What I did get done was some LotR Rohan models that I had forgotten I had. They had been on sale at the local shop and I picked them up for half price. I then promptly forgot about them until this weekend when I was digging up models to assemble.
|Five of the seven models.|
The models were three blister packs. The first was Erkenbrand, on foot and mounted. He has some pretty nice rules in the new book, allowing you to upgrade your riders in a useful way. On top of that I really like the model.
The second blister was Grimbold. This character lets you make your Rohan infantry suck slightly less. Rohan is hard to play anyway, but if you run an infantry army then you are a real glutton for punishment. This is another nice model.

GW FAQ'd the Rohan list in such a way that they are now playable. They are far from over powered but at least you aren't forced to pay for options that you can't use. This was my first army when I started LotR and they were always my favorite part of the books as a child. I'll be finishing this army up, and adding one more box of riders. Then it's just a matter of getting them on the table.
