Hey folks, my play group is taking a small break from 40k (probably till 6th'ish edition) and are looking at picking up LotR:SBG.
I'm playing Mordor almost exclusively because I want to field 9 Ringwraiths on Felbeasts. Or on horses... or at very least, 9 Ringwraiths...
As I recognize (after looking through the book) that this is not likely to happen for a long time due to a lack of money and the way the game is structured, I thought I'd pop in here and ask your thoughts on a respectable Mordor force that falls within specific guidelines.
1) I like fast. I play DE and GK Shock. If it were not for the Nazgul, I'd be rocking a pure mounted Rohan/Dol Amroth force. I really like the idea of a highly mobile shock force (thus the DE/GK)
2) I like elite armies. Swarms comprised of weak units just hurt my soul.
3) I don't feel like crushing. I don't know if Mordor is any good in SBG but I deal out more then my fair share of pain in 40K. So, I'd like to take it a bit easy when it comes to this game. Not that I'm aiming for sub-par lists. Just nothing too beardy.
4) I don't like Orks....their models are ugly....
Any help you guys can give would be appreciated. Oh, and what's up with there being no mounted Ringwraith model besides all the silly named ones?
Also, I was kicking around the idea of getting the 9 Nazgul pack. What is the viability of this vs buying the Mounted/Unmounted named models?
Thanks for all your help folks.
