Today I’d like to share a PDF painting guide for Atarin from the Villains of Eriador expansion to The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth by Fantasy Flight Games.
Without any character art or visual description of Atarin in the game, I based my colour choices on the idea of him being a Black Numenorean, so went with some dark metallic armour, and a red cloak to create the impression of rank.
I’ve also chosen to have a play with some simple and fun lighting effects to add some drama to the figure. (I like to think he has a magic sword with runes that glow orange when there are hobbits nearby, so watch out Bilbo!).
With Atarin complete, I’m all caught up with the Journeys in Middle-earth figures and now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Shadowed Paths expansion…
I hope you’re all staying well and safe where ever you are, and are able to enjoy some happy painting whilst we ride out this storm.
