I've been wanting to paint a high elf for quite some time. I finally had some spare time and decided to paint a Phoenix Guard. I was immensely inspired by Paul Dainton's latest high elf codex cover. A bit too much perhaps, looking at them side by side they are soo similar.. :( But oh well.. I had lots of fun painting this. And I hope you enjoy it eventhough it is very unoriginal and strikingly similar to mr Dainton's piece. If you want to see his painting that inspired me you can just type "High elves codex" in a search engine and you'll find it :) Thanks!

Very good artwork! The background landscape add a lot to an already well-crafted Phoenix Guard. The torso's details are excellent.

Also, just in case of Warhammer-esque interest:…

Very similar, yes, but at least you gave credit and also did this on your own. Very nice work. I especially like the plane changes on the helmet.
The practical side of me wonders why this guy would need a GIANT poleaxe, two-handed sword, long sword, and at least two knives. A tad overkill.
