Gondor Light Infantry - Procarz / Light infantry of Gondor
Recently, out of curiosity, I bought the El Cid: Spanish light Infantry box by Hat, 28 mm scale. I wanted to check the quality of the figurines. The price of the set was decent because 32 figures cost only PLN 35. The figures are made of hard plastic. After unpacking, I did not come across any scraps or annoying scraps. The sculpture of the figurines is not very sharp and extra detailed, but definitely enough to make decent-looking walkers. Light infantry is armed with spears, crossbows, bows and slingshots. I decided to use these models to create a Gondorian light infantry or militia unit. The size of Hat's infantry roughly corresponds to the size of the plastic figurines produced by GW. Hat models are slightly smaller. Is it worth buying a box with Hat figures? Personally, I definitely think so.
The photos show three spearmen fighting in light formations of Gondor. Walkers are armed with light spears that can be freely thrown at enemies. The fighters of this formation cover themselves with round wooden shields. Their additional weapons are short swords or long knives. As you can see, they are not wearing any particular armor. They are protected by tunics and thin hardened leather caftans. The figures look like typical skirmishers prepared rather for combat from a distance.
The Soldier with the Slingshot is the last figure belonging to the Gondor light infantry unit.
The squad consists of two archers, two slingers, three spearmen and one crossbowman. light infantry is a typical formation that should avoid direct clashes with a well-armored opponent and the cavalry charge on the battlefield. It can be very useful because the entire squad is armed with throwing weapons. In combat, a unit of such infantry should meet the orcs of Mordor. Below is a photo of a complete Gondor light infantry unit ready for battle.
