Painting Challenge: Hobbits!

Welcome to the September Painting Challenge. This months subject is Hobbits.

Your entry should be a single miniature and the model must be a Hobbit, whether it be Frodo, Pippin, Bilbo, Farmer Maggot or an unnamed militia.

1. To enter the painting challenge, the miniature you are painting must not be painted before starting and picture proof must be shown of the miniature 'pre-painted' (unprimed, undercoated or if you are repainting and old miniature - in its' original paint scheme) otherwise your entry will not be eligible.

2. You may join the painting challenge in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT of October 6th 2017. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged. A maximum of 4 photos of your completed entries please, this allows you to show your miniatures off from front, back and each side which is more than enough. If you would like to compile more than four pictures into one file it is ok to do that.

3. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the challenge. The challenge winner will be decided by the vote of the OR community. The community will choose one winner and one runner-up from the completed miniatures. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, artist improvement, etc. There is no prize available for the winners of this challenge, the challenge is solely for community participation and as an incentive for people to reduce their backlog and improve their painting skills.

4. With the introduction of The League Winners from the previous month are now eligible to enter and win consecutive challenges without penalty.

Good luck! Second Breakfast for the winner on me!

Excellent detailing on such a small figure. Lovely work.

Very fine job on the little fella indeed, great rust effects. Will see if I manage an entry for this month; painting the small ones doesn't tend to take too long.
