Mordor for 800pt Tournament- Feedback

Sun May 01, 2016 3:11 am


So I'm taking the following list to a tournament in June. This tournament is designed to allow people to practice for the NOVA GT. Hence, 800pts and no allies. The scenarios that will be used are "Rescue", "Blockade" and "Seize the Price" from the Desolation of Smaug supplement. I don't own this book so I'm too familiar with the scenarios.

So anyway here's my list:

Warband 1
The Dark Marshall on Fellbeast
5 Black Númenóreans
5 Morannon Orcs w/Spears

Warband 2
The Knight of Umbar mounted on horse
5 Black Númenóreans
5 Morannon Orcs w/Spears
1 Mordor Troll
1 Mordor Orc w/Banner

Warband 3
Mordor Troll Chieftain
4 Mordor Orcs w/shields
4 Mordor Orcs w/spears
2 Mordor Orcs w/two-handed weapons

35 Models. 7 Points of Might.

3 Monsters
2 named Ringwraiths
Heavy infantry shield walls
2 banners (The Dark Marshall)
Competitive and Thematic :D

Lowish numbers
No Shooting
No Cavalry
Medium-ish might
Mordor Orcs
Orc and Troll Courage
No Fury

I personally think I've got a good list here but I greatly value your feedback. Thoughts?

One way to fix the no-shooting, no fury, low numbers -problem would be of course to take the mordor troll off from Knight of Umbars already strong war band -and your monster heavy army - and with those points get a shaman and some orc trackers. The war bands should be then maybe rearranged a bit, because a new band of just shaman and trackers would be vulnerable.
