Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Lakemen at the Battle of the Five Armies Note that the Lakemen under Bard the Bowman were in transition from their earlier form at Laketown (where they would have had only a relatively small force handling trade issues) and their later form as the resurgent Kingdom of Dale. As such their force incl...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Sindar Kingdoms in the Third Age I'm ignoring High Elf armies with lots of armored elves such as fought for Gil-Gilad in the Last Alliance. This discussion is some thoughts on how to accurately simulate the armies of Mirkwood and Lothlorien through the Third Age. Galadriel was a Noldor, but Celebor...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Yesterday I pulled out some figures from the line that I thought would work including Persian Egyptian Marines, Nubian/Etheopians, Elephants and various other allied peoples. That led to some reading on Haradrim and Easterlings. Seems like some of the chariots would work well too. I'll post some Ha...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Goblin forces from the Misty Mountains, Mount Gundabad, etc. Here are some thoughts about representing Goblin armies in Tolkien. Note that goblin and orc are synonymous in Tolkien -- orcs are bigger goblins, but he uses both words for the same guys. No racial difference. And not green. You wanna do...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Dwarven Armies in Tolkien Here are some thoughts about Dwarves in Tolkien. Note that these writeups use a draft version of battle cards for Fantasy Triumph. Neither the point costs of those battle cards nor the exact rules are finalized yet. In Tolkien military forces of dwarves are almost always h...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

All we are missing are Elves now. (You must have had them for the Battle of 5 Armies Game.) I presume Elves are pretty obvious as Elite Cav, Elite Foot and Wood Elves Raiders and Skirmishers and maybe some LIght Spear. Also, any reason why Elephants wouldn't work for Mumarkil?

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Some minor points about the Pelennor Fields army lists. Some of the choices made were determined by figure ranges, not canonical documents. There is no support for cataphracts in the Easterling forces in Tolkein. We used them because they add variety, they are cool, and we were using GW 28mm figs an...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

Bill Hupp asked for my Pelennor Fields army lists. I've got two versions of the scenario; here's the one with 9 commands, which begins just after the death of Theoden and the Witch King. Men of the West First Eored: Eomer is the General (Theoden has already gone to the hall of his fathers, and even ...

Re: LOTR Army Lists for TRIUMPH!

DK, Paul Potter has started delivering the first of the Vendel figures for our LOTR armies for Triumph! Are you at a point where you could post up at least your army lists from your Pelennor Fields game? I'd also like to begin the process of creating LOTR units from some of our other ancients figur...
