From AaronH - 28mm Uruk-Hai Crossbows (40 Points)
This is the final entry of Uruk-Hai for this challenge season, if for no other reason than the rest of my unpainted models have at least one color put on them already so are ineligible for inclusion in the challenge.
These eight were a bonus group for me. They were not part of my plan, but since I'm ahead of schedule I threw them on the table.
There are six crossbows. These are scary in game since they hit at twice the strength of a normal bow. They have good range but can't fire if they move. In keeping with the rest of this army they are brutal and hard hitting.
There's also an Uruk-Hai captain. These are some of the very best generic captains in the game. The eighth is another pike. I would have rather painted a sword but they were all started and then left to sit for ten years. They'll have to wait another few months.
These were easy models to paint. The GW metals don't suffer from the sudden loss of detail that their plastics do. It was pretty clear what each part was supposed to be, meaning less repainting was necessary. With these eight models done I've got three warbands worth of painted Uruks, which is a great start to the army.
