LotR - interest piqued
Have been perusing the GW site's LotR minis and I like the look of the Elves and the Easterlings.
I remember that LotR was really big when it came out a few years ago, but now it is really only the blue-shirts and a few local fanatics that play it. Because of that, I don't really want ot sink lots of money into it if I get little mileage out of it. They used to play the skirmish version of the game (I think) way back when, but now whenever I see anyone painting up their LotR they are doing masses of trays, So I guess they all play the bigger version now. What sort of 'points' values do folks play to normally (as a guide we play 2k 40K and FB here)? And how many units/ cash does it cost to get an army going? I seem to remember you needed a good and bad army; does that apply for the big game? I will ask for a demo next time I am in if I can knock together an army for £100-£150.
