"Wraiths! Wraiths on wings!"

You may or may not recall that a year or so again I was lucky enough to get a ringwraith on fellbeast as fathers day present. I was very pleased with it and attacked it with my airbrush immediately.

As it happens these Christmas holidays have been spent watching the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies on a loop with my sons and I realised something:

I had painted the Fellbeast the wrong colour!

For some reason I had got it into my head the Fellbeast was grey when it was obviously from watching the film that it was actually blue. So, seeing as I had the airbrush out for something else in any case, I decided to get stuck in.

Quite a change from the original colour:

Here it is, scouring the landscape below for pesky hobbits: 

And here he is facing my brand new Gandalf the White

I think you can agree, this looks much more like it!
