Rivendell’s central section is taking shape! The tiling was definitely one of the hardest parts of this assembly, but I also really enjoyed the construction of the pillars in the center, and getting the pictures placed properly on the back of the set.
Ten more bags down, and the central portion of Rivendell is just starting to take shape. I think my favorite element in this batch is the staircase leading to the upper gallery. According to the instructions, it doesn’t need studs because it has a handrail.
Ten more bags of Rivendell complete, and the outside area with gazebo and waterfall is starting to take shape. I particularly love the detail of the waterfall, complete with a mix of white foam bricks and blue solid and translucent water.
For Christmas, Joy decided to get me the Lego Lord of the Rings Rivendell set. With over 6100 pieces, I’m going to be building for a while, so I thought I’d do a little documentation of my work. The set comes in 50 bags, so I’m taking a picture bag by bag as I go, […]
These guys were an interesting challenge. I used a dark green and then washed with black to get the armor looking the way I wanted, and did a lot of work on the faces, with varying levels of success. I’m particularly happy with the bald warrior.

The latest out of the paint shop are a squad apiece of Iyanden Aeldari rangers and Dire Avengers. I’m particularly pleased with the more muted yellow and blue scheme on the rangers.
Finshed up a double batch of Iyanden Aeldari troops – a squad each of Guardian Defenders and Storm Guardians. I’m particularly happy with some of the faces on these guys – still honing my skin and eyes skills.
Continuing my open defiance of the box art, I painted these Xiphon Interceptors and Storm Eagle Assault Craft in Ultramarines colors. Coming soon, Happy Monster Joy’s take on Ork Air Waaaaagh units!
The box art for Aeronautica Imperialis: Wrath of Angels from Games Workshop clearly shows Craftworld Saim-Hain colors for the Aeldari fighters and bombers, but I’m stubborn – this squadron is painted in my preferred Iyanden color scheme instead. I had to freehand the symbols on the fighters, but I’m reasonably happy with how they came […]
