Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have become interested in Warhammer recently and decided to buy an army. Wood Elf interests me the most, so I'm going with them.
My main question is about painting. I want to go more for an Autumn theme and was wondering if anyone could suggest what colors I should buy for this. My army will have both Dryads and Treekin, as well as Glade Guards, a Highborn, Wardancers, and, possibly, Eternal Guard.
If anyone can give me any ideas as to what paint I need to order as well as tools, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, any tips as to video guides online would be useful since I haven't painted anything since I was a kid. And, of course, any other useful tips or information.
Thank you all.

For an Autumn theme I would go for an Orange-Brown theme (duh), which looks nice and camouflaged if you do the following.
-Paint all orange or brown parts with Scorched brown.
-highlight the "Brown" areas with scorched brown mixed with fiery orange with increasing amount of fiery orange up to about 50/50
-Highlight the "orange" parts with scorched brown mixed with fiery orange up until it all orange
-Add small details in reds and yellows
I like this theme as it keeps most of the model muted which a mostly red or yellow theme would not. The splashes of red and yellow should stand out nicely and the skin tones shouldn't clash either.
Thats my 2 cents.

You can still use greens. Muddy, olive greens work well as opposed to the more vibrant greens. But primarily oranges, just mixed with brown like powerclaw suggests. Straight up orange will look weird.
Check out the vallejo ranges for some great colors.
