We’ve been showing you all of the exciting new stuff but then it occurred to us that Kings of War has been going for quite a while and therefore quite a few of the new members of the Kings of War community may not have seen where it all began.
So we are going to do some army focus blogs and where better to start than with the Elves…after all, they were the first.

Taken from Ronnie’s blog post in July 2009

The First Race Is Elves

It’s Elves for a number of reasons.

Firstly, I think there is a chance to do some great Elf models – it has been a while since anyone has taken a new look at them. We wanted to capture the spirit and haughtiness of this noble race of killing machines! So in time honoured tradition we fed the designers beer and curry until they produced the finest picture of Elves seen for a while!

When the sculptor presented this picture the discussion over which race would be first was over! I think this piece of art really captures something about Elves, their ruthlessness and arrogance. Let me know what you think of the concept. In a week or so I’ll put up the photos of the sculptor’s desk, with the 3-Ups of the Elves being worked on it!

Until then.

Regards,

Ronnie

And that was the start for the Elves, the army was added to over time to reach the range of models we currently have and with Kings of War Version 2 we had the chance to really round them out.

One of the coolest additions is the Forest Shamblers and you can see the concept to finished model below.

We hope you enjoyed this little peek into the past, if you did please comment below and let us know which army you would like us to revisit next.

Thanks,

The Mantic Team
