Flocking Middle Earth

 Moria is over run with goblins..! Bolg's bodyguard lead the assault and push the Dwarves back deeper into the depths.
 I found some time last night to put some extra touches on some recent eBay purchases. Gearing up for my 'Battle of the Five Armies' games, I realised I didn't really have any mountainous terrain. This is something I had to rectify!
 I love this model...and they call it a MINE...a MINE!

 This will be great for my Dwarven stronghold and make a great objective in a game.

 I also purchased some cheap hills/rocks. I thought these would be handy for must eras and fitted nicely with my latest interest in the French and Indian war.
 My eBay resin rocks finally get their flock and tufts and so are now finished. It's hard to make yourself crack on at night when your tired, but the sense of joy you get when everything is done is amazing.
 Some extra love was put into this already amazing model. I didn't really have to do much on this one just add some more flock and tufts.
 These large rocks were given patches of granite grey paint and green washes. Then flocked and tufted like everything else.

 They will also make great bases for my Goblins to spill out of. They are covered in deep cracks and crags, these from a distance look like deep tunnels and caves.

The sun finally comes out and the grass starts to grow again. Job done!

WIP Gundabad Troll

 This weeping giant is someone you don't want to run into on a dark night.

 Dark Alliance 20mm plastic troll with green stuff mask and wooden club.

Militia man French Indian War.

Militiaman 1746

A quick sketch I did on an I pad to teach myself how to colour the line of the drawing. It's very quick but does show my new interest in the French Indian war.
