So lets kick this blog off with something interesting and fun..............
Needless to say, I bought this the day it came out along with a hardback rules book. I have most of it painted up. I took a little break from it to tackle my Citadel Realms of Battle Board which I'll show off in a later blog. I'd finish it up completely this week but I'm taking a slight break from painting to play Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. I digress...

|And here is Thorin's Company (all 15 of them)|
I'm not going to lie, but I really had fun painting these. The last few Goblin's started wearing on me, but after my first couple test ones I started doing them in blocks of 5-7 and completed them rather quickly. As for the dwarves, they took a little longer and I spent alot of time on each one, trying a few new techniques and even busted out my magnifying glass to try and do the eyes.
And these are the last 5 mini's left to do. I started to paint the goblin king, but for some reason he started getting spackled with dry paint still stuck in my large drybrush. I started to justify it in my head, but he just looked terrible so he took a little swim in some simple green over the weekend. I'll have to redo the seam-lines with green stuff again. I haven't even started on the scribe yet and I really want to make the Goblin captain and Grinnah pop, so I planned to put some extra time into them. As for Radagast, I think hes going to have to wait. After I get the last 4 gobo's done, the terrain needs to be primed and painted, so Radagast is going to have to wait. I've also been eying my unpainted Gondor army for quite some time, so that'll be coming up hopefully in the near future.
