Mae govannen, mellon nín! Another post about how to paint a miniature dwarf from Thorin's Company, and this time it's Bifur! Funny thing about this character is that, for Peter Jackson's film adaptation, they used his name as a short for "bifurcation", hence the axe carved in his head (much like Óin being deaf). About the miniature, it was a very enjoyable painting session. I decided not to paint the eyes (as they're pretty much shut), tried for the very first time the zenital priming, and finally, overall, I'm really happy with how his beard turned out! Now, as usual, let us get to the lore... Assembled and unprimed miniature of Bifur. Who is Bifur? " Dwarf of Thorin and Company. Bifur went on the Quest for Erebor which, in 2941 of the Third Age, resulted in the death of Smaug the Dragon and the re-establishment of the Dwarf-kingdom under the Mountain. He survived the Battle of Five Armies, thereafter he settled in Erebor

Mae govannen, mellon nín! Another post about how to paint a miniature dwarf from Thorin's Company, and this time it's Kíli! Despite the absence of a beard, this miniature provided me a very joyful painting session, on which I particularly enjoyed playing with the different shades of blue and grey. Assembled and unprimed miniature of Kíli. Who is Kíli? " Dwarf of Thorin and Company. Kíli embarked on the Quest of Lonely Mountain in 3019 of the Third Age, which resulted in the death of Smaug the Dragon and the re-establishment of the Dwarf-kingdom under the Mountain. As the son of Thorin's sister, Dís, Kíli was fiercely loyal to his uncle. Both Kíli and his brother Fíli were killed in the Battle of Five Armies while defending Thorin.
