I have made a decent amount of progress and I now have most of what I need for the first journey book painted up. I am still looking for 4 barrow weights and then I have everything I need for this book.
I still have the following to paint for this journey book
2 mounted wraiths
1 foot wraith
6 wild wargs
The Warg chief
1 goblin captain
Some wood elves
The barrow weights when I source them
I have made a start on some of the scenery I did not already have in my collection as well. The thing that is going to take a fair amount of time to build is Weathertop and that’s needed fairly early on in the book.
I have also decided to try and reduce my backlog a bit by painting up some of the figures that are quick to finish. I will need them at some point so it’s good to see a good chunk of progress getting made. Currently on the painting table I have all the Goblins from the Hobbit Goblin town set which are finished baring a few details and basing. Next I plan to rattle off some Gondor troops, then the rest of the wargs and after that who knows, maybe some orcs.
I also have a load of finished bits that I need to base up as well as some conversions and priming to do of more recently acquired figures. I am planning on having a big photo session as some point so I can post up pictures on here.
