Dark Elf Darkshard

These elite crossbowmen are the backbone of Dark Elf artillery. Covered by tower shields Darkshards wear down enemy lines with a rain of dark arrows that never seems to cease. So better watch out where you send your shiny warriors!     

Customization Notes:
- the crossbow and quiver are a Koruit design from China (= no 1)
- the arrow is from Brickarms, I drilled a hole into the crossbow (=no 2)
- the cape is from Cape Madness (= no 3)
- orignal LEGO helmet modified (=no 4)
- wrist armor is from Brickwarriors (=no 5)
- shield is make from stickers with an extra piece in the middle to cover as much of the seam as possible, the shield can stand on its own
- the minifig is taken from a Chima keychain, a cheap source

Combining two stickers is messy work as it leaves a seam, but I wanted to make a new shield with this symbol. The crossbow surely is the centerpiece here, I salute Koruit for that.

Beautiful photograph. Lovely cool blues and greys. He's not really a baddie, is he?

Very nice. Could you not have used a brickforge helmet or sticker just to make it six! A record surely. :-)

Is the crossbow from the Koruit Orcs range? I have some on order but am still waiting for them.

Thank you. Dark Elves are very rational inside their evil paradigms. They are not chaotically evil, but nevertheless on the destructive side.  Their motives are unclear though. World domination maybe.

Yes, from the new Koruit Uruk-Hai. They have great bows and quivers as well.

Your minifigures are inspiring. Good work as always.
