Hobbit SBG - Wood Elves Army

The Hobbit SBG Logo
“Yes, they are elves," Legolas said. 
"and they say that you breathe so loud they could shoot you in the dark."          
Legolas, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings

LotR SBG : Fall of the Necromancer

The last few weeks I have been on a mission to clear some of my back log of painting... I know I am never going to get through it all, but at least I have made good headway!

Below is my 1500 point Wood elf army, with Thranduil, Legolas foot and mounted as well as 6 warbands of wood elves complete with command.

I still have loads of armies to paint, but I am getting there slowly but surely!

Hope you enjoy!

We welcome anyone interested in playing The Hobbit SBG, Lotr SBG, WotR or any warhammer/40K battle - why not let us know so that we can arrange some starter battles, like the one above, or if you/your club want to challenge us. We have all the LOTR/Hobbit SBG figures and LOTR scenery from the Mines of Moria to the siege of Helms Deep, snow fields to desert boards ready and waiting.  

Why not join our watch list for updates and look out for Easters weekend battle event... two days of fighting in the ruins of Osgiliath, Helms Deep and Far Harad, you cannot afford to miss it.

Feel free to email us to come along or arrange a game.

East Grinstead War Gaming club 

At East Grinstead War Gamers we often play Hobbit/LOTR SBG - both skirmish battles and walk through the books/films each Monday night and WotR on club nights.


  1. Nice work... I was playing FOTN last night...

  2. Cheers Scott, the old journey books are good to go back to for some fun scenarios, also glad your still dabbling in The hobbit SBG :-)
    I am painting my galadhrim at the moment, then woses and hobbit armies, followed by huge fiefdoms, Gondor elite and Rohan.... Haven't even started on any of the new hobbit SBG miniatures!!!
