...I want to know how that joke would end now. Maybe make suggestions in the comments? I now have the camera back, which means I can now show you everything I've been working on recently, starting with the Dwarf I finished last week. I painted him to look like he's from Erebor as it's shown in the films, hence the green marble base and the dark coloured clothing to match the appearance of the Grim Hammers. I've also added the dwarf standard bearer to the gallery here, so do take a look.
On the plus side, since I last posted I've actually finished a model, a Lord of the Rings dwarf standard bearer. On the downside, the camera isn't working at the moment, so I'll take pictures of him and add him to the gallery as soon as it is. I've also decided to go ahead and get the Imperial Knight that I've been wanting to paint since it was released.
Recently I've been working on the Palace Guard, with the result that I've now finished painting the red areas. I wanted to use red rather than the green shown in the Desolation of Smaug to give the model an autumn feel, and to help tie him in with Thranduil through the shared colour. The model's starting to near completion now, as there are only a few areas of colour left, such as the browns and the silvery cloak (which will also help link him to Thranduil).
As with last week, progress continues on the top secret project, so there's nothing I can show you from that I'm afraid, however I can show you a Lothern Sea Guard that I helped paint over the weekend. Jasmine and I went to King's Lynn on Saturday and since we had a little spare time we decided to pop into the Games Workshop there so that Jas could have a go at painting a free model.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
