LoTR : do you want to play ?

Posted by SamSagace on 27 May 2020, 07:52

Hi !
some times ago, I've started to paint some 1/72 figures for a small LoTR range.
I've used mainly Caesar Adventurers, WoTR figures and also some other manufacturers, plus I've done some minor conversions.
I've shown before here the W.I.P. of this little project.... and it's finished !
I've got the idea to propose a "game" :
All the figures in the pictures below, have a number.
You just have to try to give the name of the characters and number.
If you recognize them : I win !!!!! :-D

(you can see more photos on my blog, they could be useful for playing .... )

Let's go !

1. Sam Gamgee. 3. Frodo. 4. Merry or Pippin. 2. might be the other one but he looks bigger than Sam.

5. Arwen. 6. Galladriel. 7. I couldn't work out who this woman was then I realised it must be Elrond. :oops: 8. Saruman the white. 9. Gandalf the Grey.

10. is usually Aragorn but I think I prefer 11. 13. Gimli. 14. Legolas.

15. looks like a Boromir to me. 18. what's her name ? Eowin ?.

19. a dark Rider, Witch King, Nazgul, thingy. 20. I can't remember the name of Sam's pony. 22. Somehow reminds me of David Wenham so, Faramir.

I forgot to mention, the figures all look terrific!

The Nazgul model is nicely sinister, where's he from?

5 - Galadriel
6 - Arwen
7 - Elrond
8 - Saruman
9 - Gandalf

16 - Faramir
17 - Haldir

1- many thanks at all of you !
2- Graeme : special thanks for your first trial : you made my day ! :xd:

For the replies , I will take the propositions of Bessiere ...but Graeme find a lot of them finally ! :-D
Bessiere wrote:First off they're all nicely painted. I'll give it a go. Guessing figures from the Hobbit are also here?: not but it's a good idea !
1 - Samwise
2 - Frodo : Merry (in "Rohan" gear)
3- Pippin : Frodo (he has the right hand at his neck ... :mrgreen: )
4 - Merry : Pippin (in Gondor gear)
5 - Galadriel : Arwen like Graeme wrote
6 - Arwen : Galadriel
(I didn't throught at your proposition, Bessiere but it's a good one )
7 - Elrond
8 - Saruman : Gandalf the White, but the hat is not a good option, I can't remove it :oops: and I have another figure for Saruman (see bellow)
9 - Gandalf The Grey
10 - Isildur : excellent idea ! In my idea, it was Aragorn in armour
11 - Aragorn : I will say "Strider" (in the first part of the LoTR
12 - Thorin : Why not ?? :thumbup:
13 - Gimli : in fact, 12 and 13 were 2 options for Gimli but I've begun with 12 and change for 13. The cloak and the beard look more "accurate"
14 - Legolas :
15 - Boromir ??? I don't know .... in fact I've no idea for this one. It could be fine for a Rohan Warrior but the shield is not round (so I've painted a the white tree of Gondor but the picture don't show it well enough ... :drool: )
16 - Faramir : Boromir , I added a horn on his side ( picture :eh: )
17 - Haldir : excellent idea ! the ears don't fit well for an Elf but no matter!
18 - Eowyn :
19 - Dark rider
20 - Bill
21 - Bard the archer : excellent if I include The Hobbit, I was thinking at Faramir (as captain of the Rangers of Ithilien )
22 - Gotme the Unknown archer : one of the Faramir's Ranger

... and for finishing, your questions :

CASTING and MAKING-UP !

For the 4 Hobbits, I've no choice, they are the WoTR game ones (I've just separated Sam and Frodo who were on the same base)
5 Caesar Undeads (!)
8 10 11 16 17 21: Caesar Adventurers
18 : conversion of a the same set (just hide a little her nude legs and top with paper and white glue, added a shield and a sword )
12 & 13 : Caesar Dwarves
6 14 & 22 : Caesar Elves
7 : conversion with a Strelets roman senate + Caesar Elf head + paper cloak on back
9 15 : WoTR

19: Valdemar VA119 "Lone Rider"
( the painted one on the web-shop is an old painting of me ... :mrgreen: or :eh: )
20-Bill the Pony is a creation of Alex ! :P

The WoTR figures are extremely rare (and expensive! ) and only the "special" figures are really interesting....

I've painted some time ago two other figures of this set :
Saruman and Galadriel with the Mirror :

To be fair I thought #2 had to be Frodo with his Mithril shirt. Pippin and Merry I continually mix up (they were cousins right?). You should have said there could be multiple figures for each as I did think both wizards were Gandalf but figured you would only have 1.

A great selection of painted figures. :thumbup: Lovely Painting!
Perhaps a story is up and coming all about the adventures of Samwise ? BB

I skipped all the answers, so I did not cheat.

1. Samwise Gamgee. Working class sensibility, large pack full of his master's favorite items. Pleasant but not beautiful face.
2. Meriadoc Brandybuck--he stayed with the riders of Rohan after Gandalf came back. And they gave him suitable armor and a small shield.
3. Frodo Baggins. Elven Cloak for concealment? Check. Mithril chainmail shirt peeking out in spots? Check. Air of determination to survive against all odds? CHECK.
4. Peregrine Took. He was issued the livery of the Gondor when he was impressed into the service of Denethor. Silver tree on a black field.

Just wish Merry and Pippin were a bit taller.

6. Galadriel

7. Celeborn

8. Gandalf the White

9. Gandalf the Grey

15. Boromir. Just looks like a self-important ass. And he's big. Livery of the Gondor. Headed for sweet redemption.
16. Aragorn
17. A Ranger
18. Eowyn

5 is supposed to be Arwen but I'm not sure of my choice
7-Elrond but it could be Celeborn !
8 & 9 : good (except the fact that Gandalf the White don't have a hat ... (a small conversion could have be done, a little bit difficult for me ! )

19- yes or simply a Witchwraith ?
20- :-D the pony is Bill ! Strider is Aragorn !
22- :-D ( Faramir as a ranger of Ithililen
23- it could be an elf but in my mind, it's a ranger again ( Didn't paint elves except Legolas)

Many thanks for your ideas and propositions !
It's interesting to see the different interpretations of figures !
Good to know if you're wrong or not ! :joker:

I just looked at Frodo again. He has his right hand up near his chest. Those of us who have read the books know he often reached into his cloak to touch the One Ring, suspended from a chain and hanging there. Nice touch!
