There are a bunch of inspiring threads about the Painting and Modelling Forum. All you have to do is look ;)

Here's a pic of my Treekin models. Basically made from Green Stuff, wire and Dryad parts, in a similar manner to Raindog's Treekin models (the last link of Ryikko's post :wink:).

I've also seen people use the old metal dryads and convert those into treekin.

I think that model seen above is more pricey than normal treekin. Is it so?

I thought that the dude who started this topic wanted cheap treekins!

You could not get this model alone, it was in the box with ork hero, so I got it cheap from my friend.

I made a set by Twisting wire and some modeling putty, I mostly used green stuff on the faces. I think they turned out playable. Dirt cheap :sexy:

There are some photo's in this thread.

I must be one of the weird ones but I actually like the TK models. I have a smaller model for my treeman so smaller/thin TK make my Treeman look not so tiny.

I wish I had more converting and GS skills all these conversion pics make me jealous.

Try Oak Warriors from the old MageKnight range of minis. They are about $.50 on ebay and they are the softer plastic that doesn't melt when you heat-gun it. Try em!

Sorry for the threadromancy, but does anyone know what kind of heads are on the treekin in the quoted photograph? They are simply awesome and I must get my hands on some. Cheers,

Very similar to the one you asked about.

Good call Marshal. I just picked up two off ebay for 3.24, including shipping. I'll take that anyday over a $20 dollar GW treekin. Thanks for the tip.

Wow, for the price, those are fantastic Treekin models. I just ordered 16 cast resin 40mm bases and 16 Oak Warrior models, and after shipping the grand total came to under $30! I'm psyched, thanks for the tip!

I hope they're at least slightly larger than the Dryads. Here's to hoping that they can be repainted without much hassle :roll:

One question. Size of GW Treekin compared to old(5th edition) treeman model? (the lowest one from the blister packs). Also anyone could compare the size of a new treeman with a old one?
Just ordered two GW Treekin to combine with the old treeman for a unit of 3. with the old Treeman to be the elder.
