Just got Lords of Middle earth and I'm painting my minis.
I used the color of the respective factions for the base of each companion (including Elrond and Galadriel), and silvery bluish white for the Hobbits and Gandalf as they nation is "Free Peoples/Generic" (and the bluish is because they are from the North region).

Do the Ents have any nation of affiliation? Which color do you recomend for Treebeard base? I'm also using pure white for the leaders (no silvery bluish), so that is an option, but I would like to avoid it for the companions (even more so because treebeard has no leadership).

Treebeard is not affiliated with a Nation.

I know that he isn't, but still I would like to see where is it best to fit him in my color scheme.

My choices are:
+ Silvery White for "Free People"
+ White for Army Leader (probably bad choice, since he is no a Leader per se)
+ Dark Green for Rohan (he is sort of affiliated with Rohan due to its card rules, but it is a bit of stretch)

I suppose this could be done in many different ways.

I have painted all base/BotTA/LOME/WOME models.

My army units and leaders all have bases in their national colours (same as map borders).

All SP faction models have grey bases and FP faction models (including the ents) have light green bases.

All SP characters have black bases while FP characters have sand coloured bases.

Since Treebeard is a FP character I painted his base sand.

If you get the Warriors of Middle Earth expansion, there is a card in there that lets you use Treebeard as a companion for all rules purposes, so I painted one of my Ents as Treebeard with a base to match. In my case, that is a white base with a silver border.
