Angry Trees!

The famous Bob Ross liked to paint happy little trees, it turns out that my trees aren’t so happy and want you to get off their lawn. Sorry Bob, but sometimes happy trees won’t cut it and you need some angry foliage…


These are some Waldgeist (or is it Waldgeists?) I painted for the Malifaux sub-reddit Hobby Commitment Challenge for the month of May. I am really happy with how these guys came out. I have been working on these angry little trees alongside my Iron Painter entry and they gave me a great chance to try out the paint scheme I wanted to use for the wood flooring on that piece. These also gave me a chance to try out a method for doing long grass that turned out great!

So without further ado, I am Groot!

I look forward to bringing my angry trees along with Marcus’ magnificent menagerie soon. As Waldgeist are Neverborn, I’ll also be able to bring them along with The Dreamer or with the new Lilith crew I received for my birthday. Now that these guys are finished it’s time to figure out what will be hitting my painting table next…

Update: Since initially posting this I have discovered that the proper pluralization of Waldgeist should be Waldgeister; Waldgeist directly translates from German to “Forrest Spirit” which I suppose is a pretty accurate description of them. I have also arbitrarily decided that a group of Waldgeister with henceforth be known as a Copse of Waldgeister.
