The Chubby Tree Ents are from irregular, The skinny Tree Ent is from the microworld range.
The Pegasus is from Irregular, as is the Wood elf on horse- He came as a leader figure as part of the lesser goblin army deal. I think he is one of their not-nazguls on horseback, but not 100% on which code he is. Green paint was the only conversion he needed to become a wood elf hero instead!
Chubby Tree Ent from irregular again. The Giant Eagle is a 10mm wood elf eagle rider code from Pendraken miniatures. Their 10mm range has a lot of useful codes that work well for 6mm fantasy & Epic 40k. I use a lot of odds and ends from them, especially for monsters and mutants. The base 'crew' is from Microworld, a spare Spearman and a wizard from out the character pack. Thats 2mm brass rod, buried in to green stuff and cork tile. The eagle is a great sculpt, but its damn heavy, the flimsy metal stand its supplied with it looks great- it has rocks carved in to it, but it wouldn't hold an ant steady!
The Microworld wood elves are some of the best miniatures I have ever painted- the sculpts are fantastic, they almost paint themselves! Its hard to see from the regular sized photo, but the full sized version, you can see wear I was able to paint on the embroidery on the inside of the commanders cloak! I've never viewed myself as a fantastic painter, but these came out brilliantly, a testament to the quality of the sculpts more than my painting ability!
