I remember seeing this figure a while ago and it was totally dismissed, now I see it again here:

Is he some sort of Uruk-Hai scout character or something? I don't see him on the preview models either.

It is a fantastic model and I think it comes from the Fellowship where the Uruk is about to smash Merry and Pippin and Boromir grabs the weapon in mid-swing and kicks the Uruk in the groin.

Looks like a conversion done using the Ork two handed model.

It does have the same pose as the Orc models...

Also note the Dundeling Banner Bearer. I'm pretty curious about these guys (looking for something to go with my Goblins).

Ah yes, the Uruk-hai who missed the "alive and unspoilt" condition in the Uruk-hai's mission statement. Probably because he was off trading in his standard issue weapons for the axe.

If it's a conversion it's a damn fine one, so I'm guessing it's not. Maybe it wasn't suited to production for one reason or another (like the fourth Mordor Uruk-hai). It seems like now would've been the ideal time to release it, if they'd wanted to. I'd really like to have it though.

I really hope they do release it - and it is part of the Uruk equipment list, so why not?

Not for White-Hand Scouts it isn't?

On the subject of two handed scout weapons,
The latest white dwarf says that the new Uruk hero Vraska or something similar has a new experimental weapon designed by Saruman. Looking at the model it looks like a very finely balanced crossbow with elegent blades on each side.
I get the feeling that this new crossbow is going to count as an elven blade in hand to hand.

Oooh... ûber. (That's a Middle-Earth über) I suppose if you accept that Saruman had designed crossbows, he could pimp this guy's crossbow. But I don't think finely balanced or elegant fit with the Isengard style... crude but effective and nasty to look at are closer to the mark.


Not for White-Hand Scouts it isn't?

Yes and no... Isengard's Uruk-hai warriors (of either variety) can't carry double-handed weapons, but their captains can. So this guy would have to be a captain, which would fit with his position in that picture.

There is actually a uruk scout in the two towers with an axe, attacks the hobbits and Boromir fends him off iirc..

Boromir dided in the fellowship, so how could he defend two hobbits? I think you mean the first film.

Yeah, that is the Uruk I was refering to in my first post. The model is in the same pose as the one in the film.

Primarch is correct though, it was the first film.

I think it's the metal uruk-hai scout 2 model

With the hands from a plastic mordor orc and a blade from a wildman of dunland, or from the conversion sprue, maybe plasticard...

messiah is right but in was on the fellowship at the very beggining of the fight the fisrt uruk hai to descend from a hill is carrying a two handed axe. this figure was named uruk hai champion on the LOTR combat hex game. So probably if Sabertoothgames did release it then GW is doing the same

Yeah, sorry, got the timing confused there..
