Challenge Submission #4 - The Lord of the Rings Good, Bad and Ugly.

 Last winter my painting focus was on whittling down my large collection of unpainted Dwarves, Goblins, Orcs, Rangers, and Uruk-hai from the Games Workshop Lord of the Rings range of miniatures, with a few character figures thrown in for good measure. That still left more than a few unpainted, and I thought some would lend themselves nicely to a few of the Quadrant XII Challenges. These are all 28mm metal miniatures released as blisters, or part of boxed sets. Alas, many of them are now out of production.

All were primed black with a rattle can, and then painted with Vallejo acrylics. Depending on the colour, or the effect I wanted to achieve, I used either washes or drybrushing.

Boromir and Lurtz

Aragorn at the Battle of Helm's Deep

Saruman and Grima Wormtongue

Legolas Greenleaf of the Woodland Realms


Thanks for reading.

Great job Frederick. I just love that sculpt of Boromir in particular. Well done.
