Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have never played at Gamesworkshop with LOTR, mostly at my friends house. My question is have you guys every played a huge game? Huge means like 3000+ on each side. We play on teams so it adds up. So it would be 3v3.
I play at least one 3000+ point game every weekend. Of course, it's always two against two with 1850 points per person.
I did lay down fire once in a 4000pt vs 4000pt game. It was my guard vs. my friends eldar and I got the first turn, so it wasn't pretty for his side.
Hourg1ass. this is a lord of the rings forum.
I have played a 1000 point game (see battle report) and that took longer than you would think. The game system just isn't made for such big games unless you have lots of heroes but then it gets a bit boring. I would try to stick to 1500 most unless it is a multiplayer or you are doing a recreation of a big battle (pelennor or last alliance)
