AOME LOTR - Gondorian Soldiers

Today's AOME LOTR offering is the Soldiers and Scenes pack "Gondorian Soldiers" containing; Royal Guard,  Aragorn in Gondorian Armor, and Gondorian Bowman. 

Looking at all the LOTR offerings by Play Along Toys one can't help but think of all the awesome diorama making possibilities. In this set alone exists the potential for a simple scene at the Citadel of Minas Tirith or  the Great Battle for Minis Tirith. One would need more bowman for a big scene, but a small diorama highlighting this one archer would be just as nice. Speaking of diorama building, I came across the following website the other day. The gentleman has built a number of really fine LOTR dioramas some of which are intended for use in war gaming. Some dioramas utilize Play long Toys figures and some use the smaller scale war gaming figures but the techniques shown are good regardless of size or scale. Here's the link:

On that note, let's get to the photos - Enjoy!
