I think the list looks great! I love solid themes that are also capable of winning and that is exactly what you have here. You are a little over the 33% bow limit set out by Legions of Middle Earth but I would love to play against a list like this. On another note, I love the model for Damrod.

He is actually spot with the bow limit, he has 28 models without a bow and 14 with a bow, this list looks great, i love themed lists they bring the lotr game to life and add more realism to the game, the fight in osgiliath is one of the best bits in the books.

Yes he's within the bow limit, you need to remember heroes do not count towards the bow limit.

As others have said the list is pretty solid as is.

Regards,
Jake.

Learn something new everyday. I thought that Heroes were counted as well for the bow limit. I stand corrected! Now I just need to find me a Gondor player to defend Osgiliath...

I have to say, Damrod is one of my favorite LOTR minis.! Good job.

to be honest, i think themed lists are what lotr is all about, i like playing lists that were in the books and films.

And yeah, 16 legal shots a turn, hitting on threes, and fight 4, lovely

Thanks for the comments, ill probably build it to 1000 points to really get the theme

P.S Damrod is a great model, i prefer the ranger faramir to the others aswell.

It seems like a good balanced army, you seem right on the bow limit, which I usually am, and it should be a good looking army models-wise too.
