I'm building some Dragon Rampant warbands of Elves and Trolls based on Poul Anderson's "The Broken Sword" I converted some of the very nice Tanatus miniatures into Elves with a more Dark Ages look than most. I used Sea Elf heads I got from White Knight Miniatures for the conversion work. I've also made use of some Otherworld Dark Elves.

The trolls shown in the top picture are converted from Reaper orcs.






Currently I'm working converting some Warlord Sarmatians into Elven cavalry

Excellent. The book seems to have been a huge influence on the old Ares game Fall of Albion. You might wish to pick that up for a campaign map. I really enjoy this thematic portrayal of Elf/Troll conflicts. In the board game men are allied with the Trolls.

Wow, those look brilliant! Great conversions, painting, basing – they're the whole package.

Those look like what Elves should look like. Very nicely done!

I like these. They'really refeshingly 'realistic' as opposed to the endless flowing cloaks and flowing hair you see way too often!

Very inspirational, agree those look like real hardcore elves.

Very nice!

I just listened to The Broken Sword last year – great story! Definitely good inspiration for wargaming there.

Tom Loback(Dragon Tooth) bucked the trend back in the 70s by producing elves based on this sort of concept,and Elric. He also was "ahead of his time" in a way,making his figures larger than anyone else's. They didn't really fit in with other ranges then,but I bet they would now.

Good luck finding any,though.

Shame those sea elf heads are no longer available :(

Keifer11326 Feb 2016 2:54 a.m. PST

Looking at these again…did you sculpt the helmets on some of those spearmen?

Those are excellent! I just found some of the sea elf heads for sale, I hope my elves are as good as yours!!!!!

I'm being lazy and will use Macedonian heads for my helmeted heads….

These are superb- really gets that cross over from history feeling. Tolkien would be proud!
