Slowly starting to work my way though back posts. May take a few months! This is a really really fun army. It's very well rendered and has a distinctive and striking palette.

Amazing!
I´ve always liked your army and now I come back after a pause and see one of the most beautiful trees I´ve seen.
The branches of leaves don´t look like those brass leaves you linked earlier, where did you get them from? (I really need to work on my Elves too...)
For the name... I don´t know how you keep it, but I like using gaelic words for elvish.
Oir Crainn?
It means golden tree, lame I know but maybe it helps you out XD

Firstly, a very Happy New Year to you all - here's hoping 2014 brings us some new models and a new Army Book!

Thank you all for your very kind and encouraging comments. They are very welcomed and a pleasure to read. I'm making slow but steady progress on the next unit of Glade Guard and then I'm going to do a Great Eagle or two.

Serafin - the foliage is preserved sesame blossom. Hard to come by here in the UK but pretty common in the US (where mine came from). I actually trimmed the foliage from a spare tree I had from the range I bought from Sterling Models which I used to make my 'free' wood. I hope that helps. Finally, thank you very much for the name suggestion - I really like the concept of using Gaelic and will use that more widely for the Army. Thanks once again.

Finally finished another Glade Guard unit taking my Army to 1500pts. I can't believe it has taken me 3 years to get only this far but I was never in a rush and in truth, there are other priorities in life. Sorry for the poor photo but taking an Army shot is not as easy as I thought.

Will be taking a break from this Army for a while. Partly work related but also to turn my hand to another project. I'm hoping however new Wood Elf models later in the year will be my inspiration to return to it and get the Army up to 2000pts.

Cheers

Your WE army is awesome! I really like the colour scheme you have gone with, and your painting is great. White is not easy to paint.

The glade riders are particularly nice, as is the watch tower and custom made Treeman/kin. Though the treeman looks a little to friendly for my taste :)

All together the army is even more impressive. It's breathtakingly beautiful, both by the painting skill and the choice of colours. I especially like the smoothness and elegance of it all, to which the wise treeman (rather than a really menacing moster) fits perfectly.
I hope you will return lured by new models, I would really love to see more of this army.

Thank you all so much for such wonderful comments. This has been a hugely supportive forum and I have enjoyed the interaction with such enthusiastic and talented modellers. I will continue to watch everyones updates and I'm looking forward to the surge of Asrai activity when our new models come in.

Rowena - thanks for your long term support. It has been greatly appreciated and I'm delighted that you enjoy the army so much. :thumbsup:

Wow - it really has been 3 years since you started this. I remember giving the first comment - how time flies! The army really does look good though. So unique and really well painted.

Hi Tenaka, Beautiful and truely unique army you've created. Great work.

I was only wondering what type of leaves you used for the watchtower :) What brand or site etc?
Have been looking for those/similar looking ones for quite a while now, but can't really find anything that looks as good.

Greetings.

WilcoH - sorry for the slow reply. It's been many months since I've been on Asrai. The leaves are Sesame Bloom, also known as Candytuft or Peppergrass. I actually stripped them from a spare birch tree I ordered from Stirling Models in the US that I used to make the Birch Glade. Their trees are superb and their packaging ideal for posting around the world - I live in the UK - not the US.

I hope your project goes well.

Thanks everyone else for your kind comments. It'd be nice to return to Asrai with some new models. I think the Sisters would suit the theme of this Army well. Just have to finished off a Beastmen Army first.
