The Swan Knights of Dol Amroth

Kinda describes what's happening here....

Over the the half-term break I got into some painting, more explicitly six knights of Dol Amroth:






I think I did these guys okay, I'm particularly pleased with the shields and robe/tunic-y things.

The colours used:

Basecoats:

  • Scorched brown - leather and straps
  • Ultramarines blue - shield base and gloves
  • Boltgun metal - all metals
  • Graveyard earth - skin
  • Bleached bone - swan fans(?)(not on shields)
  • Codex grey - tunics

Intermediate coats:

  • Bestial brown - leather and straps
  • Codex grey, Skull white (2:1) - tunics
  • Codex grey, Skull white (1:1) - tunics
  • Codex grey, Skull white (1:2) - tunics
  • Enchanted blue - gloves and decals on shield
  • Enchanted blue, Ice blue (1:1) - decals on shield
  • Ice blue - decals on shield
  • Bleached bone, Skull white (1:1) - swan fans(?)
  • Dwarf flesh - flesh

Highlights/final layers:

  • Graveyard earth - leather and straps
  • Skull white - decals on shield and swan fans
  • Boltgun metal, skull white (2:1) - all metals
  • Elf flesh - flesh
  • Shining gold - guard on sword
  • Skull white - tunics

Hope this helps, or guides vaguely towards a more suitable solution.

Turn 8 of Gondor in flames should be up very soon so bear with.

Until then

  3. Regrettably I can't, I'm still using them for a few planned battles (he says despite not posting in two months) and I'm quite fond of them. I appreciate your interest in them though :)
