I finished these two elementals for a scenario we are going to play later this month. The large one is the Citadel Earth Elemental released way back in 1984 (I think) and thus certainly a mini of a certain age. I really love this earth elemental – it is large, hulking and has this great genie pose with a ton of character. It even seems, sort of, to have found its way into the art work of the WFB 3ed rulebook where a very similar earth elemental is depicted om p. 272.
The small one is a Golem from the Night Horrors range released around ´86. He is also sometimes found listed as an earth elemental and I will be using him as an elemental in the scenario, but I have in fact not found him listed as an elemental in any official Citadel material. The tab also reads Golem.
Before painting the golem, I was a bit confused as to what was what on the mini, but after I began working on him things started to make sense and what started as a slightly skeptical attitude towards the mini turned into something way more positive. It is definitely not the greatest sculpt produced by Citadel, but is has a lot of charm and you got to love the power pose.
Now I really need to get my hands on the fire, earth and water elementals as well. The collecting never ends…
