Name: Royal Guard of Alahan- Lord Valdenar
Painter: Zach Lanier
Notes: I have loved this sculpt for a long time but never got around to painting him up. I finally finished him for GenCon 2012. He was a fun experiement in reds and fine sculpted detail. I didn’t spend all that much time on him, less than usual. I spent more time replacing the axe he holds in his right hand than on anything. I tried a bare hand, the original axe, a sword and finally the flag, which is actually a Lord of the Rings Flag from the elven standard bearer. He was entered in single fig but moved to large figure (possibly too tall because of the flag) and placed second. The base was a lot of fun and I was happy with the stonework and the lawn down front.
