was me and I must apologize to my followers for doing this however a friend of mine asked me to help him with painting his Elf army.  I was giving him a lot of advice however it was easier for me to paint a model for him so he could see what I was telling him.  I like the way it turned out and I got to use some colors that I don't normally use, like gold.  The best part of this paint job was the hair.  He wanted a blond color and that is really hard to do.  I didn't want to give the model a bleach blond hair color and I went with a dirty blond.  I think it turned out rather nice.

While I was painting this model for my friend I decided to test paint one of my models for my next army.  This was a simple paint job and I based it on one of my custom bases.  The other thing I did was replaced his pike with one that I made.  I think it really turned out great.

I like the new Pikes, what are you using for them and why the change?

I am just using brass rod. I take a hammer to one end and pound it flat. Then I trim it to the shape that I want. Then I use some wire to make it look like the tip is being held on. Why am I doing this, just want my army to stand out from other armies.
