One of the things I enjoy the most about the range Hobbit models is creating dynamic photos using a little bit of terrain and some mood lighting. What better way to share my recently finished Great Eagles then to set up a little treetop scene with Gandalf. More pictures after the jump.
Believe it or not the eagle on the left was dry brushed and the one on the right had the feathers painted individually. I really enjoyed painting these. I think I might pick up some Wargs next for my eagles to harass.
If you’d like to know how I painted the Great Eagles, then please visit my tutorial here.
I like the drybrushed eagle too, although the work that went into the feathers on the other one is amazing.
Hope you do pick up some wargs, I'd love to see your take on them!
They both look great and it's really hard to say which one I like more.
Those are excellent models and an excellent paint job! I might need to try and work those in to a future army/diorama.

As always the work is excellent. I actually prefer the Eagle on left that was dry brushed. I think dry brushing gets a bit of a bad rep. But I honestly think the technique works well on models like the eagles. Painted some of the Hobbit Dwarfs about a week ago and must say the model quality was exceptional. Awesome stuff.
