Painting 'The War of the Ring' Boardgame (Pt.1 Free Peoples)
One of the reasons I have been working so slowly lately is that I have been quite busy with a 'secret' project. Well, not really secret at all, it just happens I hadn't shown you anything from it. As the title says, I've been busy with this boardgame:
As a matter of fact I painted the Spanish version, but you will see no difference
A friend of mine got this game and he pretended us to play. But there was a problem. The minis were unpainted!
Ahhh, dull, impersonal, monochromatic plastic...
Of course I will not suffer that. Not under my roof.
I took upon myself the duty of painting all those poor guys. So, before I could realize, I had new 205 minis on my workbench to paint. It has taken me some time, but I can say that it has been worth of it. Let's see them:
Gondor Infantry (regular troops)
Gondor Cavalry (elites and leaders)
Wood Elves with their wannabe Mearas
Rangers of the North
More guys from the Grey Company or so
And the Dwarves
Here we have the main Characters, the Fellowship of the Ring:
Some day I'll learn how to take photos, I promise
As you can see the minis are not based on the movies, but on different illustrations by John Howe, so there is a slight change on designs. However I've followed more or less the general movie lookings when possible, as the iconography is so recognizable and strong.
Later this same week I'll show you the Forces of Darkness, servants of Sauron.
Hope you like it!
