Orcs are the foulest creatures to walk Middle-earth. They are evil-hearted monsters that rejoice in slaughter and destruction. The Orc's natural aggression makes them the perfect tool of evil intent, their numberless hordes forming the core of the Mordor army. While they're individually cowardly, they gain strength through numbers - a mass of Orc warriors can be a terrifying sight for any enemy of the Dark Lord.
Saruman The White & Grima
Once the leader of the Council of the Wise, and the eponymous head of the White Council, Saruman the White allowed himself to be corrupted by the persuasive powers of the Dark Lord as he gazed jealously into the Palantír of Orthanc.
Once the leader of the Council of the Wise, and the eponymous head of the White Council, Saruman the White allowed himself to be corrupted by the persuasive powers of the Dark Lord as he gazed jealously into the Palantír of Orthanc. In so doing he embarked on a road that would see him stripped of his nobility and twisted into a treacherous parody of a true Istari. So aligned, he turned his prodigious intellect to building an army to rival the Dark Lord’s own. What Saruman hoped to ultimately gain from his betrayal is shrouded in mystery, but he nonetheless used his magical knowledge against his former friend Gandalf the Grey and, in a stroke, sentenced thousands to die by fire and sword as his legions invaded Rohan.
Gríma is a man of Rohan who willingly sold his services to Saruman in exchange for promises of wealth and power, a despicable act that saw him inveigle his way into the services of King Théoden where he could cause the most harm. When Rohan’s need for heroic leadership was greatest, the counsel of Gríma was words of despair. So it was that a lord of great promise was stripped of his will to act, sitting indolent and oblivious as the Westfold burned. Though he is no warrior, Gríma’s strength lies in his ability to twist the words and thoughts of those around him, robbing even the wise of their heroism.
Saruman the White and Gríma Wormtongue make for a highly effective combination of sorcery and corrupting influence on the battlefield, perfectly complimenting the raw brutality of the Uruk-hai they lead.
The set contains 4 plastic miniatures – Saruman on foot and mounted, Gríma Wormtongue and a Palantír on a plinth. The models come supplied with one Citadel 40mm Round Base and three Citadel 25mm Round Bases. Their rules can be found in Armies of The Lord of The Rings™

Minas Tirith's armies are the greatest of all the realms of Men - disciplined, superbly equipped and led by veterans of the wars with Harad and Mordor. Each warrior in Minas Tirith's army is trained to wield a variety of weapons, from the humble sword or bow, to the deadly knight's lance.
Wargs are gigantic, evil wolves - massive and dangerous creatures with a cunning and carnivorous intelligence. Warg Riders scout far ahead of the main armies of Orcs and other evil creatures, spying out the land and picking off stragglers. In battle wargs swarm towards the foe in great packs, tearing the enemy down with bestial fury.

Greatest of the ancient race of Ents, Treebeard is immensely old and has potentially roamed the forests of Middle-earth from the dawn of the world. Since the loss of the Entwives, Treebeard has cared little for the goings-on of those outside Fangorn Forest, instead concerning himself with shepherding those under his care. Should a threat come to Fangorn, Treebeard will undoubtedly unleash his wrath against it.
Before the dread armies of Mordor can lay siege to Minas Tirith, they must first take and hold the port city of Osgiliath, allowing them to move massive amounts of supplies and legions of warriors. While the steward of Gondor’s throne remains in relative comfort, he sends his second son, Faramir, and many of Gondor's most trusted warriors to defend it against all odds. Will they hold the line, or will the inexorable forces of Evil overwhelm them?
Gondor was the most prominent kingdom of Men in Middle-earth. This battle-hardened realm was bordered by Mordor to the east, and stood as a bulwark against the shadow for thousands of years. While Minas Tirith was Gondor's capital in the Third Age, Osgiliath stood as its original capital, although the city would soon fall into ruin. As the War of the Ring raged throughout Gondor itself, many townships and outposts would follow in its wake.
When the Fellowship of the Ring was broken at Amon Hen, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli chose to pursue the Uruk-hai who had abducted the Hobbits Merry and Pippin. These Three Hunters tracked the enemy to Rohan, where they fought alongside King Théoden at Helm's Deep, before turning to ancient paths in search of allies – and Aragorn's destiny.
The Elves are among the most skilled warriors in all of Middle-earth, their prowess on the battlefield far exceeding that of Men and Dwarves, and Elven archery is unrivalled in all the known lands. Although their armies are greatly diminished when compared to the vast Elven hosts of ages past, their might remains enough to face any foe upon the battlefield.
Easterlings are amongst the most fanatical followers of the Dark Lord and the best equipped of all the warriors at his command. Unlike the rabble of Orcs that spew forth from the Black Gate, the armies of the East are well-trained and disciplined warriors that will fight fiercely for Sauron, who they view as a vengeful deity.
Sauron never turned his gaze completely away from the northern kingdoms – even during the close of the Third Age, the forces of Evil closed in on Dale, Erebor, Mirkwood, and Lothlorien. Across the lands of Rhovanion, the forces of Good rallied to defend their homes, their acts of heroism tying up armies Sauron so badly needed as the War of the Ring raged to the south.
The Trolls of Mordor have been bred by Sauron so that they can withstand the light of the sun without turning to stone like other Trolls. Even bigger and stronger than their subterranean kin, these monsters are amongst the most lethal troops in the armies of the Dark Lord.
