I still forget to update my thread properly...
As a side effect of a big army commission, I had the chance to paint a few Haradrim for my collection. Still, a lot to do for both, the commission and my army, but at least progress is made and the future looks brighter.
:) :wink:

Love the paint scheme, very Arabic and fitting for the Haradrim.

thanks a bunch guys!
here are two links with a brief reference to the colours and techniques used for the Abrakhan Guards' skin and the Haradrim warriors' colours in general.

P.S. if they don't work for you, let me know and I'll rewrite them here for you.

P.S.S. In fact, we'd appreciate it, if you liked our FB page, you'll find quite a few LotR related updates. I hope this doesn't violate any rules, if it does, please (Admins), let me know and I'll delete it. Here's the link:

So, here is a bunch of dwarfs that I finished for Adam in the US a couple of months ago. I enjoyed painting them, but I feel that the green used undermines the final result. But, since Adam preferred them this way, all is good.
One thing to notice, are Dain's hair, which I tried to copy movie-Dain's colors and his axe, which is described as a red axe in the book.

Your hard color scheme is amazing. I love it.

The dwarves are well done, it is a fairly dark green which I think is less friendly with the gold and the red, but nonetheless it is still a fair scheme and looks good.

Nice work on the dwarves, I think you could have probably pushed the highlight on the green a bit more with them but still an excellent job.

You're probably right CG, maybe I should have done so.

Thanks bud! I still strongly feel that these colours do not compliment each other and that the final result feels as an underachievement. Dunno...

Hi everybody!
Here are a few custom made Rohan-realted casualties/objective markers that I completed over the last few months.

Nice work though I think some blood effects (like Tamiya Clear Red or Blood For the Blood God) would really make them pop.

Great bases, the spider is amazing.
Maybe I'll copy them... great work.

Thanks guys.
I used some MR HOBBY clear red on the poor Rohirrim, but not a lot. I didn't want to make it all look "Friday the 13th". It's the poor lighting, methinks.

Anyway, I was toyin' with an old model a couple of afternoons ago. Still WiP.
Be gentle.

No need to be gentle, she's shaping up nicely (the face is excellent).

I love the bases, I ve done the same recasts for a diorama, they fit excellent as objective markers as it seems! Eowyn is going on well, the woman face to be really "woman-ish" is something difficult to be achieved but I am sure that you are going to make beautiful enough, even for Aragorn's taste haha!
