Ambush at Amon Hen completed   2 comments

The last four figures from the set completed. Contrast paints , mainly Templar black and brown cybor. Gulliman flesh . Then over painted with citadel colours.

Aragorn and Gimli rhinox brown then mixed with graveyard earth or dark flesh as layers gradually lighter. For Legolas camo green base then mix of catechan green and camo for highlights. Blue for tunic and grey for trousers. For cloaks grey then highlights with lighter stages of grey. Washes such as nuln oil especially to armour and sparing use of Devlan mud in the creases. Varnish then corrections and touch ups before final varnish.

Edit: don’t forget to add Strider’s beard (cygor brown) like I did before taking this photo.

  1. Nice work, it’s a shame this kit went out of production as it had some great poses in.

  2. Indeed. I was lucky enough to get them in the recent re-print. These older sets are really nicely proportioned.
