I'm guessing Dark Elves? Nice ones, but (thinking out loud here) the claymores don't seem fit as an assassins weapon though... anyway the armor and helmet work well.

Thanks man! I agree that claymore's don't work well, but I don't really see them as claymores, just as a bigger sword for more heavy duty assassinations. :)

Aeridian has a good point. I think the claymores may be a little too large for a simple assassination. However, I love the daggers in the offhands. I think assassin's wielding dual daggers always look good.

The helmet is a great touch. :D

Nice! Very sinister figures. I, for one, like the sword+dagger combo; the claymores don't look that unwieldy, nor do they look like true longswords or bastard swords - more like a classic broadsword, albeit with a narrow blade. Very cool.

I think they look great, but I wouldn't have called them "Elven", IMHO.

I don't think of Elves as being too fond of dragons (whether that's actually rooted in any known mythology or lore, I have no idea), and the claymores don't look very elvish or assassin-like to me. Maybe a title of "elite dragon warriors" or something like that would have suited them better.

Even with those quibbles though, they are super cool-looking figs. The all-black color scheme really is intimidating! :twisted:

Thanks AK, I kinda like the combos, but everyone has their own opinions. :) Hmm, maybe, but I kinda think of them as evil Elves, twisted elves (like orcs, except they look the same).
