Greetings!

Me and my fiancee recently decided to start with LOTR SBG. We are particularily fond of dwarves and we intend to be playing the War of the Rings era Erebor siege.

We started out by painting these easterlings, that will be the dwarves' opponents. My fiancee's miniature is her first painted ever. Mine is my first painted in 15 years.

I am quite happy about the results. I need to get some diffusion filters though for the lamps, as the real reflections are interfering with the painted reflections.

Comments are most welcome.

They look really good! I've painted many Easterlings over the last few years, so if you need any help just let me know!
Also, a quick photography tip, if you cover your mini with a white sheet of paper, the paper will work like a light diffuser. It's not perfect, but it works great in a pinch.
Good luck!

These are really impressive. Very striking; I imagine they look incredible on the tabletop!
