I think the new books are welcome.
The new warbands makes it feel like a new game but with the same base rules set n models. (unlike cowboys which was the same rules but different models etc)
Building my army lists takes twice as long at hte moment because I have to think.
Before I could go
Loads of dol amroth.
Now i have to go
"if I take imrahil I limit my model count to -- men. If I don't take him I lose my 12 inch banner but I can have -- more men"
"Do I take independent heroes such as cavedrake OR another captain n a warband of orcs?"
Much more intelligence is required and that I like.
I also like the updated stats for some models BUT I dont like the loss of super faramir or Gilgalad's horse.
