High Elves - The Secret Army

I've started my themed High Elf army.  It took me a while to finalize what the theme was going to be.  I toyed with the idea of a Shawdowland themed army designed to hunt down the Druchi.  It is interesting enough, but I think this idea has been done to death.  So taking inspiration from IOB and the HE army book I've settled on doing a "Secret Army".  The secret army is mentioned in the blurb in the current army book on the Sword Masters page.  Essentially this is a witch-hunterish army - designed to secretly hunt the Cults of Excess.  Sword Masters will play a prominent role in the army.  I don't have a specific army list written yet but it will be infantry heavy augmented with some cavalry and chariots.

The first unit out of the gates will obviously be IOB Sword Masters (see conversion in previous post).  But I also thought it would be neat to work in Sword Master theme into other units.   First up is the chariots.  The chariot themselves are pretty straight out of the box except the sword (from banner pole) added to the yoke.  Since I have a bunch of extra Sword Master command I need to find something to do with them.  So I've started to convert them into crew for the chariots.  I'm turning the standard bearer into a driver and the musician into a crewmen.  Here are a couple of WIP shots.  Still have a ways to go but gives you basic idea.
