From TeemuL - Uruk-Hai Command (10 Points)
I have been busy, but managed to paint these two fellows during the week. They are from the GW LotR Uruk-Hai Command blister and are Captain and Standard Bearer. As usual, the sun was not shining today and the light has disappeared, but I managed to get decent photos in artificial light.
Color selections are familiar from last week's entry, they are very similar to Lurtz. These fellows have the white hand symbols, captain on the shield and standard bearer on the helmet. The banner, shield and helmet are all hand painted (pun intended).
Game vise they give me more options, previously I only had Lurtz to command my Uruk-Hai force, now the captain gives me flexibility. Standard Bearer will help the fighting. They were rather easy to paint and the models are metal. The Standard Bearer has some issues with the balance, if set on rough terrain, so little precaution is needed.
Ten more points.
Great work Teemu! Give them a hand folks (ahem, sorry). These two louts look suitably ferocious and I'm sure they'll be welcome additions to your LotR collection. With this new captain I assume you now don't have to spend extra points for Lurtz to command your Uruks?
If you haven't thought of it already, superglue a coin or washer into the bottom of the standard bearer's base and that should help with his stability on the tabletop.
