I don't paint a lot of fantasy figures but I do like the Games Workshop Lord of the Rings ones. Given that they actually do see service in the occasional game I usually have a few at various stages of completion.
I bought this down on the Isle of Wight last summer and based it and undercoated it immediately but it then sat on my workbench for over a year. It's the first big plastic LotR figure I have done (my other troll was a metal one) and apart from the typical lack of undercutting it was fine to paint. I have another big figure undercoated, a fell beast, which I may have a go at next as it is gathering dust on my shelf.
Made good progress on the Copplestone 18mm fantasy figures today so may try and get some more done this week.
