Rough Riders

I've returned to Middle Earth to refight a battle that I lost some time ago as once again I lock swords with the Riders of Rohan.

I've completed six more Riders which had stalled at the horse painting stage back in my last glut of Middle Earth miniatures about a year and a half ago.

Horses always cause me problems.

However, against the odds, just like Rohan at Helm's Deep, I've emerged victorious.

And just to prove that I'm not pretending and just posting the same ones as last time, here's a picture of my Eored, led by Eomer.

I've decided, after finishing these six, that I won't be doing any more batches of Rohirrim as I find them a bit of a chore,  and this was why I was defeated last time. Instead, I'll be doing them in ones and twos inbetween other miniatures.

I've also got the War in Rohan book to dive into, and I'm going to work through the scenarios one by one  building armies to complete each in turn, so there are likely still plenty of Rohirrim to do.

Acquired: 112
Painted: 121
