Default New player! Help with first tourney list!

Hey all, I've slowly been jumping into LotR, and I absolutely love the game. I've played 40k for a few years, and still enjoy it, but I love the combat system of LotR.

I have my first tourney that I'll be playing in next month. It'll be 600pts. My army consists of Warriors of Minas Tirith, and I'm trying to keep my entire army Minas Tirith. I currently have 16 sword and shield models, 16 spear and shield models and 16 models with bows. I will be picking up one Avenger Bolt Thrower box in the next week or two, as well as several Citadel Guard archers.

I know I want one Avenger Bolt Thrower, and all bow wielding models that I can fit into my list will be Citadel Guard archers with Elven bows. I am not a fan of cavalry (yes, I know they are awesome), so with that being said, can anyone give me any solid list ideas?

I also enjoy using generic captains as my leaders. I try to avoid expensive, named characters, because I would prefer having the extra models on the board, instead of one really tough model.

Thanks guys

Well Yeah Cavalry is gold for my Isengard army list. But with that said, you have a nice range army here. I would be worried for you from charges. But a nice line of defence like a spear wall. Your shooters should be nicely protected. Well it is a low point game but look into some heroes you would like at less a capt to add.
