modded Games Workshop Eowyn

Recommended Posts

Last night my D&D group went back to our Lord of the Rings campaign where I play a young Beastmaster from Rohan. (We're playing the Rolemaster rule set.) I had an Eowyn figure I wanted to mod a little (add fluffier hair and leaves, and a fur stole) to make into my character, you can see my initial playing around with green stuff here.
I started painting this figure at 11am and it took me 6 hours from start-to-finish. (Had to leave at 5pm to get to our gaming session.)






It was a fun challenge limiting myself to 6 hours. I wanted to paint something that was good enough for the table, but not my usual 'I'm going to spent days and days on this figure!' I know I could have sped my time up a little by using metal paint and washes on the chain mail, but I think everyone is aware by now of my weird animus towards metal paints.

The eyes seem like she has been crying or something, though.

She looks cool. She has a more rugged/living in nature look.

She looks like she's been sleeping in a leaf pile. It's a great effect, very ranger-y.


And the freehand on the cloak is beautiful.

Thanks guys and thank you for the critiques! She was a harder mini to paint than anything I have painted before, she is slightly smaller than my other minis.

      I don't particularly care myself, I've been playing Kings of War since right before 2nd edition and intend to stick with Mantic, but I find it fascinating that they think people who already scrapped their square bases are willing to return to a system run by the very company that asked them to rebase in the first place.

      Orks are terrific, aren’t they? While the aesthetics and logic behind most 40k factions tries to toe the line between Full Blanche and minimally plausible weapons of war, the Space Orks just embrace the most absurd logic (a red paint job actually makes it go faster).
      This conversion was created by my client- and I really love it. Orks looting vehicles from Imperial factions is always great, but there’s something especially amazing about looting the claw of a titan and turning it into a tank.
      For the paint job, the titan claw is meant to look like the Orks painted over the original Titan’s color scheme. To this end, some of the scratches in the red show blue and imperial insignias and patterns underneath.

      Presenting Slimux (A Demon Gardener) and Mulch (His loyal Plough Snail), characters from the Nurgle Demon faction for the Warhammer games by Games Workshop.
      Glad to get this one finished at last, it's been sitting at around 80% done for about a year.
      I'm really happy with how Mulch turned out, less so with Slimux, I think I just used too many similar colours on him (and yellow eyes wasn't a great idea either).
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Volturnos, a character from the Idoneth (or Sea Elf) faction in the Warhammer:- Age of Sigmar game by Games Workshop.
      Not my best work, I struggled in quite a few places (particularly with the fish) so a lot of it has ended up being painted rather basically, even by my standards.
      But I did get it finished, so I'll count this as a partial victory.
