When you need an extra elf...

After Rich and I tweaked the list a few times for Bilbo's Bash, I realized that I was short 1 elf with a sword and shield.  I just didn't have the time to somehow convert one of the many extra archers, and I was not going to buy a whole box just for one more either!

So, I took one of the Reaper High Elves that I had been saving for special characters and painted it in the standard Knights of the Blood Rose colors.

The Reaper High elves are fantastic replacements for the GW character minis, since they are a bit larger scale, and don't look exactly like the regular troops.  That is very helpful in those inevitable end of game scrums!

Here is the original color test mini as a work in progress.

One last test game battle report coming on Friday!  Stay Tuned!


  1. I think the Reaper minis look more appropiate as LOTR elves than the GW minis. And damn their high fight skill!!! Rich

    1. It's the same thing for the dwarves and wood elves... and the orcs, and so on.. ;-)
