Hi all, managed to do some painting recently and took a few pictures to share. I finished an Elrond which I am quite happy with. He came with a broken sword, so I scratchbuilt an OK looking replacement and painted him up.
May need to do a few more highlights on his hair. Any constructive criticism is welcome, of course.
I also managed to get some pictures of the terrain some of you had asked about. A while back I made Helm's Deep (see this thread http://www.one-ring.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=24679
), and so to fit with the book's descriptions, I also made up a trench section to represent 'Helm's Dyke', the outlying fortifications.
And finally, I'll also share a few works in progress at the moment.
Having a spare Gandalf with a broken staff, I decided to convert him into a makeshift Radagast the Brown. I sculpted a new staff for him, a hood, and an extended beard. This, combined with a suitable paintjob, should make him different enough to use as an alternate Radagast. Unfortunately the shot turned out a little blurry on him, but you get the idea and can also see the progress I made on Haldir's armour.
Finally, I've assembled and primed a Warlord Games Earl of Essex figure from their English Civil War range. Excited to paint this guy - he's full of character and should be a welcome change from the LotR range.
That's all for now - happy hobbying, and thanks for taking a look!
