The Mumakil come out in the summer in Siege of Gondor with a lot of other stuff like engineer trolls, Guard of the Citadel, Gondorian Catapults, etc.
On another subject, I was re-arranging the sword on my King Aragorn model, and I lost it. I was thinking about buying another one and making it into Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth. However, I don't know what exactly he looks like. Any URLs could help...

Carnelamoth, just make him look like in the way you want, I would use a figure with a horse, for example, and with a brilliant armor, but it's up to you!, that's the very best part of this!

For some new pics, go here: http://www.fun4u-store.de/spielwarenmesse04.php

I'ts a German site, but you can tell what the models are. There's new 40k stuff there and there used to be Warhammer previews which were taken down from the site at the wishes of Games Workshop.

BTW, I'm going to enter a Aragorn painting competition at Games Workshop tomorrow [] I've got a good chance at winning too...

I don't think very highly of my painting ablities as yet, so I would never show my face around a competition []

They changed the competition to "Mounted Hero" instead of "Aragorn," so I brought my (very well painted, I don't mean to brag) Glorfindel. I lost to some middle aged Korean guy whose Aragorn in my opinion, was NOTHING compared to my Glorfindel. This has been like, the third time I lost a painting competition when I should have won.

Two weeks earlier, I brought in a Prince Tyrion (a High Elf character in Warhammer) for their mounted Warhammer hero competition three hours late (the management changed earlier that week and I had no idea about the schedule change) and they said I would have won. The irony is that the person that did win painted a Dark Elf. I am seriously getting fed up with them... []

BTW, I might post some pics later if I feel so inclined...

I'm painting up a Captain of Minas Tirith and the accompanying standard bearer at the moment, but no word yet on how either will turn out. THey're the first metal models i've painted, since all i've done before this is my first batch of 36 Warriors of Minas Tirith. Which weren't so bad, except the ones my little brother painted...

Heh heh...thanks...heh heh *blushes* I've only been painting for two years... []

I guess all that you have to do to paint well is spend time and don't settle for less.

What i'm impressed with is all the shading on Glorfindel's horse-that must've taken time!

P.S.-do you use inks? I haven't gotten into using those yet.

P.S.S-I can't do highlights either. Will try on next model...

I use inks, as they are ver helpful, but now no as often. Inks aren't very good if you're painting white stuff, but it works very well on metals and jems. The "judges" at the competition said the horse was too unrealistic and drybrushed. I, personally, think horses should look grainy (lots of tiny hairs). I guess they only like plain boring stuff...

Here's a pic of Glorfindel's left:

I was just reading an online article about how to paint Warriors of Minas Tirith. It was (seemingly) simple enough, and it looked great, but it used such a wide range of paints of materials that it'd break the bank just trying to get all the stuff needed.

The only colors I would need to paint a warrior of Minas Tirith would be black, white, gold, silver, and a dark and light flesh tone. You can afford six paints, right?

Well, I use black, chainmail, dwarf flesh, white, gold, and brown to paint Warriors of MT. This guy was using way more than six paints. They don't look like perfect works of art when they're done the way I have been painting them, but they still look perfectly serviceable.

If that horse doesn't look realistic then I am the mother of the Pope! It isn't perfect but it is more realistic than any horse I have ever painted! I think those judges must have something against you!

Keep up the good paint work []

(sorry for double-posting) I've made a new mounted High Elf Lord (for Warahammer), and I would like to know what any of you think of the following color schemes:

a.Mainly white with gold and silver for the "heavenly" look

b.Red (armor), white (robes), and gold (scale mail armor) for army coherence

Also, what color should I paint the horse?
