Fast forward several years to the arrival of War of The Ring. I really liked the simple campaign contained within the source book and quickly set about collecting the models I would need to be to play both sides of each scenario. That seemed like a simple and achievable collecting goal.• War of The Ring: Collecting Easterlings Introduction — Article by Thomas Webster-Deakin • • Ever since the Shadow in the East sourcebook came out for The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game I've been a fan of both the Easterlings and Khandish. shiny new things!') and never quite got the set finished. Once again I was really excited by this . However as with a great many of my hobby projects I quickly became distracted ('oh look.
From these paltry beginnings I would forge a red and gold force worthy of Sauron and crush the puny defenders of Middle-earth! Collecting the Army Now I'm not the kind of collector who plans out his army with a master-plan for victory in mind. However. These.as Shadow in the East still held sway in my mind. larger armies meant I needed to get my hands on a big army together to play games on the new scale. And then it happened: my eyes fell on Khamûl the Easterling and I was smitten all over again. I did the sensible thing and reviewed my entire collection of The Lord of The Rings miniatures to see what armies I could possibly make. On the other hand (or so I mused) it wouldn't take much effort to paint up another box or so of Men of Gondor. So.none of your fancy Haradrim and their big elephants for me thank you very much . enough to get a small army started and still keep my goals achievable. the first thing I did was buy myself a box of Kataphrakts and another box of plastic Easterling Warriors. together with the miniatures I'd started many moons ago. Painting the Horde • • The few models I'd already collected had been painted using the excellent guides in Shadow in the East. I find this helps me to stay enthusiastic about the project for longer since the building and painting becomes the source of enjoyment. I much prefer to collect a bunch of models that I like the look of. three Khandish archers and the mighty Khamûl himself. would give me forty warriors and six cavalry. This despite the fact that the sum total of my painted Easterling collection at this point was seven Easterling warriors. On some models I went to an extra level of detail and highlighted the gold with a Mithril Silver and Shining Gold mix but for most of my rank and file this technique was both quick and very effective. so the obvious answer was to do some sort of combined Evil force from Mordor and the Misty Mountains. and two stands each of archers and swordsmen. it would have to be Easterlings. finish the box of rangers and add a couple of Heroes and hey presto! An army of stout Warriors of Gondor could easily be formed up to defend the Free Peoples. Not to be disheartened. Fortunately the intervening years had seen the release of both Foundation paints and Washes and I was soon able to come up with a simple. Easterlings. Using this I was able to get my first forty models done good and quick. I'd already decided that my army would be restricted to Easterlings and Khandish models . a Captain. leaving me with a stand of pikemen. rather than a means to an end. above all. and then try and work out a force from my collection. quick method of painting Easterling Warriors. one Kataphract. The new. . that was a relatively labour-intensive painting method (at least for a ham-fisted buffoon such as myself) and so I looked about for something a little quicker for painting the large numbers my new army requires. effective and.

This gave me enough models to start playing and as I learned a bit more about the game I continued to add more models to my expanding army. including a Captain and Banner Bearer Four companies of Easterling Archers Four companies of Easterlings with swords. Another box of Easterling Warriors made sense. At the same time the fantastic new Amdûr Lord of Blades miniature mysteriously appeared on my desk (thanks. including breaking my own initial rules and adding some non-Easterling and Khandish models to my force in the shape of some Half Trolls and a Mordor Troll (but both painted to fit with the rest of my force).• Having quickly collected the core of a force and. including a Captain and Banner Bearer Three companies of Easterling Kataphrakts Two companies of Khandish Mercenaries with bows Two companies of Khandish Mercenaries Chariot Stand of Half Trolls Mordor Troll .
