Oh wow. Great job. Thanks for letting me know you fixed it. I would have missed it.


Very well done there job Captian Bloody fists.


Sadly I am not contributing here. Trying to fight my depresion and instead of just painting sloppliy I am taking my time. You guys are motivating me and excited to try again. Please keep posting. Really loving what I am seeing.

Agies Grimm:The "Learn to play, bro" mentality is mostly just a way for someone to try to shame you by implying that their metaphorical nerd-wiener is bigger than yours. Which, ironically, I think nerds do even more vehemently than jocks.

Everything is made up and the points don't matter. 40K or Who's Line is it Anyway?

Appreciated the heads up! Glad to be helping in a small way. You're doing the right thing taking your time with it and doing it right - you'll be infinitely happier with the results in the end! Looking forward to seeing the results!

That's me done and dusted with my Angmar forces now. 1000pts-ish - Twilight Witch King, Shade, 2x Warrow Wights, Burdhur, 3 Cave Trolls, an Orc Captain, 46 Orcs and an Orc Banner. Has been a fun project, and I'll come revisit it after Christmas I think to add in a Fell-Beast and Gulavar, plus the Dwimmerlaik and Tainted, I reckon.

Those are some awesome minis, midnightdeathblade! The High Elf looks absolutely perfect, although I particularly love the archer.

I've made a bunch of progress on my Rivendell army, mostly characters (Elladan and Elrohir armoured, foot and mounted, Cirdan, Erestor, Glorfindel robed foot and mounted, as well as adding a bunch of numbers to the army.

For a bit of a change though, I also recently finished some Dark Powers of Dol Guldur for a bit of fun.

Stunning collection mate!! Nice painting as well! Some unique models which I do not even recognise from GW site.
See Ur an elven friend. I am more a dwarf enthusiast but Legolas, Elrond and few others in the movies are on my favorites list also.

Some seriously awesome Middle Earth models in this thread!

I painted these a little while back this year; they are my best painted LotR models to date. 5 old metal Easterling Kataphrakts:

I mostly paint and play Warhammer 40k, but it was nice to paint some LotR models for a change. I just wish more people in my area played it. Neither of the two FLGS in my hometown ordered any of the new stuff because there was just no interest from the community.

My armies (re-counted and updated on 6/7/18, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1100 | Space Wolves: ~2000
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6300 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8400 | Death Guard: ~2700 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2400

Brilliant army Doug! That Thranduil is such an amazing mini. Come close to pulling the trigger a few times and i don't even have any Mirkwood elves.

Experiencing that lovely feeling when there's only three models left of a long term project to complete. Soon the three tier Mordor army will be finished.

Working on a list for Adepticon. I’m brand new to MESBG and have not played a game yet.

Here are 27 Hobbit Militia that I have completed over the last couple weeks. I also have the Three Hunters painted.

Bad pic, but I’m pretty happy with them for the time I put in them. No two Hobbits are exactly alike, something is different on each of them.

Nice to see such a variety of projects being worked on following the revival. That Mirkwood army is awesome.

About to dive back into some LotR myself, as was perhaps inevitable following the traditional Christmas trilogy viewing... Picked up a set of the original (mostly, a couple are later versions) Fellowship metals on ebay as well as the ft/mtd Gandalf The Grey, so I'll be doing those up to what will hopefully be a better standard than my original BGiME copies! Looking forward to finally painting the mounted Gandalf as well, such a great model that child-me could never afford with pocket money!

Pics incoming as soon as I have some finished...

As promised...

The first mini in my 'let's do this LotR thing again' project. Really more of a test, as I'll probably use the other Gandalf sculpt as part of the Fellowship, but still pretty pleased with it. And amazed once again at the likenesses on minis getting on for two decades old!



Any thoughts welcome!

Pretty much. I'll be swapping out the Helm's Deep Aragorn for a Fellowship one shortly.

In other news, the new Theoden paints up a treat. Really enjoyed this one.

Brother got me a copy of ROTK rule book(2003) last year and its still in brand-new condition. We have more than enough games to be playing, and miniatures to paint, but if GW re-releases the Shelob set as plastic we might give the "In the Clutches of Shelob" mission a go. I'll keep this thread in mind and post up pictures if that happens.
