Interesting forces there, very interesting.

In your good 1 army you have 23 knights of minas tirith then under them you have 2 knights of minas tirith, what is the difference between them?

For the evil one try to get a few captains in and a banner or two.

Overall good ideas for the good forces, with the higher speed of the horse you will be able to use hit and run tactics, and with the extra attack and knock down ability the cavalry get it should make it a formidably force. Especially with the armoured horses of Dol Amroth (D 6?).

isn't the evil one putting too many eggs in one basket, it's scar for sure, but the prcs will do nothing if sauron gets destroyed.

Lord Gordonis
28-11-2005, 18:17
yep very true but i am going try it out sometime, another evil force is:

2 Mumanks 550pts

50pts worth of warriors of some sort

600pts 'ish'

Remember the rules for when your army breaks. Also don't forget that you will have to split our evil force for one of the scenarios.

If you want to by Mumaks, then they do not come with anything else riding in them, just the captain on the top.

Lord Gordonis
01-12-2005, 22:41
yep i know about that, plus mumaks cant hold objectives, thats why i have got harad warriors on foot, most likely, tries the Sauron force on tuesday against a dwarf force and it was a minor good win as well which wasnt to bad, i will have to see how the other lists work out as well.

Pertinax
02-12-2005, 07:48
I fear that only 50 points of warriors will get wiped out really rather fast...

Lord Gordonis
02-12-2005, 08:41
Yep quite true but its a fun list to play with tho, lol......

Pertinax
02-12-2005, 19:32
On the other hand, have you tried playing the Dol Amroth army? It strikes me as a hard punch, but if it doesn't get to charge, it gets punished.

Lord Gordonis
03-12-2005, 09:59
well that army list was just a bit of fun really, but if i am going to do that it would cost me £175 to do it, yeah do agree with u if they do get the charge the evil force will get smashed to peices, but on the other hand they are D7, and D6 horse owie.

heres my goblin force:

Durburz 60pts

Moria Goblin Shamen 45pts

2x Cavetrolls w/hand wpn 160pts

Moria goblin drum 100pts

Moria goblins w/ shields x15 75pts

Moria goblins w/ spear x14 70pts

total 600pts what do u think

Pertinax

Here's another 600pt army for you.

Duburz 60pts (1)
Moria Goblin Shaman 45pts (1)
3x Moria Goblin Captains w/ sheilds 120pts (3)

12x Moria Goblin w/ orc bow 60pts (12)
13x Moria goblin w/ shield 65pts (13)
13x Moria Goblin w/ spear 65pts (13)

CaveTroll w/ Troll Chain 85pts (1)

Moria Goblin Drum 100pts (2)

600pts exactly (46 models)

It's quite important to have a few captains with the goblins to help a few more combats over a larger area and the stand fast rules, with their improved courage, should pay dividends.

Edit: Also it's possibly to exchange the drum for another cavetroll and more goblins if you wanted to.

I've played a few times recently against a full rohirrim force. And I can safely say that my Harad will take them pretty much every time.

This is due to my being able to out number them. By holding them in combats either by careful placing of troops, or by heroicly moving into them, then they are finished as they lose all the cav bonuses.

Sure they are faster than my foot troopers, but they die just as easily in combats. And if they are in combats for more than the round that they charge, then they are in trouble.

In my experience, you have to have something on foot too.

cool, got the ticket on sat, so need to start playing games, lots of them hehe, nice list do u think the drum is worth taking tho (i know the rules for it) its 100pts for a -1C for anybody within 18".


@Pertinax: yeah quite true, what does ur harad force include??

Ash599
19-12-2005, 12:32
Im not the biggest fan of the drum but it does allow you to reroll combats. But hey you could always take another cave troll and 3 more goblins instead of.

Lord Gordonis
19-12-2005, 12:38
Yep very true indeed

I dunno why you don't go for mordor, orcs equal the average mans fight value so will hold them up for miles longer than perhaps a number of goblins would. They also have a good selection of extremely powerful creatures e.g. Shelob, who can knock over cavalry. Ok her flee rule sucks but now you can use will aswell as might to add to the courage tests, so she should pretty much pass that with her already good courage value. Shelobs fight value of 7 makes her even more valuable than a troll in a multiple combat. Imagine surrounding Aragon, Boromir, Elrond with 5 orcs w/ sheilds, shelob, + supported with loads of spears. Shelobs fight value of 7 insures you'll win along with all those dice your bound to get 1x 6. Then they're knocked over or trapped in either case, and they're as good as dead. Mordor Trolls aswell are just ace. Plus if you like a small number of cavalry so the enemy cant outmaneuvre you, you can take some warg riders.
Here's a suggestion:

MouthOfSauron w/ ArmouredDarkSteed 75pts (1)
Shelob 90pts (1)
Grishnakh 45pts (1)

16xOrc Warrior w/ Sheild 96pts (16)
16x Orc Warrior w/ Spear 96pts (16)
8x Orc Warrior w/ OrcBow 48pts (8)
8x Orc Warrior w/ 2-Handed Weaps 48pts (8)

MordorTroll 100pts (1)

598pts 52models. They'll have to kill 26 models before you have to start taking any courage tests.

You've got all those orcs to soak up bowfire, a fast moving model in Shelob who can easily take out cavalry. MoS who can get about the battlefield supporting orcs with his F4 2A 2W and the ability to transfix other heroes to make them vulnerable for your orcs to pile on.

personally im not a fan of gobbos at the Gt in at least 3 of the 4 scenarios you want at least some troops that move fast and gobbos just can't do this IMHO.

Hopefully see you there i myself am taking all mounted rohan and a mordor harad combo possibly containing a wraith on beast and mumak, but we'll see.

Pertinax

My Harad force goes as follows.

King on camel (lance) 75 pts.
Chieftain on foot (spear) 46 pts.
Chieftain on foot (spear) 46 pts.
Chieftain on camel (lance) 61 pts.
Chieftain on foot (spear) 46 pts.
15 archers with spears (15x7) 105 pts.
24 spearmen (24x6) 144 pts.
6 raiders on camels (lances) (6x12) 72 pts.

Total figures: 50
Total points: 596
Total bows: 16

I'm pretty happy with it so far. It has done me well.

19-12-2005, 19:59

Pertinax
