This entry is just six rank and file troopers. Five sword and shield and one pike.
Two of the guys at the local store built Helm's Deep. It's one of the best models I've seen of the fortress. Naturally we need to have a lot of Uruks to fight out the siege.
|Pike from the rear.|
"There were four goblin-soldiers of greater stature, swart, slant-eyed, with thick legs and large hands. They were armed with short broad-bladed swords, not with the curved scimitars usual with Orcs; and they had bows of yew, in length and shape like the bows of Men. Upon their shields they bore a strange device: a small white hand in the centre of a black field; on the front of their iron helms was set an S-rune, wrought of some white metal."
There will be more Uruks coming across the table during the Challenge, but for now, on to other forces.
Welcome aboard Aaron!
It's great to see your traditional half-dozen enter the fray, and Uruks no less. :) I've always liked that you paint your troops in light of the books rather than the films. Not that I have anything against the movies, I think they're excellent, but I enjoy your Old Skool vision of the project. Perhaps the perfect marriage would be this approach done with the venerable Mithril Miniature range (though I could see that becoming an expensive endeavor).
These Lads of Saruman will give you 30 points. Nice job Aaron!
