My Kingdom For a Mounted Commander!
A project I have been working on for some time now. Finally it has come together. Nothing is more exciting than painting the last detail and starting to assemble the model. I find that very often you do not get the gradual “satisfaction” of seeing the work progressing because you are working on several separate parts at the same time.
This is meant as both a character/battle standard and as a nice standard-bearing centerpiece for my unit of Silver Helms. I do love my cavalry (despite them being very expensive and vulnerable units that will draw fire from every war machine and mad sorcerer on the battle field). I was so happy when the Silver Helms returned to being Core units in the current edition of the High Elf book. Mostly because I like the option of fielding an all mounted army. But also because having them in the Special section never made any sense. There is nothing special about these knights except that they are knights (good armor save, hard hitting charge and fast and stuff) and if you were going to spend Special unit points on cavalry of course you’d choose Dragon Princes.
Ok – end rant. Here is the finished miniature:
