FOTM Painting Challenge 2014: Painting Gandalf The Grey on cart

Our Fellowship Of The Miniature 2014 Paint Challenge has ended! The first in what will hopefully become a lovely tradition for years to come. All the entries will be gathered in another post in a couple of days or so. Also have to give our judges the time to judge ;). What I wanted to talk about in this post is my personal experience with participating and painting my entry: Gandalf The Grey on cart.

The Fellowship of the Miniatures Oberonn Adventure (27/11/2014)

Again we played the scenario 'Alone in the Woods'. It's a very good scenario with the legendary heroes, Azog the Defiler and Beorn:

One of our members learned some tactics during a point match:

And we did some painting:

First dwarven kinband

I nearly finished the first dwarfen kinband. I started with some warriors.

As you can see, I mixed the plastic and metal dwarves. The next two kinbands will also be mixed :).

Mr. Gandalf? A glass of red wine as requested. It's got a fruity bouquet.

I finished Dori last week. It's the fifth dwarf is finished of the the company, so a lot to go ;-)

C&C welcome...

Bard the Bowman

Today I started assembling Bard the Bowman. I like Bard as a character in the movie and this resin sculpt has a lot of details. I had no issues with the resin. If I compare it with the first resin (finecast) models, this is a lot better.

Painttable Satursunday?

Painttable Saturday!!! On a Sunday.

As some of you may know we are having a little painting challenge due November 27th. If you didn't, well shame on you!, and now you do! My entry is Gandalf the Grey on Cart. Ever since I saw that particular scene in The Fellowship Of The Ring I wanted to own and paint that miniature. I had it lying around for years, but never seem to have gotten around to painting it. That's why I jumped on the bandwagon and entered with this model.

Mordor (III) and a grimhammer captain

I made some progress on the great beast, painted the howdah but still need to do the base.

And I painted the wild warg chieftain. Very beautiful model and a real joy to paint.

Next up where some Black Numenorians. Again I like the models, the resemblance with the mouth of Sauron is great.

And at last some progress on the dwarf forces. A grimhammer captain. Again a very lovely miniature. I'm a big fan of the grimhammers, probably on of the best sculpts on the Hobbit range.

That's it for now, but more dwarfs will follow!

Crisis 2014

I have not been really active on the blogosphere lately and neither have I been working on my huge backlog either. But I have been busy working on a hobby project.

Every year the Tin Soldiers Of Antwerp organize a miniature fair called Crisis. More info can be found here. Also every year my local club, the Golden Goblins, have a special project for Crisis. So that is where most of my available hobby time has been going to. So for those of you who did not had the chance to check out our project at Crisis, I present you "Shipwreck Cove"
