[] Thumbs up to your Glorfindel, wonderful job!

IMO - I like when most of the details are straight out of the book! (As much as possible)!

But I put no brake on your crafty hands!

Perhaps a pic would help us decide, Carnelamoth

Edit: Well, actually, that doens't make a whole lot of sense if you're trying to decide how to paint it in the first place. Never mind.

Well, i've just done some touch-up work on my Captain of the White Tower and the accompanying standard bearer. They look quite good, but faces still baffle me.

I'm still not sure if I want to get into Warhammer. It looks and sounds intriguing (especially the Bretonnians), but I don't really know much about how the game itself works. Anyone want to enlighten me? []

My pleasure, Éomer!

Warhammer (also the LOTR and Warhammer 40,000) is a strategy battle game using miniatures and their stats to fight amongst themselves. You generally have two armies (but you can have more) per battle. Each model has its own point value and is organized into a unit. A normal guy would probably be about 10 points and an army generally is 2000 points.
In the game, models move in inches (but they also have a cm conversion) and take and inflict wounds based on the roll of a die. What they role on the die may depend on the WS (weapon skill) which may make the role to wound on a 4 or higher. There are many factors in the game like psychology, magic, more stats (leadership, initiative, strength, toughness, movement, and ballistic skill), and many more.

On the other hand, you could just collect and paint the models, which many people do. It is a pretty expensive hobby, but it's really fun. You also would have to find other players in your area or have one of your friends start with you.

For more information, you can visit:

Wow... I sound like I work there or something... []

Hope that helped! []

For your colour scheme Carnelamoth: I would have used light brown for your little steed! Nice with red and grey instead of white maybe...

Thanks Carnelamoth, that explains it all pretty well. I don't really have any friends around here who might be into it, but my local gaming store has a ton of Warhammer-playing customers (as well as employees) and thus a ton of Warhammer supplies (half their store is nothing but Warhammer and Warhammer-related games [] ). Maybe I'll stop by there on one night they're playing and see how it's done.

However, I am terrible when it comes to painting of any kind. So I don't know how I'd do in that area... []

I'm having to space out my purchases quite a bit due to budgetary contraints-Paint supply is where the real cost is.

Actually, you can get pretty good quality paints (acrylic) at most art stores in small plastic tubes. They usually have 2-3 times more paint than the Games-Workshop paints at 200% lower price. Same for brushes.

I play Wood Elves for Warhammer and Chaos space marines for 40k. Many of my models are not painted nearly as wel as carnelamoth but I have a lot of them. I was also wondering what does somebody think is a good color scheme for wood elves. I can't seem to find the right one.

I've got a few of friends that play wood elves, and the color scheme I'd go with (if I had wood elves) would be primarily green, black, and brown. You could, however, try a brown-grey with black like the wood elves in LOTR movie. Wood elves are pretty limited to color schemes, when you note all the leaf patterns. One more color scheme could be autumn colors like red, brown, yellow-gold, and orange. I'm just a little bit objective to yellow, seeing as it is very bright and not ideal for camouflage.

Mmmm. Goodness.

Games Workshop is doing a good job of releasing stuff that wasn't in the movie, so we have to give them credit.

(double-post, sorry) Wow, it has been a long time since I last posted here...

Storm of Chaos (world-wide Warhammer campaign) has begun (I think...)!

The chaotic forces of Archaon attack the Empire in the Old World! Armies flock to the banners on both sides. Whose side are you on?

(I play the High Elf Sea Patrol) You can download the rules for your armies for free at www.stormofchaos.com.

In LOTR, the Mumakil and haradrim (including assassins and cavalry) are coming out. And also...the DUNEDAIN RANGERS!!!!! Look at www.gamesworkshop.com on the LOTR sneak previews! []
