Always thinking a little outside the box, I decided to collect a Sylvaneth army after first deciding I wanted to paint some models in a set colour scheme. I walked into one of my local charity shops a few weeks ago and found some of those plastic flowers ? the sort you?d usually find dotted around restaurants. The colour grabbed my attention, being a bright turquoise-blue and incredible vibrant orange leaves, bright green stalks with the odd smaller flower of a purply pink tone. I thought to myself that would look great on some plastic.
Firmly set on my colours I then started to look through the Games Workshop range and see what would be the perfect fit.
After a long time of umming and ahhing with the guys in Warhammer World retail store it struck me that Sylvaneth would be great! Typically painted in your standard greens, browns and earthy reds (as you one would expect for a tree-based army) I thought it would be a great idea to go with a brighter, out-there scheme as after all they are from a fantasy forest, and who?s to say that the sky isn’t green and the ground yellow?
I’ve always liked collecting miniatures. But once I have an idea in my head ? unless I get it all in one go ? it quickly flutters away into another radical idea.
I decided to get everything I want in one go to avoid the usual butterfly effect that I normally have and cracked on building the lot including some objectives and scenery. I like to build my collection in one go, basecoat everything the same colour then batch paint the units one by one This way I find the end product tends to be much more consistent. For the first portion of my grand project I have built all of my models and terrain ready for phase two: basecoating and test painting one of the Dryads.
