Hello All,

We all know the great cycle of miniature life.

1. Buy the Minis
2. Paint the Minis
3. Play with the Minis

With that in mind, we got to play a Lion Rampant game of Rohan vs Haradrim.  This was an all cavalry, and Oliphant, battle. 

Here we have the two forces facing off across the great plain plains (pun intended) of Pelennor. 





The fight saw heroic deeds by the King of Rohan.  He and his bodyguard routed an Oliphant then nearly wiped out the Haradrim king's elite unit.  Through multiple rounds of bloody combat both retinue were down to a few men.  There was even a duel between the great kings.  Which ended in a tie and was very disappointing from the cinematic POV.  The director was not pleased.     



But the charge of the Rohan king had left him isolated from the main army.  An army that seemed befuddled at times, as if under an evil spell.  Maybe a dark sorcerer was influencing the dice in the most despicable way. 



The king was isolated and alone with no white wizard coming to help this time.  Victory for the Haradrim. 

The game was heavily influenced by the abysmal activation rolls of the Rohan army.  50% of the army never saw combat.  Thier king was too deep in enemy lines to influence them.  A great game was had and I thank all the players for taking part.  It is always great to see all the work come together on the board.

I hope you enjoy

That looks excellent and like you had a fun game! Just curious which rules you used? Was it Dragon Rampant? In any case, thanks for sharing the inspiring spectacle!

Thank you for your kind words.

We used the current Lion Rampant rules, but I did import the greater warbeast stats for the Oliphants.  They felt more right.

Thanks for sharing this project! I went through from the beginning and had a great time seeing it come together. Fantastic collection. Good choices for middle earth. Love the Rohirrim and Haradrim and those Guthrie elves are second to none in 15mm, I would be all over them if I did 15mm.

Hello All,

One thing for sure the foot units go much faster than the horse unit. 

I present for your enjoyment two units of Haradrim spearmen.  I really love the style of these unit.  The front ranks are mailed warriors with each rank behind being less armored.  I selected the scorpion as their symbol to keep with the venom-dessert theme.  Legio herorica figures again, as mentioned before they are awesome. 

Thank you as always

More excellent Haradrim! Great work on them, although you may need to add to your Rohirrim soon to keep them competitive!

They look awesome! Can’t wait to see their doom (i.e. the Rohirrim)! lol

Great looking units - nicely painted and based. They all fit in nicely with the scorpion theme

Rohan will not stand alone.  There is another army after this.  I will provide one guess which one that may be.

That doesn't sound right, unless the horses are lame or something.  ;)


These are great, nice one.

LouieN, how do you make those nice bases? Are they custom orders from a company, bought of the shelf or scratch built?

The bases are Litko .75" x 1.5mm thick circular bases.  1" for the cavalry.  I buy them in bulk.   :)

The base is a Flock mix created years go.  It is a woodland scenics mix, Blended turf, with a bag of tiny pebbles tossed into the mix.

It is simply a White glue and tip into the flock for the soldiers. 

I created the mix so long ago I have no idea where I got the tiny rocks. 

Hope that helps
