A wee dio using figs from Gamesworkshop depicting the attack of the Wargs on the road to Helms deep,most of the paint used was Humbrol,with a bit of oil for the horses,the ground work was built up using air dried modelling clay amd stuff from Woodland scenics,the wooden base is the other half cheese board,(got a wee bit of stick over that one)






Cheers

Not to my personal taste, but very effective and well presented all the same. Nice one mate.

Hi Arthur,

Looks very nice sir,
Groundwork looks straight out of the film.
Figs have come out very nice too, must have taken a bit of time and patients.

I even spotted Gimli, my favourate character after Gollum.

All the best

Hello Arthur,

that little dio looks really nice and a little bit loud...seems as I hear the knights cry and the "beasts" roaring.

Good work !!!

Cheers,
Markus

Arthur:

Wow, very nice execution of the dio, the figs and the
terrain. Well done. Also, it is so nice to see something
that is a departure from WWII subject matter, such as
what José is doing with his French Villager dio from a
period around the 17th or 18th Century.

Bravo, and I'm sure the "client" will be very happy,

Arthur have actually stood in the place where that was filmed - around Queenstown New Zealand The Colours and grassy tuffts are very very close - well done
Also you did my fav of all time pieces from this range (as you know I actually work casually for GW in Australia- Probably the oldest casual on thier books)
I Love the Gimli/Legolas on horse- painted one for myself but never thought to do this with them tour Customer will be rapt
