Well congrats! I was in the same boat I love the minis but not alot of people seem to play it. I took the plunge and went with Fallen kingdoms. Cheers and may you have fun with LOTR tabletop.



So I am growing my enemy.....so what I gotta kill something.

Yes you can 2. how does the whole ally thing work You select a hero as you would for the rest of your army, and then take the warriors from their army list 3. what is the limt of chatecters/units in the game 12 warriors per hero 4.what army llists work for the kingdom of men. All of them work, just in different ways, it largely depends on your playstyle, what you like the looks of (all the normal things for every game system really) thank you for your time bothering to read my postno problem. anyother information about lord of the rings amrys would be fantastic i saw a thread that was uncompleted about this certain topic but nm also by doing this i can then take some of the information back to the hobby club and encourge other people to play lord of the rings :D.

While I haven't got the Kingdoms of Men book, the rules are mainly the same as before, so here's an idea of a 595 point army list you could have:

Eomer, with Shield and Horse
12 Riders of Rohan (4 with Throwing Spears)

Erkenbrand with Horse
12 Warriors of Rohan (6 with Throwing Spears and Shields, 6 with Shields)

Captain of Rohan with Shield
12 Warriors of Rohan (6 with Throwing Spears and Shields, 5 with Shields, 1 with Banner)

I hope this helps in some way

Well his army is incredibly small, although elite, and you'll have to add stuff to get to 1000 - my suggestion is Grimbold and some Helmingas, and definitely more archers.

You'll want to shoot his Trolls/Dweller in the Dark first - statistically 36 shots will kill these (1/2 hit, 1/6 wound (not counting throwing weapons)), before using your throwing weapons (especially mounted) to kill his Dweller then Dragon - this will break his army and eventually his Dragon will flee (especially if you wound it a couple of times). Then you can just surround his Balrog and kill it with a war of attrition - it is possible, I have killed a Balrog in a 500 point battle before.
