When I discovered Thunderbolt Mountain miniatures in the 90s, I was amazed by the detail they got into their little dioramas. I was given two as a birthday present one year and really must get them finished one day.
Later still I saw that Thunderbolt Mountain were making a line of 30mm figures that could have come straight from the pages of Tolkien. So I fell in love for the third time with the work of Tom Meier and bought as much as I could afford; not always easy without a UK distributor.
I have a few now, but have always been too scared to paint them because I knew I couldn't so them justice, particularly the Elves.
I tried some Orcs a while back and was happy with the results, and now I have finally plucked up the courage to paint my first Elf.
I'm pleased with him.
Wood Elf Noble - Oak.
The first of many...
