Here is some MIRKWOOD ARMY painted last weeks. I must admit its was so difficult and time consuming task, and i dont know if i would like to do it again:) But im pretty satisfy with effect. All was hand painted with brushes, i use glaze and blending techniques, etc (no drybrushing).

If you are interested in them let me know (

Radagast with Sebastian - painted Hobbit miniature (HOBBIT)

yesterday just after i receive glory parcel i have open Radagast with Sebastian blister and today i manage to finish him. Miniature is great and i did not find any miscasts or bubbles. Im really happy that i get him as he is OOP and i think not many of them left.
I'm  satisfy with final effect.

Movie :


Lets hunt some.... sell outs!

im really happy as yesterday i have receive package stuffed with Lotr/Hobbit miniatures. About a week ago i have found a toy store that have big sell out of old stuff and guess what, they have Lotr/Hobbit products also. All prices about 60-70% lower so i made a huge shopping. Im so happy as I have great material for my paintings efforts. Dunlendings, corsairs, plastic wargs, looots of new mirkwood and gundabad, dol amroth, some oop stuff like few Radagasts, mahud king, armoured Faramir, over 40 blisters and few boxes. Im totally happy :P

I highly recommend you looking for Gw products in shops not definitely focused on wargaming.

Painted GUNDABAD ORCS - warparty 1

few weeks ago i have finished a pack of Gundabad orcs. I think this miniatures are really great,
the sculpt are done very well, however casting is rather bad. Assembling  require a lots of work with knife and green stuff.
However i would highly recommend this minis as the pose and sculpt are very natural and  similar to what we see in movie.
The only drawback is that they are made of finecast and are quite expensive if you would like to build larger force. In future i would definitely work more with Gundabads.
Kind regrds

Gundabad BLACKSHIELD goblins (LOTR)- painted


a week ago i have finished some old  commision work.
It was a pack of matal Gundabad blackshields. i find it to be amuseing to experiment with those greenskins. this was my first goblins painted ever. Im quite satisfy with the fur colours and overall look.

Gundabad Orc captain - painted (HOBBIT)

 for my German friend yesterday i have painted a Gundabd orc captain. As a colour scheme i was inspired by "red orc" concept art from Weta.
 I really like this reddish type of armour, however it should look more like rusted than so blody gore. Finaly im satisfy with bloody effect. I plan to experiment in future with other colours.

And some pictures.

Fake alert - episode 1 (Shieldbearer)

I remember when I returned (after several years) to collecting LotR miniatures I really wanted to avoid a situation that I pick up fake miniatures.

As I don’t want to spend money on cast copies I have to check every miniature and try to track those corrupted :)

After some examination I could recognise cast fakes easily. Most of fakes are the same and each miniature has the same characteristic flaws (from the same "producer").

Today I would like to present copy of  Dwarf Shieldbearer. 
Since last year  I have seen at least a few of them sold on EB, it is a pity that  people pay for this cast crap (20-30 GBP).
Most characteristic thing on cast copy would be:
1. Axe, is really badly cast, and it looks as if it was broken, and glued together. Also fingers are barely visible. There is no holes in the axe. Here you can see how the axe should look like.

2. Almost no trace of fingers.
3. Shallow chainmail, holes are filled with metal material.
4. You can hardly read the miniature name on the base bar and sometimes base bar is missing at all. 

-take a close look at the axe
-check the base bar
-control detail depth
-ask for a detailed photo if you ar not sure

Here is an example of my own miniature:

Gandalf Minas Tirith - review (LotR)

for my first review I decided to choose one of the iconic hero of the Lord of the Rings realm:

Gandlaf Minas Tirith  (Gandalf the White on Shadowfax)

The miniature was released on 18th April 2010 together with other models for War of the Rings supplement. The miniature was produced by Games Workshop and is part of their Strategy Battle Game range. You can find its first official pictures in White Dwarf no.352

We can have  this miniature  unassembled and unpainted,  packed in blister. First edition was made of metal, but now we can obtain only resin version (packed together with Gandalf on foot). Old metal version now is out of production, but it is still possible to get it on the second hand market (recommended).
Release price was £ 8, now for the resin version you will pay
£ 22 . If you wish to get metal version, be prepared for the price around £ 30-40.
This is the third model of mounted Gandalf and second version of Gandalf the White. All its predecessors were really great miniatures.
I watch closely whole "Return of the King" and at first glance I thought this shot below shows Gandalf meeting Witch king,  but after further examination I realised I was wrong.

It is the scene just before breaching Minast Tirith main Gates. For a few seconds we can see Gandalf rising Glamdring and shouting "fire" so the deadly cloud of Gondorian arrows can properly welcome incoming Trolls:))

Gandalf was sculpted perfectly Michael Perry.  Pose is full of emotion and greatly recreate scene from the movie. Shadowfax is, in my opinion, the best horse miniature released by Games Workshop (LOTR).

Level of detail, depth, anatomy are simply AWESOME. Small gaps after assembling can be easily filled with green stuff.

Summarising, I would say it is one of the best miniatures out of all LOTR range. I can highly recommend getting metal version (second hand only).

Overall note: 8+
Pose quality: 9
Sculpt: 8
Rarity: R3 (still available in FC)
