I had some more jobs today… spent an awful lot of it swearing but also went to the club… more if that later.

The shower thingy works (in a fashion) hot water pressure is so low that any cold over a trickle causes it to freeze you. On the upside four of us managed a shower tonight instead of us all fighting over a bath.

So after I threw myself in I managed to get some more painting done.

These are almost finished. The Uruk bows went a bit of a weird colour but really only the bases and the back of the shields to do, and the touching up of all of the bits I missed (but that goes without saying… it’s a standard).

So this afternoon three of us had a go at Journeys in Middle Earth.

In the party were, Legolas, Gimli and Beravor (a ranger). We played the first mission. This was simple… hunt the wilds for some pesky bandits. We managed to sort of achieve our aims. We located the bandit camp, but unfortunately we took too long and they saw us coming. We did a lot of things wrong and had to redo things when we realised our error, but we all enjoyed it. When the adventure ended Gimli was down to his last ‘hit point’ and Legolas was about to be eaten by a Wild Warg. Beravor was, I think, up a tree looking for signs of the camp. Luckily that was what we needed to end the session.

Hopefully tomorrow I can get the Uruk finished…. then I am in a quandary… Finish off the Marines, paint 15mm Samurai or make a start on these…

In the box are the heroes of Helms Deep as well as the full Fellowship set…

Or a further option is make a start on the undead GW nasties.

I shall decide tomorrow…

  1. The Uruk-Hai look great! Can’t wait to see them finished.

    You have a good dilemma on your hands with what to paint next πŸ™‚ I love samurai so I will look forward to them. The Helm’s Deep set has some models with intricate details so you may want to paint a couple and then take a break and do something a bit easier. You really can’t go wrong with any of your options though, I don’t think!

      1. Your Aztec figures and posts did inspire me to buy the Osprey Tenochtitlan Campaign book, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading! πŸ™‚ So no pressure! πŸ˜‰ Otherwise, Fellowship Of The Ring figures might be good to paint!
