Last Look at Angmar’s Defeat

I was going through my photos from the War of the Ring battle I played earlier this month–the one that spurred a battle report post (not to mention two slightly-over-the- top opinion write ups!); I found a couple decent pictures of some of my painted models that haven’t appeared in any of my other posts (well, close up, anyways).

(That and the burning hasn’t gone down yet, so there will be parts I’ll be able to recount with vivid detail: Angmar got pantsed by Scott’s Galadhrim!)
