I still want to wrap them up though, so here's Thursday's offering.
I didn't actually buy this mini with any intention if painting it. This guy was part of a three-mini blister that I bought intending to steal the bows for a conversion. I only ended up needing one of the bows though, so this guy got to keep his hand.
This is actually the first Lord if the Rings mini I ever painted. It was kinda fun. The difference in scale is interesting though. When you're used to "heroic 28mm," like you see in most Warhammer & Reaper minis, The LotR minis seem particularly small.
The dark green was a new one for me. I started with an old Foundation paint, Orkhide Shade, then mixed in white for subsequent layers. In the end it looked oddly blue, so I drenched it in green wash, which brought it around to a nice evergreen shade.
I don't this this mini will make me convert to playing LotR, or the Hobbit, but it might have coaxed me into picking up a few loose minis here & there. I do rather like Kili, Oin, & Thorin Oakenshield's minis.
