ISENGARD 1000 pts.

Lurtz (epic hero)
175 pts

Sharku's Hunters (legendary formation)
4 companies
Shield (5 pts/comp)
170 pts

Uruk Hai Warband (common)
4 companies
Captain (50 pts)
Battle Banner (35 pts)
225 pts

Uruk Hai Phalanx (common)
4 companies
Battle Banner (35 pts)
275 pts

Uruk Hai Scout
3 companies
bows (5 pts)
105 pts

Uruk Hai Berserker
1 company
110 pts

Isengard orc Warband
2 companies
Bow (5 pts)
40 pts

This will be the base of my 2000 isengard army.

Don't know if berserker worth their price in a so small army but i love the models and the rules.

Orcs are here just to spend 40 pts, i was thinking about buying some fates but they seems a little expensive.
I also need some magic, i will take Saruman for the 2000 pts army and possibly a shaman on the phalanx formation, i hope there is no need of magic in a 1000 pts army.

Any advice?

Personally I say drop the banner on the pikemen unit. It doesnt really matter if they make the charge or not and with the courage of lurtz its unlikely they will fail tests. Also you could consider dropping the warbands down to 3 companies for 1 k points. Or at least the one with def 7 since they won't die so fast.

Also Sharku's hunter unit would be 195 points not 170. The first company with him in it costs 75+25(+5 for shields) so thats 105 points, then the other 3 companies cost 30 points so 195. Seems to be a common mistake, which was pointed out to me by the GW staff here in Amsterdam.

Just to point out, its 'Uruk' not 'Huruk'.

On the manual is: "first company purchased is automatically command company and has sharku included in the base cost".

Now the base cost should be 75 pts including sharku and command company...i'm confused...

Bad mistake! :D

GW staff in Amsterdam told me, I didn't realise it at first either.

Take a normal comp of warg riders with shields and add a captain, for example. Voila 75 points, except less might and no terror unlike sharku :).

okay i would personally drop banners and orc archers which gives you lik 115pts to play around with, you could add on to the beserkers because they would be magnets to death with just one company or the could add in a troll or something just a suggestion ;)
