I'm a big fan of Battle Companies, by far one of the better aspects of the LotR hobby.

I've even written up my own Corsair Fleets Battle Company rules when they were released. Just gimme a shout if you're interested in them and I'll send you a link.

Battle Companies is my favourite part of LotR gaming to be honest, much more fun than standard games.

Regards,
Jake.

It's just a shame that GW have abandoned them, in a similar way that they had abondoned Kill Teams in 40k.

I don't believe they are on the Games Workshop website anymore but they could be found in one of the old White Dwarves, not sure which issue exactly but I know I have it somewhere (late 200's I believe).

There are some Battle Company links in the LOTR Resource List thread but I'm not sure how many still work (damn you GW and your new website).

I was also e-mailed them a while ago I believe. I will try and find a working link to them but otherwise if you're that desperate to find them you could always PM me and I'll sort something out for you?

Regards,
Jake.

I never knew GW did one for Corsairs. It's ok I have my own Corsair Fleets one written up and playtested to be fair so I'll go without thanks.

Jake.
