Bilbo's Birthday Army

So I am once again playing in the Bilbo's Birthday Bash Tournament.  I am yet again playing a new army.  Since 2008, when I started playing in tournaments I have only once played the same army, that was last year when I played Dwarf Rangers in both B3 and the Adepticon singles tournament.  Now I don't travel as much as some of the other players but I still pride myself on having a different army at each event. This keeps it fun for me, while I like to win, I don't want to play with the same army and just tweek it over a period of time to make it stronger.  Many of the lists I use in tournaments are models that I already have.  Sometimes I have to purchase a few just to finish out what I have written down.  

Here is a few preview pics of what I will be bringing to Bilbo's Birthday
The Fifedoms
Knight of Dol Amroth

Axeman of Lossanarch

Ranger of Gondor

Clansman of Lamedon

These are just preview pics and I am sure I will find touch ups on them.  Not sure yet about the bases either.  Prince Imrahil will be leading the way along with some Knights of Dol Amroth on Horseback.

Let the Painting Begin

After a long hard day of building the models for this competition, here are the models I have committed for this month.  Still have some green stuffing to do. 

Eomer Marshall of the Riddermark.
Three Rohan Royal Guard.

While I have always used GW paints, I am going to try and used mostly Reaper and Valejo paints in this project.  Looking for different shades of tans and browns for the leather armor.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. 
Keep reading and I hope to have some pics of painted stuff in the next week or so.
