Age of Sigmar – The Swamp Elves

Ok, lets start by saying this: I got the inspiration for this army from ! I really really like the idea of “evil” wood elves, so I had to make my own. At first I was not so fond of the Sylvaneth, but they kinda drifted into the project.

My first models were eternal guards, these are based of the eternal guard model legs and cloak, torso from wild rider and heads from nurgle blightkings. The spears are from skaven in the “island of blood” kit.
