Goldberry from Mithril

When I visited Alphaspel a while ago I found a large bargain bin full with Mithril figures from their JRR Tolkien’s Middle-Earth range. The sale is still on if this is your thing, all packs for between 30 and 40 SEK, which is a very good deal for the bigger packs.
I fell for M321 Goldberry, a beautiful model. I bought a couple of other packs you will see here on and off.
I see her as a useful civilian, be it in a fantasy, pulp or modern setting.
Paints used:
Skin – Vallejo 955 Flat Flesh, washed with Army Painter Soft Tone ink (Strong Tone around the eyes) and layered with 955 afterwards
Lips – Citadel Dwarf Flesh
Dress – Citadel Snot Green washed with Citadel Thraka Green Wash and drybrushed Citadel Scorpion Green.
Hair – Vallejo 822 German Camo Brown with a wash of AP Dark Tone

Flowers – Vallejo 948 Golden Yellow, washed with 937 Transparent Yellow and AP Soft Tone and finally a highlight of 928

Welcome follower Kris Marquardt with blog Wargames and Railroads, a nice mix of articles and what drew me in was the Old West stuff. He’s got a great comparison of different 28mm Old West buildings that are well worth a look if that’s your thing and a review of different MDF manufacturers. Much more to see. Recommended.
