I hope that its obvious that the mini on the left is the old one! To date I repainted three of the original 16 elves.
Next up, a fellow One-ringer was kind enough to sell me his elf conversions, 20 elves in all.
Most need a bit of sculpting before they will make it to the paint station, but one was in good enough condition to be painted after a bit of filing and sanding.
Next is to start my trials at sculpting. I am still waiting on my wedge and cone clay shapers to arrive in the mail. Between tutorials on the internets, and conversations and loads of advice from UKFreddyBear, hopefully I can pull off some decent work.
