Thanks to the OTT team, I was really chuffed to get a Golden Button for this project. It’s great to see that the Middle Earth community is so active and the games appeal continues amongst players old and new alike. To keep @Dignity happy, here are some sequence pictures of some old metal ringwraiths that have been refreshed. First up the old models:

These were then stripped using BioStrip as the previous character elves. A simple process of dipping them in a small bowl and leaving for a couple of hours, followed by a wash in some luke warm water and a bit of a scrub with a toothbrush worked nicely. I then rebased them on new 25mm bases and used some magnetic basing material on the bottom of the base, for ease of storage.

The models were primed with black and then drybrused with GW dark reaper, which is a grey/green colour. The metals were done with GW leadbelcher, a wash of Nuln Oil and then a highlight with Vallejo Platinum. Finally the whole model got a thinned down wash of Nuln Oil to tie all the colours back together. Really simple to paint and I have been meaning to get these done for years. I’m going to try and run a Weathertop scenario with them, from the 1st edition LoTR rulebook!

There we have it, just for Justin a quick breakdown of the first Mordor elements to get Spring Cleaned from my slowly diminishing backlog. Would really appreciate any comments and suggestions of what Middle Earth models that you would like to see next. Am thinking of trying my hand on the Witch King, to lead his fellow wraiths on the field of battle.

Stay safe.

@halfmileduck nice work once again. What’s left in the painting pile? Any group shots of your progress so far?
