111th post - Weekly update: Hobbit week, Goblintown and Théodred!

Mae Govannen!

First of all, we're in the end of the so called "hobbit week", which is symbolically marked by the birthday of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins (September 22nd), and I couldn't let the occasion pass without mentioning it on the blog. (P.s.: I've just realised that the "hobbit week" post is the same number of years that Bilbo Baggins is celebrating in the beginning of the book, i.e., 111)
As usual, I've started reading the Lord of the Rings by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien this week (I've done so every year since 2011/12, excluding 2017).






Now, Hobby related, this week wasn't the most productive, yet I've painted five more Goblintown orcs.
They're 18 per sprue, being 3 left from this first sprue and... well, 18 more from the next one.

Meanwhile, Théodred's mini needs to be finished (the last miniature from the 65 Battle Games in Middle-Earth issues collection), and that will be the main aim of next week's.





The already finished and varnished orcs.
The finished and unvarnished orcs (and Éomer in the back).
The last three already primed orcs from the first sprue and the next sprue of eighteen Goblintown'ers.
Also, the mess of the painting table...





Théodred and his horse, already primed black.
This model will be my main focus for the next week.


And here it is, a small update and a mention to the symbolic birthday 
of two of the most beloved Tolkien's characters.

Happy hobbying and wargaming!

Namárië.

    1. It is just the best! You can read it one hundred times and it'll always feel like you're still unravelling things from the plot ahah
      Thanks for the comment Ross.

      Cheers
