"The Board is set, the pieces are moving..." (J.R.R.Tolkien)

The Lord of the Rings commission is completed and I can finally put the pictures up...

Above and below are Games Workshop's Haradrim spearmen. In fact all of the figures are by Games Workshop, and though they are expensive to buy new I have to say they are beautiful figures. As you can see they are not on the plastic slot bases that come with the figures. The customer wanted them based on round 2p size bases instead, except for the cavalry.

This being an 'evil' army I went for darker colours. The artwork on the Games Workshop boxes has them in fairly bright colours. I think this is to make them look attractive to sell better, but I decided on black and deep reds. The only brightness comes from the armour and purple waist sashes. I have even painted some of the spear shafts black, just to add to the evilness.
Supporting the spearmen are the Haradrim archers...

These nasty boys should be able to make a pincushion out of the Fellowship. The photographs show a small sample of what is in the commission, there were 100+ spearmen and 100+ archers. Of course this horde of nasty fellows needs a leader...
More pictures to follow of Serpent Guards, mounted Haradrim, Half Trolls and Mumaks.
