I'm still officially on a break from my Thorin & Co. project. But when I sat down at the desk the other night to finish my previous miniature, I realized that Bombur was nearly complete. All I needed to do was add a few highlights to move him out of the painting queue. So I made an exception to my forced hiatus from those pesky Tolkien dwarves and polished off the big guy.
Bombur had zero lines in the theatrical release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (perhaps that will change with the upcoming extended edition). It seems like all he did was eat. Just like the lines on that jolly dwarve's script, my screen is pretty much blank when it comes to talking about the miniature. It's a fine sculpt, for sure, and GW did a good job rendering the likeness of Bombur onto the mini, but that's all I got. There's simply nothing special about Bombur or my paint job. So instead of my usual running commentary, I'll just end here and leave visitors with a few more photos.
I need some inspiration to finish off the last four dwarves. Any ideas to get my dwarven groove going?
As always though, thanks for reading!!!
