The others waited, until now. In need to cheering up, and also in a slight hobby limbo while waiting for the delivery of Necromunda, I cracked out the Riders of Rohan and knocked them together.
Like all the other Perry Middle Earth plastics, they are easy to assemble and very screen accurate. It's simple to get a decent result out of them and I have to say I'm pretty happy with the result.
And yes. I did string the bows on the archers. Yes. I am aware that I have a problem.
I have, fairly predictably, bought the new Battle Companies rules from GW (skirmish warming in Middle Earth? How could I resist?). By my current reckoning I have enough to cobble together Rohan, Isengard, Moria and maybe Gondor companies.
