I’m on holiday with Madame Padre this week, but have some images on iCloud that I haven’t posted yet. Here are four figures from GW’s LOTR range. The middle two are from the “Gondorian Command” blister, and the two identical fellows with bows and swords are the “Beregond” figure, who will make a great captain of archers figure. One is a prize from my blog competition this spring, which is for Baconfat if he ever wants to tell me how to get it to him. Since I was painting one Gondorian, I thought I might as well paint the others in my lead pile.
A very simple palette, really. I used Citadel Chainmail for the armour, then a wash of black ink, then picked out the highlights, edges and embossed tree on the breastplates with Citadel Mithril Silver. I simply used a dark blue for the cloaks and tunics, with a medium blue dry brush.
And here’s the sum total of my Gondorian army to date: the command group, one Beregond figure, and the three figures from the Osgiliiath veterans blister. I have a whack of plastic Gondorians still to paint, but this is a start.
These figures bring my 2014 totals to:

20mm Foot: 33, 20mm Artillery: 2, 20mm Vehicles: 2, 20mm Terrain Pieces: 2

6mm Foot: 120, 6mm vehicles: 4, 6mm Terrain Pieces: 2
