One of the good things that seems to have come out of the narrative campaign so far is that I’ve started repainting a lot of my collection. Many of my LotR models were painted back when I was about eleven or twelve, and so naturally they look awful. The first models to be redone were my Ringwraiths, followed by the four hobbits, but these were all fairly minor things, so I’m not gonna be making a post about that. The first major group to be finished are the Uruk-hai Scouts, along with their two captains Lurtz and Ugluk.
In addition to the two villains there is one old box worth of Scouts. i.e. 24 in total: 8 with hand weapons, 8 with hand weapons and shields and 8 with orc bows. On a side note I originally picked these guys up specifically to play scenarios out of the Two Towers Journey book. The first appearance they’ll be making in the campaign will either be at Amon Hen with the breaking of the Fellowship, or else at the Fords of Isen, depending on how things pan out.
So that’s the first half of Saruman’s hunters. The second half will be 24 Orc Warriors, led by Grishnakh who I’ll attend to sometime soon(ish). The next models I paint will likely be a group of six warg riders, though that won’t be until I’ve actually got them, as I haven’t even been able to order them yet. In the meantime I’ll be working on something rather interesting that I’ve never really done before. I won’t reveal what it is yet as not only does it spoil what happened in the first six scenarios, but because I can’t guarantee it’ll work in the first place…
Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed it.
