"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"!
Sometime in the middle of 2018 I pulled out this old GW Mordheim Ogre Mercenary mini, and poked at it a bit, intending on painting him up pretty quickly. If I remember correctly, I did the base intending on using it for the dire boar, but then decided that it didn’t work for that mini. I have only a vague idea of how I primed it, but I think I mixed Reaper’s Brush On White Primer with… Grey Liner? Maybe? After priming it I started painting the flesh with… maybe Tanned Shadow? Maybe Ruddy Flesh? Since then I haven’t done anything with it, and he’s been looking at me accusingly the whole time.

So time to get it done.
Going back over the skin, I reblocked in with Ruddy Flesh. I used a bit of Walnut Brown to darken it for the shadows, and Rusty Red for the nose, cheeks, ears, and lip to make it look more fleshy. I used Linen White for the eyes, teeth and nails. Both the teeth and nails are going to need significant yellowing.
The shirt was painted with Muddy Olive, while the jacket was painted with Rusty Red, while just about everything else has been painted with Walnut Brown.
More to come!
Tzeentch has always been one of my favorite parts of the Warhammer 40,000 and Age of Sigmar settings. I love both the concepts behind the Changer of Ways and the brilliant deformed mutants and demons that form his legions.
Here are some Tzeentch minis that I’ve gotten to paint up recently. They’re actually from a few separate clients who were all excited about Tzeentch in this similar color schemes.
Update: finished 4 of my 8 bretonnian knights horses. Gonna take a break before doing the last 4.
I based my gw horses on 2x2 “large” bases so that they fill the proper space for pathfinder and d&d. They are to the right so that someone who is mounted can place their mini to the left to designate that it is mounted.
Bases were made by stamping green stuff into textured stamps. I think these are gonna be pretty useful on the board. I've had a lot of trouble showing whether someone was on their horse or not, and it involved a lot of mini swaps.
These guys are the horses from the "Freeguild Pistoliers" set. I'm also working on a set of "Bretonnian Knights" horses to be based in the same manner that have barding on them. Those are still a WIP, but I'll update this topic when they're done. :)
The next phase of the army has started. 10 wolf riders, as well as an extra orc mounted on a boar.
