Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Well the Sons of Sek got finished right under the wire. The GT was a blast and I'll have full coverage by this weekend.

Tuesday's Project: Treeman

So first off, I just found out today that I made the Law Journal at my school. I was preparing myself mentally not to make it, because apparently I psyched myself out. Boy was I surprised when I found out. Okay, on to the painitng...

Truth be told, this guy was really easy. I planned to work on him tonight specifically because I knew I had a lot of reading to do for Wednesday. Basically he's painted with Dark Flesh, Vermin Brown, Vomit Brown, 1:1 Vomit:Kommando Khaki.

Here's all three of my treemen:

Left: The one I did tonight.
Middle: My first treeman. He is a stock Citadel Treeman. I used a circular saw attachment for a dremel to chop all of his legs and torso in the middle. I then extended them all with wire hanger (No more wire hangers!), and filled the extensions in with green stuff.
Right: My first scratchbuilt treeman I did a month or so ago when I first taught myself the method from the GW US Online article.

Looks nice, I'm partial to the paint scheme on the middle tree but I think it adds a little something more to the force overall with each one painted a different color. I am assuming they don't act as a unit of three but are three separate entities to themselves?

Yeah, they're 3 separate units. The one in the middle is a Treeman Ancient (takes up a Lord and Rare slot), and the others are regular Treemen (each take up a rare slot).

They match the dryads, whom I painted in different schemes to differentiate them on the table. The bases with the fall leaves do a lot to tie the army together, otherwise the different wood schemes might not work.
