Warhammer Fantasy - Dark Elf Corsairs

 A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to inherit several Warhammer Fantasy Armies from a friend  (we shall call him Chris) who no longer plays or dabbles in the hobby.  Dark Elves, Chaos Warriors of Nurgle and Ogre Kingdoms are now mine (for a price of course $$$).  Chris was a very good painter so I am quite lucky to have an opportunity to have his stuff in my collection (especially since he was my prime opponent, I am quite familiar with these forces, having faced them in battle many times).

Most of Chris's forces were painted, however there were some which were either partially done or in a virgin state.  The unit below, Dark Elf Black Ark Corsairs were virgin models.  Last weekend I attacked this unit, determined to paint it up in the same scheme as the rest of his army (which I will showcase soon).  

Warhammer Dark Elf Black Ark Corsairs

These models are old...all metal.  Overall they were an easy painting project.  I decided to go with green Sea Dragon Cloaks....although a black might have looked better from an "evilish" standpoint.  

The models had a simple scheme:
  • Vallejo Black Primer
  • Vallejo Model Air NATO Green Primer
  • Vallejo Steel for metal parts.
  • Sea Dragon Cloak drybrushed in Reaper Master Naga Green & Cats Eye Green, Vallejo Green Sky.
  • Clothing was done in Vallejo Game Color Hexed Lichen, Vallejo Model Violet Red, Vallejo Game Color Warlord Purple and Vallejo Model Color Magenta.  Basically all wet blended together.
  • Skin was done in Reaper Master Series Tanned Skin Triad.

Lokhir Fellheart leads his regiment of Corsairs to capture High Elf slaves.....he is a believer of zero unemployment for High Elves.

Corsairs were one unit which I never saw much on the field.  Chris rarely played models which were unpainted.  Now, after more than a decade in storage, they are ready to rumble.  


  1. Very nice looking regiment!

    1. Thanks Mouse. I am please with them and they took surprising little time to complete.

  2. Dark elves had so many cool looking minis. I was left quite cold by their basic rank and file though.

    1. Actually, the DE rank and file are the only Elf models I actually like (or, more accurately, dislike the least....I despise Pope Helmets).
