    Over the last few weeks, well since Christmas really, I’ve been working slowly on some Iron Hills stuff by Forgeworld for The Hobbit SBG. I’ve got enough photos together now to make it worth posting something I think.

    I should say that I paint for the tabletop. That means that the models are perhaps a little more “high contrast” and less subtely blended than would be the norm for a painting competition,as this looks better at 3′ or so as you don’t lose the details. It is purely an aesthetic choice and nothing to do with the fact I’m crap at it at all, no not at all… :-P

    First off I painted up a blister of 3 Goat Riders.

    Then, more recently I started work on the hog father himself: Dain II.

    Working on the foot version now:

    Apologies, but whatever I do the forum software seems to want to post the photo upside down!

    Anyhow, he’s just basecoated and washed, so you aren’t missing a great deal…

    I’d never painted Sir Billy Connelly before. Must admit that it is unlikely I ever will again!

    Very cool indeed – loving how these characters and the mounted Dwarves have been turning out!

    OK, so this isn’t dwarf-related: my plans got hijacked by a certain Wizard! But these are Rhosgobel rabbits, so I didn’t really ever have much of a chance!

    It was a fun way to spend the weekend, even though Finecast (grrrrrr….) did make assembly a bit more of a chore than it needed to be!
