I was not so fast as I wanted and still not VERY big advances, but at least I can show you a little unit of foot Rohan warriors (the original Title I wanted for the post was "Riders of rohan" but it was a little absurd, still without horses -Just for a short while :)...) and starting with fortress structures... I am totally new with scenery so lets see.. there is a good bunch of info in the web for developing this new hobby area...
First a little foot Rohan warriors unit which I want to use for an Helms Deep scenario ((they will go along with some archers, totally 4 units, and maybe also in bigger battle of Pellenor, together with horse comrades).. But still many figures to paint, and the total definition of the fortress ...
At least you can find here King Theoden of Rohan in first line of the fight :)
In a few days also a mounted unit will be ready.
Can you recognise the origin of all figures? There is a mix of periods from several manufacturers
For the first structures, first of all I got a very hard density black foam in my Workplace.. It is really useful!! And my last and great discovery: Some medieval Cardboard 3d kits form russian company CLEVER PAPER wich are surprisingly match to 1/72, very beautiful and detailed and are very easy and fast to mount, strong enough to be trnapsrted and stored, and even suitable for children over 5y old -.-
Along you will find my children playing a little with the first sample I bought; a gate wich can maybe used as Hornbug main gate,,,
10,90 eur at local shop in spain...Not super-cheap but a very good, resistent, time saving and funny product in my opnion ..
now I am trying to find more items cheaper direct by manufacturer, If only I could russian!..
Hope you enjoy:
EORLINGS, BE READY TO FIGHT!!!!
Here the Paper Gate just after mounted, tested with some dIverse figures...
Here the Sceavus Sons making also a "resistance test"
Night arrives ..
