I painted this single model in 2001 while having a slow day at work. We'd recieved word that High Elves were getting some love and I was saving enough for the army box. This Spearman was the test model for my whole army, except the army's shields would be blue and simpler to paint (there were gonna be 50, after all!)
Check out the freehand on the shield. In real life, you can see so much more shading in the dragon and letters. I enjoyed the hell out of this shield as it became my first real attempt at using a fine detail brush seriously. And aren't Elves always a win?
