I'm not actually scheduled to play any events for War of the Ring, but I needed to paint up some of my Isengard Orcs for the Lord of the Rings events, so I figured I might as well paint up the entire collection of 48 models, just so I'll have them for War of the Ring. These guys were assembled and primed several years ago, and I've been waiting for an excuse to finish them.
|I filled the bases with Magic Sculpt, to serve as a bonding surface to glue on fender washers. The washers add heft and allow me to magnetize the models to movement trays and transport containers.|
In my renewed enthusiasm, I decided to build out more Pikemen. I already have three trays of them, but it's just not enough to make a proper impression of a pike block. So I'm adding another 20 models, which will double my pikemen -- plus a few more to fill out the remaining holes in the movement trays.
|I can't get enough of these Pikemen.|
|I basically need another "one" of these!|
I also may have the good fortune to have convinced some of the local players to try out the game. So I might actually have a chance to learn how to play the game, prior to showing up at NOVA!
