Lord of the Rings - Forces of Mordor Gallery
These forces are a lot more diverse than the Good Alliance who mainly consist of humans.
Unfortunately the choices for the human allies are limited and I'm still trying to find
troops for these forces that I like. For the Easterlings I will use Man Orcs and for Haradrim
I will use Dark Age figures as there is not much in the fantasy range that matches the
All the figures are Irregular unless otherwise stated. They are all based for Fantasy rules although the Characters are mounted on coins for practical reasons. The unit bases are 40x40mm and 40x20mm (2 bases make a 40x40mm unit) and the coins are old NZ 2c coins.
Click on the thumbnails to see the full sized image. Note these are about 4 times large than real so it isn't very flattering!
Lord of the Nazgul
This isn't someone you would like to meet in a dark alley.
These are Man Orc cavalry figures because the spiky armour looked right. Nice figures by Irregulars standards
Gothmog from the First Age
This is a 25mm familiar from Reaper that has been converted by adding a flaming whip to his hand. I prefer my LoTR Balrogs without wings and agree with the intepretations that Balrogs didnt have wings.
This is a Mammoth from the creatures range with a few spare figures on the base. A nice model but I will replace this will some 10 or 15mm elephants instead for a more impressive looking creature.
These are Games Workshop Snotlings of which I had some spare ones lying around. They are a bit cartoonish and probably not the most appropiate figures to use. It looks like they haven't brushed their teeth in a while!
