Nerds in Winter

The great project of our time. In anticipation of the Second Edition War of The Ring, I began to paint the first-edition figures, starting with the Haradrim regulars.

Assemble your posse, Charlie Murphy. The colors (seven plus three washes) are a little ambitious, I admit. These pics are after about a full day's work. I painted the bases (not pictured) a mix of brown and black washes over a tan basecoat to indicate Shadow-alignment (also matching the map's color for Mordor lands).

Primed and  ready to go. You can see a little bit of the red plastic coming through. I'm not sure what scale these are in, other than they're real small -- about half the size of D&D 28mm figures. The spot brush was in full effect. For reference, the squares on the craft mat are 1-inch.
