A Tale of Four Lord of the Rings Gamers, Phase One
So the first month of the challenge is on, and I've completed my 175 points of Elves. Meet the gang.
I have Arwen leading eight swordsmen and three archers, a merry little band on a romp through the forest. It comes to 175pts on the nose. Originally I was going with an Elven Captain to lead this group. He's very "fighty" but I can pick up two extra models if I drop him and replace with Arwen. Besides, I've never used magic before in all my LotR games. So that's my motivation in selecting her. Here's a more detailed shot.
So next up is another 175pts. Since this is an Elf army, I'll basically be adding more warriors as I go. Spearmen will make an appearance next time. I also plan to replace Arwen with a Stormcaller. I like that figure and would also like to check out how it works. Somewhere Elrond will show up. At 170 points he'll fulfill a month's quota for the challenge. I'll save him for when I need a break!
