Well, although I didn't spend lots of time on him today, it was all nice finishing touch type bits, so that was fun =)
He's complete now. I know I could probably do more, but staying with my philosophy of only using paint from the pot etc, he's pretty much finished.
I'll probably do a few touch-ups when I get a base for him (just ordered one today from GW, so won't be long). Also ordered some bases for my two new eagles =)
Anyhow, I'll try to take him over to my Brother's this week for photos on a proper board.
Here he is in all his angry furiousness. Again, the photo is taken close to a big white bulb, so it's way more washed out than it should be. Hopefully the photos on the battle board will be better!
Close-up. In case you'd been wondering about the odd colours, from the get-go I'd decided I wanted to do a little freehand on him. Since he's got the same defence as a normal cave-troll I figured the leather patches couldn't be very effective as armour. So instead he's stitched in some mementos of previous encounters. On this side you can see a red eye in the style of a Harad army (I'm sure he'll face them at some stage hehe) and a bit of banner from one of the Rohan's horselords.
Totally washed out by the light is one of the white tree emblems you see on Minas Tirith troops.
And a cropped version of the top photo, again, pretend it's not quite so washed out and remember that even from a short distance the colours blend together better!
So there you go, that'll be it for now, I'll update in a few days or a week or whenever I get the base in the mail, glued and painted =)
Now I just need some more wargs and to paint my spider to get a 700 point army of all monsters - muhahahaha!
