Completed Two Units for Wars of Orcs and Dwarves

Despite a busy schedule, I managed to complete two more units for my Wars of Orcs and Dwarves hobbit army.  The first was a pair of elephants with hobbits on their backs.  The hobbits came from Wargames Atlantic.  The elephants were from Reaper.  I decided that, since this was a fantasy army, I’d have fun with the colors of the elephants.

Elephants and riders. The howdahs were scratch built. The harness straps were made from electrical tape.

In Wars of Orcs and Dwarves (WOOD), large creatures are mounted on larger bases, but always a multiple of 2″x2″.  In this case, the two elephants count as a four-base unit.

The second unit was a unit of hobbit slingers.  They too are Wargames Atlantic.  I had trouble getting enough slingers for a full, 20-figure unit, so there are a couple of sergeants with halberds to keep them in line.

All of my hobbits carry “Don’t Tread on Me” flags.
There is a chicken on the helmet of the officer in the center. I think this was supposed to be mounted on a flag staff, but I liked it as a helmet decoration.

Gaming time has been sparse lately, so I don’t know when these chaps will get on the table for a bit of derring do.
