Loving those Druedain. I was always interested in those guys after their brief appearance in the book, and wished we had more of their stories.

May I suggest that you obtain 'Never Mind the Billhooks' as a rule set to use with them. It's all the rage right now, and it is designed for gaming the Wars of the Woses, after all.

I love the half-orcs.  Great contrast of the pale skin with the dark gear.   And while I don't think the GB plastics have particularly good posing, it seems to fit the 'not quite normal' image of the half-breeds.
Now what is this whole life of mortals but a sort of comedy, in which the various actors, disguised by various costumes and masks, walk on and play each one his part, until the manager waves them off the stage?

A pun that is so awful, I might just have to buy it!

Thanks again for the comments everyone. I think it's going to be hobbits next, or possibly some very old GW figures, or Turin's outlaw companions. Or all of the above.

Turin's outlaw companions. All Victrix plastics with some GW and Perry bow hands and arms added into the mix. I wanted to have them able to double up as Nottingham's (or some would suggest South Yorkshire's) finest!

That they do. Some of their WOTR helmets and more unpleasant-looking HYW weapons were invaluable for orcs too.

Fabulous! Just like the Woses, I always had a soft spot for Turin's story.

A few years ago a friend of mine bought me 'The Children of Hurin.' I didn't expect to enjoy it, as I gave up on those 'fragments JRR wrote on a restaurant bill' books years and years ago. They just aren't for me. But that one is different, it's like a proper story and everyting. My god, is it bleak and depressing, but it was so nice to have a new trip into Middle Earth after so many years, I gobbled it up.

I'm full of admiration for these, so atmospheric. I love your style and skill.
