This is an old Grenadier Balrog that i recently rediscovered owning. I decided to go ahead and paint him up; he's only been waiting for....a while. Yeah, let's just leave it at that. No numbers... Anyway, I did my usual, hopefully decent tabletop paint job on him. I was stuck on his sword for a while; I really didn't know where to go with it. I finally decided to try to paint it up sorta resembling fire. If I'd been thinking before I started painting him, I would've tried sculpting some flames on the flat parts of the sword blade. Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20, right? I was also considering doing some OSL on him, but chickened out on that. Maybe next time... Please let me know what you think.
Hey everyone, it has been a long time since I posted any WIPs or finished paint jobs. I sort of moved out of my house to move in with my girlfriend and in doing that and moving between places I didn't get around to doing much painting. When I was packing some of my things I found an old box full of old hobby stuff. Inside I found lots of old lord of the rings material and some finished and unfortunately broken miniatures. Among them I found the Balrog, which looked pretty banged up, head was off, one of his wings had broken off too.. When I painted those minis roughly 17 years ago I was very fresh in painting metal minis and never even heard of pinning. First I thought I would fix him and retouch the damaged spots, but then I thought it would be cool to re do the whole thing and this time not paint him up like the Balrog but like a sort of Ice variant of the fire beast. Cleaning was pretty easy with some alcohol. I fixed him up and decided to extend the flames on his back with some greenstuff. This was about 2 months ago. Since I do not really have a fixed hobby space yet and been really busy with lots of other stuff I only started painting again last week. Progress up till now Any C&C is as always much appreciated
