When not enjoying the adventures in Middle-Earth, I paint the miniatures. Normally I don’t paint miniatures from boardgames and I don’t like batch painting but for this game I made an exception. I started with the Goblin Scouts. Next one on the planning is Legolas.

Those Goblin Scouts and Ruffians are the nicest painted minis from this line that I've seen, very well done.

I'm not that fond of Legolas, but that's more to do with the sculpt than the paint job.  Bow and arrow looks pretty chunky, for instance.  Face doesn't look particularly elven.

Thanks for the compliment.

What do you think of the colour scheme of Legolas?

Green and brown, looks good to me.  I probably would have gone with lighter hair.  What brand of paints are you using?

Different brands, mostly Vallejo Model for this one

That's the brand I've been using lately.  Haven't felt the urge to paint the minis for this game though.  I think of them more as game pieces, I guess.

These look fantastic! 

As to painting board game minis, it's a slippery slope. Once you start doing so it gets hard to play something unpainted. I'm firmly stuck in the "paint all the things" mentality.

Sorastro has inspired me to take my very amateur hands to painting my lotr set and it's great to see other takes - @wernerkellens your work on Legolas is excellent, you must have a very steady hand! 😃

I really liked those Ruffians, especially the way you varied the colors so they would all look different.  But still stuck to a theme by using just a few colors for their "uniform".
