Great OSL effect, especially for the first attempt. I'll have to return to this thread when I get around to painting this version of the Witch-king. In my opinion, the model perfectly captures the moment from the books, when Grond breaks the gate of Minas Tirith, and

"In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face."

I would have loved to see this scene play out in the movies instead of the encounter with Gandalf higher up in the city.

In deed, it's pretty iconic a model and it perfectly fits the scene, as you describe it from the book, as well.

Hello again!

I finally made it! Back at page 9 of this thread and during the summer of 2015 (time flies) I bought and painted Beorn. But I wanted to push my skills a bit at the bases that these 2 models would fit on and make them a bit scenic.
Got back and forth a couple of times, put the human Beorn on a 32 mm base, (he was "suffocating" on the normal 25 mm one) and finally got on to complete and paint the bases. Mind the not so good quality pics following. Here they are:

Hope you like them!

Beorn as a Bear's base is excellent. Nice use of a fallen hunter orc. Twisted wire tree?

Thx guys.
Actually, the tree is a redundant, green stuffed, plastic Ent head. :wink:
