Build me an army, worthy of.....Warmaster

The forces of Isengard are slowly coming together!

Here's a sneak peak...
Isengard under recruitment!
In the back row are (from left to right) Copplestone Castings excellent 10mm Half-orc with swords making up the Uruk-hai Warband, Kallistra's H-905 100 Years War Light Troops making up the Wildmen of Dunland, more Copplestone Castings 10mm Half-orc spears making up the Uruk-hai Spearmen, and finally Copplestone Castings 10mm orcs as the Orc Warband (these orcs will eventually make their way to the Angmar Army, hence the Iron Crown banner and shield emblems).

Close-up of the left side

In the middle row of the top picture are another Copplestone Castings mini, this one from the Evil Characters, with a banner taken from the Half-orc swords strip. Next are Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Orc Heavies painted to make up Olog-hai Trolls (which will later become part of my Mordor Army). At right are a mixture of Copplestone Castings 10mm Half-orc with swords and Half-orc archers. These have been cut off the strip and arranged to make up the Uruk-hai Scouts.

And in front in the top picture are Pendraken Miniatures ELM9 European Late Medieval Pikemen making up the heavy armoured Uruk-hai Pikes. I used two of the three types of models supplied, as these looked most like heavily armoured Uruks, after some of the filigree on a few helmets was removed.

So its coming along at a reasonable rate of knots. I have another unit of Uruk-hai Warband painted and ready to be based. I also have a second unit of Wildmen of Dunland and two units of Uruk-hai Crossbows on the production line. All the bases still need to be flocked. No mean feat that!

So stay tuned, more to come...
