I have been waiting patiently to get through some backlog and commissions to start painting my hobbits.  I have finished the last of my commissions for the foreseeable future, so I splurged and painted two test models. I am looking forward to starting the rest and building a few more Hobbit holes.

Troll Drummer

This is from the plastic Troll kit.  I think it is one of the best kits GW has put out, simply because if the combinations that can be made.  I used a sponge to paint the majority of the skin pattern, building up colors with subtle changes to the mix.  I like how it turned out, and will be using this method in the future for my Mordor trolls.

Sam & Frodo in Orc Armor

Probably two of my most favorite miniatures in the range.  At first I was tossing these two into the backlog I may never get to pile, but took a chance on painting them.  I was very happy with the detail sculpted into the miniature, and although it is a limited color palette, I think it works very well with these two.

I painted these up for a Secret Santa event.  I believe these miniatures are from West End Games around the 90's.

Forge World Amon Sul (Weathertop)

This was a promotional piece made by Games Workshop (Forgeworld) to promote the Lord of the Rings miniature game.  I was lucky to find one for sale.  I cleaned it up, primed it and then using many layers and shades of browns and greys, painted it up.

Leading Edge: ALIENS

Painting these up for a client.  I have the entire USCM squad to paint.  This is an extra that I used as a paint sample.  I am going to make some changes on the colors, and try not to make the cammo pattern so busy.
