A little note on - in absence of a true hobby-update - new army pics. These two armies were photographed a week or so ago. Misty Mountains is growing beyond its borders and a Balrog is still not even assembled due to earlier constraints with regards to space.
Characterful most oft' in wargaming (well, Warhammer) means exaggerated noses and hands as well as a funny face, and that cartoony character is fine in itself, but in Lord of the Rings, it has no place. So, when I say character, I mean character within the agreed more realistic stylistic theme of the Weta-production team (amongst others).
But back to the army: This loss of character is a bit of an oxymoron because this is the army that I most hard tried to give theme and character...
I am not entirely sure how to fix this with minimum effort, but some ideas are floating around.
Goblins aside. We can see the (finally) updated pic of the Rohan Army, also designed with War of the Ring in mind and with tidy company trays. I must confess that the trays are one of the things I like most with War of the Ring... it looks so tidy. Perhaps this says more about me than I want to know :)
