I've been in the painting doldrums recently. I've forced myself to just keep painting, finishing off small projects along the way, and keep achieving little things.
|Radagast and Sebastian|
Fortuitously, The One Ring website had 'Radagast' as the topic for their recent friendly painting challenge. I haven't actually painted (let alone assembled) any of the 'Escape from Goblin Town' stuff, and this seemed like a good way to get things started and get the juices flowing again.

|I didn't like this figure initially, but it grew on me|
|Spiders, fungi and logs all part of the sculpt|
I tend to paint my LotR figures a bit more on the darker side of the spectrum to match the film, which looks OK up close, but a bit more drab from a distance. This figure is no exception with all these shades of brown, but at least I'm consistent.
I'm happy with the outcome, and I think this has not only relieved me from the doldrums but also reinvigorated my need to paint the Hobbit set.
