Painted some dreadfleet auxiliaries as high elves

Battle of the five armies, a force of dwarfs, men and elves must withstand succesive waves of orcs before Beorn and the eagles come to the rescue
Thorin and co exit Erebor to take part in the battle
While the warg riders move ahead, the orc infantry footslogs on
The elves form back to back in order to repel incoming orcs from the north
The orcs show up away from the elves and charge some poor laketown militia
The warg riders charged but were soon anihilated
A lone rider stands against fairly unscatched elves
The elves form a square and shot in all directions
Slow grind in the east arm of the mountain
As time passed my father conceded after the masses of Bolg's guard came into play
The campaign at the local GW rolls on, today I had a game vs another guard army for the lower hemisphere of the forgeworld Konor. I brough a list low on antitank
Great was my dismay upon seeing that the enemy had loads of vehicles!
I got first turn and anihilated most infantry with the punishers
The enemy wyverns hid and shot
I captured some objectives in my first turn
My lightning swooped in and grabbed two VP from objective 3
A russ also picked up one objective sitting on top of it
Hive conscripts bagging an objective under a wyverns's nose
Enemy scions dropped and put some hurt
But not enough
In the last turn I rounded up mor eobjectives and won 10-7
Disappointed with the lightning fighter, it didn't kill a single unit and took away a quarter of my points. My guard is low on antitank so I might try putting meltas on the russes to improve that.

I'm painting a small high elf fleet of 500pts for the game, above you can see an eagleship: basically a ballista platform that fires broadsides. Insted of the origial man o' war models I'll be going with dreadfleet as they are cheaper, bigger and more detailed. The problem with those is that there isn't a great variety of ships which makes proxies form other brands a must for some fleets.
To make the eagleship I had to remove the dragon and ram from the original "seadrake" model.
There are some cute dolphins around the base, I had to model a wave in the prow to cover the space where the ram was
The fleet's admiral sails in a dragonship, no tinkering with it since the dreadfleet ship represents it well enough, with the ram and a perched dragon to boot

I'm resurrecting my man o war hobby beginning by some shore fortresses. They're nedded for one scenario and as generic terrain. Two are standard medieval, while the third is a modern age fort for nations such as the empire or Bretonnia
