120 - Glóin! (tutorial)
Mae Govannen, mellon nín!
In this post I'll make a tutorial on how to paint Glóin, another dwarf from Thorin Oakenshield's Company (as my previous mini, Óin), a miniature from the Escape from Goblin Town starter box (Games Workshop).
Anyway, let us get to the lore!!!
Who is Glóin?
|Assembled and unprimed miniature of Glóin, the dwarf.|
He fought in the Battle of Azanulbizar and was a companion of both King Thrain II, and his son, Thorin Oakenshield.
With Thorin and Company he went on the Quest of Erebor which resulted in the death of Smaug the Dragon, and the re-establishment of the Dwarf-kingdom under the Mountain. In that kingdom he became a wealthy and important lord.
In the year 3018, he travelled with his son to Rivendell. His son, Gimli, was then chosen as one of the Fellowship of the Ring, and Glóin returned to Erebor.
During the War of the Ring, he fought in the defence of Erebor.
He died in the year 15 of the Fourth Age."

I. Normal basecoat with thinned paint.
II. Shades for all the recesses.
III. Highlights that aim the cleaning of the previous step.
IV. Final highlights focused on the edges and prominent lighted spots.
|XVII. For the final step, just be sure to use a basecoat (brown or silver) before painting the golden parts.|
|For the branch of his base I used a white lichen.|
And that's all for now my friends!
The next tutorials will be focused on Fili and Kili!
I really hope you find this tutorial useful!
Until next time! Keep on Painting and Wargaming!
