Welcome to Librarium Online!
Would appreciate some thoughts and comments on my scratchbuild Treeman, you can find it on CMON here http://www.coolminiornot.com/126604. Cheers.
that hat does look sweeet
Ok fellows we have a difficult task, so we have to be more deadly than everyday.

Tactics are nice but it is violence that wins the day.
Thanks guys. This is my first scratchbuild model, it's not a "conversion"!!!! It's 120mm tall, mounted on a wood base with a core of cork's and wire armature which is strengthened with a skin of milliputt in the delicate areas. Many people have commented on the "tophat" it appears to be wearing, I can't see it myself. It took a long time to make and I enjoyed making it immensely. Now it just needs a loving home with a wood elf player!
thats awsome! maybe if you primed it people wouldnt see the tophat. but if you're trying to sell it, i guess you better not.
now i have a question. could you actualy use that as a treeman?
I don't see why you wouldn't be able to. Probably not in a tournament - although i have no idea on rules for using scratchmade stuff. The circular base is gonna be a no no so I'm told, but the central base should be the correct size if you are that worried it can be easily removed from the 60mm and remounted on a square 50mm. This treeman is more interesting than the GW one for sure. If I was a wood elf player I personally would buy it because I like to have different armies. If everyone just bought the GW stuff and fielded the same old units that I think this hobby would probably not be half as much fun as it is.
what do you mean you would buy it? you made it so you have it.
I'm just saying in response to your question "can you use it a s a treeman?" if I was browsing on the net and saw it, I wouldn't be worrying about the game legalities of using it. I like different models.
ooh. im worrying because im thinking of making a treeman instead of buying one for 45 bucks. and if i make it and i cant use it i would have wasted time and greenstuff
