Hi there guys and girls!
So I’ve missed a few blog entries, and I apologise! University has a way of sapping away all free time, and the free time I do have is inevitably used trying to figure out what to build or paint, rather than writing blog posts!
Well today I have some things to show you!
I was persuaded (it didn’t take a lot) to finish my Grey Company force for Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. I didn’t put a lot of work in, the models are painted to a very basic gaming standard, but I think they look good enough for my needs!
I started out with The Three Hunters to represent a grittier Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, the newer Halbarad and Grey Company models (now sadly out of production) and finally the armoured Elladan and Elrohir models.
The army was painted using dark greens and browns, with grey on the cloaks. I even applied this scheme to the normally blue-and-gold twins (I would hope High Elves would be smart enough not to wander the forests in bright gold!!) This simplified the scheme, lowered the amount of different paints used, and gave the force more visual cohesion on the tabletop.
I leave your opinion of the quality of these models to your own judgement, they still need basing but for the most part they’re ready for the tabletop!
Without further ado, I present to you the Grey Company,
Elladan and Elrohir:
Halbarad with The Banner of Arwen Evenstar:
Rangers of the North:
The Grey Company:
That’s all from me for now. I shall be posting updates more regularly now I’m better settled into college (I hope!)
Until next time!
