More Middle Earth Stuff...HILL TROLL!!!!

This is a such a bloody great model!! Despite GW's issues, they do make some lovely stuff and this troll just OOZES character! It'll be a centrepiece of my Fantasy Dux  Evil army. I even painted it just like the GW scheme, simply cos I love the combo of browns....


The painting table currently contains a Saxon standard bearer and a bunch of GW LOTR Orcs... Progress hopefully on all these by next weekend, all being well, although I do have to get my Dux Bellorum bases done, as Salute ain't far away and I haven't even played a game yet!!!!

Very nice Andy. A lovely figure indeed and a great paint job!

After reading James' article in WSS I've been inspired to dig out my LotR collection and see what I can play. Tried a game of Saga with my two last weekend but I'm not sure they really got in to it, but they're keen to play some LotR.

Cheers

Matt

Thanks gents!

Matt - the LOTR rules are a great way to get kids involved. The basic rules with a handful of figures (not bothering with might, will fate, etc at first) give 'kill 'em all' type games which involve a lot of dice rolling. What's not to like? Once they've grasped the basic mechanics, the rest can be added as and when they are ready.
