    …. But wandering in the summer in the woods of Neldoreth he came upon Luthien, daughter of Thingol and Melian……

    The base was already 90% complete and intended for another small scene, but once I had the Crouching Outlaw ;) figure in my hands I had to complete the small scene. Luthien was already painted, but I had to repaint the flowing gown to match more with the description in The Silmarillion although I didn’t attempt to replicate the golden flowers on her gown.

    I have tried to give the impression of Beren watching unseen hence keeping both figures a bit too far apart to get both fully in focus in one shot, but hopefully the scene works.

    For those wondering about my comment regarding setting the base on fire, I used E Ze (spelling?) water meltable granules for the water. when trying to melt it using a mini blow torch after pouring it (you can do this :D), some of the ground work caught alight but thankfully no damage to the figures.

    Anyhow, I look forward to seeing how this looks in Grandma’s Garden Nino, and hope we don’t have to wait eight years Master Archer to see what you come up with :lol:.

    Amazing…. beautiful… magic…. pure Tolkien world in incredible diorama on the surface of several inches….

    I will put them soon in grandmas garden dear David…. Beren is almost painted… maybe this weekend…. If it is not a problem I would ask you a friendly permit if I can put pictures here….

    This topic could be dedicated to the Beren and Luthien story…. :)

    WOW !!!! :)

    Quiet similar than I imagine this scene . . .

    Fantastic David! Absolutely. And especially the tree I like A LOT !!! ( and I assume the Tree also likes the tree . . . :rolleyes: )

    And you can be sure that it won´t take eight yeras . . . 😎 though I have no trees at the moment.

    ( I am designing a special mirkwood scene at present and all my trees will be inside . . . and there are a lot of them, but that´s another story )

    As I said: great stuff to be seen here!

    PS: working with all kind of water stuff- I think a tutorial in general could be helpful . . . :|

    I will see what I can do – I have to get some more water stuff for a project I’m working on so perhaps I can do a step by step on how create some effects :D

    This really is a wonderful diorama, Master Ddaines. The figures are excellently painted and that base-frame gives a noble touch to the whole scene. And, yes, that tree …. ahh, brilliant that old fellow.

    Your “grade” of skilled artisan doesn´t do justice to your artistic level, Master Daines.

    As usual, like a lot yor work. In this case, is easy to feel the summer atmosphere, the happiness of the moment… very nice.

    Absolutely marvellous. A pity that this scene is “temporary”. Only at the time for taking the photos . . . :|

    Not at all Nino ;) Grandma’s Garden has an ‘Elvish Air’ to it, this scene looks great, what a pity you cannot put that part of Grandma’s garden on a base :lol:.

    This looks a lot more like what I was hoping to achieve had I not had alraedy had a base ready and waiting.

    The Man would love to see a photo of this :D.
