Mauhúr

   Mauhúr is an Uruk-hai Captain, an instinctive, merciless and relentless hunter. His warband of Marauders are almost completely tireless, able to cover great distances at speed - once the prey is in their sights, there can be no escape. Mauhúr wears armour only across his torso, as well as armoured boots, and a short cloak. 
   The original model is very nice but is a finecast one. I have the blister of Shagrat and Gorbag, the kit where Shagrat holds the Mithril coat. I don't really like this Shagrat model version. I think it is very short for such a famous Hero! On the other hand, Shagrat War Leader model has the proper height according to my standards. So, the problem solved - I found my Mauhúr!

   I changed the Mithril cloak with a war axe and I gave him a Numenor Warrior's shield. As a named Captain, he has to distinguish among his Marauders! His height doesn't help, so I placed him on some ruins! Mauhúr now is ready for raids!
  

   Below you can see a Marauder, my Mauhúr (ex-Shagrat) and Shagrat War Leader!


   And of course the "family photo" of all the Uruk-hai Captains! From left to right: Ugluk, Vrasku,  a no-named Captain and Mauhúr!



   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

  3. Nice paint job. I like that you've given him a shield of gondor. Perfect to distinguish him as a strong fighter amongst his allies and foes.

  4. I too like the Gondorian shield. What better way to say "badass" than to take and use the shield of a vanquished foe. Well done!
