A fun match!

Played another match with my brother last thursday. We rolled up the scenario where each hero has to try and rack up as many kills as possible before the end of the match, and Suladan won. Had some fun moments though.

Here some dwarven archers are pelting the haradrim, with Suladan and another rider charging into lines of dwarves, by a rocky hill.



At one point, thought Suladan was dead, having lost the fight roll, and lost every fate roll, etc, and being utterly slaughtered - then a moment later, remembering that there was a banner next to him, so he could have re-rolled. Being a freindly match, my brother let me re-roll the fight roll - and Suladan won, and took them out! A close call!

Here the Betrayer is trying out black darts on dwarves. Those shield dwarves are really, really tough!



At the last turn, my banner bearer was actually still in the match! He got surrounded on all sides by angry dwarves, who chopped him up, with Suladan looking on in the background. The statue was magically moved to the location for a more interesting photo :)

another batch of spearmen

Did another batch of spearmen today. Just the base coats, and a wash on top. They'll look much better too, once they've been highlighted properly, and the bases flocked, but I'll get around to that later.

Painting more Harad Warriors

I've started batch painting my LOTR guys again! Trying to put a base coat and black wash on all my unpainted figures. Later I'll base them, and highlight them. Anyway, here's today's batch! I was thinking they looked pretty bad, after having base coated them. Then I was much happier after the wash. I'm always amazed at how well it shows all the details in the model. For example, all the pale cloth areas were just a cream blob. With the wash, you can see all the strips of cloth! (Sorry about the dark photo, lighting wasn't very good)

Quarter done on making new Terrain Boards

I've finished one of four foamboard sheets, working on making a proper flocked battlefield instead of using teh citadel green mat. Only three more to go, then I'll have a new battlefield!

For full details on my process of constructing this miniatures table, see my scenery blog here:

Anyway, here's some pics of the first finished piece, with some LOTR stuff sitting on it!
