Yes, we all know the hate that Uruk Pikemen bring to the table :/
I have seen a somewhat unpredictable, but brilliant Army if used right.... it composed of a Balrog, and LOTS AND LOTS of Moria Goblins. My frined in partivular who used this tactic, he just swarmed the enemy with Goblin's, and his Balrog just strolled through skipping and dancing, and cleaved his way through captains/characters alike, and i heard he has added a watcher in the dark as well... very niced themed army there...
Some of the Fifedoms can be fun, the Dol Amroth crew are pretty cool, pricey though points and ££ wise, everything is blistered apart from the swan knights on horseback (very nice and crisp looking army there)
The clansmen look great, 2h Weapons and wearing Kilts, what isn't there to like?
i haven't collected Orc's, but Standard Mrodor orcs are fun to play against, look nasty, but Morannon Orc's are better and they look harder. But what is even more disgusting is the black guard of Barad Dur, they're fight value 5 is nothing to be sniffed at, and they are the Elite of the Elite, very nasty to fight against, i like to shoot them with everything i have in my disposal (incase of Gondor, for every trebuchet i take i take 2 Avenger Bolt throwers ;) )
I've started my new Gondor Army now, i bought the warriors of Minas Tirith and commanders set, i'll get them cleaned up and i am starting a blog here to help try gather new interest, i'll be putting up new pictures as often as i can.
Plus for Reference is anyone is interested, i am going with the classic polished mithril look, and going or a Deep Purple cloak underneath etc...
