    I have a few busts and have looked at all of them so far. And like I said i never got pictures or heard a mention of it anywhere. At least not from an official source.

    But he does look rather cool...

    someone at sideshow told me they were done making helmets and i'm ticked off....

    i still want them to make helms for: Eomer, Eowyn, Pippin, Merry, Gondorian, Faramir

    if they dont make it then what was the point of starting a collection of them....im so upset right now, i hope its not true

    I just recieved my King Theoden figure, and the gold detailing on the armor doesn't match up with the pictures on the box or on the website...has anyone tried to do touch-up work on thier statues? What type of paint would be needed? Overall, it isn't a huge deal to me, as his armor looks more battle worn with less gold details...but I may want to do this at some point...

    What sort of price would you be looking for? I wouldn't mind an original Balrog in the ol' collection.

    Re: Gold paint on statues - I got the Galadhrim archer and noticed the same lack of gold paint on the armour, shortly after the Elrond figure arrived with lovely gold shiny armour. Now the only thing is I want to display them together and though fine individually when seen together its hard not to notice.
    Well I do think the Sideshow stuff is fantastic and I have trhe new Balrog and Gandalf on Shadowfax on order. I too would just like to touch up the gold paint a little. Any ideas?

    there's a technique I use when I paint things, its called Drybrushing. Im sure most of you know what it is, but for those who dont its quite easy.

    Get a wide brush, as your doing a large pbject... Place the desired shade/colour of glod you wish to use on the brush and then on a paper towel or cardboard sheet wipe off all th excess. Do this until you think there cant possibly me anyamout of paint left on the bruch that could do anything. (ie just keep wiping it off on your blotting piece of cardboard) then carefully so you dont hit anything thats not supposed to be gold, wipe your brush in the motion opposite to that of the lames of the armor. What this will do is have only the rasied edges with get this paint leaving the rest the same colour or only slightly touched. Repeat the wipe over and over until you get the resired look.

    Id recomend practing on something else first until you get it right, and use a water base paint if possible as if you mess up or dont like your reslust you can clean it off fairly easily.




    Hopefully this helps.

    I don't have much LOTR stuff, since I have a lot of other interests, but I do have a lot of LOTR Warhammer, With a lot I really mean A LOT, and some books and posters. And ofcourse very very very much resources, online and offline, and a lot of pictures. :)
