ive been looking at some of the reaper stuff for some time and want to know what miniatures scale best with Games Workshops LotR stuff. I want to avoid heroic scale miniatures for the time being just for personal preferences.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

After backing it on Kickstarter, I was inspired by Nord Games "Revenge of the Horde" bestiary for D&D 5E. I liked their very "The Hobbit" inspired cave Goblins...backwards underground isolated and mutated.
After some negotiations, I got a friend's old "Escape from Goblin Town" set, and put some paint to it. They've been through a large number of flesh revamps, and the close-ups show the slightly gritty texture from a primer malfunction. I'm happy with them overall, although I'm still not sure how I like the way their hair came out.
The Great Goblin himself. I think he'd be useful as a Fomorian leader or the like.
Wise Snot, you're not a mutant! How did you sneak in here?

Another recent project, some of the cave Goblins from The Hobbit's "Escape from Goblin Town" boxed set.
I had been looking for a set after getting Nord Game's "Revenge of the Horde" 5E monster manual. Their obviously Peter Jackson inspired designs inspired me in turn:
A friend is planning a move and trying to downsize his collection, so his "Escape from Goblin Town" became mine.
Here's the first few:
And a close-up. I may make them a bit more pallid:
I didn't think to start posting these here until now. But this was the Mithril miniature I painted for February. It is called Tom Bombadil and the Badgers.
Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow; bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow.
Another figure from the Thanksgiving paint binge. This is a metal Games Workshop LOTR figure I got in a box of random stuff. I don't know the model number or what set he comes from (if any).
I sawed off his original base so I could mount him on one that is the same in style as my other LOTR figures. Painted him in an autumnal color scheme, which turned out to be pretty close to the box art, except for my bright Pumpkin Orange cloak.
