    Re: Lord of the Rings various adventures in Middle Earth

    Thank you!

    While I don't have any great progress to report middle earth-wise,
    at least, here's an undead orc:


    Unfortunately I didn't take any before and after pics, but this one was done with contrast paints over a "reinforced" zenithal highlight basecoat step where I highlighted some of the more prominent pieces and ridges after the zenithat spray of white over gray. I quite like how that turned out and i think it made painting him quite a bit faster.

    Another piece painted during one of the lockdowns but not photographed so far:



    Really nice kit, great fun to paint. I'd really like to combine several of these sets to make a bigger building . . Well, maybe one day...

    That is wonderful work on a wonderful kit. There is a video on YouTube of some one making larger and different structures out of these kits (zorpazorp maybe...).
    Edit: found it: link.

    Thank you! And for the link as well. In a strange failure of The Algorithm, i hadn't heard of him before. Those are some great ideas! Now I'll definitely have to get some multiples of that kit

    Re: Lord of the Rings various adventures in Middle Earth

    I already did these last year but only managed to take a pic just now:



    I basically just painted them to try out some things with the new Contrast paints. It was a really quick job, with some drybrushed highlights afterwards. I don't really enjoy doing the basing, so here I tried out a cheap cheat for that as well: Stirland battlemire with some blobs of Astrogranite as rocks, all drybrushed Karak Stone then a lighter drybrush of Screaming Skull with a bit of grass on top. All in all, doing these was a lot of fun and I think they look ok for "rank and file" troops, especially considering the time these actually took.

    Note to self: Must not start *another* army . . .

    Those turned out great. I am actually painting some Rohirrim right now but I have some of those Orcs next in the queue.

    Really nice stuff here. The more muted and natural colour palette really works well with the LotR aesthetic.
    It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... and then it's just fun!

    Very niceliy done terrain pieces. I like the clean painting style and the way you use grey for wood, as most people would use more brown colors.
