  1. I realize it's not the weekend, but the week was quite busy and I'm happy to have got any of this done at all. BATTLE REPORT! This little wizard's focus for me was going to be brighter colors and trying to do skin and hair better. I think it came out pretty well. Wins: * The base color of red tone and highlighting upward to flesh tone seems to be a good mix. * Keeping to adjacent colors on the color wheel made for a pleasing, eye-catching combo. I have to say using the reds, oranges, and browns was pretty fun. * I did as much highligh
  2. hey guys, Started from that big guy (a LOTR figurine) ; With a Grenadier 28mm for comparison scale then after a surgical action ; Cheers Eric
  3. This is a thread about the fellowship of the ring. First is Aragorn. On and on the whole group will come in this thread.
  4. Having painted a certain number of orcs I've decided that I better get onto my Riders of Rohan force. They are a combination of Footsore's germanic tribes and some Riders from GW's new starter box. Started with some horses: In front are some bare horses from Eureka that I used to test some schemes. They are quite tiny but should make good objective markers. This is the guide I used. I have 8 more horses and am thinking I need some more Bay and Brown horses.
  5. I can stop buying orcs at any time, I promise... But for now I have a few boxes of plastic Uruk Hai from GW. Here they are being glued to washers And some test models, testing both a color scheme and different primers (as you can see). Basecoated Then washed The pikes: Basecoated Then washed
  6. I have these plastic LotR mini busts for practice before going to a fancy one. Got 10 for $15 or so on Ebay a while back. The material is gummy, unlike Bones, and even a sharp Xacto doesn't take off mold lines. But hey, cheap practice! Work so far on Elrond.
  7. Hello All, I'm starting this thread to show my 10mm Warmaster armies that are currently done and the progress to finish them and the long just sitting there in a box LOTR Warmaster armies. I was inspired to have a look at this project again after seeing Lowylowlycook's 10mm LOTR armies that he's looking at putting together. Currently this is its status Good Evil some eastern figures which I bought (don't think they are available anymore) and 2 boxsets of the original game. as you can see quite a lot to do, but hopefully
  8. A while back I made a travel set for Kings of War using 10mm minis. Most of the models I used were definitely inspired by the Lord of the Rings and ever since I've been mulling the idea of doing a full scale game. Recently my main gaming buddy and I went though a bad patch were we seemed to have no willpower to resist buying new games and taking on new projects. Part of that fall from grace was my deciding to go ahead and buy some stuff. You know A few models. Maybe a few armies. Just a bit. Overall the plan is to use 100mmX50mm scenic bases. The number of models
  9. This is a Mithril M69 Silvan Seer I painted up as an elven necromancer character. buckyball
  10. My take on one of the LotR mice from Cartoon Miniatures. I've been told he looks like Splinter the rat cosplaying as Gandalf.
  11. About five or six years ago I received the Knight Models 75mm Boromir as a Christmas gift. I started to assemble the pieces and became intimidated by what I needed to do to 1) finish assembly and 2) actually paint him. Last year I finally worked up the nerve to start painting, got some base colors and his face started, then again lost my nerve and drive. A couple of months ago I at last took Boromir off my shelf-of-unlimited-opportunity and started working. I finally finished him. Front view: Back view: Three-quarter view:
  12. Greetings everyone! 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. Angrypantz
  13. 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 Horde: The Great Goblin h
  14. 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: cave a.bmp
  15. 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. buckyball
  16. 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.
  17. This time, we have a themed group. I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband. Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources. The group: "Nabin, Desert Ranger" by Reaper: "Rasia, Bladedancer" by Reaper: "Watchers of Karna" from GW's LotR line: "Revolting Peasant" by West Wind Wargames Foundry: "Corsairs of Umbar" from GW's LotR line:
  18. As usual, in the last painting binge, I wound up with a few pieces who didn't group with the others. They're all intended for Frostgrave, but they're more random Soldiers and encounters than anything else. Some group shots: The Barbarian Chief from the recent Gnickstarter: The Trap Expert and Tunnel Fighter from the same source: Some random terrain or Treasure Tokens made from old Warhammer standards: A Bard (Reaper Miniatures) A rather sinister Apothecary, who started life as a Plague Doctor from Reaper's "Pathfinder" line:
  19. The hobbits from Games Workshop's Lord of the Rings line. Frodo Merry (I think)
  20. http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/oct/23/jrr-tolkien-middle-earth-annotated-map-blackwells-lord-of-the-rings Apparently this was one of the printed fold-out maps from an earlier edition which Tolkien made notes on for illustrator Pauline Baynes to make a big color poster of in 1970. It has various jotted notes in pencil and green ink and is being offered by Blackwell's Rare Books for £60,000.
  21. Hi! I'm feeling a little bit guilty as I haven't posted anything in the "show off" board for a while because I am putting all my energies into my current WIP. So, today I was looking at some mini projects that I painted a while ago & I thought that you might like a look at one of them here. This Lord Of The Rings themed diorama is something I did about 10 years ago when the films were first released & GW were producing the minis. The diorama depicts the moment just before......... well, I'm sure you all know what happens next? I won't spoil it if you haven't seen the films y
  22. As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Again some simple paint jobs, this time around I am trying out some colour combinations for dark cloaks, that are supposed to be black. But painting black straight up black really does not work all that well, the minis simply become...Not sure how to put this...lesser? I have a really nice black cloaked figure lined up for painting, but painting it straight
  23. The last (currently) painted "proper" model from my Moria army - aside from extra models that will be roped in like my GW Orc & Goblin War Machines, and other monsters from Reaper Bones and such. The first Moria Troll from GW's Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring range. I painted this guy using GW's studio model a general guide, and somewhat followed their scheme and style of blending between the flesh tones and the blackened skin, as well as the flesh between the cracks. Since I followed their scheme it's most likely a fair bit brighter than the actual movie CGI model, but hey.
  24. Some more newish stuff. These three are the top end of the Moria Goblin Army I've painted up for LotR SBG and KoW (and WotR if I ever actually play it). Durbûrz, the Goblin King of Moria will lead the forces until Golfimbal on Foot and Mounted are finished, and no doubt sometimes even then. I experimented a little using some Seraphim Sepia wash on his armour to try and give it a "gold" feel, as befits a king. It didn't exactly work for gold, but I didn't want a shiny, nice, bright gold anyway. Still, it looks decent anyway on him, and different enough from the standard muddy-steel lo
