Dark Things




This piece is getting surprisingly close to completion, I've put gloss acrylic medium on as (muddy) water... whether it's convincing or not is another matter, but I'm hoping it looks more natural once the grass and vegetation etc. is added. I'm thinking the corpse needs a bit of blood too.


Ghoul
30 mm




This is one of the figures I received in the latest Mini Exchange. It's a ghoul - not an undead creature, but a pseudo-humanoid which roams the night, feeding on corpses. Delish!

Group Shot

The Fellowship of the Ring
10 mm




Well, as requested here they are, all together. Shiny! It was a lot of fun painting these little guys, I'm ready to get back to some slightly larger work now, but I'd definitely do some more 10 mm if I can find some good minis out there.

Mini Exchange

An abundance!

The Ring Bearers

Frodo and Sam
6 mm




"What a tale we have been in, Mr. Frodo, haven't we?... I wish I could hear it told! Do you think they'll say: Now comes the story of Nine-Fingered Frodo and the Ring of Doom? And then everyone will hush, like we did, when in Rivendell they told us the tale of Beren One-Hand and the Great Jewel. I wish I could hear it! And I wonder how it will go on after our part."

The Warrior

Boromir
10 mm




"The men of Gondor are valiant, and they will never submit; but they may be beaten down. Valour needs first strength, and then a weapon. Let the Ring be your weapon, if it has such power as you say. Take it and go forth to victory!"
- Boromir, The Fellowship of the Ring

Update

My sleuth's base, in progress:



Yes, I sculpted that face-down dead guy myself, that's about the limit of my abilities. Don't look to closely at the hands. He still needs a knife sticking out of his back.
