Lord of the Rings - Legolas

  
 This week I've finished this figure that has been left over for some months and I 'm very happy that I finally did it!! Legolas is my favorite character from LOTR so you will see some more of him in the future..



     I 've made a "base conversion" for this figure and now is more a "Vignette" than a playable figure.To do that, I've used some Modelling plaster with coarse surface, a sea wood (wood pieces weathered by the sea and collected at the beach..I 'm collecting many every summer!!) and a handmade wooden base.Also the classic grass tufts and foliage.
   Here are some pictures of the various stages of the procedure.

 Assembly of the miniature and base.

The figure is almost done!!

 






The Final result.



I hope that this post was at help or an inspiration to someone!

Thank you for visiting my blog!!!

  4. Fantastic base and figure! Pity that it doesn't look possible to add a bowstring!
    Go on George!
