|Rangers spring and ambush on Warg riders|
One of the great things about having a wargames room of some form is the ability to have games on the go left "in situ" so that they can be returned to easily when time is at hand.
Despite my very busy recent schedule work-wise my two sons have re-discovered an excellent set of rules that we very much enjoy whenever they come out.
|This is a great game system|
Games Workshop have released some brilliant games over the years. Bloodbowl and Spacehulk are two wonderful game systems which I still enjoy and look the part and in doing so, mark off two very important criteria in whether I stay with a game.
"War of the Ring" is another that pushes all the buttons for me. A wonderful game set in a favourite genre for me which has all the elements of grand scale heroism, epic feats and wonderful figures. To make it even better, the rules are so much fun to play.
|A view across the field of battle - those trolls look menacing!|
|The Perry twins really did a magnificent job on this range|
Both my boys enjoy the entire Lord of the Rings epoch from the books, films and now our wonderful combined collection of WOTR figures.
|Troll drummer urges on the legions of Mordor|
|The Grey Company|
|Halbarad and friends|
|Lovely close up - good job on painting this Lev!|
|The Witch King decides to leave his ride in the garage and march with some armoured orcs.|
The lads have so far being playing some spirited, dare I say it, "extremely competitive" games upstairs whenever a gap in homework, training, dinner and chores around the house allow. Here a few happy snaps of a game played a week or so ago. It is a great opportunity to show off a really wonderfully sculpted range of figures and so very much in the style which I imagined when I first read the Lord of the Rings all those years ago.
|Swan Knights of Dol Amaroth meet some brutish opposition!|
|Grishnakhs' trackers led by the hideous chap himself!|
|Great model of a Mordor Catapult|
|Gandalf prior to a Moria disaster and some Citadel Archers|
|More Mordor troops on the move|
|Warg riders rush at speed around the flank minus four companies that have been shot away|
Always love seeing the boys having a game away and enjoying a wonderful hobby and not being beholden to the constant draw of electronics.
