Men and Dwarfs


 Here's the latest batch of 10mm stands for the Battle of Five Armies game. These are the plastic dwarfs and men that are included in the box set. Now that I have this lot painted, I can try out a few games against the goblin wolf riders and wargs that I painted a couple of weeks ago.


The men are inhabitants of Esgaroth, the town built on the lake in The Hobbit. I wanted them to be fairly rustic in colours, these are hunters and fishermen rather than fully trained soldiers. Even so, the spear armed troops get unified shields, it's easier to identify them on the battlefield. The banner is a house or castle on waves, to symbolise Lake Town.


The dwarfs I painted in my usual earthy dwarf palette - muted greens, reds and browns. Their flags are a stylised axe and what is supposed to be a dragon, though up close it's more like a rabbit! Luckily, at 10mm these are flaws only I can see. The three dwarfs on the left are Thorin and his companions.

Great stuff! I've long been an admirer of the Battle of Five Armies set, but so far have never ventured into the unknown that is 10mm. This may just finally inspire me!
