Victrix Norman to Elf Warrior

I’m getting quite excited by the soon to be released plastic Normans from Victrix. The main reason for this is I think they will make fantastic Elves. This idea comes from the talented painter and green stuff expert Graham Green. I have been looking at Graham’s converted Foundry Normans for a while,  so when I saw Victrix were releasing ‘plastic’ Normans I thought this is the time to give it a go. They should mix well with other plastic Elf parts from GW and Oathmark, the odd greenstuff cloak should help matters.

I have never really been a massive fan of feathers on helmets but recently I have come around to it. A big feather on the front takes it away from historical and into Fantasy, it also helps to tie them in with my old Grenadier High Elves. To this point I will be going back and repainting the helmets of my archers to match these armoured infantry.
Also a green paint scheme should just help to nudge it away from historical Norman just a bit and the feathers will help there too.

I’m excited for this project, but can’t forget about the 50 odd plastic Orcs I have just made.  These new plastics are making it a great time to be into fantasy war gaming, your imagination can go wild with so many new options available, good times.
