The other game that I played over the Australia Day weekend was again not what I normally play but something I have always wanted to try......Lords of the Ring. Scott has a massive collection of figures for this type of gaming especially 'War of the Ring'. The collection I have placed up today are only a small proportion of his Armies and I think Scott is able to field almost all the walks of life from the Tolkien books.
We played for about four hours this day and we all had tons of fun trying our hands at a different game with magic and the other races of Middle Earth. However with hundreds of figures - Orcs, Trolls, Wrath Kings, Wood Elves, High Elves, Wizards and Dwarves it did make for a very spectacular game.
A rather large unit of nasty wood elves...very hard to kill.
High Elves...I think
And loads apon loads of these rather nasty lot
Tough Dwarven archers
Orc Warg riders
I soon found out that Elves are very good at hand to hand
I also found out in the fight above that Dwarves are hard to kill and orcs without armour are died very easily
The Orc bolt thrower is very nasty when it it hit....when it hits
Cop that you High Elf scum...pay back time
