Just a quick update. Gandalf is pretty much finished - I've tidied up that scary eye since this was taken - and I'm rather happy with how he came out.
The cave troll is almost done. My only regret with this chap is that I didn't tidy up the join lines on the hammer but he's certainly a decent tabletop standard.
And I've started work on Balin's Tmb. The tricky thing here is how do you paint White Marble? Here you can see where I've drybrushed with a large brush to work some texture into the white.
Shading and detailing to do this week. As always, decent photographs at the weekend when I have some light.
I also think that the finished Gandalf shots might be the post that cracks 10k views which would be nice.
