I like your color choices. Never underestimate slightly different greens.

Skills!

You got to base in our opinion, we always have angst over how to base and even if we should, but a half decent base makes the whole mini 'pop'.

Obvs we think you should go for a an outdoor themed base using those leaves and roots. GW do a vines and bracken which might help too.

And tufts, tufts are cool :)

Not got many Elfs and no wood elves, uppity sods, think they own the forest and at one with nature. They don't feel at one with nature when they step in some cunning placed rabbit doings :lol:

Very nice paints! I wouldn’t want to meet that crew after stepping into the wrong glen.

Are you going to flock/dress the bases?
I've been wrestling with that. That's one reason the bases aren't painted yet. I am toying with the idea, particularly since it would flow well with DH. I mean, with normal DF I don't usually dress the bases, because I don't want to draw focus away from the DF. I typically go for a neutral grey that should blend as much as possible.

But the DH floors are so busy with amazing forest detail, a big smooth brown circle WOULDN'T blend. I'll probably need to put SOMETHING on the bases to make them fit. Anyone familiar with the GW Glade Guard knows that the sprues come with little leaves and roots. I COULD use those. They'd arguably blend better than flock, which could stand out a bit in DH since the rest is sculpted Dwarvenite. On the other hand, meh, I've used flocked stuff with DF before and it looks fine.

Decisions, decisions.

Thanks, guys! (I also just realized I didn't mean to post in pre-KS forum! Serves me right for posting before I finished my morning coffee!)

Those all look amazing, though if do prefer the ones with the more subdued greens. :)

Wow, well looks like you've not missed a stride with paint skills. These look great, really nice poses on those minis. Are you going to flock/dress the bases? As always thanks for posting all the pictures! Im always hesitant now to look at your pictures lol since all your posts on Gorgon Tiers "forced" me to buy it! :lol:

Its going to be tough waiting for the forests to arrive ....

Because... I'm ready, baby!

(I don't have a problem. YOU have a problem. And, yes, I do need that other Glade Guard set I just ordered. YOU have the problem. Ahem.)


(These are WIP. I'm extremely happy with them, particularly since I haven't painted in years and I wasn't crazy about the brushes I had to work with...)
