Here goes...

For the last couple of months I've been toying with doing a new High Elf army after selling the first army about 5 years ago. Don't ever do that, you'll regret it. I will admit now that I have a dwarf army and a dark elf army but please don't hold that against me just yet.

So I started again but instead of going for the GW blue and white, I decided to go with red. Since making that decision however I have noticed a lot of red colour schemes on this forum and am know having doubts about continuing with red and changing it to another colour. I like the idea of red as my dwarves are blue and cream, the dark elves are dark purple. So I'd like to stick with it depending on what you guys think.

Here are a couple of test models...

C&C most welcome.

Cheers.

I like it, and there aren't too many around already. If you want to paint yours in red, go for it! :wink:

Very smooth painting and a nice deep red - I suppose when one has already worked on other armies, one is bound to have refined and improved painting.

Very nice. Go for it.

(Aren't they looking smart and military, those 4th ed. Elves?)

Nice work indeed, I'm just finished all my archers for an upcoming battle and went with a red scheme on the 4th edition archers.

It's beautiful. A far superior job to my old army that had white with red, yours is much more striking. Excellent work!

Thanks a lot everyone for your kind words, it is appreciated.

I feel a bit better now about continuing with the scheme. I just hope that I can make a few changes to make them stand out a bit.

@Jimmy, I've just had a look at your thread, there's some lovely stuff in there. I see we are using similar colours but I will try to make a concious effort make mine different if I can.
