Hello and Welcome to my war of the ring mordor army thread for tale of the painters project.
If you are not sure what exactly war of the ring is then read here. I am sure about 99% of yous have seen the lotr movies which have inspired me to play war of the ring itself and After a test game at the local GW i found this game to be very fun and One of the fast paced games i have ever played in wargaming. We played 1500pts in about 30 minutes and That was 2 newbies playing it.
Non the less i was pretty impressied with the game what i like different is there is no armour or invunable saves at all so no one is really safe apart when inside a formation and Kill your enemy first to. Cav and monsters are the killing machines in the game but even infantry can hold the line against such odds. The funnyist and proberly the most unforgiving rule is the charging roll even if you 1 inch away and roll a 1 its automatic failure which can totally turn the game around for you or against you.
Anyways enough of that short rant i am still working on my 2000pts list the now its proving hard with all the nice power formations you can take. To start me off i have bought a box of mordor orcs and box of isengard scout uruk-hia which i am going to convert in to mordor uruk-hia to save me some cash at £7 for 3 thats gonna be a whooping £56 for the 3 formations of them so £15 box set is better and cheaper.
I have decided to give my uruks 2handed weapons the bonus is nice and -1 fight skill will not really effect them when led bye shagrat him being f6. My first update will be 2 formations of uruks with 2handed weapons and 2 mordor orcs with shields i shall have a few pictures later.
Gonna end the post there and Shall update more later. Oh yeah if any of the fellow Wotr players could give me some advice on what formations to take,etc? I mostly thinking horde with few trolls and Some easterling allies.
I'm excited to see this, as I haven't really seen much of War of the Ring outside of White Dwarf. It should be a blast. Looking forward to updates!
Thanks Tekore my man i hope i do not disappoint.
Now sorry for long wait its time for the first update here is what consists of my first 200pts.
box of mordor orcs which has 24 figures 8 handweapon & shields, 8 spears, 4 bowmen, 4 2handed weapons, I shall only be using 8 handweapon & shields, 8 spears right now till i can afford another box to make up 2 formations which of 8 which is standard.
When i acquire another box ill be able to make 1 formation of bowmen and 2handed weapons along with another 2 formations of shield orcs next month.
Next was box of uruk-hai scouts my plan here was to save me some money on having to fork out for £50-70 on 3 formations of mordor uruk-hai don't get me wrong there awesome modals but with a little greenstuffing and sneakiness it should work out .
Now for some pictures of my WiP
Only a few minor conversions (weapons, Helmets to make the orcs abit more unique) so far i have still little more to do then basing and spraying will be done tommorrow.
Some work on my mordor uruk-hai armed with 2handed weapons so far.
Not quite done yet but there getting there i am taking my time with these guys i wanna do a good job with them. Now i have found the old shagrat modal from the lotr game here a quick pictures of the character in question...
Latest modal (On the right)
But i had ideas. Why not make my own version? so with some doodling on the paint here a quick preview.
Quick shot with shagrat and The uruks. Let me you know your opinions on my progress and I hope i some how turn some heads in to collecting lotr/wotr game itself sometime.
Cheers until tomorrows update!.
i have no idea if this is a strong list or not, but am looking forward to seeing your lotr army grow
Wow, im in the process of doing an almost identical thing with the mordor uruk-hai as im planning to get into WOTR. Great minds think alike . I'm looking forward to see how you do yours .
Looks like you've got some great ideas, I can't wait to see them flourish. The one thing I will criticise though is the arms onthe uruk with the flail. Are they from the marauder set? They look a little too big and muscly, even for an uruk hai. Your idea for a conversion looks fab though, keep it up!
Ill figure something out .
The empire parts don't look too bad. Maybe you could try some flagellant parts? they're smaller than the marauders and there are some sleeved arms that would look about the right size.
