Denethor's Despair : Mithril Miniatures Lord of the Rings

I had the pleasure recently of painting some large & some limited Mithril Miniatures, some individuals, some scenes.  I do love the atmosphere that Mithril captures for Lord of the Rings.

These two seem related, so I'll post both in this update:

First: Denethor in the throne room of Gondor.
The grey marble throne he would never sit in... which I think he was fine with until he found out someone else was intending to sit in it soon!


Second: His greatest point of despair, the death of Boromir, his eldest son:

Fantastic work as usual. I haven't painted Mithril before but have a large GW lord of the rings collection. There is something much more classic about these models, old school LOTR. Sam at Sam's Miniature World would be impressed.

I'm a fan and collector of MITHRIL figures and , I think that I will stop to paint them since I've seen yours ...
a Great, Great job !!
the Throne is absolutely wonderful and unbelievable ! The marble effect is perfect: never see such a work.

And the funeral boat of Boromir is a pure marvel.
"Chapeau Bas, Maître!" as we say in France...

Thanks all, much appreciated.

I do love to paint marble. This was faster marble work than what I'd do for character class, but I like the effect even still.
