61st post - Rohan Guard!



Royal Guard of Rohan or the King's Guard of Rohan were a group of hand-picked men who guarded the King and Golden Hall of Meduseld in Edoras.

They were the most promising warriors of the kingdom. During times of peace, they served primarily in Edoras guarding the doors to the Golden Hall.




*************************************************************


In this miniature the spear got broken leaving me desolated. After trying to glue it back for 3 days unsuccessfully, i decided to make a little different approach.
I think this is my first conversion (really small) ever xD

I decided to glue a spare Numenorean sword and then glue the spear in the base.

I hope you guys like it:








And this were the paints used:





And now, the finished Rohan Guard:

      Yep, I still am quite annoyed about the spear, but now I think of it more as a unique piece, and I'm very happy with it :)

      At first I was feeling really bad for the spear, but I think that in the end it turned out very pleasing to me.
