This will be the last post for a while of my son's LotR collection. The Painting Challenge has to take precedence, and that is where I will have to focus my attention.
The scenes involving the Rohirrim in the LotR films are really my favourite. Who can forget Aragorn's, Legolas and Gimli's initial meeting with Éomer when they are pursuing the Uruk-hai. Or Théoden's speech where he exhorts his riders to Rack and Ruin to ride out among the Uruk hoards in the siege of Helm's Deep. Equally inspiring is their charge to relieve the Siege of Minas Tirith.
Well Simon only painted a small number of Riders and Théoden. These are very nice figures and are all hard plastic aside from the mounted Théoden.
I thought he did a pretty nice job on these, maybe Théoden could do with a dark wash but overall very nice. I redid the bases and touched up the shields with some white.
