Here the link to the lotr army I painted in 2006, at that time I used tamiya smoke ink for armors and no citadel washes. It's a Balchoth army, the Easterlings of Dol Guldur, so I painted all the miniatures with a dark paint scheme. The orcs and the other civilians were just dipped. I wrote a background of the balchoths but unfortunatelly it's in italian language:
Actually I sold this army (just some months ago), I lost interest in the LOTR wargame years ago and I was not so fond about this army (especially the plastic miniatures).
