Ground Pounders

Back to the foot versions of the Easterling Cavalry!

This is a substitute for the banner bearer for the moment.  I have a much more accurate one on the way...

Here are a few representations of the unit Captain...

And now for some more views of the Sorcerer...

Beware the Eye!

That was one of the things about the Easterlings that I thought would be interesting.  They are "True Believers", following Sauron willingly... not through fear.

For this reason, they are rewarded with the best weapons and armor.  They are more than a match for any Gondor pushover, which they proved quite often!

This would be the foot version of the command staff.

A little comparison with the cavalry versions...

And now with some 'regular' infantry.

Stay tuned for more!

Foot and hoof

Here's an example of the mounted and unmounted versions of a character, in this case, a sorcerer.

As I mentioned in the last post, it is entirely possible for a horse to be shot out from under you, so you must have an infantry style figure to represent them.

I tried to make this guy match up to the mounted version as much as possible!
