The Sylvaneth represent the living forest armies of Alarielle, a veritable botanists dream (or nightmare) of lumbering tree (and possibly shrub) entities raised from Soulpods to become an army of nature. This organic, natural look of the army provides the perfect starting point to take inspiration from plants from our world in your conversion, able to explore some of the most bizarre and stunning creations of nature in our own world and put an Age of Sigmar spin onto it.
With the Realms each channelling unique forces of magic you can also explore what it means to be nature and to survive in each realm, from potentially blood sucking roots in Shyish to Carniverous people-traps in Ghur as the forest itself becomes predator. Each route you take allows you to then expand your army and look to ever more unique themes.
Channelling the organic nature of the army the right placemenet of branches or foliage and dramatically change the shape of a model, as shown Treelord Ancient from @zacgoldenhall below. These cosmentic changes bring a whole new life and vibrancy to a model a and flowing shape of the kit makes it very receptive to greenstuff without worrying about achieving hard edges.
