He was as noble and fair as an elf-lord, as strong as a warrior, as wise as a wizard, as venerable as a king of dwarves, and as kind as summer." Elrond seemed ageless, resembling neither old nor young.
Frodo saw her whom few mortals had yet seen; Arwen, daughter of Elrond, in whom it was said that the likeness of Lúthien had come on earth again; and she was called Undómiel, for she was the Evenstar of her people.
Just a quick hobby update today! I'm working my way through some 3D printed rocks just to have some fun, easy scatter terrain. I found these on Thingiverse for free and they're just perfect for wargaming. To paint them I sprayed cheapo Grey. Then I randomly washed a few spots with GW washes- yellow, green, brown, and a spot of red here and there. Next came a heavy light grey drybrush over that followed by another white drybrush. Then I just added some static grass and tufts and... done.
Andrew and I played an awesome 600 point game, and for the first time tried the "Heirloom of Ages Past" mission.

Here's a fun 3d print project I did recently. These are free files on Thingiverse. Primed in Grey Seer. The trunks are Wyldwood Contrast with the light vine coverage Aggaros Dunes Contrast. The blue inlay (which was mostly painted by my wonderful girlfriend!) is Frostheart Contrast. There are some small vines creeping up here and there that I'd like to sit down and paint green which I think would add a nice pop of color, but painting terrain is such a drag. The leaves are from a cheap leaf holepunch on Amazon and some construction paper adhered with white glue.
This is it. Just opening up the new blog with a few pictures of the Dark Lord himself! The base is 3d printed, but the model is just the standard GW "fine" cast resin miniature. Really enjoyed painting him up mostly because it came together so quickly! Low effort but looks awesome... my favorite.
