Slowly getting somewhere with these nice miniatures from Copplestone Castings. Nearly 100 orcs! On the one hand, I find it more enjoyable painting at the 10mm scale than at the 28mm scale. On the other hand, it may become a bit repetitive towards the end. 🙂 I am very impressed by people who manage to crank out massive 10mm armies, seemingly without any major effort.
Yay, I just finished painting up a tiny hobbit! I’m happy I pulled it off, because my eyes and hands were tested while working on some of the details. Something is wrong with the photo as well (it was not easy to photograph!) because there is a greenish tint to it. Anyway, the miniature is from Copplestone Castings. Lovely models; I think I will paint a few more of the hobbits, if inspiration strikes again.
It would have been fun to pick up a copy of Games Workshop’s Middle Earth: Strategy Battle Game and try the game in 10mm scale. On the other hand, buying the two main books would cost about 80 euro, far more than the models themselves! Something to think about, at least.
(By the way, this must be Sam, right? I’m guessing so due to his massive backpack…)
As they say, every good miniature project needs a good side project! For some reason, I just started working on a Fellowship of the Ring using Copplestone miniatures. Now, it could be because I am rereading the Lord of the Rings triology. And because I just happen to have the miniatures at hand… At least there are more orcs coming for my original project as well! 🙂
