Imperial Agents: Sisters of Battle (Part 3 - Seraphim)

I often start projects and ten let them lie. Normally it's because something else grabs my notoriously small attention, which is exactly what happened with this project.

Guilt eventually catches up with me and if it's more powerful than the obsession with the current project then the elderly project will get a little attention.

Guilt won this time.

It may be a little while before the next unit gets a look-in, but who knows; with the new Sisters release imminent I may get distracted from the Middle Earth stuff I'm working on (and simultaneously go broke).

Middle Earth SBG (Moria Goblins - part 5)

You know that bit in the "The Fellowship of the ring" movie where there are teeming hordes of goblins chasing the Fellowship through Moria, scurrying up the walls and surging across the ground?

Well, that's kind of the army that I want to recreate for my Moria Goblins.

My recollection of the book is that there are Goblins and there is the Balrog (stay tuned). Peter Jackson added a Cave Troll (stay tuned). Games workshop added a bunch more stuff when they wrote the game that just - as far as I can recall - didn't exist in the movie or the book.

So for my own army I'm planning to - as far as I can - avoid the GW additions and stick to the force are represented in the fiction.

It may well end up not being very playable or competitive. I can always add more later. No biggy.

I will have no choice but to add a bunch of characters that aren't represented in the book/movie as you are obliged to field characters by the army building rules (if playing by points). But aside from that I'm planning to keep it straight for the time being.

Soooo... More goblins:

Middle Earth SBG (Fellowship - Samwise)

My Gandalf model was feeling a bit outnumbered being the only "Good" model I possess amidst a sea of "Bad" guys.

So I've painted up another member of "The Fellowship of The Ring" to give him someone to talk to - Sam Gamgee.

Middle Earth SBG (Moria Goblins - part 4)

"More goblins?!? How many goblins have you got?!!?!"

You may well ask.

Pure rank-and file, I have precisely 100. That's a lotta gobboes, in terms of numbers. in terms of points, not so much.

Anyway - here's the latest batch:

Middle Earth SBG (Fellowship - Gandalf)

It's him! The "G" man. Gandalf  the Grey, Stormcrow, Greyhame, Mithrandir himself!

Well done GW - a nice sculpt and a pleasure to paint.

I got The Fellowship boxed set as a gift for a recent birthday and - whilst I'm not actually collecting "good" models for the ME:SBG I will put together a small collection of important characters.

Middle Earth SBG (Moria Goblins - part 3)

The breeding pits of Moria have birthed the final set of goblin spearmen for my growing army. That takes my total spearman count to 40 models. I have 60 goblin models remaining to do to complete the rank-and-file for this army (roughly 30 swords and 30 bows).

I'm finding it very difficult to source affordable goblin hero models, and since this game has a heavy "hero-tax" (you need at least one hero per warband and the max size of a warband is just 18 models) I need to find at least half-a-dozen heroes.

Since those nice folks at GW are charging £45 for 4 heroes and a drum, they can "go whistle" as the expression goes. eBay isn't turning up much either at the moment, so I may need to try to convert something.

Stay tuned.

Middle Earth SBG (Witch-King of Angmar on Winged Beast)

A "big bad" joins the evil force that I'm building up. The boss-man of the Nazgul - the Witch-King of Angmar riding on a Fell Beast.

Great model and straightforward to paint. This is another model from the Pelennor Fields boxed set.
