Not my personal scene, but extremely well executed Arthur. Nice to see you working, and posting here again.

Nice stuff all around. I especially like the two horses on the sloped base...nice sense of action.

I like what the elevated bases to the overall visual affect of the vignettes. Having a small scale subject is enhanced by the scale and size of the base.
Nicely done.

Hi Arthur,

Really nice work here, every one a gem.
all the figures look very well done and the goundwork really sets them off.
Hard to pick a favourate but I really like the Gandalf in his cart one.

All the best

Vic

PS, The LOTR figures I got from e-bay arrived safetly, just got to finish a few things and then get started. (If I can wait that long :-) )

Nice to see one of us doing these lovely cast pieces - I see so many with the 'Games Wksp" cloning and I like to see how other artists interprete them,

Wonderful vignettes Arthur. Very nice subjects and very well executed. I particularly like the warg attack scene.
I have often thought of buying this kind of figures, but they are so small. I'm not sure I can paint them.

Well done Arthur. These are great! Are you aware that Andrea also do some really good LOTR white metal figures?

Make that one horse and one "Warg".

I like that one very much also. Very nice base work for these Arthur. Of course good job on the figs as well.

Cheers,

Must have missed these earlier ones although I did enjoy viewing the latest batch of WWII pieces. Visually I like the first one with the elves although the last one really conveys the action. Arthur these little guys were very well done and with their mini bases a pleasure to view.
