Wood Elves Sisters of Thorn

As for today I give you a quick update on the the Sisters of Thorn, the new unit of the Wood Elves Release. I really like the models except one thing: the awkwardly looking antlers of the mounts that look like helmet (check it out).  Because of that I decided to convert the antlers to a more realistic way and oriented myself to the following picture.

Here´s the outcome of the conversion.


Thoughts for the painting scheme:
First I have been torn between a mono white and a mono brown colour scheme. Then I found both kind of boring and also the white scheme not fitting because the mounted Characters who will join the unit also have white mounts. That´s why I took again inspiration on nature and tend to the following color scheme.

It´s far from boring and will bring some new pattern to my army which I love! Also it  is going to be more complex to paint, I´m looking forward to it.


  1. Immer wieder toll zu sehen wie du ohne Scheu derartige Umbauten in Angriff nimmst um das Gesamtbild zu verbessern. So gefallen mir die Hirsche auch gleich noch besser. Bin schon auf weitere Beitr├Ąge hier im Blog gespannt. :)

Starting a Tyranid army: Colorscheme

I've been a miniature hobbyist for over 10 years and have played a lot of different games (Warhammer Fantasy, Infinity, Frostgrave, Malifaux, Kings of War, etc.) but still hunger for more. In my gaming group, my friends convinced me to take a look at the Warhammer 40k lore. After reading a dozen books (Horus Heresy!) and pretty much got sucked into the crazy 40k lore, I decided to get into Warhammer 40.000.  As for my first 40k army choice, I was torn between the Childs of Slaanesh and Tyranids. Really love both design and lore of these 2 armies. Finally, I went with Tyranids because they are easy to paint and I wanted to get more into the lore before heavily converting some Slaanesh forces. Also, there are some stunning non-GW Tyranid designs out there (check out this Instagram account: ) and I was very curious how these models would turn out. To say it upfront: These 3D printed resin miniatures have some amazing details and very high quali

The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove

  The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove is marching to war. I recently finished 3 trees (Treeman Ancient, ordinary Treeman, and the Spirit of Durthu) for the army and now the force is nearly finished. The foundation of the Cherry Blossom Grove lies in the Old Days of Warhammer where the majority of the army consisted of Wood Elves ( Link to an old blog article from 2014 ). Since then a lot of new miniatures have been painted and added to the army and I still plan to extend the Cherry Blossom Grove further in the next couple of months and years. Painting Alarielle of course and some more Kurnoth Hunters and even thinking about a Living City detachment of the Cities of Sigmar battletome. The Sylvaneth treemen of the Cherry Blossom Grove: I converted them a little bit by extending their legs for 1-2 inches to make them taller and put some branches of the old Citadel Forest on their shoulders and backs to make them bigger.
