Angmar Spectres

Posted in Lord of the Rings / Fantasy on July 29, 2012 by botwt

Decided to work up three more Spectre conversions for my Angmar army. Used a ruined Meriadoc Brandybuck, a savaged Halbarad and a messed up King of Men that were laying in the bottom of my bits drawer as the bases to these miniatures. Merry had no arms, the Halbarad model was armless and headless and the King’s left arm was mangled, also no head. I worked around those missing/damaged parts to look like they were amputees on the hobbit and king; Halbarad however was treated to the head and arms of a Mantic ghoul miniature. For the hobbit’s head I used a plastic orc head and sculpted hair onto it; the King of Men became an elf with a spare Celeborn head.

Scibor’s New Dwarven Ruins

Scibor Monstrous Miniatures has a new set of Dwarven Ruins Terrain that would look amazing for either a Lord of the Rings or other fantasy gaming board. And at 23.10 € it will definitely end up in my collection.

The One Ring July Painting Challenge: Frodo (Finished)

Put in nearly 8 hours on Saturday with another 6 hours on Sunday and I finally finished off all three of these models today. I am pretty happy overall…photography doesn’t really do them justice as I still am getting the feel for my camera and really need to get a better lens.

The One Ring July Painting Challenge: Frodo (Addendum)

Well, I am pounding away at these two hobbits and figured that I might as well try to tackle Gollum as well. So I assembled and converted this model to go along with the Two Towers versions of Sam and Frodo.

The One Ring July Painting Challenge: Frodo (Part II)

Posted in Lord of the Rings / Fantasy on July 6, 2012 by botwt

Well, I got on a little roll tonight and started getting some flesh tones, eyes and hair on these two along with the base color to their cloaks. Still more blending to do on their faces, but at least I have a start on these guys and am not waiting until the end of the month like I did with the Witch-king.

The One Ring July Painting Challenge: Frodo

Posted in Lord of the Rings / Fantasy on July 6, 2012 by botwt

For this challenge I am going to try to capture the color scheme of both Frodo and Samwise from The Two Towers film. This color palette will allow me to be a bit more forgiving with the crispness to the paint job as both characters are going to be a bit dirty. Hopefully I can pull off two models in one month…hehe.
