The last two stands of Uruk-hai Pike/Spear I did just didn’t work out so well… All those advancing guys with their pikes out front… they couldn’t be set in the drawer… they couldn’t be lined up against any on the battle field… I was about to rip the two bases apart and just use the ones with the pikes upright ans accept that I would only ever have three stands of Spear in my Isengard army… then Mr. Miller gave me 6 more with pikes upright that he got as part of some mega deal…
So now I have four stands of Uruk-hai pike:
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
These are all plastic Lord of the Rings figures from Games Workshop. The two stands in front have the newly painted lot on them – they are mixed with five others taken off the stands that originally had Uruks with their pikes out front.
Don’t go thinking that I’ve just pitched the others though… I simply rebased them onto washers and will use them for skirmishi gamin’:
…well, if I ever need some pike armed orcs in a skirmish game….
Now I just have three more stands of Warg Riders to finish up and that’s it… of corse those warg riders will take some time as they are all busted up and a number of them are missing limbs that will need to be remade from scratch out of modeling putty… mutter-grumble…
Maybe I should get on that though – because once they’re done that’s an army that’s complete! Done! I can walk away from and say “my work here is finished!” How often do you get to do that!?
Here’s the entire army of Isengard so far…
That’s 32 AP:
1x Beasts or Riders (Warg Riders) (+3 more to do!)
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Some mounted Vikings I’m planning to use as a “Hero” for my HOTT Norse has made it’s way to the front of the workbench, as have a handful of LOTR Dwarf Archers… they’re all a little crammed for space as a bunch of Warrior Wimmin (winged or otherwise) for Amanda’s HOTT chick army are still hanging out there and some plastic descent figures which are trying to move their way up… hard to say which will get done first…
