My other hobbies on and off the internet to do with Lord of the Rings

LEGO Digital Designer, where I design modules of Middle-earth. Currently I have a few Rivendell things and Minas Tirith walls with attachments. As you may know LEGO will be producing Lord of the Rings sets and I will be buying Helms Deep, can't wait.
Note: to bad I cant export the LXF files to BFME. I use Worldbuilder models as reference to the LEGO ones.

I bought a few Games Workshop miniatures. 'Converted' Numenorean Warriors into my own Soldiers of Minas Ithil, and I've also painted Elendil to match the army renaming my miniature to Earnur. But my best work is the Guard of the Fountain Court of the Shining City, Minas Ithil.

I used to collect LotR warhammer like you, but then I took an arrow in the knee.

It's been a few years since the last buy, so there's a ton of new stuff that's come out after I was collecting.

Oh Skyrim....

I have a lot more than just this but posting it would take ages and getting pics takes too much time. Dúnedain (Surprise, Surprise... :thumbsupxd: ) Gondor and Mordor are my Main Armies but i have a collection of every Race.

Awesome stuff there Dunedain Ranger76!

I like especially your Evendim Dunedain Rangers, with the blue on the cloaks, I might use something like that on my Aragorn.

But what I find of most interest is the similar dark theme of your miniatures and your Battle for Middle Earth skins.

Thanks!

Yes I know, a lot of my works are pretty dark. The reason being is that I'm tired of seeing bright and shiny Fantasy stuff that some people make Lord of the Rings. But I mean no offense to those people since a lot of people's work is fantastic, but for me, Lord of the Rings felt darker than other fantasies. With the Dúnedain Rangers, I was able to test different paint styles and hues of Middle Earth since the Dúnedain patrolled all over Eriador, and made me able to paint different colors based on the region where they are based (The Shire, Fornost, Amon Sul, ect.) Using imagery from the movies, Games Workshop, and Lord of the Rings Online, I was able to differentiate the Rangers between their separate companies.

Now that was a mouthful. :facepalm:

I still got a load of other stuff that needs pictures taken along with much of what you've seen is out of date. (not to mention the new stuff being released that brought me back into the hobby)

Ah, how I loved to sometimes go a bit off the supposedly "correct" paint job... Or even the minor modeling stuff I did. Loved it!
I used to pick out the most awesome guy in a bunch, and paint his cape or cloak (or make one and then paint it) a different colour (mainly red) to make him a captain. So little work, but looked so much cooler all of a sudden!

Rohan Soldiers got a worse treatment though, barely have any left.. Was meddeling around with chopping their hands\arms off and exchanging them around, just to make Rohan as random as in the movies! And them models are among the coolest one by default! So that's sad.. In it's own way :p Still, got a badass Rohan Captain, with a red cape, a bow and quiver on his back, and sword and shield in his hands!

Any real make-over wasn't really done, only the Haldir's Elves got silver armour once, instead of golden. Looked pretty neat

I would love to experiment with the Morgul Knights and make them 'good' so they look neither good or evil but the grey inbetween.

As I have made my Soldiers of Minas Ithil slightly evil by enclosing their helmets and the Fountain Guard gets a Witch-king flail without the spikes. But also I modelled a Dark Dunedain Death-mask for Aragorn, like the Angmar Rangers in RotWK.

But I think I might wait until The Hobbit miniatures are out, the new ones now are okay but I think I might pass on the Baby Balrog, ... Oh no wait...

Same model as up the top but I built it out of real LEGO. Do you really think so?

Nice! I took a particular interest in the LotR 'Warhammer' bits here, having a massive Harad army myself. Not collecting LotR any more, changed to Tyranids, but I still love having a look at the odd paintjob/conversion.

And, that Lego helms deep film - awesome.

I love the Haradrim forces (well, the ones that are clearly inspired by the movies), but quite before they were really produced. I still use pictures of them as inspiration when making my haradrim forces in T4A :)

Pretty good build of Helm's Deep based from the official LEGO Helm's Deep and wall sets.
