Hobbits Invade the Museum!

Last night, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History held one of their After Dark events, and the theme was the Lord of the Rings.  There were cocktails, games, sword fighting demonstrations, a costume contest, and a showing of the 1977 Rankin and Bass animated Hobbit film.  It was a lot of fun, and I feel very lucky to have a museum that does this sort o thing.

Miniatures Monday

This week, we leave the night-haunted crypts behind and step out into the fresh air of the autumn forest.  Here we have a doughty woodsman with a spear tracking some unseen prey.  Is it a wild board or something more sinister?  This wasn't an overly complicated miniature to paint, but I decided to try a bit of clump foliage on the base to spice it up.  I was pretty pleased with the results, and I think that I will keep using his on future outdoor themed bases.
