GGPC 2014 Update

I thought I would give a quick update on my progress. Still a lot of work to be done, hopefully getting there!

Golden Goblin Paint Challenge 2014

My first post on this blog and it's not even LOTR or Hobbit related !! Ha!!
It is, however, miniature related. My local club, the Golden Goblins, have an annual painting challenge and as board member I feel obliged to participate.
The idea behind the painting challenge is to have everyone paint the same miniature to see what they come up with. Conversions our allowed!.
This year's model is Crazy Perez from Freebooter Miniatures. We are supposed to have our models finished by the end of the month and I only just started. Gotta love that last minute attitude ^^. Last year I was forced to do the walk of shame for not finishing on time, but I'm trying to avoid it this year.

Below you can see some WIP pictures, still a lot of work to be done. A lot, like the skin f.i, is still only in basecoat.

Please note that this is completely separate from our Fellowship paint challenge

Dunlending Warriors Command

I got this from ebay, me very happy ;-). I needed this command for the 'The Two Towers' scenarios. They are the first Dunlending miniatures in my collectoin but not the last. I still need more warriors. I'm still looking for the two-handed and bow warriors because they are OOP :-( At this moment I can order the hand weapon warriors from the GW site.
If anybody can help me finding the two-handed and bow warriors, that woud be great!

Beorn & Bear are finished. These were great miniatures to paint, especially Beorn. They're now ready to take part in the scenario 'Alone in the Woods'

The Fellowship of the Miniatures Oberonn Adventure (10/07/2014)

We played the Scenario 'Hold Ground' mainly for test playing the Hunter Orcs, freshly painted by me ;-)
One victory and loss for the Hunter Orcs. I personnally like the stats especially the 2 attacks.

Hunter Orcs

I finished painting my Hunter Orcs. I really like these miniatures, a lot of different poses, nice details,...

Now I'm painting Beorn. When Beorn (and Bear) is finished, I've painted every miniature for the scenario 'Alone in the Woods' ('The Desolation of Smaug' sourcebook).
