Angmar Battle Company

I decided not to keep nickle and diming the orcs... Here is my completed battle company of Angmar!

I'll just use the Mordor Battle Companies chart for advancement. I'm planning on a solo game this weekend. It's been a long time since I've had time to do any gaming, but this should go relatively quickly despite the fact I've never played these rules before. By playing solo I can take my time and look things up without annoying my opponent!

I'm thinking I need to build a couple more Battle Company units. The campaign rules can quickly see one side outmatched after a few sessions unless the groups split victories. I already have an Isengard force (3 Uruk-hai with hand weapon and shield, 3 Uruk-Hai with bows) painted from my original foray into LotR. I'll have to sift through my collection and see if I can build a contingent from Rivendell.

As I mentioned a few days ago, I have already set my sights on larger forces. Sorting through my collection, I realized I have a huge 1600+ point Angmar army from the stuff I already have. I can also build an Isengard force without buying anything more than a couple of characters, though I'd like to add some of the OOP Wildmen of Dunland. I actually want to use some of these for my Angmar force as well to represent the Evil Men of Angmar and Rhudaur. In game terms they will be Isengard allies, but in fluff they will be native to the north. The Men of these regions were related to the Men of Dunland so using the models shouldn't be a stretch (I already have a warband of armored Dunlending Warriors destined for the same purpose).

More on this project soon and I'll post the battle report for my game early next week...


  1. They look splendid, I'm currently finishing a Mordor army although mine are speed painted with the aim for quantity above quality.

    I have also reposted about Donnybrook using some more information as reply upon your earlier comment. You can find the link here: http://wargameterrain.blogspot.be/2014/01/the-league-of-augsburg-donnybrook_31.html

    Kind regards!
