As for the Treeberad art: I do like it. When I read Lord of the Rings it always strikes me how different Ents are from other folk. Their language, their ideas and values, the way they convey thoughts, it is all very unique. From a human perspective Ents are somewhat weird. There is this certain disconnection between Ents and other peoples, as if a barrier that sometimes does not allow for perfect communication and blurs the mutual understanding. And, with all that, to me Treebeard should look weird. He should be twisted, out of this world, treeish. Not just a man dressed for a tree.
The only thing I perhaps dislike about the art are the eyes. "But at the moment the hobbits noted little but the eyes. These deep eyes were now surveying them, slow and solemn, but very penetrating. They were brown, shot with a green light. Often afterwards, Pippin tried to describe his first impression of them". This is completely lost in Mike Nash's vision. But regardless, it is a very nice painting.
And generally, it is good to have diversity in art. Each of the three Ents spoiled so far is quite distinctive. With the Treebeard a bit "weird" or "twisted", the Wandering Ent being a rather standard Ent portrayal, to the Booming Ent which looks almost as from Warhammer (nothing wrong with that).
It is just fun to see different creations. I like it much better than, say, the Woses in Druadan Forest. Do not get me wrong, they were portrayed very well. But they were mostly painted by the same artist. While it adds to the cohesiveness of the set, it would perhaps be nicer to see how also other artists imagine Woses. For instance, you could compare how the Hilderbrand brothers depicted them (http://images6.fanpo...24-1300-986.jpg). Totally different image. I love when LotR LCG takes me on a trip through re-imaginations of Tolkien's universe. It is a bit a shame to waste an opportunity to showcase various art. Still, I cannot complain. Hell, I even fancy the weird angle on the Seagal Elrond. Perhaps I am too easily pleased.
