Look good so far. What site are you using to host the images? Only ask because logging in to see your images is not something a casual viewer will do or non members that may be looking at the posts.

Really like how you had paint them.
Can you tell me which colors had you used for the upper and lower armours?
I think that lower is gold with chesnut or sepia wash, but the upper and helmet I don' see clear.

I was planning to convert and paint 8 Haldir's Elves Spearmen next, however I don't yet have the spears to use.

Am going to paint Boromir Captain of the White Tower and 12 Warriors of Minas Tirith in the meantime. Have assembled, undercoated, and painted the flesh so far.

Boromir looks great, and his Minas Tirith warriors look very cleanly painted, nice. You're getting through this batch painting at a remarkable rate!

Used quite a simple scheme:

Base coat - Chaos Black Spray

Flesh:
Base - Mournfang Brown
Layer - Cadian Fleshtone (x2 thin layers)
Highlight - Kislev Flesh
Wash - Reikland Fleshtone (x2 light washes)

N.b. Here I tidied the helmets back up with Abaddon Black

Armour (Incl. Swords/Spear Tips, Bow Ends and shield edges):
Base - Leadbelcher
Highlight - Ironbreaker
Highlight - Runefang Steel
Wash - Nuln Oil

Underclothing:
Base - 50:50 Abaddon Black and Eshin Grey
Highlight - Eshin Grey
Wash - Nuln Oil

Leather Straps, Spear shafts, Bows, Scabbards and shoes.
Base - Rhinox Hide
Highlight - Tuskgor Fur
Wash - Nuln Oil

Shield:
Base - 50:50 Abaddon Black and Eshin Grey
Highlight - Eshin Grey
White Tree Detail - Ironbreaker
Wash - Nuln Oil

Sword Hilts:
Base - Leadbelcher
Layer - Ghenna's Gold
Highlight - 60:40 Ghenna's Gold and Runefang Steel
Wash - Agrax Earthshade

Fletching:
Base - Snakebite Leather
Highlight - Ushabi Bone
Highlight - Ceramic White
Wash - Reikland Fleshtone

N.b. I did all the Nuln oil washes at once prior to doing the sword hilts and fletchings to save time.

Bases:
Base - Rhinox Hide
Dry brush layer - Steel Legion Drab
Dry brush layer - Kommando Khaki
Flock- Static Grass

N.b. I tidy up the non gravelled sides with Rhinox Hide

Thanks alot!

For the flesh, would ratskin flesh for the base and bestigor flesh for the highlight suffice aswell?

Where did you get your gravel and pva?

What color did you use for the shield of Boromir? :)

Have been using a GW modelling sand tub - pic below.

Boromir's Shield:
Metal - As rest of armour
Base - Rhinox Hide
Layer - 50:50 Rhinox Hide and Tuskgor Fur
Highlight - Tuskgor Fur
Wash - Nuln Oil

Ratskin and Bestigor Flesh are akin to the old Dwarf and Elf flesh so they should work well - Don't think they are too dissimilar from the colours I used tbh.
