Marauder - MM73 - Witch Elves

It's like falling in love with someone you think is beautiful, but actually isn't and it takes years to realise it. I'm talking about Dark Elves from the 90's.

My inspiration came from the 80's, but my financial strength became sufficient in the 90's. So I ended up buying a Dark Elf army deal. Big box, purple border, and the picture contained a skull tower I believe. It was the latest craze at the moment.

Years have past, and finally I'm able to rectify the error of my doings. I proudly present the first painted regiment of my 80's Dark Elf army.

    1. Thank you One, she became my favorite while painting the lot, but the hairdo is nothing compared with later editions.

  2. There's a standard bearer in that range too.

    2. http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/index.php/Dark_Elf_(Marauder)_-_Collectors_Guide but checking it looks like the feamle standard bearer isn't Witch Elf.

  3. Does anybody else know what other armies had 2000 point deals like this and where were they advertised. Can remember them but not spot on.
