This is a conversion I´ve made for my 10mm Gondor army using Pendraken figures (roman ballista and medieval crew):


It look OK besides Copplestone figures :-)

It looks OK indeed.

They look very nice.

I have a bunch of those ballistiae for my late era Romans – but need to get them painted up – your colours make them look very good.

One thing I have done is add a couple of washers to the base of the ballista to give it a touch more height, as they look a little low 'as is' to me.

What rules are you building your LoTR armies for?

Hi Fred!
I'm not totally sure, but I think I'll go with Hail Caesar or a Warmaster Ancients mod (only one base). Probably the first.

Hail Caesar is a solid choice – we used it for 10mm fantasy games for a couple of years. Our Fantasy mods are on the yahoo group, but most are pretty obvious – especially for LoTR were you don't have much in the way of battlefield magic.

That´s why I like it… and also because Trolls are basically elephants :-)
