Uruk Hai scouts

I had sort of missed the fact that there was a second plastic set of Uruk Hai. Having only glanced at the box I thought that they had just changed the name of the original figures. This second set, of course, represents the creatures who've "taken the Hobbits to Isengard"! They should be used for the Amon Hen and Wrath of Rohan scenarios.

I painted them slightly differently from my other Uruk Hai using the colours from the original costume designs.

Uruk hai Scout Helmet

I've got another ten about half way finished so may have a go at them this weekend. I certainly need to complete a few more figures to get back on my painting target.

War of the Ring movement trays

It was a block of Uruk Hai pikemen that sold me on the idea really.

These have been hard to come by and I couldn't even get any infantry ones at Salute but I picked up some today in the GW Oxford Street branch. It's weird that the existence of the trays in advance of the rules is getting me back into the LotR again but it is!

Anyway, here are some of my Rohan figures entrayed.
