Although it's ugly, he did a GREAT job painting it!

I don't think that GW Treemen look that bad! :)

sheesh... It's suberbly painted but looks like a Nurgle daemon.

I'm a fan of the GW treeman though, it's decent looking and very convertable.

I'm starting to get the impression that GW has NEVER been able to do treemen.

... well at least it doesn't look like a greater demon of Nurgle. The current Treemen look great imo. I actually purchased one the other day, I hope I do it justice.

I think the GW treeman is alright. At certain angles it seems a little insect-like, but generally it looks great. Take a look at mine that I easily converted from spare parts and paper mache'.

I like the new GW treeman a lot - in fact I think it's the best treeman they've ever done in WH (not saying much, since previous treemen have been abysmal).

That said, Treebeard from LotR is still the best-looking treeman around.

I use one new GW treeman for my regular treeman, and one old Durthu model that I've painted in Autumnal colours as my Ancient.

You know who makes a fine treeman? Glenn Lamprecht. I came across his army in a New Zealand White Dwarf, before seeing his completed Treeman in an American one. I thought it to be too Nurgle-ish, but I found it to be more and more impressive as time went on. It really has a sense of age, as it incorporates lots of moss, fungus, and lichen elements into the wood. He assembled it from Treemen from a number of GW ranges, and even threw in a Great Unclean One belly for more texture. He used a winter theme, so an overall lack of leaves is justified.

I couldn't track down a link to it, unfortunately.

Build it up so much that we're all on tender hooks then dash our hopes why don't you :P . Sounds interesting though, I'll do some research.

ugly treeman, but a AWESOME nurgle daemon/un-dicided daemon :blink:

As for our current Treeman... nope, I stick to the 5th edition treemen.
Looks 10 times better.
