Small Scenics: Uruk-Hai Siege Bombs and Ladders

Uruk-Hai Siege Ladders and Siege Bombs

Another quick one today, and a follow-up of sorts to a similar post from last year. – My Apologies to those people who got hit with the draft of this the other day – I accidentally hit “Publish” instead of “Save Draft”. 😡

At some stage during our long, hot, dry March this year, I found two separate zip-lock bags stuffed with ladders from Citadel’s Lord of the Rings Uruk-Hai Siege Troops set. One of them also had several of the bombs in it. Given that I find summer weather a great time for spraying and terrain, large and small, it was time to get the bloody things done. So I did.

Uruk-Hai Siege Ladders and Siege Bombs

The job (I hesitate to call it a “project”) was on the wrong side of tedious, mostly because my OCD forced me to clean the mould lines off each and every one of the ladders, so I sat out on the concrete outside the War Room and listened to some podcasts for an hour or so while doing so. Then it was spray time for the ladders, followed by drybrush-a-rama the following day, and then a couple of coats of varnish. I’ve got no idea how or when I’d ever use so many ladders, but regardless, they’re done and dusted now and I don’t need to worry about them ever again outside of gaming with them. Maybe this coming summer I’ll finally paint up my Mighty Fortress(es)?
