Is it worthwhile making a Dol Amroth force atm? As the footsloggers are all still metal.
At a pointlevel of 750 what would you get to make an effective force? They are after all a bit limited miniature wise.

Fluffwise though, what can you guys tell me about Dol Amroth? I vaguely remember that the Prince popped up in the novels but I read those 10 years ago or so... so my brain may be foggy in that regard.

I myself am doing something similar. I found out that by picking up stuff over the year since WoTR started, I've got about 2 companies of Men At Arms and Foot Knights as well as 5 companies of Swan Knights.

And yet, it's still a huge amount of money to get up to 1000 points for me (As I need another 2 companies of both Men At Arms and Foot Knights).

So to be honest, I still think it's something that comes down to how much money you're willing to invest. Plastic Swan Knights helps alleviate the pain, bu the fact is, the metal infantry still dips into your wallet.

if you were to be a little creative you could make a dol amroth force relatively cheap. filing off the trees from the shields of warriors of minas tirith and painting them up in the same styles as foot knights and men at arms is an option. simply calling them dol amroth militia or something and using the warriors of minas tirith profile should be sufficient. next, the archers from the same plastic kits could be converted to pike men. first you need to find some source of pikes. there are various online suppliers who provide miniature weaponry. now, to make sure that these warriors are dol amroth enough. a certain guy known as ebob has provided a fantastic product to assist you.

whack a few of these on the bodies of your warriors and they'll be looking good and dol amroth like in no time. Its not going to be an army of men at arms, knights and knights on foot, but i'll be a dol amroth army never the less

Yeah, I can see buying metal for the heroes and stuff, but I would never try and get metal for the rank and file soldiers.

Those heads would work great on warriors of minas tirith to make them Dol Amrothian, either foot knights or men-at-arms. Maybe put a greenstuff cape on them for the foot knights for that little extra style.
