The Great Beast of Gorgoroth Showcase

This was another interesting project I did right before thanksgiving last year.  Infact, I think I was in its final WIP stages when thanksgiving came around.  I had like 2 or 3 more orcs to do so technically, it was almost ready.

Needless to say, anyone who picked this model up knows that it had many issues.  So many issues infact that Games Workshop had to stop production for a few weeks and fix the casts.  I unfortunately wasn't immune to the errors in the casting process, so again like the Watcher model, I had to improvise with greenstuff.  I could go on and on about Games Workshop lack of quality control with this particular model, but its still a pretty cool model and a nightmare to run up against in the game.

So with out a further larger wall of text....


I would like to have another one so I could run two of these beasts in 1000+ games, but it'll probably be a long time before I'd attempt another one, and I got way too much in my backlog to paint first.  I probably would do a layering/blending technique with the beast next time instead of a down and dirty drybrush that I did do.  I personally like my paint job better than the ones you can buy off of ebay for $200+.
