In this topic a few months back, I talked about the fascination I had with chaining up a big scary hero. Yesterday, I got started. Here's where I'm at with Bolg so far.

Now I'm waiting for the glue to dry so I can decide what else it needs

Fatty is Bolger than most heroes, but to call him the Bolgest? I think that's a bit much

Thanks! I know I've seen someone talk about doing it to a Dragon, though I don't know what's come of that idea

I've been working on the foot model as well:

I do need to fix the angle on that rope, but I think it does a good job telling the story.

The pictures came out a bit blurrier than I had hoped, but the important bits still show :)

Bolg is done, finished him up and now he's resting comfortably. Time for the next project: DRAGON

I wanted to make his base look interesting, but I tend to dislike scenic bases without a story to them (so lumping him on a plain rock just for the sake of it). At first, I thought about having him crash down on a burning house, that didn't feel great. Then I thought about where he might live; if this is part of my Mordor collection, he lives somewhere in Mordor. Quite likely among the outer mountains somewhere, which means rocks. Well, if I don't want a plain rock, what if the residents of Mordor needed a "DRAGON AHEAD" road sign? Just a way of knowing not to go there unless absolutely necessary.

So, I built a crude Dragon skull to look like it was hewn out of the mountain (by the unskilled hands of Orcs, that's my excuse for unevenness). I still need to get the eye sockets done right, and I will need to flesh it out a bit because right now the Dragon's feet are just floating there.

Also, you'll notice the beginnings of a Balrog-esque fire paintjob on the Dragon, that's something I've been working on as well.

I'm still working on the Dragon, not much to share there. I can, however, share my progress on good ol' Sauron. One of the first models I painted, I had to strip him and start again.

This is where he's at now:

Neat idea with the chained boss. I especially like that battered torso he's dragging around.

Nice work.
Bolg is an interesting idea.
I like the dragon colour scheme as it was above. Not often that you see black dragons. Good work.

Thank you!
I won't be able to get any work done over the next little while, but the Dragon does top the list of models I'd like to finish
