Painting 15 moranon orcs and 6 warg riders testing out incorporating contrast paint to my painting process.

But real meat starts probably next week(weekend by latest) as I got totally nutty idea of doing tale of 4 gamers by myself so to speak Isengard, Lothlorien, Minas Tirith and Serpent horde in 4 months aiming for ~1000 pts each(more isn't denied).

Lists drawn up(including what additions I still need) and what to paint for each each month...

This is going to be nuts. Over 200 models in 4 months for 4 totally different looking factions. Good thing 40k side is quiet now for me.

Ahahahaha, oh man, it does read that way. I've put it in quotes for now, but now I'm thinking I might start painting some halflings to hide in all my phoots...


You could always track down the Hobbit-carrying Uruks from the Breaking of the Fellowship... you might need to sell a spare limb/organ or two to afford them though, I have a feeling they're silly expensive. Great army though.

They're great models from an age when GW did thematic box sets for LOTR - my all time favourites.

You can find them on eBay every now and again. If you don't mind stripping models you'll be in luck. There are also full, complete 'Ambush at Amon Hen' boxes that go up every so often. Honestly, for long OOP metal models in a combined box set with some awesome models (dying Boromir!) the price it goes for really isn't bad. I picked a box up years ago and still have the two Hobbit-carrying Uruks to paint up at some point...

Yeah it was sweet time. Lotr as it was then would likely not be done now with gw's plastic insistance. All those variants would be too expensive on plastic.

How much terrain is typically used for LotR these days? I have a pair of WHFB graveyard sets and a 6x4 grass/broken houses gaming mat to work it. Is that enough for starting out?

I'm kinda curious about this as well. I don't have any past experience to compare it with so it would be nice to know what amount makes for a good game

Been on a painting spree. 13 uruk's, saruman, 13 minas tirith and 17 lothlorien elves plus working bits and pieces on Mumak. Damn that model takes some painting! Dreading already the base...

Like the grey that space wolf grey contrast got. 2 coats of that. Took hefty amount of bottle contents.

Now just the howdah etc...Urgh. Also 30 more uruk's and Brima on the painting table atm.

Finally found the guys I started about 8 or 9 years ago. Now I figure any guys I need to convert I can do so from the guys who aren’t yet based.

Any suggestions about what I need to make? I bought the new Theoden model to assemble too.

Last night I finished Elladan, Elrohir and Halbarad, and with that my Grey Company is 100% completed for good. Only 1 Ranger model to paint in Arathorn for some earlier time period theme lists, but the Pelennor era army is done alongside my Dead of Dunharrow.

Armoured Azog on White Warg conversion using the finecast GW mounted Azog and the armoured Azog from the 'Azog vs Thorin' mini-diorama piece from ForgeWorld.

Treebeard done! Had loads of fun painting him even though I was a bit stressed at the start cause it is my first painted mini since a while and I did not want to ruin it.

Hey everyone. Going to join this thread as I've recently got back into LOTR miniatures. I scored an original 2001 fellowship of the ring on ebay today, aswell as sauron and isildur/elendil, and I also got the forge world azog vs thorin for Christmas, which I am working on currently and planning on entering thorin into golden demon in May.

Here's some shots of his face, aswell as a base I've made for him.

Thanks! Well the moss on the actual branch cut off is genuine lichen on the branch. The foliage on the base is from a basing set from Oliver spaeth. You can buy his basing sets on etsy, but I believe they're just a mix of basing materials you buy from model shops.

The more I look at it though the more I wonder if thorin would look right on it...

So I decided against using the forest base for Thorin as I don't think it suited him. I will use the forest base for one of my vintage fellowship models instead. I decided to make my own ice base for him and Azog, because although the one provided by forge world in the kit is nice, I didn't feel that it represented the river ice in the scene.

I think my resin was past its best, and the pour didn't cure particularly well, but with a little sanding, varnish, and snow effect to cover any areas beyond easy repair, I managed to get it looking something like.

You have two armies. Taken them down to the store and try demoing a few games and see what response you get.
