    Well, after a very long time, and much distraction and procrastination, I took some photos of my mostly completed Woodmen warband and their orc enemies.

    Alas the Orcs and Trolls were in the old vault when the window was cut into it, so they are somewhat dusty (on top of the gunge just from being in the vault). So some of the orcs look a bit weird.

    Anyway, here’s the first image:

    And now, a second:

    BattleofMirkwoodEadmundsBand.jpg

    Eadmund, son of Siugurd, son of Girwain

    When Siugurd was exiled by Grima Wormtongue, he travelled north to the old site of Framsburg and ruled there as a Northman Atheling. When the storms of war found him, he valiantly gave his life. Now his son Eadmund leads a band of Rohir cnaiths into battle with Sauron’s forces.

    Dagohir wades into combat:

    (I figure Dagohir makes a useful enemy hero in the Battle of Mirkwood era as well as the mid Third Age era)

    And finally, for now:
    BattleofMirkwoodWoodmenBandDefendin.jpg

    The woodmen warband defends itself.

    The plan is to finish off the last nine orcs from the Dol Guldor Orc warband I’ve been painting, photograph it for the Mithril page and then use the board for my Battle of the Five Armies diorama.

    After that is done (whenever that will be) I will return to the Battle of Mirkwood and focus on Lorien Elves. After that I may use a combination of Rohir warriors and Dunlending warriors (from the various Helm’s Deep themed released) to create a Beorning warband. I am going to say that the Mithril Beornings, swathed as they are in fur are the “bear shirt” warrior elite of the Beornings, whereas most Beornings look and dress more like other Northmen.
