Hello planetfigure forums! As you can see I am new to this forum (I am also new in miniatures painting) and this is my first topic! First of all, a few things about me: I am 25 years old, I live in a small Greek island with no local access to art shops and specific paints and I just entered into miniatures painting section, in order to accomplish the goal/dream I have since I was a young boy => To build the world of Lord of the Rings from terrains to all miniatures (for both gaming and watching) straight to my house. I know it's going to be a very hard project but I have the time, the energy and of course the money needed, otherwise I would not post at all about it. Now let's move on to the purpose of this topic...After a 2 week practice on miniatures painting (on cheap/fail minis), I am ready to start my first Lord of the Rings project which is a game I have called War of Ring. Here is the thing, even if these minis are small and not so much detailed I want to make them as good as possible in terms of colors matching and tha's why I have gathered information around internet for all Lord of The Rings Games Workshop miniatures since I am planning to move on to them, after finishing the War of Ring, and start building them (I have already won a few of them from ebay auctions so that's realistic). However, I am not experienced with Citadel colors so I would not like paying money to colors I will never use. (If you ask why Citadel, remember that I live in a Greek island so I have to purchase my colors from online greek stores to save shipping costs, and most of them have mostly Citadel or Warpaints) Below is a table of the citadel colors I currently have (I have all Citadel Washes too): Blacks: Abbadon Black Whites: Ceramite White Yellows: Averland Sunset / Yriel Yellow / Flash Gitz Yellow Reds:Mephiston Red / Evil Sunz Scarlet Blues: Macragge Blue / Altdorf Guard Blue / Calgar Blue Grays: Eshin Grey / Dawnstone Greens: Waaagh! Flesh / Warboss Green / Skarsnik Green Browns: Mournfang Brown / Skrag Brown / Deathclaw Brown Fleshes: Cadian Fleshtone Silvers: Leadbreaker / Runefang Steel Golds: Balthasar Gold/ Gehenna's Gold / Auric Armour Gold Extras: Bugman's Glow/ Zandri Dust / Ushabti Bone Now here is a list of the colors I gathered from online tutorials or GW guides on how to paint Lord of the Rings minis: NOTE: Some color names were posted with their old Citadel name but I changed them to their new name according to GW color conversion chart. Administratum Grey Alaitoc Blue Baneblade Brown Balor Brown Bestial Brown Bestigor Flesh Caliban Green Castellan Green Deathworld Forest Doombull Brown Elysian Green Fenrisian Grey Gorthor Brown Hashut Copper IronBreaker Kantor Blue Karak Stone Khorne Red Kislev Flesh Loren Forest Mechanicus Standard Grey Nurgling Green Pallid Wych Flesh Ratskin Flesh Retributor Armour Rhinox Hide Russ Grey Screaming Skull Steel Legion Drab Stirland Mud Stormvermin Fur Tallarn Sand Tau Light Ochre The Fang Ulthuan Grey Warplock Bronze Wazdakka Red Zamesi Desert So here is my question: Which colors do you think I should purchase and why? I don't mind buying them all since money is not a problem as I said, but I don't like paying for things that I will barely use or I can create from my current paints and moreover I could invest that "wasted" money to buy minis or terrains so I prefer paying to exactly what I am going to use often. Thank you very much your time and can't wait to see your replies guys!
