The One Ring March Painting Challenge: Command Group Reconsidered

Posted in Lord of the Rings / Fantasy on March 9, 2012 by botwt

I’ve been having some issues with my hands due to my MS, so I’ve decided to rethink my plan of doing the Rohan Captain and Hornblower in favor of the Orc Captain and Drummer. I will need to be less perfect on these models as Orcs aren’t running about in pristine costumes. So here are the two that I’ll tackle this month.

So, this month we have to include two models…“To enter this month you MUST have a Captain and at least 1 of the following; Banner Bearer, Hornblower, Drummer (Drummers in Moria’s case), Taskmaster, Dragon Knight, Shieldbearer, Kings Huntsmen, Knight of the White Tower or Shaman (War Priest) – max of 1 of each.”  

I think that I will go with a couple of Rohan models, it has been a while since I worked on some of them…so I’ll enter my Hornblower & Captain.

My friend Miguel over on One Ring posted about the upcoming new licenses that Knight Models will be carrying soon! Looks like DC Comics, Dragon Ball and Lord of the Rings…very cool!! I know that from the photo that the Boromir and Joker are going to be mine, and I’m sure that an awesome Batman will be in the mix as well!
