  1. He looks lovely, mate. You can certainly see the care and effort put into this model across all of the different textures and details. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the base come together next! 👍

    1. Thank you for the kind words as always, John! One thing that I enjoy about LOTR minis is that realism is generally welcome and appreciated so the little details like the wood really pay off.

  2. Excellent finish o Eomer Jeff, had wondered why there was no post last week, your attention to every detail has paid off and it is a stunning piece. Sorry to hear you can’t get the results that you want on the base, this could be down to the materials you’ve used as you will have many different textures in there, and the different materials will all take paint differently as well.

    1. I learned in the past that sometimes with a longer project, skipping a week and not showing the same model over and over, isn’t a bad thing! Thanks for the kind words on the painting as well. I also have to thank you again for suggesting wood filler with MDF a while back because the milliput I was using on the display base is what was causing me problems. It just kept coming off in clumps when I sanded it. I used some wood filler instead and resanded today and I think I finally got a smoother finish that I’m satisfied with. It was just in time because I was getting pretty frustrated. Your suggestion of wood filler has paid me dividends multiple times now!

  3. Beautiful work mate. Another miniature brought to life by your artistic talent. Eomer really helps me now understand just how big that AoS figure is. Wow! Both have amazing painting and I really respect your work.

    1. Thank you for your support as always, mate! I enjoy the artistic side of the hobby and I’m glad that other people like yourself enjoy seeing my work. In many ways, it is just as nice as doing the work itself!

  4. Excellent attention to detail! I think it was a good choice going with the shield – it came out much better with the stance than I think the helmet would’ve.

    1. Thank you, Bret! I’m glad GW included the helmet as it gives you a cool option with Eomer but I suspect a lot of people (since this is a Strategy Battle Game after all) will choose a shield since it seems more realistic.

  5. Beautiful painting, Jeff! The shading and highlighting are wonderfully subtle, his face is awesome and the greens on his shield complement the reds beautifully. Nicely done, and I’m glad you’re so happy with the result!

    1. Thanks, Matt! I started to worry more about complimentary colors and making everything work together near the end so I’m glad the final touches helped achieve that 🙂

  6. Best Eomer that I have ever seen. Excellent job. Looking forward to seeing him on the fancy base.
    I had no idea that the storm cast was so big. Crazy. 😀

    1. Thank you, Stew! I didn’t realize the Stormcast was that big until he was basically assembled either. Scale creep has happened subtly to me anyway because I don’t buy Warhammer stuff terribly often. Pretty soon we won’t be painting miniatures at all! 🙂

  7. Wow, turned out so nicely and so many things to like about the mini. I really liked how the shield came out, the NMM on the spear, and the base skin tone. 😃
