The watcher in the water: Tentacles

This is one of my main goals for 2012: I want to play all szenarios from the Lord of the Ring Games Workshop Hobby Book “The Fellowship of the Ring” .

This means that I have now a reason to paint a lot of miniatures I`ve collected the past 5 Years :-P

Nevertheless I need some special miniatures like the watcher in the water,

which I decided not to buy but to build it by myself.

Here is the result from my sculpting session :

I`ve used following colors and washes: 
Tanned Flesh Color – Thraka Green, Asurmen Blue and Devlan Mud Washes 
The base is not ready now – I`m still thinking about how I want to design it and what kind of water I want to use. So until I have an idea the base stays simlpe black…
If you want to know, how I created the tentacles, here are some pictures from the building process:

    Very nice idea, which I might copy for my own watcher in the water ;) Are you planning to sculpt the body of the creature aswell?

    I find it extremely cool that some members of the Lord of the Rings Community are still actively into the Hobby-great inspiration!

      Thank you Marc – I`m happy that my work inspire you to create your own minis :-D

      I`m planning to get the watcher`s head from the thomarillion shop – unfortunately I don`t know if it is still avaliable, maybe ebay…

    Great I just read about your fellowship Project on tabletop-hdr.de and I will follow that very closely :) I just REdiscovered the LOTR skrimish game 2 weeks ago by buying the four hobbits and Sam’s Poney so your project comes right in time!

    The thomarillion watcher is unfortunately OOP aswell as the cool stone trolls from the Hobbit :(
