Hi Krispy

I might be going to the same event, if it is the one at GW Joondalup.

The Dwarf list looks good, the shieldbearer is a very interesting inclusion at this point size. I suggest upgrading the captain to a king (also unnamed) since F6 is likely to be as high as most lists are able to go for this event. 15pts more, but plus 1 Fight, 1 Courage, 1 Defence and 1 Will.

The Orc list isn't quite as solid IMHO, possibly because it's spreading points quite thin to get a hero, nazgul, shades and a shaman. If you're avoiding using fancier mordor troops like Morranon or Mordor uruk hai it might be worth considering going all the way with the orc style of spamming a lot more bodies.


1 Orc Captain (Hand Weapon; Armour; Shield)
6 Orc Warrior (Hand Weapon; Spear; Armour)
6 Orc Warrior (Hand Weapon; Armour; Shield)

1 Mordor Orc Shaman (Hand Weapon; Spear; Heavy Armour; Fury (3+); Transfix (5+))
6 Orc Warrior (Hand Weapon; Armour; Shield)
6 Orc Warrior (Hand Weapon; Spear; Armour)


1 Ringwraith +2 Might +1 Will +1 Fate
7 Orc Tracker (Hand Weapon; Orc Bow)

Just an example, but it has 34 models to compensate for the poor armour. Just flood the enemy's elite warriors with grunts :D

Orc Shaman

I like both lists better. Morranon Orcs are worth the price premium.
BTW I doubt anyone would object if you wanted to use your orc archers to count as Trackers (as long as they all counted as trackers).

True I will have to dig the archer out from where ever it was that I put them
I like both list better as I only have to paint 1 model before the event

Yeah those 2nd versions look a lot harder. I like the new dwarf one, it's definitely better.

Good luck Krispy.

Is this one of those tournaments where you take 2 armies and play both sides, or do you need to pick one of them for the day?
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

How about a Mordor Troll Chieftain for the Mordor army?
Who could stand against that at 350 points :twisted:
LOTR: 3000pts ANGMAR, 1200 MINAS TIRITH, 2000 DWARFS, 12000 ELVES. I HAVE A PROBLEM... not enough models. :mrgreen:

@Arwen one of the ones where you use both play first as one side and second as the other 2 games per opponent

@FreddieUK I could run the troll will have to change the list a lot to fit one in how would you guys run a Troll chieftain in a 350 list?
Something like this
Mordor troll chieftain
6 Orcs spears
6 Morannon orcs shields

Shaman
6 Orcs shields
4 Orcs two handed weapons
2 Morannon Orcs shields

350pts
