Scent of a Gamer

Rohan Royal Guard

I’ve painted another one of my odd Middle Earth miniatures, this time one of the royal guard of Rohan:

I see I neglected to paint the horse’s eyes, something to fix up later! The main benefit of this model was using another one of the base ready schemes from Geek Gaming Scenics. If you’re not familiar these are pre-mixed bags of basing material designed to go on with a single application.

For this royal guard I used the ‘fields of New Zealand’ mix, and I think it has come out nicely. If I were going it again I would have pre-added a large rock over the hole in the base, since this material didn’t have big enough rocks to cover it. Still, I will doubtless use this again.

    He looks great, Dave!
    Where did you get the GGS basing stuff from?

      In Australia you can get them from Zorpazorp although he’s moving to New Zealand later this year

    I really like this one, funnily enough I have just listened to the helms deep bit of the Lord of the Rings.
    I pretty much use GGS all the time on my 28’s I usually use patchy plains. My ancient Greeks used a mix of Mediterranean and another light one. As they were 15mm I sieved them to get rid of some of the larger stone.
