Troll Trio and Warband

"You are soldier's of Gondor! No matter what comes from that gate, you will stand your ground!"

I've finished my Warband for the One Ring Painting Challenge, a Mordor Troll Chieftain, 2 Mordor Trolls, an Orc Banner Bearer, and 8 Mordor Orcs. I look forward to using these in battle (the Trolls at least). One is quite heavily converted, as I had previously converted the hammer, and lost the spikes for the helmets, so a green stuff armour plate was added over the top, as well as a Green Stuff hammer.

To see the rest of the Warband in more detail, follow these links:

Second Mordor Orc Banner Bearer

So here is my second Orc Banner Bearer, painted for my Warband Entry, just got one Troll left to paint now, should be easy to do though. I wish I'd done a better job of paint stripping on this guy though.

The idea behind the banner is that it was previously a Dol Amroth Banner, taken by the Orcs of Mordor who then added their own designs to it, the Red Eye, as well as making it look like it was burning, to really anger the Gondorians.

Battles in the Deeps; Part Ten - 650 Points of Goblins

Something a little different for today - pictures of my in progress Moria army. It currently stands at 652 Points (702 if I give the Dragon Tough Hide), although I need more Heroes if I want to use with the new rules - two more at least. Don't forget to click on the pictures to see the full size versions!

Battles in the Deeps; Part Nine - More Goblins

Some more Goblins from me. I've gone for a blue-grey skin tone on these, instead of having hordes with just several shades of green skin. I really like it, and I think it works well in a subterranean environment.

Stay tuned for an army shot!

Mordor Orcs - Batch Two

Here is my second batch of Mordor Orcs for the One Ring Painting Challenge. Thankfully, these went a lot quicker than the first set. I still need to paint two Mordor Trolls and an Orc Banner, so look out for them! These four (and the first four as well now) all have the red eye somewhere on them.

First of the Mordor Orcs

My first four Mordor Orcs for both my army and the One Ring Painting Challenge, four more to come, and a banner, plus two Mordor Trolls. Not the best lighting in these pictures, but you get the idea.

Mordor Troll Chieftain

Here is the first of my models for the One Ring September Painting Challenge (Warbands), a Mordor Troll Chieftain. I found it quite hard to get a good picture of the armour, and the torso as his arm blocks the view and light. The last picture is to try and show you the armour, and the one before to show the base.
