    Hello!
    By popular request (and just because I wanted to!) I've begun a new painting series for The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth, and I thought I'd share the first video here for anyone who might be interested:
    I'm making the series as beginner-friendly as possible, and I really had fun taking a fast and loose approach with the first eighteen figures from the game (the Orcs, Goblins, and Ruffians).  Here's a few pictures of what I've covered so far:



    I hope some of you will join me for the painting journey!

    I've got another PDF guide to share - this time for the Snowtroopers, which can be downloaded for free HERE.

    Now, bring on the shiny new minis for the video treatment!

    Hi fellow painters!
    I'm sorry these are a little late in arriving, but I've got a PDF guide for the Fleet Troopers which I painted a while ago which you download directly HERE.

    Watch out for the Snowtroopers which I'll also be releasing soon.
    Happy painting!
    Sorastro.

    Wow - that's really stunning work mate!  You've got a lovely amount of weathering, good level of contrast, and the windows really turned out fantastic!  Thanks so much for sharing

    Hey fantastic work Zrob!  
    Ha - yes, I have certainly honed my vocal delivery over the years, and investing in an outrageously-good microphone since then also helps!  I rarely like to look at my older stuff but I'm glad it's still proving useful

    Weirdly enough, for the first time ever, I actually got an email from Asmodee with tracking info on my preorder. It says it'll be here for me on Friday. That'll be the first post-Covid release to actually arrive on time for me if that's true, which is very nice. It's one of the things I've most been looking forward to, aside from the last Dream-Eaters scenario for AHLCG (which showed up like two weeks late, but it was worth the wait).
    Now I just gotta sit back and wait for Sorastro to start making tutorials to give me painting ideas.

    Ha ha!   Well, as far as I’m aware his hair colour is never actually specified in the books so you could paint it blue and the purists would have no amunition to use against you!  Having said that, his father’s hair is stated as being golden in colour so there is a case for leaning that way.  
    I will probably most likely go with the dark hair as depicted in the fantastic character art however, partly to aesthetically unify the miniature with the hero card, but also to separate this interpretation of the characters from that of the movies. 😀

    Hello!
    In preparation for the arrival of the Shadowed Paths expansion, I've finally completed work on the Villains of Eriador:

    Alongside the video I produced for Gulgotar, I've also produced a couple of PDF guides detailing how I painted Coalfang and Atarin if you're interested.
    Now - where's that Balrog... 😁

    Hey folks!
    I've created a PDF guide for the last hero - Beravor if anyone's interested, which means I've managed to tutorialise (new word!) the entire Core Set - hooray! 
    Onto the Villains of Eriador next...

    Hello fellow painters! 
    Now we have a painting sub forum  I thought I'd start a fresh thread where I can share pictures of my progress with the Legion minis.  Here's a link to the complete video tutorial playlist showing how I painted them.
    Here are some pics of the minis I've covered so far:


















    Happy Painting!
