ďOur arrows will block out the sun....Then we shall have our battle in the shade.Ē

Hello All,

I am reminded why my brain cannot handle large batches of models, but here we are.  Three glorious Gondor archery units and not a crossbow in sight.  The professor will be proud.

These are Old glory models and they really go great with the theme of the army. 

As always please enjoy and thank you

These are great Louie. You've done a really tidy job on them. All that leather edging on the mail... good work.

I've looked at old Glory Dark Ages stuff before, but was unsure of how they would scale with other 15mm stuff. Are they true 15s or are they big 15s/18mm? Thank you.

Thank you very much Old Hob

Yes all that edging drove me nuts.  But I am happy with the outcome.

Old glory is a good standard 15mm miniature line.  They are not small.  They blend well with Splintered Light and Essex. 

They are not Epic scale or 18mm

Spears, lots and lots of Spears.  That will be the last of the Army of Gondor.

Hello All,

While I might have been sucked into a warp tunnel and sent into the future to paint marines and bugs I will never forgot Middle Earth. 

The last regiments of Gondor are marshaling, these are the vast units of spearmen.  The bastions that allow the archers and knights to operate against the dark hordes. 

The following unit is one the veteran foot units from Dol Amroth.  While the Knights received the bulk of the songs and glory, with good reason,  these stalwart soldiers marched into the White city with the Price and held the gate along with the Knights.  They proudly wear the blue surcoat of the fief.  Which I promptly covered in huge kite shields.  ;)

Please enjoy and thank you

That's right MORE spearmen.  Let's face it in a Dark Age/Medieval army this is the core of any army.

The City Guard of Minas Tirith do not that have the same reputation as the Citadel guard.  Those guys have silver on their surcoats.  They are still one of the veteran defenders of the city.  These battalions charged out the broken gate when they saw the banner of the King flowing on the Anduin.  Following Prince Imrahil against the besieging Orc host.   

The figures are Legio Herorica from the crusader range.  Maybe one day they will return.  Only 24 figures left for Gondor to be completed.  Almost there!

Please enjoy and thank you

I'm enjoying your progress on these. I really like how you did the black surcoats on the last batch of Gondorians. Following on from your epic Battle of Five Armies game, are we going to be treated to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields in glorious 15mm anytime soon? I do hope so.

Thank you both.

Old Hob, I hope I can pull A P-field battle together.  Time will tell. 

We did a Rohan vs Haradrim pre-test, It did not go pretty for Rohan.

Re: Mountain of 15mm Fantasy (New 11/10/23 - Gondor is Done!)

Hello All,

The LOTR project started 4 years ago and now the last army on that list is done.  Number seven, Gondor, is done!

I completed the last two units of spearmen representing men that mustered with Aragorn in the South; once the Army of dead had cleared out the Corsairs.  They are the last of my Legio Heroica figures from their crusader line.  May they return one day.





The army musters.



In total 143 figures: Elite Cavalry (12), Heavy Cavalry (13), Light Cavalry (6), Rangers (12), Elite Foot (16), Heavy Foot (48), Archers (36)

It's time to sit back and relax and just add the occasional figure, here and there.  I wonder how long this moment will last. hmmm

As always thank you for reading.  Please enjoy.

Great job, they look excellent! The figures you chose, and their paint jobs really have that Tolkien vibe!
