Citadel Treemen

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.

Here are the first of the 28mm Hussite Crossbows I have painted. I used LBM transfers for the Pavises. The minis are 1st Corps.

A 54mm Enemy of Rome!

One of the latest additions to my 54mm enemies of Rome collection. 
I'd hate to be facing up to this fellow.
