Lord of the Rings: Faramir's Charge

There was something haunting about Faramir and his soldiers riding out of Minus Tirith, valiantly galloping across the Pelennor Fields and riding right into the orc hoards waiting for them in the rubble of Osgiliath. A suicide mission from the start, it didn't end well.

This is another diorama I've been wanting to do for a long time. I took several of the horses and put Faramir and Gondor armored soldiers on them. They didn't quite fit well because of the armor around the hips and legs. It was good enough. Then I added the rubble from styrofoam blocks and inserted assorted orcs, goblins and Uruk-hai. Wish I had more bad guys with bows and arrows and crossbows since that is what took down Faramir and company from long range. Would like to think at least a few got close and there was some close quarters combat.
