Those trolls look amazing.  Dang. 


Is that the Witch-King himself at the bottom, then?

It is - having mastered beautiful sculpts in age of sigmar and 40k it looks like they’re turning their attention to LotR at last

Club is tonight and I’m taking Rivendell so there’ll be some proxies but I’ll do my best

No un-painted figures allowed on the table was the rule for the gaming group I used to be in.  ;D

It’s jokingly referred to at club too, that or 3 colours minimum so people paint stripey helmets and call it done

Tuesday night at Board in Brum - 3 games of LotR including mine, 2 star wars, 1 blood bowl, 2 AoS, one 40k and one Epic i think



The enemy, the Easterlings - this is a certain collection of them that comes under the title of The Wain Riders legendary legion, 3 chariots and shit loads of cavalry



Me, the Knights of Rivendell with proxied Rohan riders



The charges comes on - the set up for the scenario was anywhere in your half of the board, he set up right on the centre line knowing his job was to just charge at me - his armies sole purpose, i stayed at the back to try and get as much shooting in as possible - what i forgot about was his heroic march and war drums - so by the end of turn 1 he was 6 inch away! Legolas here has just taken out a chariot with a single shot - from there it went downhill, so downhill that i forgot to take any more pictures

Tim is a much better player than i am, but a very honest heart on sleeve kind of player, i know his tactics will always be charge at me and target the heroes - he has nothing to fear from Rivendell yet because im just learning their nuances - im 3-1 up against this force with Angmar because he doesnt know how to deal with the magic of the barrow wights, not that one can anyway. Here the elves were simply overwhelmed, i can charge the front line and probably win that battle but he can envelope the force and come round the back and make it 2-1 on every match up. Elrond has a spell that knocks everyone off their horse, i just didnt use him properly and he got stuck at the back of the army unable to get out after having his horse shot from under him - so in the end im left with just Glorfindel and one knight - the defeat was that thorough i held back on buying the 12 knights to complete this force - all cavalry, shooty elves may not be my thing - he will never be my only opponent but for now i need a force that can stand in the middle of the field, take his charge and then push him back - this looks like the Iron Hill Dwarves so the research begins

Looks great, mate  :bigthumb:

For our friends across the pond, 'Brum' is a colloquial nickname for Birmingham.
