  1. "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 - Gandalf. It's actually part of a blister of 3 minis (ME1 - Fellowship Heroes) which also includes Strider & Frodo. He was quite nice to paint overall - not too complicated either. Thanks for looking!
  2. GW Gandalf The White & Shadowfax

    Hi All! I've just been rearranging my display shelves & have noticed that I actually have a few minis that I have never shown on these boards. They are the first ones that I painted a few years ago when I returned to the hobby after many, many years. I will show the others soon but to begin with, here's GW's Gandalf The White & Shadowfax. The actual paint job is essentialy me getting back in the swing of things by copying the image on the miniatures' packaging, I made the base terrain(s) using air drying clay, gravel & sand & added some grass clumps to finish. Gandalf on foot Gandalf mounted on Shadowfax Back soon with something "big, ferocious & wingy" - thanks for looking!
  3. Khael Stonekindle, Dwarf Wizard

    Next up, my first non-monstrous Bones attempt: Jason Wiebe's Khael Stonekindle. He was part of my fantabulous Secret Sophie haul from LittleBluberry. Thanks, LB! I was so-so level of happy with him, in the end. I attached him to a resin base I got from a local dude who puts out bases and the like under the name "Models and Minis." It wasn't completely perfect, but I thought it made a cool and very fitting base for him. Imagine it'd've been a lot easier, actually, with a mini without a robe hanging down, huh. Thanks for looking!
  4. 77054: Galladon

    Another in my set of show-off posts while I am on break (the mister reminded me it was until I go back, not Xmas, so you guys are stuck with these for another couple weeks yet). Painted this guy way earlier this year, in what feels like forever ago, so the paint job isn't as good as I can do now, though it's nice to see that I am maybe making some progress. I just liked it for the idea, granted a lot of folks have done it a lot better. Anyways, enjoy and thanks!
  5. Gandalf the Short

    What kind of head is that on the staff anyhow? Lioness?
  6. When I'm able to focus, and manage to remember, I like to participate in the monthly painting challenges over at The One Ring webpage, which is a great community of Tolkien/Miniatures gaming enthusiasts. Sometimes I check their page too late, sometimes I forget for months at a time, sometimes I select a figure but just don't finish (or start!), and sometimes I actually manage to finish the model on time. This month, I managed the latter. This Gandalf is from one of the very early boxed sets, circa around 2000. I bought it back in the day, and haven't exactly been quick when it comes to painting it. In fact, I don't think I've completed any of them. Well, excepting Gandalf now. I never got around to really playing the game in any meaningful way, so most of my interaction with the LotR line has consisted of collecting them. Gandalf is a pretty simple figure, so I went with a bluish-grey rather than the almost brownish, dirty grey from the film in an attempt to add a bit of (muted) colour and interest to the figure – also so his beard would contrast with the clothing once it was all highlighted. I'm quite happy with the outcome, especially since the model was also a speedpaint, and something a bit left field - since I wasn't planning to paint any Fellowship-type models at the moment. I only started the figure yesterday afternoon, and he's done in just a bit over 24 hours. I rarely manage to do it, but there's something especially rewarding about finishing a figure in a day. Or in this case, 2 days. Regardless, a lot nicer than my usual, which is months or even years to finish figures. My previous attempt to paint a Gandalf model petered out and the model hasn't been touched since 2010..
