Knights of Rivendell

Adepticon is looming and there are a million things on my to do list but start is starting to materialize. I almost got aboard the excuse train and took it all the way to procrastination station. Thankfully stronger will prevailed and I am super excited how these knights of Rivendell came out and to have them done.

I kept with my original Elf paint scheme of "300" red. I have a large infantry contingent that began this spartan crimson concept a couple years ago.

I do not know how the future rules might change this army list, but as it stands it has Elrond, Lindir, and captains as options with cavalry as troop types.

The 600 point version clocks in at a low 17 models, so like always, I go into my games with a giant handicap. They are all bow armed per the army special rules so depending on who I am playing or what mood I am in I can always play the dink and dodge game if I really have to. Most times I will probably just be charging in and hoping natures wrath goes off.

Call me crazy but now that our local Bilbo's Birthday Bash has embraced 750 point games I will most likely be bringing my previous 8 converted knights to have an astonishing 25 model army! At least it will look cool....

The Watcher in the Water

I will leave you with more shiny pictures than text, up will be the Knights of Elrond. 
There is never enough time to build and paint all those monsters you have lying around. But here is another one off the list. Hopefully those tentacles cause some problems for opponents armies...

 Included in the games point cost is the Watcher's kitty pool, he has to carry it around the battlefield with him, provides +2 defense.
