“One ring to rule them all. One ring find them. One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them”
Hands up who likes Lord of the Rings? *raises hand* So I’d tried to avoid the games for years because I already had plenty of 40k and other games to work on, and couldn’t face more undercoated miniatures goading me from their storage. In September I finally gave in and picked up Pelenor Fields and since then a few other little bits. Sauron (pronounced Saw-ron in the old 1978 cartoon I grew up with and Sow-ron in the films) was an ebay purchase who’s face was heavily caked in Superglue (to the point where I couldn’t see any features). I managed to get the worst of it off, but some was pretty stubborn – this is why his face looks like he’s been beaten with a shovel.
When you stand him next to the normal folk he’s huge, and I thought it fitting to paint him up as the first LotR miniature to appear on the channel.
It’s a great miniature, weighs a ton and uses a really small palette to paint. A list of paints can be found below the video.
