Saruman's little workshop...

Seems I am listing towards making silly doll houses instead of manly miniature wargaming-stuff.

The tables were made a few millimeters taller (or do you say "higher" when it is an object and not a person?) because I didn't want to attach Saruman to his workshop since it is not a diorama. He would instead be placed on the floor on his base like a normal model and thus make him taller. But I might have overdone it. Whatever...


Colorama by Llamarama... Bottles, candles and books and a little throne for Saruman's skinny behind. The tables are almost as cluttered as in the movie:


I made a tiny scale but looking at this image it seems insufficient. I would also like to make at least three windowed walls to set the scene more appropriately. That's all until next weekend, good night!

    1. And this evening I will try to paint all these little bits and bobs :/

      Not entirely unpleasant but not directly entertaining (I LOVE it (not really) when the hobby feels like going to work, like when playing the PC-game MoOIII - even in the reviews they said the same thing: Feels like going to work)!

  2. Wow, this looks fantastic! It's not overdone at all! I wish I could make something like this.

    1. Thanks ms Sofie! And thank you for following! I still haven't figured out how to do this whole follow-thing. Yet ;)

  4. Its brilliant, I'd love to know where you got all the little bits and pieces from or are they all scratchbuilt?

    1. Thanks man! The skeleton is a Mantic undead rat, and the barrel is a Renendra generic barrel (IIRC). The furniture is scratch built using artist's cardboard which warp very very little when wet (with paint!).

      Candles, bottles and a few of the backs of the books (rather specific here) are GS-scratch built. I am satisfied with the amount of stuff, perhaps not with the quality and/or finihs of each individual piece, but the amount of it should make one disregard this, and focus on the overall instead of specific details.

      At least that's how I look at things, which is (probably) why WotR is the game for me ;D
