From what I read about the army it is very terrain dependent. You need lots of trees (Wyldwoods to be precise). I do like the bugs better in the burgundy too.

Thank you . I’ve always questioned my color choices, especially since my wife comments about my wardrobe selection frequently . The yellow turned out so nice that I really wanted to pull it back more to make it even more special instead of having it everywhere. Hope that makes sense.

Well more progress.

Even though this is a huge model he is coming along quickly, and I think he’s coming along well even with the speed. I’m thinking of making some glowing (yellow) runes on him, I just don’t want to overdo it. Also looking at basing him already. I figured the army will have stirland mud applied to the bases and then painted like the Ylthari’s Guardians bases in the same green that matches this guys ivy loincloth. The guardian bases have some rounded stones on them which have been painted with the basilica grey contrast paints. I have some small aquarium stones that I can use.

Theophony,

That is quick, you will be finished before day five at this rate...which means you can add more models to your challenge...like a Goblin that the Treant has thrown in the air (satisfies flying theme of this month).

The GW version of Treebeard is shaping up nicely. I can't say I'm a fan of much of the modern GW styling, but that is painting up well.

That Treant looks way better than the GW scheme in my opinion, it actually looks like a tree come to life. The GW one is very strange looking in comparison. Good stuff!

Sorry for the silence, not much hobby happening, though Drycha Hamadrya was purchased today along with some basing stuff.

I’ll get responses up and pics over the weekend (probably Sunday) as we are going to see the Blue Angels tomorrow and have a date night with friends afterwards. Then I have to clean up from the church carnival late Saturday night/Sunday.

I really dislike the spirit that is coming out of Drycha Hamadrya. Not sure if she’s close enough in size to the treelord where I can use a spare head, but I’m going to try.

Oh the flying part is covered by a dryad that is being hurled by the treelord like colossus would chuck wolverine

The army has two very distinct factions. Evil tree sprites and Bob Ross happy tree sprites. I’m more the Bob Ross type.

GrimDork wrote:Giant tree dude looks cool. Will have to catch up on this one.

Well this project is new, so not much to catch up on, but glad to see you back.

Pictures in the morning.....or Sunday.

Edit: not sleeping well, so that means God wants me to paint/do hobby stuff RIGHT???

Current state of affairs with the treelord.

Also, supply drop from yesterday.

It’s been a long time since I’ve bought basing stuff and I’ve never used army painter products for basing, so I’ll go watch some videos as I assemble the Son of a birch.

Assembled and size comparison as I couldn’t find and side by sides out there.

And instead of the ugly spirit I used one of the spare heads from the treelord kit, which I think turned out great and instead of the weird tale with honeycomb I added the spare loincloth from the treelord kit to cover his badonkadonk trunk.


Feels like lots of movement from this kit. I haven’t added the squirmlings or bug swarms. I think I’ll leave them off so I can just run him as a mini treelord or as Drycha Hamadreth. Going to prime him up now so I can paint him when I have some time.

Wow, a lot of progress going on lately. The Sylvaneth line (or whatever Wood Elves are called these days) is one of my favorite of the AoS models. If I ever played, they would be a top contender for my faction of choice. The treelord is coming together quickly and looks great.

Yeah, the fact that it’s WYSIWYG is dumb. Especially since the bugs are too tiny to magnetize.

I don’t mind the bugs (Spites), just distracting to say the least.

I’ll probably never play, but it I should the line I would go with, followed by probably stormcasts (though I’ll be repainting the ones I’ve already done of those ).

Yeah I think the yellow cake before the trees, at least in my mind of painting anyway.

I think the heads all fit well, and give the option of putting some flock on for more beard/hair is calling me.

Well quick update, will do some more painting soonish, but now my mind is almost set on finding some large bug wings this guy just scream so giant hug with wood armor to me and I think there’s are just the right contact points to give him Bee wings which wouldn’t make him a flyer, but just look cool. I’ve thought about the wings from the Nurgle plague fly, might have to ebay shop for a set.


Edit: more painting and basing done.

Fastball special almost completed.
Mr. Honeybee is getting there as well.


I think they need more to the basing still. I may have to go and kill a few twigs .

Little fronds . Dryad assembly sucks . The little fronds have small contact to the ground and superglue takes too long to grab it. I may have to go get some good old plastic glue.

I just didn’t like the look of the evil spirit coming out of the tree. I’m more of a sunshiny energy in the tree and the face and hair just weren’t going to change with bright colors. But thanks

Dr H wrote:Good work, Theo'. Tree-mendous.

Oh you .

So as I mentioned, gluing the dryads to the bases is sucking. Almost makes me wish they had good old fashioned tabs on them.

And the wind up. I definitely need a better photo booth set up.....or a photo booth set up to begin with.

You can see Gumball getting ready to be thrown into the enemy ranks.

So in my travels today I stopped by Miniaturemarket......no good ever comes from me stopping by Miniaturemarket . Did I get more tree peoples? Or more paint for tree peoples? Or more basing stuff for tree peoples?

NO.

I got a banged up box of Gotha Knights forWrath of Kings . It’s okay though as one day I want to field a werewolf army too . 8 big old werewolves wearing armor for $10......done. Besides I have stupid dryads to glue together and paint up so I need a distraction .

Living near Miniature Market must be pretty cool. My town is getting its first FLGS on Friday and they say they will be stocking GW within the next month. Its no Mini Market but its better than what I had!!

Tree folk are coming along nicely. I remember the WoK KS but I never got into it so no clue what Gotha knights are but 8 for 10$ sounds like a good deal to me.

Gotha Knights? Cool. And at 10 bucks, an absolute steal. Miniature Market is a dangerous place. Can't imagine being able to just walk in and browse. I freaked out and bought a grip of the non-Wolfen myself when I was out of comission. Still not sure why. They are some pretty sweet models, though.

Trees are still looking good. I figured they wood.

Good luck with the FLGS, I live in St. Louis and at one point I had 6 FLGS within 15 minutes of me, a few have gone under since, but the main ones I’d frequent are still strong.
I didn’t get into the Kickstarter or the game, but the not wolfed are great for making a werewolf army for kings of war.

Cheap things are always good for practice if nothing else. I miss the old Miniaturemarket when it was 2 miles from my house. No one went there so I got some great deals that I haven’t seen at the new place. Oh the puns....keep them coming, just stay off the grass.

They are HUGE, even bigger that the rest of the wolfed guys I have. I played around with an idea for fur, so I’ll probably try it out on them. It’ll be more of a white/winter sort of scheme.

Well I sucked it up and finished the dryads.

Probably could have used wood putty to get them together. At least this thorn in my side is done.

Thanks RIDS, I was hoping the yellow would help people see the trees even in the forest.

They sure had me pining for the the good old days .

Well dryads are primed now waiting for basecoat, but that will wait till tonight as I’m leaving for work shortly.

In the mean time I started trying out the contrasts on the Wolfen.

Two guys painted with a coat of Basicillica grey and one with apothecary white. One of the two grey will get a test layer of apothecary white on top to see if that will tone him down a bit, but he won’t be dry till I get home.

FYI, workers compensation doctor upon hearing I was being sent to a specialist and wouldn’t be back to see them released me to full duty last week. That didn’t turn out so well as I argued I wasn’t ready. They put me back to doing most of what I used too which had me using more pain medicine, which kept me home with bad stomach issues. Saw the specialist yesterday and he was shocked to hear they had me back to full. Restrictions have been put back, new medicine prescribed, and I’m headed in to see what my work has to say about the situation. I know my boss will be “caring” as ever.
