The big LotR project for me. With an Anniversary coming up, my gf has been kind enough to ask if I'd like some other GW stuff on top of a Mumak! God bless Arwen-obsessed women who paint elves :D So, expanding on my Red Eye Orcs, this is the big plan, and a record to make sure I stick to it :p .

2. Pictures of WIP

These guys are at a basic standard, and need washes and a base touch up before I move on to some men.

They look good, for such a basic stage. I will be curiouse to see how they turn out, especially the skin. How do you plan on doing that, with ink washes?

Looking foreward to the next update. :)

Thank you :D This thread is mainly for my benefit, but a kind word is always a good motivator.

Currently thinking make a wash from thinned dark angels green for the skin, codex grey for the clothes, and the armour from a thinned metallic (probably dwarf bronze) and see how they look on a test mini. Failing that, brown all over.

The main aim is to make for a strong mass effect, rather than individual greatness.
