The Galadhrim archer figures had a more 'open' stance than most of the spear and swordsmen, so it presented an opportunity to have more fun with the leafy armor design.
While a lot of greenish hues would be needed on the golds, I did want to reflect some of the reds and oranges as well.
The open cloaks meant that I could show enough of that orange color to justify such reflections.
As I say over and over again, it is the reflections and reflected light that are essential to have NMM look the least bit realistic.
The sculpting and casting of the Lord of the Rings figures was not always the greatest, particularly in the early days. Nevertheless, it was still very enjoyable to paint up the whole army, and get to use it many times!
