I've only seen a few games of it played but it's made for some quick skirmishes or big ger battles I'd you want. We've had only one tournament that I can think of but it wasn't very popular. Not that the idea is bad I think it's the whole LOTR thing that throws people of it. The mythos there is kind of set in stone otherwise it's not really LOTR.
Yeah I get that. It kind of sucks out the creativity when you have to conform to the LOTR fluff...I think with Mordheim you have much more room for creativity, using any model you want from any range, and giving it your own flavour.
Think I will just roll with Mordheim.
