Warriors of Dale

I'm sorry for the inconsistency of my posting recently. I've been having some personal trouble that makes it hard for me to update regularly. However today I've managed to drag myself to Games Workshop and have bought some Warriors of Dale which I'm planing to use as proxies for Warriors of Arnor. I'll keep you updated as much as I can.

Showcase - The Great Goblin

I've been on a painting frenzy recently and I've just finished the Great Goblin from the Escape from Goblin Town box set. I've saturated the photo a little to bring out the detail at the cost of showing the true colours of the miniature: it's actually less yellow with a few crimson sores dotted around his grotesque body.

Showcase - Gandalf the Grey (Goblin Town)

So I finally finished Gandalf. I'm mostly happy with him apart from the sword where I decided to try out some NMM and think I failed miserably  Still, that was my first attempt and I'm sure I'll redo it when I have a little more experience.

The Hobbit - Gandalf : Work In Progress

I've been making very slow progress with the Hobbit box set, shown by my lack of activity on here and Youtube recently, due to A-level exams. However, I have now finished my January exams and have started work, once again, on Gandalf. His base is finished and I've begun to highlight his overcoat and base coat his tunic. I will try and get him finished within the week along with another batch of goblins.

The Hobbit - Goblin Town Bases

For the key characters in the Hobbit - Escape from Goblin Town box set I thought I'd spend a little longer on the bases to really blend them in to the excellent Goblin Town scenery produced by Games Workshop. So I got hold of some balsa wood and set to work making miniature planks of wood. This is how I got on:

If you're interested to see how I made this base then leave a comment and if enough people do so then I will make a instructional video/slideshow (up to you) on how to make one! Thanks for reading.
