    ME85 - Treebeard: Mighty Ent, Citadel 1980's Vintage LOTR

    Thanks everybody!!
  3. "One of my favourite range of figures ever was Citadel's 1980's licensed "Lord Of The Rings" minis. I have finally decided to get all the miniatures I own painted up (over time) & try to acquire the ones which are missing from my collection (& paint them up too!)". Here is my next completed mini - Treebeard: Mighty Ent. I tried to keep the colours as close to Treebeard's description in the book. I guess this mini sculpt may seem a little dated by todays wonderfully elaborate standards but I think it has it's own charm especially in his warm characterful face. Comments & thoughts always welcome! Thanks for looking & "Hrum Hoom"!

    How to use Silicone Molds?

    I would try talc also. I use it when making stamped bases out of green stuff - works a treat! There is such a thing a "mold release spray" but I'm not sure if it's suitable for your purposes?

    Great stuff!! I have this mini also (squirellled away somewhere in my catacombs...) Citadel FA15 - Dwarf with 2 handed hammer. Do I get a prize for being over a decade older than it?

    03423 Cerberus, Hound Of Hell

    The mini's dimensions (approx) are - length = 70mm, width = 30mm, height = 30mm. The base is 50mm diam (plastic). The mini does have an integrated metal base which can be seen here. Thank you!

    Awesome! Fantastic work all round.
  10. I started constructing my T'Raukzul about 9 months ago, The only structural work I did was in pinning the areas where the wings meet the body, I also filled any large gaps with green stuff. Other than painting her wings, I have not worked on her since. Looking at her today, I can report that her legs and stance are fine. Her right wing isn't however. Whereas before it stretched upwards higher than the left wing, it now curves from the "hand" to the two first long "fingers" to the same height as the left wing. It's not unattractive but it has definately wilted a bit!

    Thanks! I was aiming for an ancient bronze effect.

    77007 Skeletal Spearman - Bones

    Thanks! I did try this before painting & got it straight but ultimately the spear just went back to how it was. I will try again though.
