Great work on the GG. Nice to see someone doing a wood elves army. Keeping them alive. Will do one once the new book has come out .

Indeed... I don't really have that much motivation to paint so it's been slow going. I think I'm going to spray the rest of the GG and then slowly paint them, I think having something different about each 10 man unit (maybe a different color coating on the quivers?). My main focus will be their faces, as I only sort of know how to do them (I played only BA for years, so I could get away without painting too many faces).

Thanks! I'm excited to see those. WE are tough to play right now, but definitely rewarding to do well with - I can't wait for the new book though, out is just a bit outdated.

Yes i noticed thiat. They are blotchy (no offense intended) I could suggest you to thin paint a little more whrn you paint faces and to use washes. Here are some tutorials for you, about faces!

Those are quite "pro" tutorials if i recall correctly, but could give you some good insights

Those below are easier:

Keep it coming, and yes, do differentiate models between the unit. A too similar unit will not help the outlook on the field. Some different colour will just add to the whole army.
Cheers!

Thanks @neferhet ! I've been looking for some good ones... As it was I kind of just tried different stuff until it looked not horrible

These are starting to look really good, the green is incredibly vibrant. You've got a very summer tone going on with them. Have you considered adding some coloured flower effect folliage to their bases to make them really pop as being a summer army?
Theres a vid on how to do it easily here.

Scattered around in the unit it would give them a real woodland in summer feel going on.

Thanks mate! I really like the look of that, I'll probably pick some up when I have the time/funds...

Anyway, quick update. I started on the second unit of Glade Guard (just a few coats of green) as well as my treeman, just basing him brown. Does anyone have much experience painting woody stuff? Specifically treemen would be nice but any advice is welcome.

A treeman! Awesome! My only advice would be to go wash heavy or highlight heavy, with the latter being more time consuming and the first easier but with lesser results. Alas, i'm not so good on wood

Hello all! Just a quick update. I did a little bit of work on the 2nd unit of GG (well, five of them), and I base coated a third. In addition, I did a bit of work on that treeman - I did some dry brushing, some washing, some detail picking, ooh and I made the eyes glow blue. I still have quite a bit to do, but oh well. I have a few days...

Slightly larger update. Actually quite a bit larger, but oh well.

First, I'm just throwing up another full army shot because I felt like setting up my army to look at it and really didn't want to waste it so... yeah.
Next up are my glade guard, the first unit got a quick black wash because I thought they needed a little depth (not that big a change really), and I am planning on doing something similar to the red arrow tips and golden bows/quivers on unit two.
And... unit two is the next up.
Finally a few shots of my treeman, he is mostly done (at least the bark part) but I want to do more. I based him drybrushed him washed him and then did some highlights, finally picking out the leaves and then trying this glowing blue eyes tutorial on Asrai. I'm not sure how well it worked, but oh well. I think I want to add leaves etc. to the treeman, but I'm not really sure how. Any tips?
