I’ve been itching to start this project as it will involve a very different painting style compared to Space Marines. It will, therefore, require different skills and provide a new set of experiences. In particular, I’m really looking forward to testing out my fine detail airbrush game!
The Paint Scheme
After reading the Sylvaneth Battle Tome I found myself to have an affinity with the Harvestboon glade. They are a youthful clan, not as ‘regal’ or ‘twisted’ as some other clans and they fit with the spring seasonal theme I want to base my models with.
The Harvestboon colours mainly focus on greens with a more sombre accent of softer tones... but also with some bright yellow/green foliage.
I plan to add a fair amount of detail to the bases of my models. I have a pack of Daffodil tufts as well as ‘Spring’ leaves. Whilst I haven’t tested any of these materials out yet, my aim is to sparingly use a combination of these two materials alongside some static grass over a brown texture base.
I’ll follow this post up with a WIP of the Dryads as soon as I can.
