Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello, I'm a brand new Rings player, and am thinking of doing a Men/ Elves army. Have no idea about whats good or bad in a list, and I dont want to buy anything I'm not going to need. Let me know what you think of this list.
Rings List500 Pts - The Free Peoples Force
1 Gil-Galad (High Elf) @ 145 Pts
Heavy Armour; Shield
1 High Elf Warrior @ 44 Pts
Heavy Armour; Banner
16 High Elf Warrior @ 208 Pts
Elven Blade; Elven Bow and Shield; Heavy Armour
1 Captain of Gondor (Man) @ 55 Pts
Hand Weapon; Heavy Armour; Shield
6 Warrior of Gondor (Human) @ 48 Pts
Hand Weapon; Spear; Armour; Shield
Total Models: 25
Total Force Cost: 500
It's an ok army but in my opinion its not really worth having 1 captain and 6 men of gonder, you may as well just get a few more elves. Also Elves can be quite easily out numbered so i dont advise spending 145pts on gilgalad in such a small force, maybe just a cheaper hero or just a hgh elf captain and some more normal elven warriors.
Elrond or Arwen
5 elves with heavy armour and elven blades
5 elves with heavy armour, shields and spears
5 elves with heavy armour and elven bows
He got it from WD 300 and since he perfected the technique of Nature's Wrath and Strengthen Will cycling he can beat nearly any evil army.

I'd have to agree with Erkenbrand on the human part, they don't fill much of a void that the Elves themselves couldn't do better. Besides, pure elf armies are awesome, and very dangerous on the battlefield despite their size.
Do all the Elves have all that equipment? Seems very pricey, and would break the 33.33% limit. From the games I've seen Elves work best when doing a single thing. So the Elves that need to shoot are only equipped with bows you see.
Although Gil-Galad is pricey, I do believe he could make his points back, or at least give a good fight. Elrond as well is pretty pimp, and can take care of cavalry with Nature's Wrath.
Fix the basic Elves and drop the humans and try a pure elf force my friend
