'Fellowship' from PaulOG: Find the Halfling!

I thought I would address this bonus round from the opposite side of the Fellowship theme, while also completing my Season IX Curtgeld.

This is Lurtz, Saruman's first Uruk-Hai Commander - destroyer of the Fellowship of the Ring.  Leading a small warparty of Uruks, Lurtz tracked and attacked the Fellowship in the ruins of Amon Hen.  While Lurtz was both defeated in his mission to capture Frodo and the ring, and killed in encounter, the Gondorian hero Boromir was slain and the Fellowship was broken.

This is a 28mm GW fig in their smaller (and nicer IMO) LOTR proportions.  I have used Vallejo Mahogany Brown as the base for the skin to fit with his dark tone in the movie.  As a Curtgeld figure I have refrained from the basing so that it can match the rest of the horde when it arrives.

Points wise that is 5 points for 28mm fig, plus 20 points for Curtgeld an adding the bonus round 50 points - that's a high yield 75 points for a single figure! :-)


  1. Lurtz was a very cool antagonist in FotR. I approve!

    I like the bloodied cleaver as well!

  2. Lovely interpretation of Lurtz! Nice hand painting too!
    Best Iain

  3. Grwat rendition of Lurz, the blood on the sword is nicely contrasting

  4. Fabulous stuff, thanks so much Paul. I love your brushwork on Lurtz, especially his skintone and the Hand and Saruman marks on his face and shield. Brilliant work. He'll be sure to make the heroes sweat in our future LotR games. Thank you!

  5. Great work on Lurtz Paul. I'm sure that I'll be cowering from him on table top.
