what army does everyone play?
i play orcs and riders of rohan.
oh and ILA that's a pretty tight battle report. i never get that lucky with bows, they never wound, in the movies its like 1 arrow 1 hit 1 kill, but in the game it's like 10 arrows, 2 hits, 1 kill which is saved by fate...

from an experienced player when using army of the dead be sure to keep them away from uruk bezerkers or they will all die horribly

well i play good and evil with about 3500 evil points and 5000 good points ive always had a liking for orcs and the like but elves had a certain thing about them to grip me like the bows and armour. With my evil force i love uruk hai berserkers nightmares to fight and mordor troll cheiftains eat your heart out aragorn. But the highlight for ROTK is the ringwraiths new stats, transfix renders might heros asunder and make them vunerable to hordes of orc and trolls.

I'm collecting a Gondor Fiefdom army using the WD rules, and led by Imrahil with Knights of Dol Amroth, and a small Minas Tirith detachment. I've made rules for extra hero's, the ones present in the book in the Battle of the Pellenor Fields, like Duinhir, Hirluin and Forlong.

I recentley played a big siege, and i played good. me and my fellow defenders shot at the mumak with everything we had and it was dead in about two or three turns!
How does everyone else do with shooting?

I play gondor and Dwaves, and gobblins and warg riders.

I was thinking about getting into LOTR but i was a little confused when i heard about it. Do you collect any army you want? taht maby a stupid question but from what ive seen of it everything has been reinacting the movies. So can you be just elves and play matches againt gaurd of ministirith in a battle that never happened in the movies? Im a verterab of 40k so i am familiar with tabletop games.

I am having models from every faction except the easterlings and the undead.But havent them even assembled.
If i ever get past the second tactical DA squad and finish said army(yeah right)it will come their time.
But until then they rest in their boxes.

I played Gondor, I liked them... basic troopers were very average and easy to learn the game with. After that, expanding to the fiefdoms adds a lot of personality to the list.

WotR is basically a larger-scale version of LotR's skirmish level of gameplay. Came out after I stopped LotR, but from what I've heard, it's a fairly well-done game system, though apparently there are a few OP units/heroes in the game.

Few OP heroes such as pretty much every stinking Nazgul!!!! Especially either the betrayer or Khamul. Actually, all magic is pretty OP, especially Ruin and Darkness (and guess which armies get those........ Evil of course). As far as i'm concerned:
FOR DOL AMROTH, AND FOR THE PRINCE!!!!!!
