Northstar and Frostgrave's team are releasing a fantasy series called Oathmark. Currently on Northstar they're selling Dwarves and Goblins yet it's been leaked that they're going to release Elves!

If you've played Frostgrave or have seen the sprues you'll have a general idea of what these models will look like. Personally I'm excited since now we can finally have updated models for elves! Totally going to use these with some of my old bits to make a 9th age army with more modern higher-quality models!

I'm excited!

Kind of a realistic look. Detail appears solid.

Yeah, now that you mention it they kinda have sparse difference between Celtic/Arthurian men-at-arms once you remove the head. I really want to see a middle ground between Mantic Games' elves and these, or simply newer official Asur models from GW.

Good models, especially if one was to add a few extra ornamental details such as gems. I like the style.

I actually quite like the realistic approach, but the chainmail and open faced helmet seem a little out of place IMHO. I would personally prefer the kind of helmets from the Skycutter, they're streamlined enough to be distinctly elvish but not so ridiculously tall as to be...well, ridiculous :D

Glad to see that there are going to be alternatives though, we're sorely needing those :)
