THE FORCES OF MORDOR

Continuing from yesterday here are some close ups of the bad guys
Nazgul (Citadel beast and Asgard wraith)




Grond (homemade with various orcs and trolls)


Siege engines (Museum miniatures)


Siege tower (homemade)


Hordes of nasty Orcses (mainly Tin Soldier but also Essex, Chariot, Reaper, Asgard, Tabletop etc)


I was keen to follow Tolkien's image of orcs being thoroughly nasty, with skin as black as charred wood and eyes and tongues red. Very much like these chaps from the early film which are the best depiction of orcs I have seen, right down to the long arms and swaying gait and guttural croaking voices.

In among some of the units I mixed a few troll and Olog-hai figures for variation


next time we will take a look at the allies of Mordor.....
