Here are some Swiss I have painted in the last few days. The figures are a mixture of Perry's and my own homemade home-cast minis. I have used some Perry heads on my homemade minis as well.

Hope you all had a great Christmas.
Some additions to an Old School Wood Elves army I am putting together.
Three Treemen and a Treeman lord - "Durthu". The Wood Elf archer was included as a scale reference.
I looked through lots of images on painted examples of treemen and it was surprising how many did not look the way I expected. Lots of greys, reds and unusual combos. They look skillfully done and artistic but not the way I imagined them. I went with more traditional browns and more subtle contrasts to tie them into the Wood Elf figures I've already done.
As someone who has never painted 'monsters' before, I was surprised how much I enjoyed doing these guys. Something like 4 days from start to finish
It was fun to experiment with various washes and building up shading and texture.
Hope you like the results.
