After painting so much black and grey, I needed to do something else. I had gone to a game store/pub with my brother and while it was mostly board games, card games and x-wing, they did have some miniatures. Looking at them I thought while the rest of the figure was larger than LOTR, the heads might work. So I bought Whizkids Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts human female fighters dual set https://wizkids.com/deep-cuts-unpainted/ and promptly cut off a head. :D

The casting I got (should have looked closer at the store), the features on the face weren't as pronounced as the one on the webpage but works well enough as long you don't take pictures. :)

Used a warrior of rohan body I had, added the female head, a pouch from Victoria Miniatures and tired of black and grey or brown and green of Rohan - went with blues and whites. Also wanted the white to go with the flower found on the tombs of the kings - Simbelmynë, also named Evermind, which I crudely put on the shield.

Looks cool, the head seems to scale pretty well. I haven't heard of these Wizkids Pathfinder minis, but as I've been on the lookout for some elf heads without helmets I'm kind of intrigued by these options. The elf ears on the Pathfinder minis look a little big, but they could be trimmed down.

Very nice! I like the simbelmyne on the shield, very fitting.
And I can easily imagine her taking up arms to defend her cottage or village from plundering orcs or wild men from Isengard.

Cleaning off my camera and my work desk so I can get back to work on my lake town buildings.

Just some pics I took while I was working on the statue/rock.

These pictures for some reason reminded me of Haleth's defense in the first age haha, before she was saved by Caranthir's people.

Back in May 2016, I bought a batch of LOTR figures off of Ebay. Included in the batch were eight Warg Riders including the mounted Gothmog. I cleaned them up, put on the base coat which I had used on my other Warg Riders and promptly threw them into the ever growing to be painted mountain (dungeon?)

Trying to get rid of some of the odds and ends before I tackle my next army, I pulled them out and finished them off.
