No love...no mercy...not here...not in Naggarythe!

Introduction:

After reading the sundering triology I have to start something...

Fluff and Look:

I'm fascinated by the fluff and the rules of the Asur, but I really hate much of their look...the helmets...the white cloths...the "good guy"-touch!

But I'm also really interested in the description of Naggarythe just before the sundering. They seemed like Spartans to me: Stoic and ruthless, but excellent warriors, living in a cultur of discipline and power...I want to have a Naggarothii- pre civil war-army!

You'll see conversions of Asur with many Druchi-bitz, to show the cruel style of the warrior-culture of the northern elves. My nobility will show more specific signs of the worship of Khaine and the other gods of the underworld. So I want to show how the once noble Naggarothii slip to be the dark Druchii.

The paintjob will consist of dark combinations like red-gold-black or blue-green or purple-black.

Enjoy!

Opening with my "Great Eagle":

A young griffon, found and raised by the beastmasters of Anlec

Princess as BSB

This girl show her devotion for Khaine and it's no wonder that the martial Naggarothii march to battle under the sign of the lord of murder.

WIPS of the warriors:

Wanting some kind of 300-feeling for my elves, I used greek hoplite- shields, as greek helmets for my Seaguard of Anlec.

I've seen those archer heads before somewhere, I reckon they would be awesome as phoenix guard heads... much better than the ridiculous helmet thats nearly as tall as the phoenix guard themselves. Is the head one of the ones produced by mantic games? How did you get it as just a bit?

That's why only Elf Wizards can use magic even thought their entire race is inherently magically attuned. The rest of them spend all their magical energy keeping their dopey hats up straight.

Elvish runes, sariour, thalui, and/or urithair, would go well with your theme.

This is a rather grim army.

One step from a Dark Elf army?
I'm not sure that model's great as a Spear Elf champion, he doesn't seem to fit with the unit very well. The Blue washed armour looks awesome.

I think a Champion doesn't have to look like or wear the gear of the rest of the unit.

thx for the armoury-comment.

Looking very impressive. Nice dark colours as well that match the feel of the Dark Elves.
