Clearing up the painting desk

Just a small update, I finished some dwarf heroes I had laying around for at least five years.
I remember working on them when I studied at the university. Without a doubt the longest time between start and finish I ever took.
I'm thinking about an army of Thrór lately, so the king himself will come in handy in the near future!

Desktop update

I made a lot of progress in the man cave. I will post pictures up as soon as it is completely finished. Meanwhile I painted  some guard of the fountain court. Two had no spears so I ended up giving them some new spears and sculpted their hands. They will join the Gondorian legion. My wife took care of some trees and finished the bases. The will be put to good use in the coming games.

Scouring of the shire part VII

I painted up the last heroes, the real heroes of the story. Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin on pony. The models itself have a lot of nostalgia for me. Originally part of the old Scouring of the Shire set and supplement they were released at the peak of this game itself. The good old times!

It is really interesting to look back to all the upps and downs this hobby had. It really lets you appriciate the condition the game is in today. New models, upcoming supplements, a new Lotr Amazon series. For sure, good times are ahead.

Scouring of the shire part V: still in lockdown

Still in lockdown, so I continued working on my shire project. I added some cool and fun stuff.
I painted Sam and Bill the pony. It were some of the last models to complete my collection and I just recently obtained them. Lovely sculpts!

And once more an exclusive model! The rare Frodo footprints. This model was never sold but given to some of the GW stores. A long sought-after model that I can add to the collection.

And last but not least, I made some traps for the Shire legendary legion.

Next up, another warband of Hobbits!

Scouring of the shire part IV

I once more continued my Shire project. After finishing Laketown I've started looking for a new project. In the mean time I continued working on my in between Hobbit force. I always wanted to have a Hobbit army but never had the courage to commit into painting it. A hundred Hobbits is a lot! So between projects, I try to finish some hobbits.

Last year I made some progress painting some of the Forgeworld heroes. Last week I finished the job.
I have to say it once again, these Frogeworld models are fantastic. A real joy to paint and full of detail.

Black Numenorians

A few months ago I had the chance to buy some cheap metal Black Numenorians. I couldn't resist. You always need more Black Numenorians! I already painted them up, they will fit nice in my Morodr or Corsair forces.


Every year when I visit Crisis (the largest wargaming convention in Flandres) I buy some more dino's. Just a fun side project. This year I painted a Gasosaurus (the small theropod), a Kentrosaurus (the spiked one), a Hatzegopteryx (flying) and an Eustreptospondylus (big theropod).
