800 point Tournament Army's

Tue Feb 02, 2016 7:15 pm

I have a 800 point tournament coming up. No allies.

What army should I take?

I have Durin's Folk. Mordor. Thranduil Hall.

Ive never done tournaments so I want to be competitive but stay a bit fluffy.

What armies do well in this format?

Durin's Folk, Mordor and Thranduil's Hall are all very competitive armies that don't require any compromises in theme when creating a good tournament army.

You could pick according to which is your favourite, or have a look at the scenarios and see if it affects your choice. For instance, if there are a couple of 'To the Death' style scenarios, Dwarfs are a terrific choice as it plays to their strengths of durability and damage output. If there are a couple of 'Reconnoitre' or grab the objective style scenarios, you might do better with Elves, who are faster moving and ignore terrain etc.

Would lots of vault wardens do well?
What about Floi?

They are expensive, so I use them in moderation.

What about Floi?

He's fantastic. There is almost always an enemy rule worth disabling! You have to play him a few times to really see why he's one of the best dwarf heroes in the game, but he's definitely worth including.

Perhaps post what sort of models you want to use, and some of the people on this forum can help you fine tune a list.
