Dwarves of Thorin's Company

It's been over a month since my last post, so sorry for that!! School and whatnot eating away at every second...

Anyway, I've painted some of Thorin's Company, so without further ado, here are the pics:

Bofur: It was a nice challenge to try and paint a deep, golden yellow colour and I'm quite pleased with the result. And he's Northern Irish too :)

Balin: I had a go at a bit of freehand on the edges of his coat. He is quite an important chap, after all.

Bifur: Again, the yellow was fun. The beard was a good painting challenge too!

Bombur: The bright ginger hair was a treat to paint. All the Escape from Goblin Town characters have loads of details to pick out, really fantastic models all round!


Dori: As with the other Dwarves, I'm trying to keep with the colours described in the books, which means Dori (and Nori, still a work in progress) have purple clothing. I don't actually have any purple paint, so it's all mixed red and blue.

And the leader of our company, Thorin Oakenshield: You might notice an extra detail I included that is not present in the films, but is in the books. It's the gold chain around his neck - the trim on his collar made a handy V-shape which I simply painted gold!

That's all for now. Coming some time in the future should be more Dwarves/goblins etc., Radagast, Goblin Town scenery, Fiefdoms... Oh dear! the delights of backlogs...
