Colour wise I used a reference shot from the film:
Base colours were easy to mix using, oddly enough, a very WW2 palette; olive drab, feldgrey and khaki were the main shades.
Hair was mixed from yellow and bone, highlighting up to yellow. I felt that was more fitting than the almost white of the films at 28mm scale.
The final touch was stringing the bow. Not something I've ever done before but ridiculously easy after rigging the Napoleonic ships. This is certainly something I'll start doing with all archers from now on.
And finally just the base. I might add some leaves when I get some yellow rather than brown ones made.
I don't really feel the urge to paint the hobbits; so I might get around to Boromir and Gimli to complete my truncated Fellowship.
What I really want to do is a Nazgul on Fellbeast but I can't really justify the cost. If I see a cheap one, though...
Edited to cite the correct Inkling! In the first version I'd wrongly attributed it to Lewis.
