This past week I finished an Elf unit for my "Wars of Ozz" Yule force. When I first saw these sculpts from Old Glory, I decided that when I got my hands on them I'd paint my Elf unit to look like the Elves in the old Rankin-Bass "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" Christmas TV special.
When I got to basing them, I debated about whether to go with snow bases or regular grass bases. In the end I decided on partial snow bases with the hopes that they will look okay on both a snow table cover or a regular grass table cover.
I used mostly Citadel Contrast Paints on these.
