Isengard: part I

I decided to continue working on my Isengard forces. I already have a hugh part of the army painted. About 40 warriors, 30 scouts and most of the heroes.  Time to clear out the last parts of the Isengard backlog. I started with the command packs. I really love the models, Isengard aged so well. The old sculps can stand up to the latest Forgeword additions.

Moria update

A few years ago I practically finished my Moria army. Only stuff left to paint were two different Balrog poses and I missed Ashrak and a warg marauder. This year my target is to complete my collection, so for the last few models I'm willing to spend that extra bit of cash :D.

During lockdown I tracked down both the marauder and Ashrak. Ofcourse I had to paint the straight away:

Scouring of the shire part XI

I finished my scouring of the Shire project. I painted up the two last batches of archers and Brandobas Took.

Scouring of the shire part X

And once again, another batch of hobbits. I'm getting tired of them :D. I painted up the last 4 shirriffs and the old Bilbo. Only 16 archers and Brandobas left.

Yesterday I used my hobbits in the first few battles since the lockdown started with mixed results. First game against a Rohan all mounted force they lost in a game of assassination. It was a close game so happy with the result as it isn't that difficult to kill an unarmed Fatty or Lobilia.

Next game I had an easy victory against a dwarf army. Some lucky shooting and a brutal first turn of combat left the dwarf force broken. A second turn of combat decimated them and ended the game.

Hobbits offer an interesting play style in the game. No mobility at all but as you field nearly a 100 models they stil are everywhere on the table. The legendary legion also is a must for the bonuses they give. Looking forward to some more playtesting!

Scouring of the shire part VIII

Another Hobbit update, I really made some great progress. I try to limit each batch of eight models to just a few colours. It makes the paint job real fast without binding in on the overall quality of the paint job itself. In the end it will not be noticeble due to the cheer number of models. 72 warriors and another 20 heroes I believe.
