Knighthood, LOTR and 40mm Orcs
I realize the header is a bit cryptic.
I have started writing a new battle set of Medieval and LOTR rules to be called Knighthood and The Middle Ages II.
I am probably going hex based for movement. I will take most of the rules from Day of Battle but leave out all the campaign and Warlord sections.
I am really getting excited about doing some LOTR armies as I can now print them up. As many of you who know me I have a fondness, well addiction really to 40mm. So how could I resist doing an Orc army in this scale. I also picked up some Army Painter Speed Paints and am having a lot of fun using them.
As I am starting fresh on this collection I am basing them on 120mm wide by 60mm deep bases. In the middle of the back I am gluing a 1/2″ x 60mm metal band that I can place magnetic markers on. These markers will indicate morale, armored, trained etc.
I have 6 units and a leader done so far. My intent is to triple that for a big battle. I may have a demo game at the Huzzah Convention in Portland Maine in the late spring.
