The time involved is nothing to sneeze at either.
My 6 others took years to complete. :oops: O.K. that was a fib.
But really a few weeks of actual time the way I did my weighted bases and all.
At least those older Woods 3-packs are around half the price of these new trees. I will say these look taller, but not that much bigger (2x ?).
I finished mine in a few months earlier this year, but I really enjoyed painting them and thought they took the detail well enough to make my sloppy painting skills look better than they really are :D

The only thing I dont like is that the leaves on my old GW trees do NOT stay on, no matter how fancy I've tried to get with positioning for more points to glue to branches.

I am likely to pick up a pack of these just for varieties sake, but will probably wait until I have dreadhollow delivered and maybe even until I see whats on offer for KS7 since realistically, wildlands may deliver by the time I get around to another big batch of painting.

And Oldent's right about GW not being cheap, but what's the old saying? Something about throwing stones in dwarvenite houses? ;)

Those are cool, but not cheap for 3-pack.
I like the open trunk/base, they would work well in a swamp.
Still, I'll wait to see how I like Dreadhollow. ;)

They look pretty good to us and with those roots ideal for you Swampers :)
