This week saw the mighty Misty Mountain Goblins take on Saruman and his Orc army. WOTR at 1000pts each. The Goblins were victorious. Thanks to Matt for the game. Note to both of us, more painting required!
I got this idea from the web but have lost the reference sorry.
Basically GW giant spiders cost £8.20 for two and there aren’t many on eBay. So I bought these plastics spiders for about £2.50 from the bay (12 in pack – search ‘plastic spiders’
They look like this in the wild. BTW my kids love them
I’ve base-coated them black as they are a bit gaudy and they’re ready to play with. I will add some red bits to make them a bit more interesting and do some basing stuff later. I’ve got 48 of them in total, all for about a tender. GW ones would have cost over 200 quid!!!
Here is a balrog I bought off eBay. It’s the eBay picture I was too keen to get started before I stripped it it detox, then paint thinners. Note that the thinners is very strong and smelly stuff. It melted the Inge and the base, so I repurchased them.
So there’s the stripped and re-assembled balrog. I love the pose of this model and look forward to painting it
The second picture has a warg chieftain in it too (well I couldn’t resist it when I was on the GW site buying the new wings.
More pics to follow as things progress.
