LOTR Moria & Angmar Army

Another one of my overdue posts includes my Lord of the Rings army that I took to Adepticon. They've been done for months now, but I only just got around to photographing most of them. I posted some bits of the army here and there as I finished them, but now I've got the whole bunch together.

One big happy goblin family.
 I had a really nice time painting these guys. The goblins themselves took quite a bit of time, but all the other guys were quick and enjoyable. With all the fun characters as part of the army, it was more interesting than painting 50 or so marines.

Lots and lots of goblins. The goblin king was a last-minute addition but he was worth it. I really love the pose of the model, on the fallen column.

The Barrow Wights were among the first models I finished after the goblins. I painted the pair up in a day. I was really happy with how they turned out, considering I didn't spend as much time on them as I usually would. I might be getting a little speedier at painting.

Baby Balrog of course.
 My Dweller in the Dark got a whole post of his own, but he was way too much fun not to include along with everyone else.

I finished the foot Tainted ages and ages ago, but only got around to the mounted recently. I was skeptical of my ability to paint horses, but after all those Saga horses, one more was like nothing at all. I did go back and touch of the Tainted on foot, because it had been over a year since I painted him.

 Of all of them, the Dead Marsh Spectres are definitely my favorite. They were so, so fun to work on and I think they turned out the best of everyone. I got the inspiration for their paint job from a Golden Daemon entry photo in one of the Warhammer Visions magazines. The one in the middle is the one I like best.


  1. Very nice. Mind posting your Army List?

  2. Great looking force. Love the Dweller! I'd really like to know how they performed at the event!
