Thanks guys! Getting there slowly with the PC and Dwalin!

Thank you Peter! Things are a bit basic and rough in some cases but it all takes time to build a foundation for the details. Been hampered by loosing all my reference pics so been trawling through hundreds of pictures to save for Dwalin alone!

Everything's a bit rough as I just said so don't judge it as finished at all, taking my time as stuff needs to cure and dry while I have to attend to other things related and not related to these projects..

Cheers! Concentrating on the details now like the rivets on his boots, belt buckle etc.. Changed out his left hand again as the colour didn't quite match the right one and more importantly the ink for the tattoos smudged when I applied matte clear. I also changed out one of the axe handles to make them a matching pair since I knew it would bug me otherwise Wink . Bits and bobs, it just takes time redoing stuff so I'm happy with it.

The lighter hand on the right (his left hand) is the one that later smudges.

Still messing with the PC, turns out Shareit doesn't work with Win10 so had to remove it and download/install set up etc.. Roamit instead for all my devices so I could transfer reference pics to this PC, should have just used the imgur app now I think of it but wanted them all in the same folder at least on one device!
Ink washed the hands and arms so they blend better and show up the wrinkles and battle scars as well as muting the tattoos, does look better in hand than in the pics. Also added rolled up sleeves to be more costume accurate, done some initial paint on the boots and filed down the axe heads to match. Got some sculpting to do next, his big war hammer and the knuckle duster plate parts too.

Excellent idea and thank you! I'd never have the patience with a CAD program to do that, something always goes wrong 100x ! Crying or Very sad I just snap off pics and keep building, I do bother to choose the ones in focus most of the time though! Laughing It's a good way of isolating the work though for comparisons to TRT so I might use some black card in future now and again like I used to in my little bedsit years ago.

Made a scabbard for his dagger from an old Sting one cut down and glued back together. Also started his war hammer, it's amazing how long it can take to get a piece of milliput symmetrical in all directions when you need geometric shapes...I must have spent hours just squishing it back and forth while using tools to flatten edges...quite hypnotising at times!Shocked Got a good base hammer head now though to build on..

Done all the sculpting on the hammer, next will be sanding/filing etc.. especially on the the 'neck', modded the axes too. Sculpted the knuckle duster 'metal' parts (I couldn't think of any easier way for those Wink ) and have all the accoutrements ready to build them. Also added detail straps and buckles to his leather 'webbing'(?) or weight lifting harness?

Very nice warrior dwarf. Love the details. I wonder if a thin semi-translucent layer of paint won't dull the tatoos a bit to make them more realistic.

Good idea although they do look much better in hand no pun intended, the sepia ink helped a lot. Might add some matte clear over the sepia. Need to file and sand all the weapons now, milliput really gums up files! So much so I have to use paint stripper on them afterwards..

Dwalin's knuckle dusters and weapons are all done. I need to make the backpack carrying loops for the axes, give him real hair, mount the knife scabbard and do some little paint details like the studs on his boots etc.. then on to the next lone.

Done plenty more paint, redid all the weapons, added studs and some rather messed up runes (I need to invest in an engraving machine) but thought sod it and left them as they are screen accurate just a bit all over the place. Did ink washes in black and sepia, painted lots of silver, made the holsters for the axes, affixed the knife's scabbard, gave the hammer's handle a leather wrap and prepared the head for real hair. A metal version of Thorin's 'Goblin Cleaver' arrived and is just the right size!

Thank you very much Roger!

Just as well I went image searching for Balin as he's next, because I found a picture of Dwalin's back and he has much longer hair than I had thought! So I'll obviously keep that in mind laying his real hair, would have sucked to find out afterwards!!

My Custom 13 Dwarves & Bilbo From 'The Hobbit' Movie WIP. Bombur Weapons & Accessories. - Page 3 5Xyallx

I thought Balin might be simpler but no way, crazy complex patterns all over his clothing, the material itself is a pattern, then stitched into patterns, then complex embroidery is added.. affraid If you zoom in on that pic with the text from a book of behind the scenes, head the costume designer and creator says there was so much work in Balin's costume they had to outsource it even though they had their own little factory!

More like a nightmare.. I'm looking into gold pencils and pastels as markers are hopeless, they either bleed when working, don't work or just vomit their contents over everything! Even if I could find a decent gold paint brushing it onto a velvet material could be pretty messy for the clean geometric patterns needed.

Pretty much finished Dwalin now, just want to add some glossy clear to his eyes, lips and teeth, redo his earings paint and add light purple/pink to his scar tissue. I think I'll do 'finished threads' for them in pairs i.e. two Dwarves to a thread.

He does look really good.

How about splodging some marker ink onto a piece of card and applying it with either a very thin brush or a pin?

CHEERS!

Thanks Roger, tried that before without much success, the 'ink/paint' tends to dry super fast and you just end up with a gooey puddle and a ruined brush. Most of the metallic markers seem to be alcohol based even when they say they're acrylic.

Done all the little paint bits I wanted so he is officially finished now, I promise! Looking very outnumbered with the Wraith!!

Man, he turned out amazing. All the building that went into this figure... I wish I had that kind of ambition.
