What is so dark about this elf then? He is no darker than his fellow comrades, perhaps it is his mystique. The elf is designed to be used in the Warhammer games and comes riding on his dragon. The figures can be bought in individual blister packs and there is scope to paint them or leave them in their metallic effect state.
This guy is certainly going to please fans of Lord Of The Rings, Pratchett readers and anyone who is into their witchcraft and wizards. The toy might only be an inch or so in height, but he is one of the most visually interesting pieces to come out of the Warhammer camp. The figure is fixed on his dragon, so although this restricts the play value, it does mean that you can move him around and pretend he is fighting enemies.
The rider looks elf like with a heroic expression and a pose which suggests he is going into battle. I like his sharp sword which has been detailed very nicely from tip to handle. There is a good level of articulation on his armour too, so you can see plenty of ripples and grooves.
Even more fascinating is the dragon creature, who appears to be snarling at prey. Great gnashing teeth and spikey head gear give him an evil glare. As you move down his body, you will see his body has been created with a rich tapestry of bobbly bits and spiney looking skin. He is chunky and beastly and looks amazing. The figures come on a little stand which enables them to balance. Obviously you can use them in the roleplaying games, or buy them as separates and build your very own army of warriors which is just as thrilling. This set will cost somewhere around six to eight pounds, small yet visually rewarding toys for fantasy fans!
