The Hobbit: Grim Hammers Dwarves Part 2

I finished the box of Grim Hammers at the weekend and they came out OK without being brilliant.  Apart from the fact that I seem to have lost my ability to paint at present the detail of the armour on these at the side of the figures (always a problem with plastics) was little blurred.  I was going to paint their lower armour plate be plate but the detail was not precise enough so I had to resort to dry brushing.  I decided to go for the mountain interior base colour like my LotR goblins and existing dwarves.  I can always repaint them if I decide to go for a traditional grassy base.

Here is the design for one of the dwarves from The Hobbit Chronicles book which contains a lot of useful costume shots for all the characters from the film.  I can't actually remember who they fought in the film so need to wait for the DVD which is due out next month.  The armour is darker than the Boltgun Metal paint I used so I might add a black wash in the future.

A few of Thorin's company next, I think.
