Please post them. There are no tournaments or GW stores near me so I love house rules.


Thanks in advance, Xin

I will, I will, at some point. First, I want to have them finished. ;) But it's nice to hear someone's interested in them.

I have to disagree on the round sheilds.The kite look much better.

I really like kite shields and they do look good with the helmets, but considering the dynamic pose and the nautical use, I'd definitely go with round shields. kite would be a mess to use on a sail ship.

Hey TLA! I'm back with a small update again.

First of all, thanks guys for the input. ;)

First of all, I continued working on my Orc Taskmaster and Drummer. I started work on them a few years ago (when they first came out in metal). I got them about half finished and stopped working on them since. But, last weekend I re-based them and I hope to finish them this weekend!

Image

Furthermore, for the One Ring Painting Competition, I started painting the Great Goblin sculpt I made about a year ago. Here are some work in progress shots. I hope to finished him this weekend.

Image

Image

And, though maybe not very fitting for my painting blog, I started works on some grain fields. Mostly intended for scenarios of the Scouring of the Shire, they can obviously be used for any battles in civilised realms.

Fantastic goblin king. Didn't you sculpt that a few years back?

Thanks! :) His 'throne' is a flat rock, as described in the book. I added a fur coat (because I thought it made sense and because it doesn't contradict the book).

Thanks mate! Yes, I sculpted it a year ago actually. You can see some WIP shots here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5343&start=60
The end was rushed, because I wanted to finish him for the One Ring competition. So, I'm not really glad with the left sleeve, the hands and the head. The legs were also too thin in the end (I didn't really get the larger picture for the model, I got ideas as I went along). So, in general, I'm not overly glad with him. I guess he's okay, but not as exactly how I envisioned him. Still, it was a very worthwhile experience and I guess I'll just have to make another sculpt someday. :)

Add a couple dark Age Anglo Saxon style houses, fences/walls, animal pens, and dirt tracks to those fields and you'd have an awesome looking Dunedain or Rohirrim village.

Goblin King looks awesome, very rat like which is appropriate. The painting is good too which is what matters (though that OR comp could almost become a sculpting contest).

Good stuff all around.

Hey guys! Back once again, with an update of some of the progress I made over summer break.

More (and bigger) pictures can again be found on my Blog on Der Skirmisher website:
http://hdrskirmisher.wordpress.com/cate ... steltisch/

First of all, I finished painting my Goblin conversions.

Image

Image

Furthermore, I continued working on the kneeling WoMT conversion.

Image

Image

I also started a new little project: true-to-the-books Haradrim! Overlapping plates and helmets are mentioned in the books. While we don't know what kind of overlapping plates, I went for scale mail.

Image

Furthemore, a bit bigger project: a mountain-hill side with a forest on top. The tree trunks will be sculpted with Miliput and will fit trees in. I won't glue the trees, so that they can be removed if a model want to move through the trees.

Image

More pictures of the projects can be found here:
http://hdrskirmisher.wordpress.com/2014 ... -projects/

And lastly, my article was featured in the fifth issue of Der Skirmisher! It's on making Campaign Maps and can be found here:
https://hdrskirmisher.files.wordpress.c ... ust-14.pdf

Image

An English version will soon be posted on Der Skirmisher website and I can submit it to the One Ring as well. :)
A showcase of the Campaign maps of Harad and Gondor can be found here:
http://hdrskirmisher.wordpress.com/2014 ... aign-maps/

That's it again for now!
