Lord of the Rings in 28mm

Recommended Posts

On top of all that 10mm stuff, the releases of the Oathmark plastic lines (so far Dwarves and Orcs) from Northstar tempted me to start some Lord of the Rings inspired armies in 28mm.  These will be for Lion/Dragon Rampant and thus each force will be 50ish figures or so.  I also got some dark age miniatures from Footsore to be the Rohirrim.  I'll need to look up some horse painting guides before starting them in earnest.  

 

I'd like to keep these fairly quick to paint so I'm doing a test on 3 minis.   The idea is to have basecoats, a bit of shading and some lining and then hit them with the appropriate Polyshades.

Basecoated with a bit of shading  I'd like to take credit for finally doing a shield transfer but these transfers stick on before you wet and remove the backing so there isn't the usual process.

With Polyshades added.   Tudor (black on the non orcs, a mix of tudor and walnut) If anything I think they're  are still a bit bright.    Maybe paint them darker or mix up the tutor can more.   Hmmmmmm.

 

Any thoughts?
