And yeah I feel you, last week I cut away a piece of my left middlefinger while cutting styrofoam.

When they are all finished, please make a very long detail showcase video using this song, send it to WETA and Peter Jackson and make them cry happy tears. Thx, bye! :p

Beautiful and very moving song! Well discovered, reminds me very much of the Irish band Clannad from Donegal who Enya used to be the lead singer for back in the day a long time ago. They even use the Irish bodhran in the song you found (a hand held drum hit with a double ended tapping stick).

Also from a film, 'Harry's Game' about the Northern Irish 'Troubles' back in the early 80's

I love that Clannad song; never realized Enya was their lead singer. Definitely a good mood match for your elven and dwarvish creations! Smile

A lot of their stuff is instrumental I think but then she is a musician not just a singer.

I'm sure I would remember it if I heard it.

I've been busy working on modding my Kriss Vector but still got some work done on Gloin, been watching 'Farscape' (again) and just realised how much Kar'Dargo looks like Gloin Laughing

LOL, I thought I'd explained it Wink . Well I do what I can with what I have untill I really need something like the stencil I just ordered, annoyingly it's coming from China as I couldn't find one locally on ebay but should help a lot with patterns like his gauntlets. I made that much latex Dwarf scale armour as Thorin will need most of it.

Cheers RS! The latex pattern method takes a couple of days as you have to wait while each coat dries before applying the next but you don't have to really do anything LOL.

Redoing his arms by thickening them up, reattaching the base shirt material and now building the bicep armour. The pattern scissors I have can't cut pleather annoyingly so I'm having to use PVA stiffened fibre card which I'll then paint and layer together.

Using foam to thicken the arms is genius, as it will not get in the way of articulation the way other materials would.

Jim Henson Studios is American and was in charge of all the creatures like the puppets, not sure if they were involved with the make up actor related designs so it could well have been someone who went on to work for Wetta Studios later.

Assembled and inked the upper bicep armour that seems to be a mix of leather and metal in the movie prop costume like Gimli's helmet neck guard.

Well I've finished fabricating it now, basically a lot of cutting and glueing then redoing it multiple times until I was happy with it. Needs to be touched up with sepia ink to cover glue etc.. and the silver plates need painting but seems to do the trick, not great for articulation but he's only got broad stumpy arms anyway.

That's a nice thing to say, thank you! Well they're making Thorin and he looks great but I'm still planning to make my own.

Primmered and ink washed the boots, also dulled the 'V' pattern a bit with ink while touching up the shoulder armour, been working on my Kriss Vector and bloody boiler most of the day.

Alex, the boots look really good. hope you don't mind me saying, for what it's worth, darkening the lower half of the paintwork on the foot, and dry brushing with light tan, would bring out that distinctive shape of the boot you've created considerably.
Used micro soft paint on pic below to show you what I mean,Great work though in any case.

Thanks Peter! Great idea! I was thinking of weathering them with some light coloured dust using a dry sponge method which should have a similar effect as you correctly pointed out the dark colour does hide the characteristic angular shapes of these Dwarven boots. Brain's not too good coming down with something and still haven't fixed the bloody boiler! Mad  I'm worried I blew up the very expensive PCB but it does have a fuse that has blown on the PCB so hopefully that saved it! Well that's what its there for!! So it'll be a £4 fix or a £150 fix.....

Painted the plates of scale armour, I also had to paint the black latex red underneath after looking more closely at the reference pics, used a metallic red paint marker for that.

Thanks guys! More detail work being done for the belt and all its accessories, still need to paint the buckle and add its tines, the narrower belt will be on top of the wider one. Started his mini daggers that I think must be hunting skinning knives as they'd be pretty useless on the battlefield (the handles will be cut short and angled), I don't think you can shank orcs to death?! Also found that the little elastic band locks you get on some packaged goods will work well as his tunic fasteners when painted silver.
Got the boiler working yay!! It was fortunately just the PCB fuse.
