|Upon reflection, I probably should have taken a picture of the base before I glued the Oliphant on, as it really is the best part of the whole model, both in detail and in painting.|
When it came to the Haradrim, I didn't want to go with the style presented on box art, or in the films. I did consider painting them as black Africans, but then realised that that would be silly considering their attire. I'm not really sure what cultural group they resemble, if any, since their skin is a kind of goldeny colour (professional term there), but it is still very white looking. I also put a high priority on avoiding them looking like they were wearing uniforms, not sure if I succeeded, but they look okay to me.
|This last picture was done for a close up of the armour. Whilst the original design shows gold, I decided that would be beyond the means of simple peasants, so opted for a leather like design.|
Anyway, stay tuned for more content as I have now entered upon two weeks of school holidays and while I'm not playing Halo with my friends, I should have a good deal of time on my hands.
