It was a good game, I ended up playing against an alliance of Harad and Khand, the Isengard player did not turn up
Basically my list works how I had hoped, but the only flaw with it is that my numbers are relatively small. The elves helped my army of the dead win my fights but they are costly when one of them dies.
The army of the dead still are really hard to remove from the battle and the king of the dead backed up by the big lady 'G' is a winning combo. They win the fights and the king kills the enemy outright. Suladan and a chariot king both fell to his blade
The cavalry and storm caller help a lot against the cheap numerous Harad infantry, but they got overwhelmed by the enemy cavalry, not only being outnumbered but out matched as well.
Overall the new books seem to be pretty balanced but I can see evil forces having an advantage as the points gets higher. Also there is a lot more heroes and less troops than before. I like the changes and look forward to more great games of the sbg.
