Now say it in your best Sauron voice :)
This is my current project, an Isengard War of the Ring army. I have the first 1000pts all finished and played my first game with the fully painted army the other night. After hacking through 320 Moria Goblins the mighty Fighting Uruk-Hai stood battered but victorius!
Currently the forces of the White Hand consist of;
- Sauruman of the Many Colours
- I cant belive its not Thyrdon (stand in Uruk, no weak men in my army!)
- 3 Companies of Uruk Hai with Swords and Shields
- 3 more Companies of Uruks as above
- 3 Companies of Uruk Hai with Crossbows and led by a Captain
- 4 Companies of Urak Hai Scouts with Bows
- 1 Company of Beserkers
- Isengard Troll
The models are all bog standard and not converted (which is a change for me!) and as I will never play the Battle game I have decided to model the mins staight onto custom MDF bases. I will be making modelled counters for casualties but at the moment I just use glass stone things.
They are painted pretty fast with an undercoat stage, base colours, Devlen Mud wash, and highlights. I have used a mix of White Hand symbols and S -runes for the markings.
I have textured the bases with Sellys No More gaps and sand, kitty litter and bark (for the rock outcrops) Its then flocked with a mix of GaleForce9 Summer, Winter and Autumn flocks and small clumps of Foliage.
Its heaps of fun to use and I am currently painting up the extra companies to take it to 1500pts
