More Mordor

Sunlight's still shitty outside so not much point doing a full army shot. Finished these 5 up today to add to the growing hordes. Always wanted to paint these figures and they were good fun. Another 5 infantry, one extra Nazgul and a few trolls to be done but I may leave the larger figures for some other time.

Not much painting time left before I go back to work unfortunately so my progress will definitely slow a little. I'll be knocking over the Covenant Wraith tanks I showed a WIP of last time next.

Bits and Bobs

Been fairly busy painting lately, I've finished the majority of a Mordor army for Lord of the Rings SBG and here is just a taste of what I finished today, hoping to get some photos of the others tomorrow if it isn't too cloudy

Witch King of Angmar

These have been in the works for a while, managed to get them airbrushed last week and now the time consuming part is doing all the detailing. Tons of metallic grey panelling highlights, drivers to be painted and then the blue glow on the weapons and thruster areas for the tanks. After that a gloss varnish coat and a pin wash with some black oil paint before finishing them off with some matt varnish. Hoping to get stuck into these properly once I finish off a unit of Mordor Uruk Hai this week (ideally)

Stay tuned for some photos of my Mordor gear this week with any luck

Halo Ground Command

Halo has been a love affair of mine since the games came out when I was in school so once I saw the new game out by Spartan Games I knew I was sold. These guys are 2 units of Covenant grunts led by an Elite Minor which form some core units for their side. I've only shown off two but I have six nearly finished plus stacks of others so expect more updates in the next few weeks

I'm back

Apoglogies for the long drought on the blogging front. I've had trouble connecting my phone to my computer and that really put me off going through the uploading process for quite a while. However I'm back now and armed with Google Drive (although it did make half the photos I had disappear) so expect my posts to be a bit more frequent than once every 7 months now

Something a little different this time, a unit of 12 Black Guard of Barad-dur from the Lord of the Rings series. Mounted up on resin bases and painted with some fairly dark colours apart from the reds. I tried to get the cloaks a different colour to the shield blacks, they have a green mixed through and blended up with the dark greys.

Let me know if you like them I can always get more photos of the others, next time I should have some of my other offerings in the form of some Halo Ground Command units to show off.
