I had some spare metal 1/29 scale Eaglemoss Collectors Models and Chess pieces hanging around and I decided to have a go at making some bronze statues out of them for scenic use with my 28mm GW LOTR armies.
I removed the original bases and supeglued them on some GW plastic Moria pillars. I then sprayed them black ready for applying the bronze paint. Once dry Vallejo Verdigris was applied to give the weathered look. Pillars were dry brushed and that was it done - some nice scenic pieces quickly made from surplus bits.
To steady the pillar bases I filled them with sand and stuck some 40mm plastic bases over the open ends.
A couple of "Gimli's" ready for use as generic dwarf warrior statues either side of a gateway etc...
