Smaller heater shield, compared to the taller spearelf type?
Well, they don't have all the Lileath imagery, but Eccentric Miniatures sells plastic sprues of similar shields
. Can't say how they'd directly compare, or how the business is to order from. (Almost
ordered from them a couple of times. I don't think much of their minis, but their bits and accessories are very tempting.)
I wonder how easy it'd be to stick on a crescent moon with some putty and a couple of plastic or metal tubes with different diameters and sharpened edges...

Ow, I know the world is diverse enough that you'll find anything somewhere. And that in most cases someone has managed to come up with a dark and powerful myth about it. It was mainly just my feeling. Of course, even if puffins are cute and cuddly they could very well serve as a unit symbol. After all, it only brings more shame to your enemy if they get beaten by a cute lil bird.
I think I came on a bit strong there! I like it because to us, it's a cute, clowny little bird, but to these tough, haughty elves it's not. It suggests a different culture that isn't just all dragons and phoenixes and eagles - the obviously tough, grr-aargh creatures.
And if I can say so, a more subtle culture than the WoW-style... how to put it diplomatically... 'lack of restraint' that AoS is carrying on with.
I have to disagree with both of you, GW products are relatively ok, but there's much better stuff out there.
Rarely a bad move. As in, most of the time it's a good move. Sorry, maybe it doesn't translate well.
Well, if you look closely the bird on th shield of my Selafyn mini is painted like a Puffin, I thought it more like a local fauna thing. Prince Laurendiel (which is the name I chose for him) comes from a small island in the northern part of Ulthuan where puffins live... I wanted to give him a small unit to follow him aroud !
Which is the same reason as Værøy.
