Interesting models, I realy look forward to test them on the battlefield.

War in Rohan! (part II)

 "Hunt them down. Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain, you do not know fear. You will taste man-flesh." - Saruman

With the new War in Rohan supplement I decided to give Isengard some more love. So I started to paint up parts of the Uruk-hai scout army:

Desktop update

Another small update.

I bought the invisible ringbearers and based them. Lovely addition to the game!

I also picked up the recently rereleased Hasharins and decided to paint both of them for my Corsair army:

2019: Recap

And 2019 came to a close.

Time to see if I realised my goals. As every year the goal is to:
  • Paint more lotr models than I buy
  • Buy more lotr models than Games workshop releases.
  • Paint at least 100 models

In total I painted 182 Lotr models, 14 more than in 2018. An absolute record for myself.
 I have 2505 models in my collection and 1510 of them are painted. I'm only 8 models off a complete collection.

So I painted more than 100 models and definiatly bought more models lotr than GW and Forgeworld released. Due to the rereleases I bought 222 new models. A lot more than I painted so I failed that goal. 

I also stated that I would try to finish the mancave but then the baby happend!

2020 will be epic! I will keep the main three goals but will also try to hunt dowm the last 8 models!

Laketown part I

Last models for 2019:
Every year I try to paint up one good and one evil army. I painted up the Corsairs for evil but with all the new supplements I never came around painting a new good force. I did finish three legendary legions but they were build upon existing armies. So I finally started with my new Survivors of Laketown army.

Finally I painted a lonely Halbarad for some scenarioplay:

War in Rohan!

War in Rohan! The latest new supplement for Middle earth strategy battle game once again made me change my priorities. I dusted off my Isengard forces and started painting up models for the legendary legions. Only a few models needed to finish up complete legions. I started with Ugluk's scouts:

Scouring of the shire part III: Hobbit sheriffs and Sharkey and worm

I painted up some lovely old and new lotr models. I started with Sharkey and worm:

Next up, some more hobbit heroes. Once again lovey forgeworld sculpts. Always a joy to paint. Still four hobbit heroes left and I can start the Scouring of the Shire campaign.

I have been terribly buzy the last few weeks! So much that I had no time to take some pictures of the finished models. I made some more progress for the scouring of the Shire campaign. And ofcourse War in Rohan happend.

I bought myself the rulebook, new models and the rereleases I still needed. The list of models I still need to complete my collection is decreasing rapidly. Only eight more models to go!

Meanwhile I started with the Rohan fortification set. Absolute value for money. I only put together one of the pallisade sets and 2 houses. Still so much to build...

I also bougth some Glow in the dark paint. Now I have a real ghostly army.
