I say warband because 700 points worth of models is hardly an army
I used to collect the lotr models a looonnnng time ago, back when it was at the height of its popularity, But recently I've gotten back into the warhammer hobby, This is my first attempt at constructing a coherent force, I think its going well.
I customised the Champion and Mounted Champion/Army standard bearer (I use the word customize lightly) but all the other models have just been painted by me, no messing about.
Any constructive critisism is always welcomed 8Y
(and I also apolagise for the quality of the photo, My lamp is broken so I didn't have a good light source)
These look awesome!
Can we some some close-ups? Rep to you!
what am I, the pope?
Yeah I'm gonna do some closeups when I get my light sorted out, I tried it but they all came out too oversaturated. I really want to post a closeup of the mounted champion, all the detail is on his back and sides. Thanks for the reply
its all lookin pretty sweet.
The champions sword looks mint and the spawn are just pure evil gribblyness.
I can't see anything that majorly needs changing, your doing really well. Have you tried washes on skin to give a bit more shading?
rep to you. ;Y
That is really nice work mate, rep to you.
The only critique I can make is that the skin on your mounted champion looks a bit plasticy and polished - a few more layers of shading on it and it will look sweet.
This is what I do with my skin tones:
Start with a basecoat of tanned flesh - get it in all the recessess
Coat of Bronzed Flesh
Highlight Bronzed Flesh + Elf Flesh
Highlight Elf Flesh + Bronzed Flesh
Final Highlight of Elf Flesh (when doing elves or something else pale I go further - adding Bleached Bone to the Elf Flesh for another couple of layers).
This, I find, provides a nice depth to the skin tones and stops it looking waxy and plastic.

I find I get shine like that when I use inks on my models. A lot of people will dullcoat their models to get rid of it, but I've never done that so I can't say a lot more. What I do instead in take some paint (you'd want a flesh color) and water it down heavily - to the point where it is almost all water - and apply this to the areas that have been inked. Since it is mostly water it doesn't change the color of the model much, but the little bit of paint helps to take the shine away.
This, of course, assumes that you want to get rid of that shine. These guys look fantastic as is.
