Well, I just recieved my latest BF order, and was able to finish my long-time Theoden figure. Overall, I think that it turned out well, although there are some areas that I'll probably touch up. Anyhow, enjoy!
Image
That was the overview of the figure itself, without the sword and shield out.

Image
Here's another, displaying some of the detail on the helmet. Most of the scrollwork is just random scribble, but I think it turned out nice. The gold on the scabbard, however, did not. I shall repaint that.

Image
This one shows some of the painting on the front of the armor.

Image
This one is my personal favorite, showcasing the shield and sword. The sword is rather basic, but I think that the shield turned out well.
Another thing that I'd like to point out is that all armor other than the shield, helmet, and vambraces is made of metal, cut out from a thin tin can. It turned out alright, if I say so myself.

Enjoy!

RIIIIIIIIDE NOW! RIIIIIIDE NOW! RIDE TO WRATH! RIDE TO RUIN! AND THE RED DAWN! FORTH EORLINGAS!

In other words, this is one of the best, most epic minifigures I've seen in all my born days. 8o

Why thank you. That quote was most magnificent, if I do say so.

Great! Only thing I'd change is that little mic piece on the figs head.

If you make more tin-can armor (which you should), you should document it or make a tutorial. Really awesome fig!

Just WOW! It is an awesome figure and it looks so well done and finished. The decals and paint are near perfect and the armor is completely amazing.
