  1. 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..
