Alex's first HotT stand - Elf Spearmen

Alex finished these off through the week. They are the first stand of elves for his HotT army - I think they are some old Grenadier models. He will be using this army against my orc & goblin and dwarf armies. I will probably also create a barbarian and a standard fantasy human army - these will be my aims for next year.

Alex also started work on his next unit of Bretonnians - Men-at-arms.


  1. Nice job!

    They are indeed old Grenadier figures (which are currently available from Mirilton). I love those old Grenadier elves. I painted up a handful of them (with axes? or two-handed swords...? I can't remember it was a long time ago) for a friend of mine that had a High Elf army back in our Warhammer daze. They didn't look nearly as nice as these ones alex has done.

    I actually recently picked up a few of the mounted knights off ebay a couple weeks back to replace the ridiculously huge GW plastic ones I'm currently using in my own HOTT elf army!

    I'm looking forward to seeing these spearmen in action!

  2. Thanks for the kind comments Tim - Alex was well excited that he got the praise for his hard work. Also, thanks for the tip of visiting Mirliton to pick up the old Grenadier stuff - I can see me spending a fortune with them in the New Year to complete my HotT armies.
