I've painted up my childhood favorite character. I first remember Gandalf the Grey when I first read the Hobbit in 6th grade. I'm immersed into Tolkien enough now that I have many favorite characters from the series, however that first love for Gandalf and his odd way of getting things going in the right direction will always remain. A gray cloak, silver scarf, a blue hat and tall black boots. I had already painted up the plastic version but I wanted the metal version. I was at Adepticon and my friend found two copies of Gandalf on horse and on foot. I just wanted one on foot. I didn't expect to get a hold of the the rare OOP model of him on his non-Shadowfax mount. I really enjoyed painting him up and I even tried some new basing techniques from 'Army Painter'. They have these super cool flowers that can be pinched off and glued right on the base. I think they really add a lot to the basing of the miniature.
Anywho Mr. Gandalf the Grey.
