There is no mention of any Pike armed Orc types in the Lord of the Rings books. It was something they wee armed with only in the film , I expect for the visual effect.

i think four legged bears would be best since they can used as mounts or just bears, which i know a lot of armies would like to have them as cavalry

They were in the film to spread the under-recognised truth that the best way to defeat pikemen is to charge them frontally with cavalry over difficult terrain.

Well.....Bears have now made it onto my list of things to make......Along with absolutely SHED loads of other stuff. Shocked Shocked Shocked
I'll ask sir if I can do them soon. Smiley

Though I think the armoured ones will have to wait until I've made the 'plain' ones, to make things easier.

Getting them 'the right size' is probably going to be the hardest thing.

 Grin yeah - i suppose the LOTR films could have been worse. I was annoyed enough that the Rohirrim charged pikemen (well pike-uruks) in the Helm's Deep scene in the films, pikemen who had their pikes levelled against them, and rode them down. I was all "that's historically inaccurate, cavalry couldn't ride down pikemen" (unless the pikemen were disorganised by archery or spread out, or they hit them in the flank or rear while they were engaged to the front etc)

Stuff I learned form Lord of the Rings films.

1. Besieging a fortress - bring Pikes.
2. Attacking pikes - send horsemen downhill against their front - steeper the better.
3. Orc henchmen are terrified by shadow-puppets.
4. Dark lord with a massive trollkind thrall - leave it at home on door winding duty.
5. Use gunpowder only once, revert to battering rams for every following siege.
6. G-g-g-g-hosts!!!!!

7.  10, 000 = irresistible host that will bring about a new Darkness without end.
8.  Correct use of air superiority - use it exclusively on rescue missions.
9.  Correct function of scout - immediate impetuous attack.
10. Tactical response to being outnumbered, with steep mountains on both flanks - contract line to allow enemy to surround one, and adopt a solid formation to prevent most of one's force from hitting anyone.
11. Shields are for flapping unused at one's side, never for blocking or deflecting an attack.
12. If elephants are far bigger than usual, horses cease to be afraid of them.
13. Lines from the novel should if possible be included in different contexts where they make no sense (mind you, this happens in the James Bond movies too, not to mention the Nibelungenlied).

To be fair, the charging cavalry coming out of the sunrise are lead by the equivalent of an archangel!

Are they lead? I thought they looked like resin.
