I think the Wood Elves really could use their own support group too. According the Harry's list we are the third largest group of painters among "the good guys". Only that fact should should justify the existence of this humble little thread.

Hmm.. I just counted the painters and it seems that we are considerably smaller faction that I first though. Well, that should be a bigger reason for a support group, doesn't it? :)

Here is the list:

Men: (200 Points/Month)
Adeptus Mechanicus : Wood Elves
Deusmex : Wood elves
Dr Mole : Wood Elves
Dwalin : wood elves
Frozensun : Wood Elves
Giant Dwarf : Wood Elves
Huron : wood Elves
InFlameWeTrust : Wood Elves
Suavely Dunn : Wood Elves

Boys : (100 Points/Month)
Leonathion : Wood Elves

May the vigour of Kurnous speed up your painting!

I'll start with posting all I've got done this far. I'm painting standard, very unimaginative, summer color scheme with greens and browns. Nevertheless it fits my board and I like it.

The glade guard unit is ready by now. Ok, I admit I started a little bit earlier than this month. But hey, if I'm cheating somebody its propably just myself! :) I know my real life schedule won't be too forgiving during the next 12 months, so I won't consider this too big sin. The pic:


Here are the waywathcers WIP picture including the test model. The first mini ended up very glossy, because I used varnish. Not very nice effect, even if it protects the paintwork. I'm afraid that I'm not able to finish all these guys to the end of the month, because of the infamous real life interventions I mentioned before, but I'll try. Perhaps I have to play the Treeman card already in the next month to compensate points...

I'm moving this thread to the new WarSeer Painting Support Group Forum.

Good starters! I like your paint scheme, it's very GW, and I for one like their style a lot. I'm not going to make a post the upcoming month, but I wish to lend my support. The link below is my former WE log, with some pictures and VIPs. I hope you like what you see and might get some insiration.


The stuff on my to do list is:

10 wardancers
10 gladeguard x 2
8 dryads x 3
1 banner bearer

I would like to add orion, and maybe a stagnoble with another wild rider regiment. I don't have any rare choices in there iether and considering all the fast cavalry I have, I might as well go with one or two treemen to get some anvils. That might do it...

Keep it up guys, make this thread worthwile!

Howdy WE's some good looking stuff so far!

I've joined very late, but here's my start:

Hi everyone.

I am another Wood Elf Talepainter. For the first month I try to get a lot of points done and have a little buffer for the coming months ahead, so I am painting my treeman at this moment.
He is nearly finished and I am convinced that I can post pictures later this week.

I like what I see so far. You both have done an excellent job this month!

@Shiodome: I have one question: How did you do the glowing eyes effect? I tried the tutorial of Tuhis (over at asrai.org) but it didn't turn out very well :(

31-08-2009, 18:55
what issues did you have? it's essentially the base colour for the eyes (in this case jade green i think, though might have been hawk turqoiuse , i really should write things down :P) mixed with white and then thinned down quite a lot so it's fairly translucent allowing the painting behind to show through. if you had a specific problem though, let us know and maybe i/we can help :)

I tried to do a red version and i think I had two Problems:

1. I wasn't sure which area i should paint. Just a circular area around the eye. (I am using an old Treeman model, like this one: http://www.geocities.com/luigi-x/treeman.gif)

2. My watered down paint looked more messy than nice on those areas.

i've not tried red glow myself, but to be honest i don't think red glow would work unless the surface is fairly dark... so it will depend on your colour scheme.

this might sound strange, but if you want reference on where to paint for a glow, try looking at source pictures for car headlights


imagine those as eyes, and you can see where the light falls, and how far the glow extends from the lightsource.

come on you wood elves. i know a solitary and reclusive nature is part of the background but this is silly... get talking, asking and helping each other out :P

Here's what i'm working on.
Wood Elf noble (concept. i've already gathered all the bits and started drilling/filing though):
also cleaning up mould lines on some wild riders at the moment, ready to start painting on thursday (hopefully)
