I was after something quick and easy to paint as I try and get back into painting more regularly this year this year, so after a look through my huge to paint stack I settled on the Army of the Dead as I have all the miniatures and they looked easy enough.
I was never keen on the way GW painted theirs thinking they looked much too grey and stone like, after I checked the film they looked much greener so I went with that colour scheme.

As part of my attempt of clearing my painting desk I’ve finished the 6 Saruman figures that had been sat there for a few years since I had the brainwave or painting all the Maia for The Lord of the Rings, I managed Radagast the Brown and Sauron before getting bored of the idea.
It’s actually the second time I’ve painted these as the first time the varnish went cloudy which is infuriating but seems to happen to everyone at some point.
The painting guide is below as usual –
I’ve been a bit busy this month doing the boring aspects of modelling (paint stripping, flash removal, undercoating) to get much painting done but I did manage to paint the four Lord of the Rings Arwen miniatures.
I’m pretty pleased with the result and am considering using a similar scheme for my Warhammer 3rd edition Dark Elves, a painting guide is below –
