Alright, so we seem to have missed out on an "Orctober" challenge. Having just gotten back into things, I've completed 17 Morannon Orcs and I have 5 mounted Hunter Orcs and 2 on foot on the docket to finish up today.

What should we do for November?

Sorry if I'm stepping on any toes here. I've just gotten back into things with a Kijiji purchase and I'll need some proper motivation!

Could go for either Rohan or Isengard if the time presents itself this month. I have some Rohan infantry left and I'm expecting some Uruk scouts soon. First new models in a good 5 years or so!

I have to paint lothlorien and mordor this month. Just finished my rohan and my isengard is ready for a year now. So sad there is no lothlorien category but rivendell only.

Why not join in and paint Lothlorien anyway? This is as far from official as it gets, I'm just letting a few of you lads help hold me accountable to make sure some painting gets done! :-D

The reason I picked Rivendell is because the Fellowship spent the month of November with Elrond. The Council had just happened on 20 October and the Fellowship departed on 25 December, hence those choices. The Scouring of the Shire occurred 2-4 November (IIRC) of the following year.

Rohan and Isengard were just personal desires because I just got a load of them off Kijiji.

I just received some Uruks, could go for Rohan or Isengard this month if I have time. Going to use this thread as inspiration to get around to it!

Yup, I found the old Two Towers boxed set off of Kijiji. Not a broken pike or horse in it! It even came with an extra box of Rohan footmen and Uruk Scouts. It got me back looking at my old models, of which I've just painted 44 assorted Mordor Orcs. I'm hoping to get 'em based today and then onto either Rohan or Isengard!

As for how to break the tie, what say we just do it as a "Saruman's war against the Rohirrim" theme, so we can do whichever we like?

Sounds good to me! A diplomatic option that should ensure as many entries as possible. Only downside: it'll be more difficult to choose something to paint!

This is perfect motivation for me to work on my Isengard and Rohan forces this month. I just ordered some brush on primer - this will be my first time not using spray - and super glue to finish cementing the sand to the bases.
