80th post - Blog of the month, April!



Hello guys :)
Well, it's been a while since my last post (few weeks I think).
Now I'm back, and what better than the Blog of the Month??

This month I'll do a different approach. As you know, I usually post Lotr/hobbit themed blogs, but being most of my blogspot followers hobbyists from many diverse backgrounds, I've decided to post here all those blogs that I enjoy and follow with interest.

Lets begin then:





And there they are.
I would like to apologise for the lack of information about this blogs on my post, but one thing I can guarantee you: All of them are definitely worth following.
Those are some of my favourite non Lotr/hobbit hobby blogs.

So go ahead and give them a look :)

As always, happy hobbying!

79th post - Éowyn, Shieldmaiden of Rohan!



Hey friends :)

Welcome to another post.
This time I present to you Éowyn, Shieldmaiden of Rohan!

Éowyn was Éomer's sister and Théoden's niece (being raised by him in Meduseld).
Important woman she was, with a very insurgent spirit. She rode in disguise to the battle of Pelennor Fields (Minas Tirith) under the name of Dernhelm and took Merry with her.
In that same battle, Éowyn killed the Witch-King!!! That's how important she was!
In the end of the War of the Ring, she married Faramir (Boromir's brother).

This one is another lovely model, very fun to paint.
I also did a speedpainting video for this miniature, which you'll find in the end of the post :)












I really like the results that I've achieved here :)

Now, if you are one of those who have patience, I'll let here the two videos of the painting progress for this model.
If you appreciate it, please like and subscribe my channel :D

Thanks in advance.








And that's it friends.
I hope you like this one as much as I do :D

Regards, and as always, happy hobbying :)

78th post - Gamling!



Hey guys :D

This time I present Gamling to you.
Gamling was an old commanding man of Helms Deep.
He was the leader of the watchers of that fortress and a brave fighter in the times of the siege of the Uruk-hai's.

In the films though, Gamling is the leader of the personal guard of King Théoden.
Brave man he is!!!!!

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

This is another GW's great model! Amazing pose and sculpt.
For Gamling I've decided to record all the progress of the painting and then post it in Youtube. So, this time, I'll not post any photo of the paints that I've used, but the videos instead (I believe it is a good change) :D

Hope you guys like it :)




















And now the videos:






And here it is :D
I'd like to ask you friends, to rate this post (above the comments: reactions) as it helps me improve my work... and please, be honest (for good and bad) :D

Wish you all a very good weekend and happy hobbying mates

77th post - Men of Rohan!



Hey guys
Here we are for another one of those numbers that I plan to paint in the future.
This time, number 50: Warriors of Rohan (who were already painted in my post nr 10).

I promise I'll be painting them in the future, with lots of describing texts and ideas on how to paint them.

Regards, and happy hobbying!

76th post - Building Battle Showcase!

So, when I posted my Gondorian building, I was asked by Alejandro from Aleminis if I could take some pics of a battle occurring with that scenario, which I did... :D

Those mounted warriors of Minas Tirith you see are my old ones (which I'm planning to repaint in the future), maybe from 2004...

I'm aware that the background isn't the best, but well...
