Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

The Fellowship of the Ring

Around 2003 I painted the Fellowship of the Ring for my mother, a huge Lord of the Rings fan.

I decided it’s time for an upgrade, a decision I made when I found the plastic Fellowship sprue lying in a drawer under the house. The last group I painted were the original metal models, but the plastics seem just as nice.

Here are the Fellowship themselves, all undercoated and ready to go.

The next step is to get a modelled based ready to take all nine models. I have an opened box of Osgiliath terrain, which should help nicely.

I must get this project complete before the first week of April this year.

    Ohh man – that’s a trip down memory lane. I remember having the original metal minis. Awesome. I really hope you enjoy painting them!

      Yes, that’s Sam Gamgee. The figures’ poses are based on the Balin’s Tomb sequence from the Fellowship film.
