Wow, I haven't updated this blog in awhile...probably because it's now SUMMER! I honestly don't paint all that much in summer. Nice weather and all that jazz usually keeps me busy. HOWEVER! I do sometimes pound out a mini or two. So from this point going forward (until the weather starts to turn again) I will be pretty much just painting whatever I please with no main project,
Now, that being said...
I decided I would just show you what I've been working on before SUMMER BREAK! WOO! I decided to get my Lord of the Rings on. Now with this particular project I am pretty much sticking to the hobby articles as presented in "The Fellowship of the Ring" source book, this bad boy:
So with that in mind I did a test Uruk-Hai following the painting guide provided in the book. So here's what my moderately okay painting managed to do:
I think it came out okay myself...if you manage to ignore the large mold line on it which I really should have filed down...oops. Anyway, the instructions to get this colour scheme are pretty good so I'm going to stick with it to complete all the Uruk-Hai I need to run the Scenarios. So far I need to buy/paint 12 Uruk-Hai Scouts with Shields, 6 with Bows an Uruk-Hai Captain and Lurtz. Now I have Lurtz and the bowmen as well as about half the Scouts I need. Just have to find a decent lot of 6 Metal Scouts and a Captain and I'm set!
Now that I mention that however I should add that I'm trying to put my purchasing to a minimum over the summer. I do plan on finishing up what I bought already but in the mean time I will probably jump between projects when I update now.
That being said....
Fire Elemental! One of my Bones minis I finally got around to painting. Mostly because it's pretty easy to paint really although I will add that, despite me having an Averland Empire army I REALLY hate painting yellow. I have to do a few touch ups on the tips (they should be blacker) but I am happy with how it came out and I hope to menace my gaming group with him.
Okay I'm off to paint!
