A few other people in my local area have been playing more of the Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game and this has reinvigorated my love of the game. As such I felt it was a good opportunity to go back to my old forces. Some of these were started and never finished, others are still sat in their boxes nearly 20 years later.

First up were the Rivendell elves. The scene at the start of the Fellowship of the Ring film made me fall in love with these models and they are in much need of some attention. I wanted a light, natural feel for them, so went for light coloured robes (GW Ulthuan Grey) with a slightly lighter cloak than the movies (GW Thousand Sons Blue). I had a very old Gil-Galad model who I thought would be perfect to lead the spearmen, he was painted in exactly the same style, but with a bit of freehand work

I also had some bowmen, who got a Rivendell Captain added to their ranks for a bit of comabt power. Painted the same way as the others.

I also had a couple of old character elves who I painted up. Two Legolas varients, I’m not quite sure where they came from, I think one if from the original metal Fellowship of the Ring box and a very old Haldir model. These guys were so much fun to do as I got to try out some colours and techniques that I would not normally use, specifically the various green tones on Leggy and the red cloak on Haldir, which I was really pleased with.

That is it for my first batch of retro LoTR models. I have some elf swordsmen that I am wanting to add next and also a couple of the newer Elf characters. I hope that you like these models. I have a bunch more old elves that need stripping and also some evil stuff I want to revisit, so I will post again soon. Please leave a comment as all feedback and questions are much appreciate, thanks for reading!

@halfmileduck they are looking great, the freehand is very impressive too. Looking forward to seeing more of these guys. Really like the bright colour palet making them pop.
