'West' from TeemuL: From West to Middle

For the West Bonus Round I return to LotR and Middle Earth. Here you can see Isildur, son of Elendil, who both came to Middle Earth from the West, from the sinking island of Numenor.

Here  he is shown before his greatest victory, wearing  the broken Narsil before the Evil Lord Sauron.



I chose some dark red to his clothes, a bit similar as Boromir.


This is naturally a GW miniature from the set which includes dead Elendil and Sauron with Isildur. I only have Isildur and Sauron, but wihtout hands.


Here he is, looking up. I'm very happy with the face.


I put him on a 32mm base to give him some room and underline his loneliness.

  2. Wasn't he the last King of the West as well? In which case it is an even more fitting entry!

  5. Lovely work! Well done on nailing the eyes gazing up at the foe above him, my guys always end up looking cross-eyed!
