LOTR Wildman of Druadan and Thanks to some bloggers!

Sometimes I want to paint something different as my 1/72 scale figures. This time it's one figure of Games Workshop Lord Of The Rings sets. Picked this up in a hobby shop that waas stopping. Could it buy with a 50% reduction and I couldn't resist.

I might be the only one, but how bigger the scale how harder to paint for me. You see more details on these 28mm figures, so you can't ignore them. I did my very best on him and used the boxart as example to paint him. The base isn't finished yet because I want to wait untill the others are painted.

Well I hope you like the result!









I also want to say thanks to some fellow bloggers who sended me the prizes I won in their "Give Aways".

First one is Pascal from Sam's Minis World. He sended me a "Secret figure" from this "Give Away". And you know what, I will keep it secret for a while. Only thing I can tell, it talks a lot! :-D

Second one is Stefan from Monty's Caravan. I was lucky to win in this "Give Away", this fantastic model of a Horsa. Strange thing about this is that I won it after reading "A bridge to far" from Cornelius Ryan. I must read more books related with Give Aways.


Speaking about books. Not so long ago Dave from One man and his brushes did a "Give Away" with some books in it. You might have guessed it already but also in this "Give Away" I had one of the lucky numbers. My prize was this book with a lot of uniform plates in it. Very usefull for me to paint my Napoleonic figures!


Thank you Pascal, Stefan and Dave for these nice things!

Welcome to my blog!!!!!

    1. This shop is closed for about three or four years now. I did some good purchases like this figures and a lot of paintcans.
      I rather should have seen it open but you can't beat the WWW.

    2. Shame as I needed some more lotr miniatures. True WWW is a harsh competitor for most brick and mortar shops.

      Kind regards

  2. very nice figure (even if the GW are not my preferred ones...) !
    and perfect painting work!
    I agree with you: painting 28mm is very different than painting 1/72 because of the details. In 1/72, we have to focus on the details only for some figures of high sculpt level.
    You're right about the secret figure : it's secret !!
    but it's a good scale for you, I'm sure !
    I'm curious to see the plane built and painted ...

  5. You're right, there are adjustments that need to be made when you paint in different scales. Base colour, wash then drybrush techniques don't work well on 25mm and up.

    You've done a great job here, excelent.

    That plane is going to be a sweet build!

  14. Excellent painting work, Peter !
    and interesting figure .
    for adding some "blabla" to your post, I just want to say that the Drúedain of Ghân-buri-Ghân's clan came to the aid of the Rohirrim during the War of the Ring.
    They don't appear in the movies, like some other characters of the Books... not enough fun for PJ, maybe ?
    .... and thanks for the thanks !
