Post subject:  Painting the Middle-Earth

Hi! This is the first time I publish something here. I subscribed some time ago and now I decided to show some of my miniatures!
I'm painting some Uruk-hai and some Warriors of Rohan at the moment. Very soon I will receive some new models from LOTR and The Hobbit.

This is an Uruk-hai warrior I painted recently and I have to make the base. The only thing that I don't really like is the White Hand symbol, but I didn't want to repaint the shield, so I leaved it like that.

Then I painted this Warrior of Rohan and this time also the base. :-D

Very nice - The weathering on the cloak and the nice blood splatter on the shield really add something!

I really like the blue armour of the uruk. It contrasts well with his skin.

Thank you guys! Yesterday I worked on the bases of my models and I hope to finish today. I will probably post other pictures during the day.

I am curious what it is that you think is wrong with the White Hand symbol. It looks good to me. I imagine that is the way they are meant to look. I mean, it is not like Saruman had some sort of sigil he printed the armours with, right? The symbols were made by hand of the orcs themselves?

For the Uruk-hai, I am a big fan of the blood splatter! I had the same situation as you on a similar model where I painted the white hand but immediately regretted it. I think yours is good, also the blood splatter makes the hand seem more hidden. Hair contrast looks great and the finish on the skin is nice. It's not my style but I admire it and want to try to achieve it on a few of my models.

For the Rohan model, the wood on the spear is mesmerizing! I have tried this effect in the past but my lighter lines are always too straight, yours almost make it seem as if he has an elven spear... if that makes any sense.

I had to wait the moderator to approve my message and now I think I can post without waiting. :D

@slinky - Thank you! Making historical models helps a lot when you have to add weathering!
@GreatKhanArtist - Thank you! It was something new I wanted to try and I think that if you use the right color without exaggerating, you can achieve a good result.
@Alhvar - I think the hand it's a bit too big and too regular. Yes, I think the white hands are made by the orcs and I this is why they should not be regular like mine.
@draked - I'm glad you like the way I painted it. I paint all my miniatures this way since roughly two years. The process is the following: base color, wash, base color again leaving the wash in the recessses, 1 highlight and effects (blood, rust, oxyde...). For the wood on the spear I used size 0 brush and I slowly painted a line, then I turned the model and restarted painting in other way.

Yesterday I finished to paint two Berserkers and also the base for the Uruk warrior. I also tried to paint the base border with a light brown (XV-88) and I think it's a fantastic color for these purpose. Way better than black!

Nice berserkers. And the overall impression of the uruk in the middle is much better after it has been properly based. Not that it was in any way bad before.

Hmm, maybe a troll lent its hand..? I would not worry too much about it.

Great work on the Uruks all around!
The goblin looks as nice as a goblin can look :wink: The purple wash (?) is a little too abrupt for my taste, the base is really amazing though 8)
