The King

Aragorn/Strider
10 mm




"I see," laughed Strider. "I look foul and feel fair. Is that it? All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost."
- Aragorn, The Fellowship of the Ring

  1. Love the color choices, they are so natural. Neutral colors (browns, gays and some greens) can be really tricky but you got em ultra smooth.

    The hair and cloak highlights are astonishing for that scale. I can believe how much you've improved lately, you d#mn b!st@rd! =)

    I retain my sanity thinking that it takes you ages to paint a mini at that level (so please don't tell me those are 1 hour results -even for a tiny mini-)

    Can't wait so see what's next.

  2. "The hair and cloak highlights are astonishing for that scale."

    Thanks :) The secret is, however, that at this scale blending is almost impossible except on large surfaces like the cloak. So the hair and flesh highlights are almost "dabbed on", but the effect is surprisingly convincing, even in person. It's like impressionism or something ;)
