These are 28mm Isengard Uruk-Hai warriors from Games Workshop. I've been puttering away at this army for over a decade. In the last year I've added some much needed models, but more on those later in the challenge.
This entry is just six rank and file troopers. Five sword and shield and one pike.
Two of the guys at the local store built Helm's Deep. It's one of the best models I've seen of the fortress. Naturally we need to have a lot of Uruks to fight out the siege.
|Pike from the rear.|
"There were four goblin-soldiers of greater stature, swart, slant-eyed, with thick legs and large hands. They were armed with short broad-bladed swords, not with the curved scimitars usual with Orcs; and they had bows of yew, in length and shape like the bows of Men. Upon their shields they bore a strange device: a small white hand in the centre of a black field; on the front of their iron helms was set an S-rune, wrought of some white metal."
There will be more Uruks coming across the table during the challenge, but for now, on to other forces.
