Protect the Shield

Here's the first set of images from a recently painted Dark Elf team.  This is from Iron Golems, and they call it the Blackfire Cavaliers:  

There were several specific requests regarding colors, and even the series of shields that you see along the bases.  Those represent various 'houses' of Switzerland I believe.  Since there are a few dozen of them, I had to rotate those shields on various figures (I could get 8 on a base comfortably).

The team involved 20 figures in all, including the trophy turn marker, the ball, etc.  As far as the bases, those were resin (don't know the origin).

Each figure is pinned to the base, as usual.  I'll post the rest of the team soon, so stay tuned!


  1. A nice team. You don't often see Dark Elves in Red and Yellow. Are you using your traditional purple skin recipes?

    I got inspired an painted a Raging Hero Wyche squad in a similar purple skin.

    1. Thanks! I think this one was a little different, since he wanted blueish grey in it as well. Overall it was a very difficult set of colors to work out, but that is how it works doing the commission teams ;-) I would have loved to do some interesting purple and reds on the uniforms!
