High Elves - Guardians of the Fire Bird

 The next batch of orange elves to paint up was a twenty strong unit of Phoenix Guard.  The plastic re-sculpts continue to impress with lots of detail and dramatic poses (as much as they can be while being able to rank up).  The high elf aesthetic has really refined itself over the past years.
 I was most impressed with the banner, the raised detail is really easy to work with, and it is a lot easier than doing freehand.
 There is a lot of blue on these guys, unlike much of the rest of the army, which I did due to the army composition; there are two frost phoenixes.  What took the most time was the flames on the back of the cloaks, the detail isn't raised which made things rather finicky.
Until next round, be well.
