We could see a pair of dark figures through the grass. With them was a worried looking man, his hands tied behind his back, his shoulder trickling with water, centered around a rather large gash. Where they were taking him, we do not know, but wherever it was, I don't think his future looked bright.

The figure at the back of the trio snapped his head towards the bushes, his sword drawn.

'Sir, that is the second time I've heard something. We're being followed.

We stepped from the bushes, knowing that our attempt at a sneak attack had failed.

'You know Zach, next time I tell you not to have your bow drawn while sneaking through the forest, you should actually listen to me.'

Victor was clearly annoyed with me. Rightfully so too.

'What do we have here? The court jester of Avalonia has been sent to take us down? Take your best shot you little runt.'

I let go of the arrow. He swayed to the left, the arrow grazed his cheek.

'What were you expecting Drow? You think I was just going to stand here looking pretty?'

'Honestly, I was. Avalonians don't tend to think for themselves, I figured you would go with your training, and try to arrest me like every other soldier from the pearl city. Like every other solider that has crossed me however, you are going to fall to my blade.'

The second of the dark figures began to speak.

'Take hthem, I don't have time to deal with a couple of bumbling dogs from the west. Honestly, they sent these two to take on the Drow? I wouldn't be surprised if the grand Avalonian army consisted of a few donkeys, and the pixies that the girls of the grand Albion court managed to catch while they were waiting for the next outing your leader needed an escort for. Honestly, you Avalonians are pathetic.'

We drew our swords.

'Your not dealing with a couple of soldiers, Drow. And unlike them, we don't fight fair.'

We charged.

My blade met his. He was hyped up.

He threw a punch at me. Now he was off balance. That will be the last mistake he will ever make.

I grabbed his wrist, and Victor tackled him.

He was down, and I was up, with my sword at his neck. He was as good as dead.

After a messy slash, I helped up Victor. The Drow's sword was lying at my foot.

'This is a nice blade.'

'You can collect all the blades you want later, but not if we let the trail run cold. Lets go.'

Victor was off in a sprint, after the Drow that left the battle. And so the hunt was on...

Nice story, and like everyone else said: very cinematic photos. Your Drow have been the "most faithful" representations to Angeli's design I've seen thus far.

1 down, 1,000,000 more to go! :tongue:

Really nicely done! It's amazing how keeping it simple sometimes really works well. I especially like this photo below. The composition is just perfect, as is the angle of their blades, and so on. It's really good.

Looking forward to the continuation of this story!

Thanks a lot everyone! As you have probably noticed by now, I tend to rely on the layout of figures to make up for my smaller builds. I tried using green plates to 'undercoat' the grass in this build, which I quite like. Unfortunately, my collection of green plates seems to have somewhat disappeared, so I might need to go and pick up some more!

@Zach: I'm trying to work on my figure posing to make up for small builds too! Anyway, great scene. You did the landscaping perfectly! Keep up the good Drow hunting!
