I'M SLOWLY REPAIRING THE BLOG AFTER THE PHOTOBUCKETPOCALYPSE, A FEW POSTS AT A TIME. WORKING FROM OLDEST TO NEWEST ACROSS MY THREADS, SO IT'LL UNFORTUNATELY TAKE A LITTLE WHILE.


So as not to muck up the proper army building pledge thread, I'll start posting my LotR stuff in here instead. Some stuff (like this first post) will have content cross-posted from my regular P&M blog thread, while I'll also show some older stuff that's not been shown in the P&M Blog. Everything will of course be LotR-related, though. I'll start with my most recent LotR thing, which is kinda like starting off with a Whimper instead of a Bang, but hey!

So anyway... remember this from 2003?


LotR RotK SBG Box. FFS!
Well, only 11 and some change years later after buying them, I've finally painted the scenery that came with it. I started one statue and rubble pile last year, then found the second status and rubble pile, sprayed them, then let them all sit in their own (rubble) pile on the painting desk until a couple of weeks ago, when (as you'd be used to by now) I pulled out my finger and finished the former and painted the latter.



Actually, I'm pretty happy with how well they came out in the end. Some static flock, some tufts and a bit of weathering powders have given them a look I'm quite happy with over the bog-standard drybrushing.

I was always intrigued by the Lord of the Rings models, even bought a couple (including a debacle where my Fellowship of the Ring box had no Frodo but two Sam's).

Interested to see the various LoTR models you have.

I've got a fair few - many predating the Wordpress and moreso the Dakka blog. I'll try and post stuff at least once a week. Lots of stuff to photograph these days for both, and while my growing Gondor army looks impressive on the table, they're pretty tedious individually...

The RotK boxed game came with a full-sized softcover rulebook, 24 each of Warriors of Minas Tirith and the same number of Orcs. A sprue of terrain - those 4 pieces and a small bit with some fallen shields. Also some dice and wacky sticks. None of the original three games actually came with any members of the Fellowship, which I'm only just finding amusing now. That came later with the Mines of Moria set.

Yep! The original three boxes - and even Moria were good times.

Here's something I shared on my regular P&M blog last February. (I haven't had a chance to take photos of new stuff yet - hopefully tomorrow). This is a Reaper Bones "Spirit of the Forest" that I painted up to be an Ent or even a Huorn. The film's ones were nice enough, but the official models are very limited, and I always pictured the Ents as encompassing a wide variety of "body types" anyway. It was a 28-hour, last minute speedpaint, originally for one of the monthly comps over at TOR


It turned out to not be a fun easy mini to paint as I'd hoped, but pretty horrible, with ill-defined "what the hell is that supposed to be?" "details" all over it. It's not going to win any prizes - over on TOR or anywhere else, but I was at least on track at the end of the first night for a half-decent tabletop model by the end bell.


I also decided to grab a pic before adding the moss and foliage. You can see much of the muddy "detail" on the model that I decided to cover...
I considered OSL for the eyes, but decided against it. I wanted to keep it a little more subtle for this model. I went with WARNING MAY VIOLATE STRICT CANON "green Entish" eyes over "red Huornish" ones.

And done!

I really liked that Ent when I saw it on your blog. If I see the mini anywhere I will pick it up because despite your pretty negative view on it, I think your paintjob and finish are really great.

I like the GW Ent too, but I agree it is too samey if you want more than one Ent in a force. (Which I do).

Oh, I'm not completely negative. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, it's just that a lot of the detail is mushy and it turned out to not nearly as fun/easy to paint as I'd hoped. Kinda like the Mantic Ogres. I hated painting them, and they held up my Ogre army for pretty much a year, but now that they're finished, I'm actually happy with how they turned out. Just not fun to paint.

I've got one GW Ent finished, one unbuilt and a Treebeard who has been half-finished for several years now. Sadly the completed one has suffered some "battle damage" breakage of the smaller twigs from being used in battles by ham-handed friends. It's the sort of thing that makes me scared for pretty much every unit armed with spears of pikes, as well as almost any of the new whiz-bang "dynamic" GW plastic centrepiece figures...

Just a simple one today. Some of these models were finished last year, but I've finally finished off the last few of these last weekend, so now the unit is finished (for now). I've got them stuck to a Renedra 100x80mm movement tray for Kings of War, but since I use these guys for the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game I keep them based on 25mm rounds (also for aesthetics, and for consistency with most of my other models). These figures, as reasonably simple and uniform as they are have become a real bane to my painting queue. Originally, I only had the 24 models that came with the RotK starter box, and so with 8 of each type (Archers/Spear/Blade) I afforded them each a reasonable paint job, which involved blending their skirts, leggings and the edges of their shields with wolf grey over black rather than doing something simpler and faster like a black wash over dark grey. Because of this, and the fact that they're just not that interesting to paint - particularly en masse, they tend to take me forever to get done. The tree device on the shields, as many people will know is reeeeeeeally shallow as well, making it way trickier than it should be to give a quick once-over, which is a bit annoying.



When finished - and especially in a unit either on a tray or in a bunch - they look pretty good. They're effective at looking like what they're supposed to be. On the other hand, individually, they're really not very exciting at all. This is why despite painting quite a few of these guys last year and haven't shown any of them off to date aside from a single character model - Beregond. These guys are only on show today since I'm wanting to photograph everything I finish this year, and because you guys have shown some interest.



In the rear view here you can see the blending on their skirts. It's come out a little more stark in the photos than in real life, but that's ok. The 75mm of the three ranks of figures also doesn't quite fill the 80mm of the movement tray, but again that's ok - especially as Kings of War is an element based game, and people often use fewer models and/or unit fillers - this unit "should" be 20 men strong, rather than 12 - but that's okay since it means I actually get a lot more units completed by using models and their bases in this way.

Very cool minis! As you say, rank and file don't need to win no Golden Daemons to look good, but I must say yours look a helluva lot better than what my mass batch painting amounts to! I agree these really are my bane because I love them before and after the painiting marathon, but fail to really excite myself when actually painting them (so I normally add those childish little blood splatters that make no sense if they're fighting orcs...)!

One thing more.... never *deep breath to control myself* NEVER mention those blasted tree motifs again. I want to sleep tonight but I may have too many nightmares now...

The Gondor stuff and the Ent look great, I certainly could never spend that kind of time on rank-and-file WoMT (I do have another Warband to go through for next month) but the results speak for themselves!

With the 12='20' basing method, how many minis would you say was needed for a decent game of KoW? Does it play alright with maybe half a dozen units that size a side, or would you need a lot more?

Damn. I feel like I really missed out by not ever playing LotR. I always heard great things about it but by the time I broke up with 40k no one really played it anymore. Well to be fair I don't think it ever had much of a strong following in the States anyway.

A boxed skirmish game like that of plastic models would really strike my fancy these days.

Maybe I can snag something off the ole' ebays.

BA - You'll just have to suck it up and live with the fact that other people on the other side of the world who you'll never interact with aren't doing things the way that you would. You'll also have to live with the fact that I've got way more models than you lost in that storage shed, and as such, I'll never paint them all, and that it would be a huge waste of my key resource - that is TIME - not money - to paint essentially the same models twice with slightly different bases to play a couple of different games. Furthermore, I strongly prefer the aesthetic of individual round bases, and SHOCK HORROR have been rebasing my old Warhammer models from squares to rounds. Aside from that, the older GW LotR figures are far from "cheap" on eBay as well as resellers move their prices in line with GW's and options in Australia are severely more limited than in the US.

Hopefully this helps you "get" my choice. If not, I don't want to fething hear about it and I certainly don't want to have you gaking up my thread with this kind of irrelevant criticism. By that token, if you feel a driving need to tell me how anything that I show here is "wrong" like the cacti in the other thread, feel free to not post at all, because if I want your particular brand of constructive criticism, I'll ask for it. When the only comment you bother to make on the stuff that I show here is to criticise my basing style, then it is very much going to devalue your opinions. So please play nice so we can have civil discussions and talk about LotR and miniature-related things.


Strombones - it's reasonably easy to download the rules, and as our charming and socially-skilled friend points out, a lot of the same models are reasonably easily acquired on eBay still, and a lot cheaper than the boxed sets would cost these days. There are also a lot of historical figures that work perfectly for other factions.

Paradigm - You could certainly get 600+ points going with those kinds of numbers, which is small but a good start and very playable - good to learn the game mechanics in fact. Remember as well that you can easily ally armies using the KoW rules, so, say Gondor+Rohan, or Orcs+Goblins etc. Having 12 models to an element (rather than 20) helps as well.

Anyway, here's another model.

Very nice once more! Is that the plastic Gandalf from MoM? I keep meaning to grab those figures if I see them at a reasonable price, but ever since GW raised the price to be their most expensive single sprue (about £37, dread to think what that would be in AU) even Ebay is no good.

My thinking for KoW-conversion, triggered by your 12=20 basing idea, was that it would be easy enough to transfer a Warband in LotR to a Regiment in KoW, so would give me a faster-playing game that would still let me use the full scope of stuff I had but without getting bogged down in the minutae of 100ish models at once. I may well try it out, or even look at home-editing the best bits of LotR SBG and KoW together (taking Heroic Stats, Priority ect and mixing it with the simple KoW unit mechanics and Morale system. Would be quite some work, but could be fun)

That's the Gandalf from the initial metal Fellowship of the Ring box, so pretty much the first released sculpt of Gandalf from the "new" GW licence.

The main thing that KoW misses out on is the scope (and number) of heroes in SBG. If you want a more "SBG" style game, I'd recommend by starting with the "proper" KoW rules, but removing the restrictions on heroes, and going through the various army lists to find profiles (with their points costs) that you feel fairly fit the various heroes, rather than strictly sticking with the ones given for the army.

I've sort of done similar with my WIP Gondor army - Human archers are garbage, so for my Rangers of Gondor/Grey Company I'm using "Elf Scouts" stats and point costs (but with the Kingdoms of Men "army special rule", and also using "Elf Cavalry" for SKoDA in the same way. Technically/RAW I can do this anyway, but they'd have the "Elf" army special rule (Elite), and not benefit from human leadership or banners.

I "balance" this by disallowing huge chunks of the KoM list - anything that doesn't fit the Gondor force, so nothing approximating Ogres, fanatics, or gunpowder weapons/artillery, etc.

It's simply needless, irrelevant, said in a critical manner "I can see it for expensive models, but these are available cheaply"and also rather rude - as is your "defensive much?" attempt to further provoke. As I said - when your only comment is to disparage the basing, then I find your intent suspicious at best. Now please refrain from further attempting to derail this thread. Thank you kindly.

KoW does sound interesting, especially as I have hordes of minis that wouldn't work in standard SBG. Might check it out, thanks for the heads up!

By all accounts the KoW rules are pretty awesome, I've yet to try them myself but they seem good on paper. The thing that may not seem 'right' at the start is the idea that you don't ever remove models, 'casualties' simply add tokens that make a unit more likely to Break or Flee. In other words, your unit will remain at 'full strength' until is is removed, which can seem odd but does speed up play, and keeps the battle looking epic with troop blocks everywhere.

To be honest, it's probably a better way to do large-scale LotR battles than WotR is. As Az point out, the only issue is a lack of heroes and some units, but it's easy to house-rule.

And in case you weren't aware, the full rules are FREE from Mantic:

Yeah, it sounds like Hail Caesar with the tokens. The thing i don't like about WFB is all the empty trays that appear when units die! However, For WotR I make little dead counters to fill in the dead slots as this is more aesthetically pleasing for me... Yet to fully try this token system but it sounds interesting. Also as pointed out you don't need to worry as much about the number of models you have for each tray.

Free rules! Must be good! . Will check 'em out to see what they're like, sounds good though.

Thank you. The colours I used for Gandalf here are very much "inspired by" the PJ films, in that the actual grey would/should be shaded into black and ave a hint of brown in it, rather than the blur-grey I used here. Likewise the hilt of Glamdring would be a little duller, but both changes make it a nicer (and cleaner-looking) model, at least for my own taste.

I haven't done any proper "write-ups" of battle reports, but I do have a couple of simple batreps here:
https://azazelx.wordpress.com/2014/07/10/8-player-kings-of-war-battle-report/
https://azazelx.wordpress.com/2014/04/15/war-room-the-grand-opening-and-some-games-got-played/

Actually it was playing KoW is what's motivated me to properly get larger numbers of minis painted. The Gondor force started off as just the initial 24 models supplemented by a second (half-finished) box before I started to make them a proper thing in KoW. Now there are quite a lot more of the little blighters done. My initial two armies for it were Elves (using my old High Elves) and Ogres (using my older models). Neither are finished, of course - and multiplayer games combined with "more people are coming for a big game, what do I have painted?" meant that a small Undead force as well as the Gondor army came to the fore. They also motivated me to crack open a bunch of Confrontation prepaints and turn those into an army, and then to do that a second time.

Currently my Wife's Undead army is led by The Mouth of Sauron and features a lot of Oathbreakers/Army of the Dead, as can be seen in the BR.

Basically - free rules and army lists. Element (regiment base) -based rather than individual mini-based (so no removing casualties). Plays quick and easy, but has a nice tactical depth to it as well. And then pick the list that you like, and proxy figures for the official ones to your heart's content - especially given that the rules were originally made to not only allow but encourage people to use their existing WHFB armies to get the game to critical mass. Once 2nd edition comes out in a few months with some streamlining and QoL changes (rather than the core of the game) the design team will be making some "unofficially official" army lists for other WHFB races, which just gives people like us more flexibility in which list we use for our own forces. The Kingdoms of Men (KoM) list is designed to be pretty flexible and cover anything from Empire and Bretonnia to Greeks and Romans to Yorkists and Lancastrians. The ally rules make it even more flexible as to what you include, and playing friendly games makes it more flexible yet again in terms of adding units that serve the models in the army.

We just use D10s to keep track of the wounds, but yeah - same difference. Free rules were (and still are) essentially part of their marketing effort. Wanting to be a competitor to WHFB (and sell your own models) needs to get people playing first. Hence - making the first wave of Army lists WHFB-compatible, and the rules free, so disaffected WHFB players are more willing to give it a go. I mean, most of my models that are on the table are still from GW at this stage, and while I have a bunch of Mantic's Undead and Ogres, only a few are on the table compared to my old WHFB models, etc. They're still not in a position where they can force people to buy their rules, though you could buy the hardcover until they sold the last of them - hence the newest KS, and all indications are they they will keep the rules free for the foreseeable future.

Thank you. The Gandalf is one of the better versions of the character from the line. There's a "Rivendell" Gandalf that came much later, but perhaps the sculptor was different (not the Perrys) or maybe they were just having an off day. The initial Fellowship metal box are probably the best (IMO) versions of many of the characters - probably because the level of oversight at that stage of the licence would have been pretty severe - especially with the "flagship" figure box of the entire trilogy.

You might want to look into the official SBG scenario books, if you can find them. They feature quite a number of scenarios based on the books rather than the films as well as the ones seen in the films. So you have the option to have either Arwen or Glorfindel running from the Ringwraiths and taking Frodo across the Bruinen Ford. There are scenarios involving Tom Bombadil and Goldberry, the Barrow-Downs and so on. For larger battles in the later films they offer both suggested forces as well as "values" to build your own, so if you want to remove Elves from Helm's Deep, it's a doddle to do so. While I'm sure you're capable of making your own scenarios, the books certainly can provide a nice base and inspiration for ideas. I understand that the DeAgnosti/GW magazine from years ago went very much down that road as well, especially once they got past the initial hubbub of the films' releases.

Again - not strictly speaking LotR models, these scenic items are (most of) the Citadel Siege Attackers and Defenders sets from the re-released HIPS Mighty Fortress whenever that was - probably the mid-1990s. I'll be using these alongside the fortress and other various castle-like objects when playing LotR Sieges. The grate is from Grendel, and will also be a pretty integral part of any Helms Deep scenarios, if you see what I mean...

Very nice terrain!

Regarding the Fellowship figures, that FotR Gandalf is one of the nicest (and the mounted one that I think was released around the same time is amazing, shame it now goes for upwards of £50 on ebay!). I'm still partial to the Khazad-dum one sans hat and in perhaps a more iconic pose ("You shall not pass!"), but that one is a close second.

@BeAfraid: Are there any specific scenarios you're looking for? I still hhave all the DeAgostini magazines and there are lots of book-based scenarios there, I can have a look if there's anything in particular you wanted.
