    Modelling Branchnymphs

    Hi everyone

    I'm new to WE and Fantasy but have been a long time 40K player. I have spent the last few weeks browsing through the tactica section that is up here and have made some selections based on the tips there. I purchased the battalion this morning and have started the long road to force construction.

    To my question: I have looked on the box and looked around in general, while I'm a reasonably observant guy I can't for the life of me identify a Branchnymph from a Dryad. Is there a particular head/back branch that is used or is it up to player creativity?

    I was thinking I would just put something shiny on the base so I can pick it in a squad, what do all of you do?

    I too was confused by this = there is no model for this selection, so yes its up to the you to make one or more of your dryads look really different from the rest to represent the branchnymph (don't just consider the parts that you will use, but a some differences in colour would also help to highlight the model)

    For my branchnymph i got one of the old metal dryads from the bits box at my local gameing store. Also saw a cool conversion where one guy had his standing on knight getting pulled into the ground by roots. And one where a guy had used part of a demonette and parts of a dryad to make it look like she was mid transformation into war aspect.

    Thats really sweet. I'm not going to lie. Any chance you have a picture you could link here?

    To the topic: I just started using a Branchnymph. I use the Drycha model.

    I'm using the Drycha model as my Branchwraith which will be in my unit with the branchnymph. Its a good idea, it just won't work for me.

    I like the idea of a conversion, unfortunately my bits box is predominantly 40k, so unless its a space marine becoming fertilizer that idea is a little way off for me to achieve

    It's not special or particularly good looking, but the easiest way IMO is just to use the bigger arms and the brances with something in them to represent the Branchnymph. That way, also, when you're not using one, they can pretty easily pass as a regular dryad.

    (Obviously for my method to work it means that you haven't put big arms or interesting branches on any other models, which I didn't, because I actually prefer a slightly more uniform look rather than having too many stand-out individuals.)

    You've probably seen this, but just in case, it's good for painting.

    And here are some cool conversions.

    All I did was paint my models Graveyard Earth on the side of their base, and paint Bestial Brown on my Nymph.

    Why does it matter anyways? You'll be keeping it alive anyway as long as possible, and it gets moved to the front of a combat. Just take notes of which units have one and which ones don't. If you have any more than 3 units, you run the risk of picking up a dairy intolerance tbh. But, if you want to have one, you have my advice.

    You makes some good points, I'm just of the proper WYSIWYG persuasion which seems more of a 40k deal than fantasy. I prefer my base borders to be black, but it is a very valid and good idea.

    I don't recommend taking a branchnymoh for game play reasons, but if you have a model to represent one, it does give you that option.

    I do think the Drycha model is cool, but for me, it's a plain old branchwraith.
