For the City of Kings!

First step of the Gondor project is done and ready for the battlefield. Due to several other projects it took me quite some time to finish again as I started working on the men of Minas Tirith in October 2015. Now I am eager to test them as they are my first good LotR/Hobbit warband thus far. ...

Boromir

You carry the fate of us all, little one. If this is indeed the will of the Council, then Gondor will see it done. Boromir – The Fellowship of the Ring Back in April 2016 I started painting the Fellowship of the Ring. I continued doing so including several brakes.

Next one will be Legolas as I continue painting them in their order of appearance during the ...

Carving my way through the metal of the miniature was a tough job though. ...

It is basically about very small and very fast matches with only 150 points and on a 24″ x 24″ board. That’s the perfect answer regarding all my unfinished projects and of course for a lot of new ideas aswell, haha. This is the 150 points list I came up with: Captain of Minas Tirith – ...

For Gondor!

These were the first good miniatures I painted for the Lord of the Rings after all those years. I went for Gondor as I think there’s plenty of neat stuff one can choose to build an army from. It’s quite convenient that this box is exactly a 100 points thus being a good start. I’ll paint them and test them on the board. If they’re fun, I’ll continue with them. ...
