    Well, I am thinking about collecting High Elves. They are great in close combat and have above average armor. I am going to get 1 box of the Last Alliance, and 2 blisters of spearmen. I think that is a good start, what do you guys think?

    Also I am going to convert my swordsmen. I will cut off their hands and put them on archers, they look much better. I will give you guys link as soon as I can find it.

    Very nice. You might (However) want to reserve that for captains.

    Sure, it looks cool, but if you try to do a really good force purely out of that, it's going to get really expensive really fast.

    And, if you give it to High Elf captains, it's easier to recgonize them on the table.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and it lands on a mime, does anyone care?

    Yeah, thats a good idea. But I just hate how High Elves are not in a ready position. Like the guy said, he wanted the position that they where in when the orcs where charging in FOTR...

    Leaving them for the captains is probably what I will do.

    really, the best units with "above average" armour, are dwaves, for 9 points, dwarf w-shield and hand weapon, defence 7, anyway, yes, high evles are probs the best army in the enitre game. my friend collects them, and ive never defeated him in close combat, or from afar, those pesky arrows...they just dont give you a challange to play with, which is just not very fun if you ask me...

    Yes Dwarfs are the wat to go if you want good armor. And their bows have the same S as Elven Bows. Khazad Guard are IMO the best warriors point for point in the game. The only thing they struggle with is Berserkers and cavalry.

    The new pose for High elves is AWESOME I am going to convert some tonight.

    NOTE:
    I played a battle the other day with Elves against Uruk-Hai.

    6 Mirkwood Sentinels
    16 High Elves w/ Elven Bows
    16 High Elves w/ Elven Blades
    2 High Elf Spearmen w/ Shield

    vs

    6 Berserkers
    4 Uruks w/ Sword
    12 Uruks w/ Sword and Shield
    8 Uruks w/ Pike

    Started 18-20" appart

    After a getting shot up for a few turns the Uruks slaughtered the elves in about 5 turns.

    Lesson for the day:
    Berserkers are point for point the most kick ass troops choice in the game.

    The key to killing Berserkers with Elves:
    Don't EVER get with in 12" of them PERIOD.
    Shoot them enough and they will die.

    im truly amazed you lost that battle, any good elf general would slaughter uruk-hai, trust me. Ive never beaten my friend with his elven hosts, simply because of their damn fight values (and possible some extremely bad luck of rolling ones ive had in the last couple of games, for instance to volley fire with 6 drawf bowmen, i rolled fire 1's) but anyway, really, that many elves should kill them easily

    oh yes, and the fact you deployed 20inc apart it abit close, dont you think? and another thing, if you charged your elves 6inc ever turn, no wonder you lost, because elves, are annoying, as in a white drawf article "theres only one elf tactic, move back 3inc and fire" etc, so, play it again, but this time, dont move, let them come to you, and kill all the uruks with no shields and pikes 1st...
