Lord Of The Rings - Reaper Miniatures Style

Lately I have been thinking of Lord Of The Rings and trying to figure out what miniatures might work for the 9 main characters.

Reaper seems to make some perfect figures for Gandalf, Boromir, Legolas.  There are some possible ones for Boromir.  Their selection on halflings is rather limited.

Any ideas for good halflings/hobbits that would work with the Reaper line?

Warploque Miniatures - Arc World Hobbits / Halflings

Here are some really cool hobbits / halflings from Warploque Miniatures. Probably some of the best I have seen in a while. A while back when Alex Huntley was first starting out he sent me out a resin  troll to review. His skills back then were pretty awesome and he has continued to get better and better. He also has play test rules available for his miniature line.

Old School Orcs

Recently I received 2 boxes of miniatures from a friend who has cancer. He is a friend I grew up with and the box he sent were miniature I had given almost 30 years ago.

The figures he sent where some of the first miniatures I owned from the late 70's to the early 80's. They brought back all sorts of great memories, so I thought I would kick off this summer talking about old school Fantasy.

Studio Miniatures - Wizard Of Oz

If you're in the market for some zombies or survivors, you got to check out Studio Miniatures. My favorite of the bunch are their Dorothy & The Gang - Human Survivors. Really Fun.

Copplestone Castings - Evil Geniuses

Are you looking for a fantastic set of characters for pulp scenarios?  Copplestone Castings has a set called Evil Geniuses that easily fit the bill.

Bob Olley did a really cool commission for someone who wanted a bunch of scrunt dictators. These however aren't available as far as I know. Too bad really, because they have lots of character.

Hydra Miniatures Robots

Found a rather nice blog called Laughing Ferret.  If you want to see gorgeous figures with great paint jobs, definitely check it out.

The figures below are from hydraminiatures.com and have an absolutely killer retro color scheme that Laughing Ferret brought to life.  Think of 1950's colors that make these figures pop. 

Any suggestions on how to come close to this green/blue color?
