Nazgul-Round 2

I finally got around to photographing these guys. I was hoping to get this post up before the last set arrived, which, since I live in 'Murica, isnt an issue. It takes for ever to get shipments from the UK.

Here are the latest three Nazgul:
Most these Nazgul are all like family photos from the 80s. They are always looking slightly to the right.

Something interesting is going on over there

Gundabad Ogre 3 - Shadow and Flame Conversion

I really enjoy the ogres that Forge World made. As usual I wanted something a little different in addition to the poses that were offered. I remembered the scene from the movie with the rather iconic two handed crushing blow and I wanted to go for that look, and to thin him up a bit so he looked even more different. I got in touch with Dave over at Shadow and Flame and he got to work for me. Here is a shot from along the way, an the finished product.

After my much too long sabbatical I got to painting it. To set him further apart from the other two I switched up the skin tone a bit, added more cuts and scars, and lightened up the club. I have one more conversion I'm waiting on and then I'll have a group shot of them. Here he is:

As always, thanks for looking.

Nazgul - Round 1

I guess its been a bit since I posted anything. I took about a nine month hiatus from slinging paint, but now I'm back in to it. I've started some new things, and finished off some stuff that had been hanging around. Here is the first round of Nazgul.

Gundabad Ogre 2

Man, I thought these were big until I started painting one of the Trolls. They are massive, absolutely massive. Anyway, that's another story for another day. For now, here is the second Ogre. Super cool this one. I put some scars on him for the hell of it. Next ogre up is a conversion from Shadow and Flame.

Iron Hills Dwarf with Spear Command

Its been a quiet month for posting, but not for painting. I started entering the One Ring painting challenges again, and the models are due in today. I figured I should get them posted up here as well. I dig them. Forge World is really kicking ass with these new models.

The Unexpected Journey - January 2017- Malbeth The Seer

I finally got Malbeth's base finished. This TUJ challenge has been awesome. I never would have thought to paint this model anytime soon and it was great to work on. Alot that can be done with it. If you have it, should break it out and paint it. Totally worth it!
