Default Creating Good and Evil armies with LOTR and Hobbit

I have just started collecting a few LOTR miniatures for a weekly campaign event that is going on for a few months and I had a few questions about army composition.

I understand that an army needs to be made of various warbands, and you can ally from different lists provided they are all good or evil.

My current army consists of a Nazghul and some Morannon Orcs. I have also realised that Hunter Orcs from the Hobbit game seem to be superior (+1 attack for -1 defence seems a good trade off in my opinion) and would like to experiment with using the both in my games, (albeit in a very odd looking force) but I am unsure if Hobbit and LOTR armies can be a part of the same army?

Can I use an Azog's Hunters warband with a Mordor Warband in a legal list?

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

There is nothing stopping you from doing so in the rules. The only limitation is that you need to use a hero from the Azog's Hunters list to lead a Hunter Orc warband. I'd probably take a generic Hunter Orc Captain, as the named characters are all killed before the Nazgul reappear in Middle Earth, but you could take one of the named heroes and just rename him as someone else with the same stats.
