Warg Rider.

Yes another LotR figure rolls (or should that be gallops) of my painting table. To be honest I do not have VERY many more to do.

The figure is a Games Workshop Warg rider. . It is a 28mm figure, and was an eBay purchase. Following "Fantorical" blogs posts about Songs of blade and heroes Lord of the rings posts. So feel free to blame or praise him for the inspiration   (Link to BLOG). I do have a couple more to do so you have not seen the last of the Lord of the Rings figures just yet.

The shadows are present on the pics due to the dullness of the weather so kindly forgive that unless you are powerful enough to change the local weather here, in which case I would ask you to do that instead.

Consider this a short interlude as I carry on with more Burpas. Which I hope to show next time.

So until next time, take care have fun and paint like crazy.

All the best Clint

  1. Very nice Clint, the muted colour pallet works well on this model

    1. Thanks Dave. It is remarkable how much a colour is dulled by a couple of washes, in this instance a Brown and Black wash! It was looking quite bright before.

  2. I totally agree with Dave's comment - he is well painted.

    1. Thank you Bryan. As mentioned above a good wash can make more figures look better in my opinion. (depends on the figure of course).

  3. Marvellous "LoTR" mini, Clint, and a paint-job to match as well. More than happy to be blamed for causing such a corking posting :-)

    1. Thank you Blax. Or you can take any credit due to the inspiration if that suits you better. That is the wonder of looking at other blogs. I really do get a huge inspiration from other blogs.

    1. Thank you Joe. Burpas tomorrow. As for this figure It rounds out the collection somewhat. But I know at least one player who will want more no matter how many I actually have.

    1. Thank you Tamsin. I think the Warg riders were one of the best parts of the films. But that is just personnel choice.

  7. They certainly made some cracking models for LOTR. I really wished they had retained production of these in metal.

    1. Thank you Simon. I quite agree. Still if you are careful eBay can still provide them cheaper than paying Games Workshop prices.
