From what i can gather from a lot of people on social medias, nos everyone is happy about the "exotic" headgear on the new Elves. Including me.
So i decided to create this topic as an exercise on headswaps BASED ON WHAT WE SEEN SO FAR. (so far all we got is the Montain section of the army)
Celennar - Sphiranx. Still not sure about the size or fit to the head, but Free Guild griffon or Phoenix might apply.
Teclis - Idoneth Aspects seen to have the correct helmet size.
Light of Eltharion - I really love this model Helmet and have no suggestion of what to replace it, considering it is an empty helmet. Perhaps a Stormcast Mask?
Wizard on Stone (couldnt find his/her name!) - Any traditional old school helmet or face should do the trick. A Sister of the Watch face is a good call if you want it to be a she. Another cool option would be using the Phoenix Guard leader helmet and painting it on the same stone pattern as the rest of the model.
Female Wind/River/Veil wizard - Same as above, but still soon to say considering that we do not have a good picture of her yet.
For all the troops, Phoenix Guard, Eternal Guard, Shadow Warrior/Sisters of the Watch and Dragon princes are great choices for conversions.
Vanari Auralan Wardens (Spear guys) - Love the Leader Helmet but not to keen on the plumes of the others. As usual, Phoenix Guard helmets could do the trick. If i pick the army, personally i will cut the plumes (or glue it) sideways to make mohawks out of then.
Vanari Dawnriders (Cavalry) - I love this helmets, but if you dont, Dragon Princes helmets are also pretty cool.
Alarith Stoneguard (hammer guys) - 2 ways to solve the issue : Remove the bull top (it will look just like a traditional High Elf helmet) or use the bull heads on the model as the helmets. Both should work. Another option can be Phoenix Guard or Eternal Guard.
Auralan Sentinels (archers) - Not the best, not the worse helmets imo. Given the mixed genders, Shadow warriors/Sisters of the watch can be an option. Sisters of the Thorn/Wild Riders MAY fit but not sure about it.
Annnd the Cow overlords...
This is a hard one imo and i belive many people will come with good options. Sphiranx head is a candidate. I belive i would try the Treelord myself (considering the trees in the back i THINK it might look good.
Now you guys, leave your feedback and ideas!
