Entry 6 - 7th Challenge - 11 28mm Uruk-Hai

My next entry is eleven Uruk-Hai from Games Workshop. I thought I had finished these off last year but then remembered that I hadn't painted the horizontal pikes because I hate them. On the other hand, we may be playing a Helm's Deep game and will need all of the nasty buggers we can field. I also picked a couple of captains up off of ebay, and they definitely needed paint.



This is the bunch of them. I already have this pose of Captain but they really only made a couple so if you have more than three you'll have doubles.


From the back you can see the shield design. This is from the description in the books, not from the movies.


A close up of the captain. I'm still having lighting issues. I like these models quite a bit. They really capture the movie versions of the Fighting Uruk-Hai which I don't really take issue with like I do some of Jackson's vision.


A better view of the shield. The White Hand on a black background.


Pikes. There is too much glare to see the white elvish S rune on their helmets.



These eleven will give me around 50 painted Uruk-Hai. Not enough for my part of the game, if it ever goes. I'll have to get a couple of more boxes.

    You've easily got enough for a good game of Dragon Rampant
