Song of the Rings
A couple of years ago the Lord of the Rings Combat Hex game got discontinued and the packs of “collectable” pre-painted miniatures flooded into discount stores all over the UK. They were dirt cheap so I bought loads of the things on the grounds that “they’ll come in handy some day”. Of course they sat in boxes for years and I did nothing with them.
That was until I discovered Song of Blades and Heroes from Ganesha Games. I’ve played a few games of this using 28mm fantasy figures and also the Song of Ninja and Katana variant for Samurai and it seems ideally suited for playing Lord of the Rings. So out came the old Combat Hex Games and I’ve rebased a whole load of them on 30mm circular bases.
The miniatures are about 40mm tall and are not particularly well painted. But they look OK if they’re put on decent bases.
The weapons on some of the Combat Hex figures are very droopy indeed. I’ve replaced the spears on my Rohan spearmen with ones I made from plastic rod.
Some examples of my warbands can be seen below.
