Warg Riders PDF Painting Guide

Today I have a PDF Painting Guide for the Warg Riders from the “Spreading War” expansion to share with you, from The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth by Fantasy Flight Games:

These were really fun to paint up, and as I often like to do with the “minions” I made heavy use of the Contrast Colours to achieve some pleasing results quite quickly!

I am especially pleased with how easy it is to create some quite attractive non-metallic metal effects for places like the shoulders where we can let the Contrast Colours provide the shadow to mid tones, and we just go in with a few highlights:

Well, I do hope some of you find the guide useful!  There will be more LOTR JIME videos and PDF guides to follow soon.  Happy Painting!


PS I’d like to thank my kind patrons on Patreon for funding these guides, and I’d also like to share an affiliate link to the Rosemary & Co Series 8 brush that I love to use. (I use the Size 2, “Short handle”), and here’s an affiliate link to Element Games where I buy most of my other hobby supplies.  Thank you!

    Great job! Great pdf! I’m thinking about using contrast paints, but just sont like the way it looked. Maybe the key is the zenithal highlights during the prep stage?

    How would you go about re-attaching the slings to these mini’s? I was excited to paint them but when removing them from the bag, I found 2 of the 3 slings had been broken off already.
