Grima son of Galmod, aka 'Wormtongue'.
I'm really pleased with how I've painted him as he has the potential to be very dull. So I've taken more care than usual with highlighting and shading, and used brown rather than black on the cloak's collar to add a bit of subtle variation.
I'm also genuinely pleased with his face, I think it might be one of the best I've done.
In game, Grima isn't a combat piece. Instead he deploys with the enemy and messes with their ability to use might to do heroic things, which means he adds something very different to Isengard's arsenal.
Nicely done and suitably pasty looking.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I tried highlighting up with a cream, but he looked to yellow. However, when I put a flesh colour over it, the cream really washed it out.Delete
Excellent job mate. Mostly dark hued painted models tend to blend into themselves but this is really well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I was definitely conscious of that and worked quite hard to get that definition. I actually learned a few things whilst painting this one.Delete
Oh this is rather good.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much.Delete
Very nice, makes me want to watch the movies again!ReplyDelete
Guess what I've made use of lockdown to do. :)Delete
Very well done. The face really looks great. Nailed it.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I just now wish I'd done the faces on my Joker models the same way.Delete
That's a great job! Looks spot on.ReplyDelete
