Really fantastic - love the moss and the tone of the wood, last time I tried to paint Ents they ended up almost orange instead of this great grey-brown.

These are really nice miniatures it was only while surfing youtube today that I realised were they inspiration for these might have come from

Maleficient is actually a pretty great fantasy film (maybe I should say that in a quieter voice) - that battle scene has a real 'Warhammer' feel to me.

More additions to the Wealdgeist range -

- first up are some Dryads, avenging tree spirits in humanoid form,



- and the Forest Sprites, wild children of the wood,



- and last but not least, the incarnation of the eternal forest and manifestation of rebirth, the Green Man.



If you're wondering how he manages to have such wonderful flowing hair, as you can see he uses a leaf-in conditioner.





'Sir John ejaculated explosively, sitting up in his chair.' ... 'The Black Gang'.

A quick group shot, to show the Wealdgeist range (so far) and the comparative sizes.

Superb! They make me want to reread Mythago Wood (yet again ...).

That Green Man makes fantastic use of the medieval Green Man motif. And brilliant paintwork to bring him to life of course.

Have you seen the woses on the Gardens of Hecate blog?

No. Are they wed woses?

EDIT: Just seen them - very nasty and superbly done.

I love these, and you've really done them justice! Are they as yet unreleased, or old out-of-production figures? I googled Conquest Games and found nothing like this on their website. Haven't done fantasy for years, but I really think I want to buy some of these.

Lovely brushwork as always and an increasingly interesting range of figures.

I think they're to be released soon. Mike at Conquest Games tells me they're looking to fill out their 'Myths of Albion' fantasy range over the next few months, so there's more to come as well.

The forest sprites look handy for the Game of Thrones / ASoIaF gamers. I like the look of the big fellow very much. It could be a surprisingly versatile figure; fantasy, Weird ECW as mentioned,  Occult of any period and even Superheroes.

Fantastic PJs. And I love the look of the new range. Beautiful!

Really love these! I've always wanted to do a forest based army, these look like just the ticket
