It’s been awhile since I painted up some LotR minis, but these guys have been sitting around half-finished now for about a month, so I decided to finish them off with a game pending this Thursday at Jeff’s Cards and Comics.
The models are actually part of a Warg Rider box set, and while the riders themselves aren’t finished yet, I can still use the Wargs on their own as part of a Dol Guldur army or alliance. Before painting these models I glued 1/16″ rare earth magnets onto their backs, near the riders’ eventual positions. That way I can remove the riders if they are shot out of the saddle (Wargs are a very rare cavalry mount that may continue to fight, riderless) or use the models as pictured, as Wild Wargs.
Wild Wargs are fast at 10″ per turn, but apart from a strength of 4, are very average in everything else. They don’t even benefit from the CAVALRY rules. The Warg Chieftain is a whopping 75pts(!), and can issue heroic orders, but only to other Wargs. Makes sense.
Wild Wargs: F:3/- S:4 D:4 A:1 W:1 C:2 Time to paint – 2.5hrs
Points on the table (1 Chieftain and 5 regular Wargs): 115pts
