Shades and Hagia Sophia

   For those who asked me what I would do with the remaining two Myrmourn Banshees, since the first two I used as barrow-wights, this is my answer: conversion to Shades.

The two Shades

   I already had two original Shades miniatures, so I painted the new ones with the same colour scheme. I had one problem though! The bases of the Banshees are 30mm but those of the Shades are 40mm. Since I wanted to use the original bases because they were very nice, the only solution was to make a hole in the 40s and glue the 30s as you can see below: 


   After that I added some putty and sand to the rings around the 30mm bases.

Lord of the Ring Battles

   Recently, I played a couple of Lord of the Ring battles with two friends, "newcomers" to the game. The first was a free, no scenario - no points game while the second was a "To the Death" scenario game with armies of 500 points for each side. We had a great time and definitely we will play again soon!
   Photos of the first game:

   Regarding the second game, we played Mordor vs Lothlorien. Celeborn, Haldir and 23 elves against Shagrat, Gorbag, two trolls, 7 Black Guards and 6 trackers.

Soviet sailors part 2 (Чёрная Смерть)

   This is the second squad of Soviet sailors. Like the first squad, it consists of an officer, a NCO and naval troopers. One of the sailors has a Degtyaryov anti-tank single-shot rifle (Противотанковое однозарядное ружьё системы Дегтярёва PTRD-41), two sailors have LMGs, i.e. Degtyaryov's infantry machine guns (Пулемёт Дегтярёва пехотный DP-28), while the rest have SMGs, i.e. Shpagin machine pistols (Пистолет-пулемёт Шпагина PPSh) or rifles.

The Nine Ringwraiths

   As you probably know from my previous post about Barrow-wights I used only one miniature of the "Chainrasp Hordes" box. So, I decided to use the rest nine as the black riders, the nine Nazguls! These miniatures are so nice and creepy.
