Mordor Orc Captain 2

The other Mordor orc captain in the scavenged Gondor armor.  The shield was interesting. The GW picture of it is rather inconclusive as to if it is wood or metal. I used DMS's as a guide and decided to go with wood. However, there was no woodgrain texture that stood out well on the model, so all those lines are done freehand. Took forever!

Mordor Orc Captain

My latest addition to the collection. I stumbled on to an excellent lava tutorial on Chest of Colors. I really liked the results and I wanted to have a crack at it. So I painted up this orc captain and mounted him onto a base of cooling lava. More pictures on the Mordor page.

Rohan Banner Bearer

I worked on this guy through out the week. Finally got around to posting some pictures of him. A lot of fun to paint. I think I will put him up on CMON.

More pictures on the Rohan page. Comments always welcome!

Ringwraith with lava base

Below is another conversion from Majestic Bear Miniatures. You may have seen a very similar wraith on the "Articles" page of his website. This wraith was painted up by one Mr. Dead Marsh Spectre. I thought the pose and the base were awesome, and I had been wanting to try my hand at creating lava and also working on painting light reflections on some of my miniatures. This was my first attempt. I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out, but I also see some room for improvement. At any rate, many thanks to Dave for the excellent conversion, and to Kev for originally coming up with such an inspiring base.

As always more views can be found on the MBM page, and also on the Cirith Ungol page.
