View Full Version : Alliances?

08-07-2008, 00:19
Can anyone help me understand alliances a little better? I play dwarves and am a fairly new player, and would like to get some minis so they can have an alliance with a race that has more mobility. I know they can ally with some men, but those alliable factions don't seem to exist. Do people just pick some rohan, Gondor, etc. figures and paint/mod them to fit factions like the Men of Dale? Could I have, say, a regular dwarf force with just men as auxiliary cavalry, or do they need to essentially be independent forces that are just working together?

I love playing with my dwarves as they are, so don't think I am wishing I picked a race with calvary. I just want to make sure I know all of my options. Thanks for clarifications!

which dwarf list are you playing?

Erebor, though I also have the necessary heroes for Khazad Dum and Durin's Folk. To be more specific, I have Dain, Balin, Gimli, Murin, Drar, Durin, and Mardin.

the allies you can field depends on the army list you are playing
these are listed in the Legions of Middle Earth or the Khazad-Dum source book.

Erebor can ally with Ecthelion and Minas Tirith (both Gondor lists) for cavlary
