Feral Uruk-Hai Berserkers of Isengard – Middle-Earth: SBG

Feral Uruk-Hai Berserkers of Isengard - Middle-Earth: SBG

Today we have a trio of figures that were actually painted awhile back – these were done for Orctober after the batch of Uruk-Hai Berserkers, but they were actually left inside the sealed tub of static grass/flock when I completed them …and then it appears that I entirely forgot about them! “Feral” Uruk-Hai appear to be a GW invention from their post-RotK series of releases, where they basically started making up a whole lot of different shit, vaguely based on the aesthetic of the films.

The palette for these Ferals is pretty much the same as the Berserkers. As with their brethren, there’s a lot of Uruk-flesh, accentuated by dark metal for their armour pieces and swords with a bit of chain and leather/cloth – and (once again) done! I also added some sexy Isengard handprints, and some Blood for the Blood God (aka Clear Red) to finish after varnishing. I only have the three of these, and with them not currently available (and AU prices!) I’m probably not likely to try chasing them down on eBay. They can fit in with the Berserkers as additional models, or in the instance that I want to run some Ferals, I’ll simply fill out the unit with some Berserkers.

    • Yeah, if I use their profiles I’ll just consider them to be more Berserkers who happen to be dual-weilding rather than using the big bastard swords. I’ll ignore their silly fluff entirely, though. 😉

  1. Not sure how they’d be in a fight, but they look like they can definitely cut some fancy moves on the dance floor! Paint job looks great, but this is one of those cases where I just can’t take the sculpts seriously.

    • They’re okay – because the details are fine they’re less cartoonish than they could easily be. It’s just a matter of “GW turns existing IP up to 11”, but they’re not as bad as the metal Swan Knights of Dol Amroth at least!
