This is a really terrific new online magazine - Wargames Painting and Modeling. I just download issue 1 and read through it. There are some of my favorite painters writing about how they do such amazing work. I can't wait for the next issue!
I have finally finished up the first 6 Warg Riders for Lord of the Rings. The are cool plastic models that go together very easily, and like most of the LoTR figures, they are a breeze to paint. Here are a few individual pictures.
Some don't like the body seam on the neck of the Warg. I don't have a major problem with it, the picture above is probably the most noticable of the bunch.
This is a unit of Iron Warriors that I painted for my friend Tom. Tom has been unnecessarily patient. I think I took on this painting commission more that 2 years ago. Granted, I have some really good reason for not getting around to finishing these, but still, I should be done by now.
These guys turned out better than I expected but they are still not very good. I have a very bad primer coat and I should have stripped them and tried again. At least I should have bought new ones and done them right. Tom likes them, but he is very nice and would never tell me they suck ;-)

Then there are the games that have been retired. Not all of these are bad. In fact some are really great. The reasons for retirement are varied.
