View Full Version : Sauron

which rulebook has the updated rules for Sauron in? The one with the Ancient Evil rule, and 6* Will points. So I don't mean Fall of the Necromancer. I mean the proper Dark Lord Sauron.

You would be using the Sauron in the main rule book (hardcover), or the version in the Mines of Moria (A5).

However, do note, that lest you field an Orcbased Mordor army of at least 1k pts, Sauron will realy turn the battle in your opponents favour by allowing for a very low number of Orcs.

However, Sauron, two Ringwraiths on Steeds for their Might and Will (full might, ten will, one fate), two Orc Captains and then nothing but orcs for the remaining points will make anyone think twice about bringing a smallish elite army, especially if you have some Batswarms from Fall of The Necromancer thrown in.

I only had the rules from the Necron release in UK WD, so I've missed quite a bit of that.
Thanks for that, and thanks for the tactics Neknoh.

Forgot to say this before:
Does it contain the updated profiles for the Ringwraiths, the Witch King and the Mouth of Sauron, as well as Gandalf the (slightly) White, and Saruman?
If you could help, that would be much appreciated.

Is the books ISBN 1841546607?
This is the ten digit code above the barcode. If it isn't could, somebody please tell me.

that one
it has all the latest profiles for all the characters you mentioned, and will so for a few years I'd guess?

one exception is Fall of the Necromancer, which has a "good" version of Saruman, and the Necromancer.

But don't worry, those are the core rules and they won't change for quite some time now, I would also reckomend picking up Shadow In The East though, seeing as it gives you so much more fun to add, not to mention the The Two Towers Supplementary Book.

That's soo funny (ah, Scrubs. That was a good episode).

a "good" version of Saruman
What is good about him, then?

In the WD article he lacked a couple of minor special rules and could ride a horse. Is this the same?

Good version is slightly cheaper and casts spells better but lacks the palantir. He is a member of the white council and therefore usable only by the good forces. He also doesn't like Gandalf very much.
