I agree, I think I prefer a more "wintery" base than a lava one.

I am not necessarily basing this themed army off of any battle that occurred in the Silmarillion. I guess I just want it to be as if the houses of the noldor assembled their forces on the Anfauglith.

The addition of ice/rock/snow on my bases should contrast nicely with the bright NMM armor I will be painting all of the elves, so it should come out nicely.

Those snowy bases are indeed very beautiful. And in Anfauglith certainly it snowed at times.

I need to find some cloaks that I can put on the back of these guys, that way it will make them feel a little bit more elven. If anyone has any ideas, please share.


If you have not already tried it I use the foil from Kenco Millicano coffee containers to make cloaks. I flatten the dimples out of the foil by rubbing it with a spoon on the kitchen worktop when SWMBO is out. Then I press the foil over a cloak of the type I want. This"former" can be on a figure or a plastic one from the spares box. The cloak is then cut out glued in place and when dry can be "sculpted" further. The figure top right with the grey plastic cloak is the one I used as the former.

Intriguing technique but looks to work very well, are they not too malleable when painted (causing shipping)?

These Blackroot Vale archers were made about a year ago and have lasted remarkably well. The foil used is quite stiff and holds its shape really well. I have used it for flags and pennants, horse armour and other similar uses.

Our Tesco and Poundworld Plus has 100g containers of the coffee for £2.50 just now.

Yep! I knew about Unreleased miniatures and Ridgeback.

I think we should leave the discussion about them here though. According to the admins, we should try to limit discussion on these third party miniature makers.

Here's the announcement:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=32255

Thanks though!

And did you know these ones?

http://norbaminiatures.com/es/31-la-batalla-del-anillo

OK they are Teleri, so may be not exactly fit with your purposes - but may be you might consider them for the role of Nargothrond elves.

P.s. No copyright problems here, I suppose, as they declare the product for the "Battalla del Anillo", differently from the previous ones.
