War of the Ring Update

I recently completely finished both my Isengard and Rohan armies for WotR.  More on that in a separate post that is forthcoming.

Preparations for Cair Andros are in full swing.  I've started basing the Gondor forces.  The Clansmen of Lamedon and Axemen of Lossarnach are painted and getting on bases now.  I have a large pile of Minas tirith warriors and knights also ready for basing.  A few quick pics below of tge painted units ... with custom banners ...

I've played some more WotR games at my place.  Retreated inside from the garage for this last one to enjoy my AC as we had an extreme heat warning on the day we played.

I'm making some additional tweaks to tge rules and army lists based on these recent games, but overall we are having a great time playing WotR.

I do need to try out having some wizards in the games and see how magic influences the battles.  Likewise for some of the nastier units in the game, like Ringwraiths, but all in good time.

I only snapped a few pictures using my phone ...

As always, lots going on as I continue to prep for the big game weekend in September.

  1. Excellent brushwork on miniatures, especially clansmen (wearing checkered kilts, right?)
    The pictures with game table look fantastic. Very exciting sights.

    1. Thanks Dmitry! Yes, the kilts are the Clansmen of Lamedon :-) A fun bunch of troops that bring some color to the tabletop :-)

    1. These are Fiefdoms troops --- those are the Clansmen of Lamedon and the Axemen of Lossarnach - while not depicted in the movie during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, they are part of the force that rides out with Prince Imrahil in the book.

  7. Looks fantastic both close up and in mass with the long shots. Also a nice touch with the tartan theme Jay.
