Tomorrow after work I will be playing my first game of Lord Of The Rings in about 5 years. My buddy Stan has been interested in playing the Fall Of The Necromancer campaign (which is one of the last generation of GW Lord Of The Rings supplements) and it gave me a good excuse to start painting a new force for LOTR.
I'll be playing the forces of good, which means for the first time in my 20+ years of fantasy wargaming I am collecting an elf force. For our first scenario I need to finish 16 elves; 12 of the plastics from one of the box sets, 3 sentinels and Thranduil. So far I've completely finished my first 8 elves, Thranduil is 90% done and my archers are...less than done....but our game isn't until tomorrow so I'm sure I'll be fine.
If all goes according to plan I'll put up a second post tonight showing the rest of my force completed and then if I can figure out how to do it I'll hopefully have a battle report for all of you that are tired of looking at shots of static models sitting on my desk by Thursday.
Wish me luck!
Wood Elves with swords.
