Ok, this may be a shock for some people, but I started my adventure with Warhammer Fantasy Battle few weeks ago.
I never thought I will, but my husband and his brother decided to play WHFB because they have so many minis for Dwarfs and O&G armies. I had no models for Wood Elves, but I always loved WE miniatures, so I started to complete the army.

I started with treekin, because I wanted to make them by myself. I don't like GW models. So I used bits from dryads and ogre heads, and lots of modelling putty Smile
Here are the WIPs - http://hakostwo.blogspot.com/2010/04/treekin-wip.html
(I know that most of you don't know Polish, so I will explain the first picture - yes, the tree from Pocahontas WAS one of my inspirations Wink )

And here - the first finished treekin.





I hope you like it Smile

VERY, VERY NICE...VERY! I LOVE the colors you chose & all the little details...the Owl is SO COOL! VERY WELL DONE!

Is this gong to be a WHFB army or a War Band or something in between?

More WHFB army than warband... I'd even play Mordheim (or better Empire in Flames, because the ruined city is no good place for elves), but I know no good rules for WE warband. Maybe because of this I chose this army, it's something different than "dirty guys looking for treasures in dangerous city of the damned" Wink

I use the War Bands rule from White Dwarf; it's for 500pt. WHFB armies with elements of the Mordheim rules...sort of the best of both worlds...sort of.

Love the treekin! I'm not a huge fan of GW's current treekin or treemen, either, although I do like some of the older models they did back in the 4th/5th ed. days.

I like the "Grandmother Willow" reference, and like Deaf I think the owl is really cool.

Thanks for all the nice words Smile
I don't like treekin models from GW, so I sculpted my own minis. I also plan to make my own treeman. I love Treewoman from Ultraforge Miniatures (
http://www.coolminiornot.com/store/shopimages/products/extras/treewoman_2.jpg) but for me the model is too expensive.

But today, the 2nd treekin. I hope you like it, although the pics are not so good (we had few rainy days in Poland and the daylight was bad).

Looks great! The attention to detail is superb, especially the little wood-sprite and the vine curling up his leg.

Great job, as always!

I started to paint my dryads. In Wood Elf Batallion are 12 of them, so I painted the first 4 (it would be boring to paint all the 12 at once) Smile I love the models from 6 edition!

LOVE the three-eyed treekin, and the dryads came out very nicely as well. Between the glowy eyes and the atumnal colors, they're much more sinister-looking than most wood elf armies!

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Myntokk! I like to paint red, orange and yellow - so I chose those colors, although most WE armies are green. I hope it will look also very nice on the elves, not only tree-like forest spirits Smile

More dryads!

Aaaaah, another wood elf player. Great!

What can I say, you made the best possible choice and are now playing the coolest WHFB army Razz
(with all due respect to the other factions)

I think your paintjob is excellent, especially on the dryads Skavenblight. Bravo!

Thanks Al, and thank you, Tom! Your opinion is especially important to me, because your army was one of my inspirations. I chose Wood Elves of course because of models (and of course because I couldn't play elves in Mordheim). It is indeed the coolest WHFB army, when you look on miniatures - dryads! spellsingers! Even unpainted they look great.

And again you go apenuts on the color use and totally make it work! definetaly an outstanding piece of work... again... great seeing your stuff.
One thing I do wish to criticise, the poses - seeing as you put one foot on the logs, they seem to tip backwards, if I may urge you to slightly convert their legs or body so they seem to be more balanced, you will definetely pull it off! Very Happy

great work on the bases... how did you create the water effect??
