Plastic Soldier Company MG42

A gift from friend and fellow Lardie Zippee who had accidentally bought them in 20mm instead of the intended 15mm. Button-counters, please don't ask me what cammo scheme this is supposed to be. It's a late war German cammo, ok?

Men of Gondor

The guys my Uruks will be taking on, the Men of Gondor. Nice, shiny armour on some, rather more "lived in" armour on others. There is a set of Mir Bros to lead them too, but they are apparently in a different box in a different part of my basement, I'll post pics of them when I find them.

And some others that I found while digging out the ones above.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

Uruks, sir, fhaasands of 'em!

All painted uruk-hai have now been given nice, uniform basing. Next up:men of Gondor. Meanwhile, I am painting Warg Riders as doing bases gives a very nice end result, but it is bloody boooooring work and some distraction is needed.

Getting your Dux in a row

It's finally time! Dux Britanniarum from TooFatLardies is here, or at least pre-orders are being taken. I have been waiting for these rules since before Rich knew he was writing them, when my group was using the Lardy card-activation system to give some randomness to the GW LOTR game. Dux is really a game about post-Roman Britain, but since much of Middle Earth was lifted straight out of that time and place, they should work for LOTR games with very few adjustments. These adjustments are being done by one of the playtesters as I write this.
Me, I'm busy sorting out bunches of LOTR figures that have been in my basement for years and getting them neatly based and organised to be ready to play once I get my paws on the rules. First out are a section of uruk-hai pike-men. These are the first LOTR figures I ever painted, some I know I did during lunch breaks at work in 2003.
