Thanks. Yeah, still working through my huge backlog of models.
Some more dwarf pics.

I really like the pattern on Oin's hood.

I second Lord Hyper, love the pattern on Oin's hood as well as Gloin's jacket. Also really liking Gloin's hair, it's that sort of colour I always find difficult to do realistically but you've done a really good job on it.

Glad you like them. Pretty much following Garfy's Tutorials over on Tale of Painters for these. Only slight modifications, I think his group came out fantastic so trying my best to get those results. Here is this guy.

Great Fili. I've had mixed feelings about the models pose, but in your picture it looks really dynamic.

Finally finished, I didn't think I would get through these guys, so used to painting orcs or troops so painting this many individuals in a row was tasking. Will probably knock Gandalf out of the way before Bilbo.

Just great. Balin, Fili and Kili are my favorites.
All are very well painted, but somehow I think some color designs work better in the movie than on models. Like Dwalin, Bofur and Bombur.

I cut and pinned the hand to have a pose I feel better about. I think this is pretty good model for plastic.

That is a lovely model with amazing weathering. You have a talent.
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.
