Hey, I'm very new to this game and I came up with list list to keep me going for most of my games and as something to expand upon and would like your thoughts on this list and how you would tweak it, many thanks.

Warband 1:
Uruk-hai Captain: Crossbow, heavy armour and shield.
x1 Orc Warrior: Orc bow and spear.
x8 Uruk-hai Warriors: Crossbows.

Warband 2 & 3:
Uruk-hai Shaman
x12 Uruk-hai Warriors: x4 shields, x8 pikes.

First thing that comes to my mind is that there is a 33% bow limit to your army. I don't think you can have that many crossbows.

Well there is 36 models in the army and only 10 of them are armed with ranged weapons so I think I am fine in that department, maybe the way I laid out the army confused you?

You probably just scared him. :D

Uruk-hai Captain: Crossbow, heavy armour and shield.


VRASKU!

Spend 60 pts for one of the games absolute premier archers: not only hitting on 3+ with 3 Might to back it up, but also firing his crossbow twice per turn.

Also note that the model can't benefit from his shield while he has a crossbow, so you only get D6. I recommend either drop the captain for Vrasku, or if you really think you need the D7 then drop the crossbow and spend the 5ps elsewhere.
