Night gathers, and now my watch begins.

Decided to buy some dodgily-painted Rangers of Gondor off eBay, to create a sort of Nights Watch warband for Song of Blades and Heroes - I chopped Faramir's head off and replaced it with this one from the Gripping Beast Dark Age Warriors and replaced his sword with an axe to complete the "grizzled veteran ranger" look...

Of course, this meant that I had to create some Wildlings to face off against (picture was shown in a test post a few days back) - Morranon Orcs with some headswaps (Gripping Beast again) and a few Mordor Orcs with bows for ranged support. With 15 in total, I probably need a bit more support for the rangers...

  3. Looks like they fit the bill rather well. The LOTR figures are all prety decent and there'll be around for a while at reasonable pricess methinks
