In Search Of: GW LoTR Rohan Royal Guard


Well, two days in and I'm likely to fail Anne's challenge of not buying any more minis till 1/4 of what I currently have is completed. But there is a good reason, honest. You see I'm in desperate need of minis for my proposed Rohan army which has to be ready by September. I have kept the numbers low, 35 total miniatures, but to do that I opted for a good portion of Rohan Royal Guard miniatures, well because they are expensive and don't come with bows! Even more expensive when you actually have to buy them. I dug through my stuff and came up with 1 pack of 3 on foot which means I need 6 more on foot and 9 on horseback. So if anybody out there has some of these guys they are willing to give up I'm interested in talking. I'm quite certain that I can come up with something to trade for them if necessary or out right buy them. I'm not going with the throwing spear option with these guys so if you have them assembled and have long since tossed the sword arm then I can't use them. I prefer unpainted because if they are painted then I'm going to strip them back down to bare metal and plastic. Quiet frankly with this list I'm not going to win the tournament or even come close so I'm going to have to go after having the best painted army.

  1. I knew you wouldn't be able to do it! And ONLY 35? You men and your excuses. I only have 10 and zero painted, so I guess, when you break it down to per capita, you're doing better than me. But I'm not buying another one until the next batch comes in!!

    1. I remember reading that you had another mini on the way. Ultimately though I already have most of this army and really compared to my other armies 35 is very small. Maybe I'll substitute in Marines for Royal Guard.

  2. I know you've got those Marines that you haven't painted. I know it takes a lot to make up an army though. You'll buy them, you won't be able to help yourself.

    1. Very true, I won't be able to help myself. Although in this case its a little harder to find them at a reasonable price. The search goes on......

  3. I think I might have some in a box somewhere, my LoTR stuff is some of the next stuff that I'll be sorting.

    If I run across any Royal Guard I'll let you know.
