We played our first game of War of the Ring last week at Matt’s, using his Uruk Hai and Mordor Orks. I won, with the Orks, although it was the three trolls I had that did the most damage. We got a few bits wrong here and there but it’s a nice set of rules, different to classic GW games and flows pretty well. We’re going to play it more in the coming months, once I get some more Rohan painted. What I’ve got thus far barely makes 3 companies… I do however have more than enough bases all ready and prepped, having bought many from Warbases.
Finally got around to taking some pictures of my 10mm Pendraken AWI figures today. The collection is almost finished, and comprises 12 British regiments and 3 Hessian, along with a couple of artillery pieces and some Hessian Jaegers. I still have some more officers to paint up, which will be based on slightly less ridiculously large bases, and also a few more guns. I think I could probably do with some more skirmish troops, although most of the British regiments have had their Light & Grenadier Co’s painted and based separately, to allow for the creation of converged battalions. Lastly I could do with some cavalry.
Almost all of the figures have been painted by Andy Mac, although a few are my own work which although not as good, is relatively indistinguishable at anything but very close range. All basing on PWS Steel bases using PVA and sand then painted and with MiniNatur tufts.

Also visible are some split rail fences I have painted up recently from the Baggage train. A bit flashy, but very good value for what you get, and a lot easier to do than making them. I will be buying some more as these will see service both with my AWI and ACW collections.
