Rangers of Ithillian 600 Point Army List


This is my Rangers of Ithillian Army list for Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game. I have been working on painting these guys since about January and finally finished them before the Mayhem in the Mountains 2011 tournament in September. The army list was made with Army Builder.

Rules for LotR League

Recently, Thorak the founder of the Adeptus Mile High website and I have been trying to get local Lord of the Rings SBG players meeting and playing games on a more regular basis. To this end, we have been trying to organize weekly club meetings at our favorite local game store, Collectormania.

So in order to encourage people to play more games, I have written a set of rules for running a LotR league. The league is competitive but fun and is organized on a good vs evil theme.  Here is a link to a PDF of the rules.

Please feel free to download the rules and test them out.

I have also written one of the scenarios from scratch - #5 Ambush the Column. If anyone plays this scenario and has any feedback, please let me know.

Eagles Army Work in Progress

So I have received all the models for my Eagles of the Misty Mountains army for the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game.  I have written about this eagles army once before in this post, if you want to catch up.

I have begun assembling and painting the eagles.  Since this army will only be six models at the 600 points level, I wanted to put some extra work into the bases to make them really stand out. I ordered one of  Games Workshop's Lord of the Rings Terrain Packs to use to fancy up the bases.

The first eagle here is the Giant Eagle from Reaper Miniatures. He is the biggest of the Eagles by a significant margin, so he will make an impressive Gwaihir I think. This figure is a giant hunk of metal, so I decided to mount him on a piece of brass rod instead of plastic. I did the same for the other eagles as well, although plastic would probably have worked for them. The statue on the base is from the GW terrain pack.
