I too didnít know that there were Easterlings in 1:72. Now Iím getting interested in the scaleÖ

 You can see the full range on this site.

It looks like the set pretty much covers all the infantry someone would need for an Easterling army. Using 1:72 for big LotR battles seems more and more feasible.

 I would think another box or two would be coming from Dark Alliance for the Easterling figures.Another Infantry box with command figures then the mounted figures.

 It is a great range with only a few sets that are not upto scratch sculpt/moulding wise.

Your Easterlings look great (particularly the red armoured one), as does the Rohirrim rider.

I picked up a box of the Dark Alliance Easterlings to use as the 'faceless legions' enemy force for "Five Leagues From the Borderlands". They're a bit of a way down my painting queue, but your red-armoured guy is definitely going to be an inspiration!

Thanks  :)
Nice news, the bases for Fantastic Battles are arrived: 60x60mm square bases with small pill and round bases.
Now I could start to paint the miniatures.

Those look like a great way to use the figures for Fantastic Battles and for skirmish games as well. I need to do something similar for my 28mm figures at some point (might go for larger bases trays, though).
