Since my little project of making nice little army-lists with stats and specials (plus some minor tweaking of said stats and some rules) have gotten along quite alright, an idea has formed dedans mas cervaux: To reconfigure Forgotten Kingdoms into a normal army, called Arnor:
- Warriors of Arnor Regiment/Warband/whatever
- Royal Guard of Arnor, with accompanying specials and heroes.
- Messengers/Riders/Knights/Enforcers of Arnor. Knights, basically - and I knew the Perrys' Mounted Men at Arms would come to use - they will fit in reeeaaal nice with the Arnorian warriors after some just slight modifications.
- I will also lazily crowbar in Carrock (Beorns) and something else of the "fantastic" department of Forgotten Kingdoms. I guess the Hobbit Militia will have a place here too.
The remaining parts, Wizards and Great Eagles, will be integrated in corresponding (or at least somewhat suiting) armies. Like Great Eagles or Ents in Mirkwood. And Ghan-Buri-Ghan will just have to go fuck himself. Or his butt-ugly "warriors". Or I'll stuff him in Rohan. Yes, I'll put him and his "special friends" in Rohan as a legendary formation.
The painting of these Warriors of Arnor is the style I will go with. This image is likely also from GW.
Below: Found the image of an Angmar army on GW:s homepage - a homepage that has gotten better. A bit more content. Personally, I am not sure if they're there yet, so to say, but they'll get the hang of it one day. The White Dwarf really looked different, a bit more friendly - which was what they were aiming for, one can only assume.
There is still some things to do with my Angmar army and especially the Shades (x2) which aren't even begun with yet. Can you say that: " ... aren't even begun with yet?"
Ja, ja... next up: CAVE DRAKE! Wooohoooo!
