Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Armies of the past: Easterlings

My second Lord of the Rings army was actually the force that got me into the game: Easterlings

I expanded this army from the old Lord of the Rings version of a Start Collecting box, which came with about 50 models.

This was an army where I almost completed ignored the official paint scheme and went with my own.

This army also captures my move from static grass to tufts, and so the bases have a two-tone quality.

The first named Nazgul model released was this Khamul the Easterling, so naturally he led the army until an actual easterling general was released much later.

Remaining models

I had planned to add an Umbar contingent to the force, and 24 arbalesters still wait to be painted, along with two of the three models from the easterling commanders box. Love that embossed banner, but I’ve yet to touch it with a paint brush.

    This force looks great, and that Banner is just shouting out for some paint.

    This is a fantastic looking army and I really like the Easterlings too. They have a great design and its a shame they weren’t in the LOTR movies just a bit more. I will be looking forward to seeing how you paint the Umbar arbalesters. I bet they’ll look great alongside the Easterlings!

      I haven’t thought about these models in a while, they are now leading candidates for the next tray!
