The main way to get a lot of elves is to get Game Workshop's 'The Warriors of the Last Alliance'. Includes 16 elves of middle-earth!

cape:
You can paint your capes in any colour you like! Some people like to stick to a certain colour whereas others (like me) like to alternate colours to keep everything new and fresh if you will. First, paint the cape in Regal Blue/Brilliant Blue, then drybrush it with a 2:1 mixture of white to blue! Either paint the inside cape Brown or simply have it blue all over!

manskirt:
For the manskirt simply follow the same steps as the cape!

Metal/armour:
For the metal simply paint it all with either Shining Gold or Antique Gold! THATS IT!

chainmail and strap:
For the strap that runs down and under the arms and around the waist anfd the chainmail use Boltgun Metal/Shadowed Steel!

weaponry:
For the bows and quivers do this:
1)Paint the bow in Graveyard Earth/Uniform Brown
2)Paint the quiver like this also and paint the Elven runes in Shining Gold/Antique Gold!
For the swords do this:
1)Paint the blade Boltgun Metal/Shadowed steel
2)Paint the pommel in Chainmail/Honed Steel
3)The grip looks good in Graveyard Earth/Uniform Brown

Gloves:
The gloves are simply painted with Bestial Brown/Intense Brown

Face:
The face is quite easy. Some people get away with using dwarf flesh but follow this and get better results:
1)Apply Elf Flesh/Rosy Highlight to the face
2)Add GW's Orgryn Flesh wash to the face when dry and make sure not to add too much!

Well there you have it! I will add a basing tutorial up very soon! I hope you enjoyed my quick n dirty high elf!!! BYE!!!!
