Work in Progress and Denethor

Next up is my Denethor model. As with most of the figures based on the films I think the likeness to the actor is very good. He is used in one of the last Journey book scenarios and will be good fun to use in point matches with his Broken Mind special rule.

I thought I would also put up a couple of work in progress pictures. The first is of the figures that are in various stages of assembly, conversion or priming the secondis of the figures that are waiting on being based.




I have been a bit crap at updating the blog but it’s mainly because I was not happy with the pictures I was taking. I have mucked around with some more lights and the camera settings and I think I am finally getting somewhere so I have had a bit of a photo session today. Hopefully I can now get a few more updates on here. I still need to work on the lighting a bit but I am getting there. First up are 9 plastic rangers. These are going to be used as Dunedain in the initial journey book scenarios and will then double up as Gondor rangers for the later games. I have just ordered 3 Dunedain from GW as well so they will jump up the paint queue when they arrive. pics 208

On the rangers front I have another 15 of the plastic figures and four metal Faramirs rangers to complete. Some of the plastics are going to get a bit of conversion work done, mainly adding spears. I also have Faramir, Damrod and Mandril to complete. My painting have been jumping around a bit because I have been trying to get a couple of armies painted up for standard points games. I am concentrating on Gondor and Mordor at the moment and I have made some decent progress. All these will be used for the later scenarios as well.
