From the Archive – The Lord of the Rings Gandalf the Grey miniature

The Lord of the Rings Gandalf  the GreyNo Lord of the Rings miniature collection would be complete without Gandalf the Grey the archetype for fantasy wizards across the entire genre. My Gandalf is from the Games Workshop range of Lord the Rings miniatures and is actually part of the Fellowship of the Ring set. So expect to see some Hobbits in the next couple of weeks.

Gandalf’s robe and hat was painted first using Codex Grey, and then a wash of a 50/50 mix of Chaos Black and Codex Grey. Highlighted first with Codex Grey, and then a light drybrush of Skull White. Flesh tones started using Elf Flesh, lightly washed with Snakebite Leather, and then blended while still wet with Elf Flesh on cheeks and nose. The beard started out as Codex Grey, shaded with the same 50/50 mix as the robes and highlighted through to white. In all a fun miniature to paint and actually a lot easier than he looks. None Shall Pass!
