Elves fleets are highly manoeuvrable, fast, deadly at range but extremely fragile. I followed the classic Man O’ War paint scheme with the addition of a few red accents. The sails are vector graphics that I had to re-trade from a scan of the original Man O’ War sail sheets. I then painted in the outline with acrylics. The Elven Runes on the flags are unique for each ship and match those on the ship cards.
Man-o-War: The two Dragon Ships are long range monster and can easily sink an enemy ship long before it comes close enough to fight back.
Independent: Eagle Ships came in boxes of three but somehow I ended up with four of them.
Ship of the Line: While I have too many Eagle Ships, I am definitely short on Hawk Ships with only a single squadron.
Flyer: The High Elves have multiple choices for flyers. The Eagle Riders are a good low point option while the Dragon Riders pack serious combat power. I painted up the dragons as fire and ice types to go with the blue and red theme of the fleet.
