Hello All,

After years of wanting to get around to painting some LoTR guys I have finally gotten around to it! Thought I would toss up a few pictures.

Lots more on my blog if you like, not sure I got the pictures showing right.

I have found that the img tags don't seem to work as well with Google photos as they did with photo bucket. But I am not sure what to do about that?

Anyway thanks for the comment! Going to try out a game this evening.

Thanks;
Mike

The trick is to right click on your image - then select "Copy Link Location"

Then when posting here, use the "Img" button which creates the image tags.

Between the img and /img ones paste the link.

When you preview and post the image it should work!

Finished off a unit of Uruk Hai, setting up for a game so not a great picture.

Also thanks for the tip on getting pictures working!

Good job!

Are you using the thinner Renedra bases rather than the GW ones?

Ya Renedra all the way I find the thinner ones look better, and I put a self adhesive magnet under them and it is easier with the flat ones. I really like the cobble bases also, but they don't have the right size for mounted which is a problem.


Thanks;
Mike

Got a bit ore painting done, another Isengard warband this time with a Captain and the rest of the command. Didn't see any rules for the drummer on a quick look so not sure about that, I think the 4 guy command sets were more made for War of the Ring? Not really sure. But looks really cool anyway.

Nice work.

There is a preview option i think when you are posting so you should be able to see the post before making it.

These are fantastic.

May I ask, why do you put a magnet under the base?

That's how I store and carry them around, I have a plastic box with metal in it, so with the magnet I just put the in and they stay put. I find it better them foam as it can save space and long thin things like pikes don't break as easy. Works great for me.

Thanks for the comments!
