Wood Elves Glade Lord on Forest Dragon finished

It´s been a while since my last post but I haven´t been lazy and finished some projects. Unfortunately, I wasn´t able to take appropriate pictures because my photo backgrounds clashed with a cup of coffee and couldn´t be used afterwards. Up to this time, I used the nice photo backgrounds from Massive Vodoo.

At the same time, I read an article on one of my favourite blogs from James Wappel. There I found the following two awesome articles about photo backgrounds:

The euphoria about these backgrounds from Hangar18  also caught me instantly and I directly had to orders some of them. Thanks, James for the Inspiration!
And while I was in shopping-mood, I also ordered a little Photo-Box for placement of the Hangar18-backgrounds.

Today is a great day because all equipment finally arrived and I was able to take some pictures. Here we go, first off with my finished Wood Elves Glade Lord on Forest Dragon.
The Glade Lord model is the new Araloth plastic kit from Games Workshop. The dragon model is the Warpfire Dragon from Warhammer Forge.

Warhammer Wood Elves Glade Lord on Forest Dragon

As following some Close-ups of the woodland base with loads of different basing material (mostly from MiniNatur).

Then some more pictures...

A comparison with my Snowy Owl, I play "as count as" Frostheart-Phoenix in my Cherry Blossom Grove army.

The background present in the last pictures is called Green Haze, my favourite one of my Wood Elves miniatures. But of course, it is not the only one I bought. On the following pics, I present some more backgrounds from Hangar18 with my Forest Dragon without the rider.

Background: Shades of Grey

Background: Northern Sky

Background: Brown Haze

Background: Marble

Background: Concrete

At least that´s how my Photo-Setup is looking at the moment.

Which background do you like most?


  1. Das ist ja schon fortgeschrittene Floristik auf deinen Bases.;) Da wünscht man sich den Frühling zurück. Zusammen mit der stimmigen Bemalung und dem dezenten Umbau ein gelungenes Projekt, das deiner Waldelfenarmee noch mehr Schauwert bietet.

  2. Brilliant how a green pattern and foresty base makes this warp dragon really fit the woodelf theme without making you think anything of it. I might take your idea, as I was already making a woodelf-highelf hybrid army. I even have the same (brilliant) owl miniature :0

My Top 10 miniature painting artists!

In this article, I would like to share with you, my 10 favorite miniature painters. Since ages, I am following the work of various amazing artists all over the world and draw so much inspiration from them! It is a beauty how the painting community grows together through the internet and everybody has the chance to look over the shoulders of those incredibly talented individuals.

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.
