    other scenarios a points match system can be used to beef up forces I mean come on if your going to have a battle have a battle The Rammas this is a rolling assault for the evil forces every time a model is killed it is replaced on the board edge it lasts 15 turns and could be quite an interesting little game in itself The Siege of Minas Tirith is another little scenario that whets the whistle played over twelve turns this could be a very entertaining and challenging scenario for both sides Again the possibilities on this scenario are enhanced by the points match option and these again could be doubled or trebled to make a large scale battle Next is the Pyre of Denethor this one is totally fictitious but again quite an interesting little game in it s own right again points matches can be used as an alternative although I would suggest playing the scenario as is first as this I think would be a good challenge on it s own then try the points match for the flavour of variety Now here is where we leave Gondor and head over to Rohan In the Appendices And yes it s back to Helms deep for the last two scenarios first up is The Defences Must Hold Initial forces in the scenario lack the umph of the books and the film and it looks more like a skirmish again points can be allocated to both defender and attacker to beef up forces and make them more sizeable in the points match game Last of all is the recreation of the charge by Theoden out of the gates of Helms deep again not as spectacular as the book or the film but still it s a game

    have a hole and after trimming of lugs and trying to remove the super glue from fingers and tweezers and get them stuck to the figure I gave up after ½ an hour having managed to stick two arms on successfully Thus I was left with 11 usable figures The second pack was the infantry pack NSC2 48 figures for 9 00 these were much better than the first pack only 8 rejects in total There were a lot of visible mould lines on these but they had all the right bits There are 2 variations of infantry in kepi and 1 in slouch hat The figures in general seem a little thin and skinny looking and the muskets seem out of proportion due to this Overall there does not appear to be a lot of definition in the cut of the figures for cross belts and other equipments Each figure stands 20mm from toe to top of hat These models could be improved by casting the figures in a variety of poses without detachable arms the 15mm scale makes this very fiddly trying to glue bits on Quality control obviously needs improving if 8 figures out of 24 are

    little item and I do look forward to painting it Pack Inuit 4 This pack contains two canoes and each has a half figure to place in each both the half figures are in the same paddling pose again another nice novel composition to paint Overall First Thoughts All the miniatures in the packs are nicely detailed The sculpting and cut on the figures looks to be of a good standard and all are in good lifelike poses The cut is just how I like to see not overly done but enough to work with when painting and folds and creases that give the minis a bit of movement which again adds life to the compositions Facial detail although they are buried in the hoods it is cold where they live you know is also done to a good standard and again there is plenty to work with Flash Some of the items have a little flash on them but this is mainly in the areas you d expect i e the bottom of the base Mould lines again are only present on a few of the figures and these ate nothing to worry about as they clean up well and don t cause a lot of fuss The only items I did need to tidy up were the canoes but this was at just one end where there was a piece of metal that needed removing but with a little care to keep the shape this again was easily removed the care you need to do on this is very important as if you don t take care you could spoil the look of the canoe Painting After the undercoat I did my usual pre painting inspection I always find that after the undercoat that is when all the
