From TeemuL: Uruk-Hais with Crossbows (15 points)

Hello everyone!


This is my third challenge and surprisingly I'm painting some LotR figures again. These are metal uruk-hais with crossbows, original GW/Citadel products from the age of the second movie.


I have theme - or at least an idea - for all my paintings this year: Odds and Ends. So practically I'm trying to clean my todo and project lists, painting those random figures I got from somewhere, don't really have use at the moment, but I don't like part with them and on the other hand "finishing" squads/groups/regiments/armies. Yes, nothing is never really finished in the miniature painting world, but let's say finished for now. For example, these uruk-hais with crossbows were the last unpainted uruk-hais with crossbows, so now I have finished them. Until I get more of them, of course. Idea is not to start anything new, just stick with the old things and random figures. So you won't be seeing any Napoleonics from me...

Yes, there are white hands - definitely from Isengard then.

The pictures are very dark, I just finished these (it's past 9pm in Finland and it is dark outside) and wanted to post them as soon as possible and this was the best light I could find. The paint job is quite simple, dark brown for the skin and weapon, lighter brown for the clothing and metal with black ink for the armor. The are not super neat, but good enough for the gaming table in a large group.

Next time more Uruk-Hais with proper light, I hope.

I gave them a little post-processing bump to help them out, Teemu, They look good and will be a welcome reinforcement to your collection. I like how the armour has been dirtied up and I also like your addition of The Hand of Sauron on their helmets. 

A fitting start to your climb on the roster. Welcome back!

  6. Nice start Teemu! Cleaning the project list of all the odds and ends is definitely a great feeling. Plus a good excuse to add more minis to the lead pile when older ones have gotten paint on them ;)

  14. Welcome back, Teemu! Nice work on the urks, they look good and grubby!
    Just be sure to add more to the mountain of neglect though, unpainted minis are the bulwark preventing the apocalypse! ;)
